On Tuesday was our distinct meeting! We got a little creative with our pictures... Haha
We are in the process of cleaning out our area book! We have a lot of investigators and potentials in the Elders area, so we decided to go through them all and see if there was any potential! We actually found
2 new investigators! The first man we met was Roy, he knows a few Mormons and has actually read some of the Book of Mormon before! We were able to share more with him and invite him to read and pray about
it! Yay! The other man we met is Christopher! He invited us in right as we opened the door! (But we are sisters, so we had to talk to him outside) we taught him the whole restoration! And he said if he receives his answer that our message is true! That he'll be baptized!!! So amazing! There are some awesome people in the area book!!

We had a tender miracle the other day! Last week we met a guy named Wade. He is so nice and friendly and shafted talking with us right away, we weren't able to get into the restoration, but we were able to
talk about other aspects of the church! We saw him again this week, and we ended us teaching the law of chastity, haha alright. He mentioned in our conversation that he is trying not to swear anymore. We asked him if he prayed about it, and he said he doesn't pray to God about little things like that. We taught him more about prayer and how God loves us so much and wants to hear from us. We invited him to pray, but he was shy about, so instead he had Sister Handy say a prayer, and then I said a prayer. After I said a prayer we looked at him and he had tears in his eyes!
This weekend was stake conference. I love going back and seeing my previous stake! It's so good to see them all again! Driving to stake conference and back took way longer than we thought, and we ended up
only having 4 hours to finish all of our goals! We needed 1 other lesson, 1 new investigator, 1 less active member lesson, referrals received, and 1 referral contacted! So we had a lot that needed to be done, in such short time! We calculated that we had about 30 minutes before dinner with the Millers. So we prayed and tried to figure out what was most beneficial. After we prayed, a lady named Mary came into our mind. We tried her and she was home. Right when she answered she explained that she wants to attend our church next week! Wow! Okay awesome! We taught her the word of wisdom and invited her to pray about what we shared with her. We also set a time for us to come back!!! Wow! We just had our other lesson, and new investigator! We got back in our car and it was exactly 30 minutes!!! Wow! We headed to
dinner and we started asking them, who they could refer us to to try! They gave us a name, and then another, and then 2 others! Wow! It's been so hard for us to get referrals but then all of the sudden we got 4 right there! As we were leaving their home, one of their (referrals) their neighbor, was outside! We got to talk to him right there and then and invite him to hear our message! Wow! We achieved 4 of our goals and that night we were seeing sister Gene so goal 5 was completed! It was an amazing way to end off the week!! Ahaha yes!
Side note: We deep cleaned our kitchen today! We had 3 garbage bags full of junk to get rid of! Wow! Missionary apartment are nuts!
