Sooo, I'm not sure where to begin. This whole week was epic! It started last Monday with an amazing lesson with the Price family! We then taught a new investigator named Michael about the restoration and he had tons of good questions! He's expressed that he's already very strong in his church but that he would love to learn more! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how curiosity killed the cat, or in this case, how the church continues to grow! Those who seek the truth, will find it! :) Sorry that was a stretch.. it made sense in my mind.
Tuesday we had a great lesson with our little 9 year old investigator Logan! We talked about our bodies being a temple, on the inside and out. I felt quite rebuked during our lesson for eating all the holiday goodies...but our diets start tomorrow :) We also found a new investigator named Hugh Tuesday evening. He stood there at the door in his boxers for a few minutes while deciding whether or not he wanted us to come back.. he made the right choice in the end, but the spirit definitely was encouraging us to get a move on. ohh Las Vegasans..
Wednesday was New years eve! We had a really neat District meeting in the day where our investigator Liz actually came to the meeting and was taught by other missionaries so they could gain practice, as well as other members who came to roleplay as well. It was super cool and Liz loved it! We had to be in at 6 because of the crazy shenanigans that go on down on the strip..so we got some Panda Express and retired to our apartments to write letters and drink sparkling cider for the rest of the evening.. well more like until 9:30 when we retired to bed. Best new years gift ever. SLEEP.
Thursday was great. Unfortunately my memory is failing me, but we did have a super good lesson with Tawny and Aaron! (Price). They're gaining a stronger and stronger testimony of the Book of Mormon everyday. It is such an incredible experience to literally see people's faces light up as the spirit testifies of the truth! Logan also had his baptismal interview Thursday evening and passed with flying colors! He had his mom quiz him the whole car ride over.. he is so ready and excited to be baptized!
Friday was nuts.. we were supposed to have exchanges with some other sisters, but Thursday evening my ears caught on fire.. at least they felt like it. By the time we got home, my back was completely covered in hives, and they were quickly spreading to the rest of my body. Didn't get much sleep that night to say the least.. and friday morning we made a quick trip to urgent care. The nurse who came in thought he was pretty funny.. he goes "Well I've got some good news and some bad news. Bad news: you have to get a shot in your rear end..Good news: you get to choose which side you want it on!" Ohh man. I'm sure my face was priceless.. Long story short, and 24 hrs later.. I am allergic to either walnuts/pecans.. and also trying to do missionary work while taking benodryl every 4 hours is no bueno. I was pretty much dead to the world. But I'm much better today! Our sweet mission president came and gave me a blessing and all is well :)
Saturday: Logan's baptism! The spirit was so strong and Logan was practically glowing! Ahh, teaching little kids is the best :) We also saw tons of miracles on Saturday and were able to find 3 new people to teach. One of them named Roger told us that he had been wanting to start taking lesson again and would really love to come to church!
And the last miracle happened this morning. Tawny got to Mosiah in her reading and decided she wants to name her baby (she's 3 months pregnant) Mosiah Valor Price! MVP. We about died! Love this family to death!
Have an amazing week! Love you all.
