So this week was crazy! I'm not sure I will be able to write about it all, but I will do my best. It all startedwhen we got a snow storm and had to drive to Augusta. It was a scary drive but we made it. We then had to wait 2 hours for the other missionaries to get there. And then drive to Portland, pick up another sister and drop me off, and the rest of the sisters had to keep driving down to Manchester. So that was the start.
ThenSister Beus and I went out and about in that area. I met a member who has made a stuffed animal sewing book. Her last name is Goulders and she is amazing! I absolutely love her! The then went about trying to find and teach people, we met a quaker on the street and met some other really nice awesome people. :) And then Sister Huefner picked me up and we drove all the way back to augusta where we then drove back to waldoboro. Getting home way past our curfew and bedtime....like it was not good...
We still had to get up atand get to work. It was great. And that night I was leaving the area again so we could go on exchanges with oxford and so I quickly unpacked and then repacked and we had to go about doing all our usual stuff. We taught linda and arnez again,and then helped a lady named Melanie move some things and clean a few other things. Which was fun. And the rest of our usual stuff, because we didn't have district meeting because we had interviews .
Sowas fun. I met the people in oxford. The sisters there really have some great members that are just fantastic! They are very helpful and are very missionary minded. And the Sisters have been able to find some great investigators over there too. I love all the people there. We taught this single guy who has already made a bunch of changes in his life and it a really great guy. We also taught this Golden family who called the missionaries because they left a card and now they are learning and wanting to know more and are really comfortable in the gospel. It is cool to see how the other sister's areas are doing. :)
Thenwen't crazy because we needed to help sister brooks get ready for the storm so we stacked about a cord of wood then went into the forest to cut down our own Christmas tree. :) It is kinda sparse, but cute and is awesome. I just think it is kinda funny that we just went into sis. Brooks backyard and found a tree. We then had another lesson with Linda and Arnez. It was good. Tom was there. I can't remember if I told you all but tom and Arnez broke up and tom didn't realize he could still come to church, but we hope that he will be able to now. Then we helped the Duffy's with their tree, so that was fun getting it into the stand. All their cats we're funny when they saw it, they had to keep checking it out. Then we started our weekly planning and prepared some more for the storm.
So even when the snow comes down and the flood and whirlwinds come the lord will deliver us to those who are prepared for the gospel.
Love always and Forever,
ps, I forgot that we are also doing a Christmas challenge as a zone the 12 days of Christmas and we also had to hand out 3 Christmas DVDs. We succeeded. And today we are going to be sharing 4 Luke 2 messages and so on. It is crazy fun! we are competing with all the other districts in the zone. :)
