Dear family and friends,
I completely procrastinated this letter today... Not because I don't like telling y'all about life as a "brownie" in the Georgia Atlanta mission, but because... LIFE IS CRAZY! haha :)
Anyways, we had a MIRACLE WEEK! I might have said that last week, but this week was even better! Every day is really busy and we do our best to talk with everyone, so it's hard to get trunky haha. ;)
Here's a copy and paste for y'all. Just so y'all can catch a glimpse at our crazy, miracle-filled week!
The Lord has been guiding us to those who need us. We have had several days this week where we have met people who needed prayers at that exact moment. All of them were struggling in some way or another with trials that recently occurred in their lives. I love how the Lord guides us to the right places at the right time! As long as we have been doing our best to follow the Spirit, we have found those who need us. :)
We went on exchanges with the Sharpsburg sisters on Friday,
and it was fantastic! They h
adbeen struggling a bit with finding new investigators, so we centered our focus on finding. And because of our faith, the Lord again led us to those who needed us! (And we were able to have a fun time, too :))
Because I'm so new to the area, we almost got lost, but we stopped and prayed for guidance, and then the Spirit led us to a place we needed to go finding. We were blessed with two new investigators from it! :)
We followed up later in the week with them and one of them wants to be baptized! And when we finished the lesson with her, we were walking back to the car when we saw another woman outside painting and stopped to ask if she needed a prayer. She immediately said yes and opened up to us about how she was having a hard time with her family and really needed us at that moment! It was another powerful lesson and she was touched and wants us to come back!
So y'all, as I've said before, life is beautiful. And we have the power to change lives. All we have to do it take the time to listen to the Spirit, and trust in the Lord's will. As we do so, the Lord guides us to those who need us.
My invitation to you this week is to be aware of those around you. Take the time while you're out and about to look up and appreciate God's children! Compliment someone, share a smile, and be happy. I promise that you will make someone's day and you might even answer someone's prayer!
Keep smiling, and have a blessed week. I love y'all!
