Spiritual Headaches

I LOVE MISSION LIFE!!! Seriously, I have so many amazing experiences here that I would never have at home!!! #blessed :) We received a training as a mission leadership from Elder Cardon of the Seventy. I swear he could see through my soul. Haha. The spirit was so strong the whole time that afterwards I had a major headache.. So we got some Cold Stone! haha:) But no worries...NO MORE TREATS STARTING A FEW DAYS AGO:) I will hold strong! Trying to master my body is a struggle haha. It's worth it!!

So we were knocking doors and this guy answered, his face was in total shock. Sister Meyers and I figured that he wasn't used to two girls knocking on his door. We got a return appointment to come back. His face was literally shocked the whole time. I was on exchanges but Sister Meyers went back to teach him and he said to her "sorry I was in such shock when I answered the door, I was literally on my knees praying that God would someone to direct his life. I told him I need them right now." And right then we knocked on the door!! Oh my goodness! He accepted baptism, and we are so excited for him:) God prepares the hearts of his children. We just need to be His hands and follow the spirit. So amazing!! I love being a missionary!!

It's getting colder here but no snow yet! Dang it I want it to come haha:) We received more training from Elder Cardon at a Zone Conference. We talked about how the Spirit truly is the role in conversion. I really enjoyed it! Also Elder Bennett from the Seventy spoke to us at stake conference! It was a spirit packed week. He kept telling us how Heavenly Father is so proud of us. He is proud of what we are doing. And to not beat ourselves up, cause that isn't of God. I loved it it was beautiful!!

Ken got baptized!! Eek!!:) a wonderful member drove us to the other side of the mission so I could witness this ordinance, it was a beautiful day:) I am so happy for him! In his testimony he spoke of how he doesn't even remember what sister Barton and I said on the doorstep all he knew is he wanted to learn more. He said that when we knocked he was secretly hoping it was the church people. He was ready to come into Christ. I'm so happy for my brother!!:)

Thanksgiving!!:) I'm so grateful for all of you and your examples to me!!:) I'm so so thankful for my amazing parents and sister!! I miss you with all my heart. Have a great week everyone!!:) remember to thank the big Man upstairs:) He has given us everything:)
