Small world moment. A new Elder to their district is also from Oregon... and he's Krystl Woodall's brother - what a small world.
Southside Week 10
This is the last week of the transfer. Time flies! I'd love it if sister House and I got to stay together another transfer! I can't believe that next week is the beginning of my 3rd transfer. It's craaaazy.
Last week we went to the Temple and ran out of time to email, so that's why I didn't email haha.
Sister Sutarik took us, it was the best! I love her. It was great to be able to go to the temple after 3 and 1/2 months of not having gone. Then we went to Wendy's. That was great too. :))
What was your favorite talk?
GENERAL CONFERENCE was the BEST. It was a weekend full of miracles! My fave was Larry Lawrence. He's a stud and his talk was exactly what I needed!
After the secondsession, we were getting something for dinner, and the thought came to mind to go to Chipotle. I love chipotle so it wasn't a prompting that was difficult for me to follow. Lol. The line was long, and as we were waiting, this man walked in and seemed to recognize us as missionaries. He then began talking to us as we stood in line. Turns out he's a CTA bus driver and used to pick up sister missionaries a while ago. We had a great conversation with him about why we are serving, and our purpose as missionaries. We invited him to come to a session of general conference. He gave us his number.
As the firstsession began we got a text that he was there!!!
We went in and sat by him. After the session was over, we took him on a church tour. He asked a couple questions and was very positive and happy to be there. He said that he was hoping that the Bears would win by him coming to church and missing some of the game, hahaha. He reminds me a lot of dad.
Then we walked him out to his car and gave him a Book of Mormon and a restoration pamphlet. We testified about Christ's love for him and then read the first, and last two paragraphs of the introduction with him. He read them aloud. We asked him what he thought and he just kept saying, "Wow, that's so powerful! I got goosebumps! I felt something as I read that. I just want to keep reading this!" The Spirit touched my heart as he said this, and as I witnessed this tender mercy and miracle. We set up to meet with him this evening and committed him to read the first chapter of the Book of Mormon, and the restoration pamphlet.
Also, he had done research before coming to the session and he saw a picture of the San Diego Temple and set it as his phone background. So that was great.
We also have another new investigator named Lxxx. She seems so ready! This past week we saw a lot of miracles. Exact obedience brings blessings and miracles.
I love my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ so much! I know that they are real and that they love all of you! And that they hear and answer your prayers.
Love you All!
