This week has been full of miracles! I testify that the Lord's tender mercies are upon us each day. He is ever reaching out to us as we seek to touch the lives of others.
We set high goals this past Thursday (that is when we do weekly planning), and saw many miracles that came from it. There are great blessings that come from opening your mouth!
1. Random street contacting works! We found a woman who had before met with missionaries and had even attended church! She was really excited to meet us, and we look forward to helping her progress further. :)
2. CLAUDETTE CAME TO CHURCH!! We were SO excited!! It was amazing to see her there! I am so excited for her. She is progressing so much. She told us that she has been reading the Book of Mormon, and she's already in 1 Nephi 10!
So here's a little smidgen of my everyday life. ;)
The weather here is very moody. One day it feels like a beautiful spring morning, and another day it is bitter cold, rainy, and gloomy. It is so random!
The people are fantastic. I have met so many different people. It's opened my eyes to the wide varieties of personalities and cultures that are in the world. There are a lot of Jamaicans here! (They're really loud and have spunky personalities--makes life really interesting!) It's so fun to talk to all the different people in Georgia. :)
The food is almost normal... Except for a few things. Cornbread and boiled peanuts are very common here. I tried boiled peanuts for the first time recently and it was... interesting. Not at all what is expected. They taste nothing like peanuts. But they're good... I think. ;)
My challenge for you this week is to try something new! And have fun with it. :)
You are all so amazing. I pray for you frequently. May the Lord bless you as you seek His guidance in your life.
Have a blessed day,
