Another wonderful week over and done here in Pavia! I am loving my life and just SO happy to be a missionary! It is literally the best thing ever. Everyone needs to try it sometime!!! We had the most incredible miracle ever this week. The story is a little long, so i will try and condense it...but you gotta know all the deets and it is def worth hearing!!
|At the train station....where it seems like we always are!|
We were really grateful that Heavenly Father placed her in our path and that we were able to help her make it to her appointment on time. BUT it does not end there! We were sitting on the train home and Sorella Woods and I both had the impression that we needed to put a Book of Mormon in her bag, we thought that might be a little weird but hey, we are missionaries and everything we do is pretty weird! And you cannot ignore a prompting! So we wrote a heartfelt note in a Book of Mormon and slipped it in her bag. That night we went to meet her at the train station and she was soooo kind and said that she wants to keep in contact with us and that she was SO grateful. We were hoping that she would find the BOM and that she wouldn't hate us! We didn't hear anything from her until the next morning when she sent us the most incredible text that i have probably ever received in my WHOLE life. i wish i could write it word for word...ahhhh it just gives me the chills every time i think about it! She said that morning she had opened up her bag and found the Book of Mormon along with our note. She said she cried many happy tears and had very many emotions of gratitude to Heavenly Father for placing us two very special young ladies in the right place at the right time...she said that she has never taken the wrong train, ever and that she knew it was for a reason. She said that she looks forward to continuing on her path to find her purpose and keeping in contact with us...the best part is, she said...My grandma always told me when I was small that I would be the wife of a prophet...who knows!
Ahhhhhhhh it was the most amazing miracle ever. It had absolutely nothing to do with us. It really taught me how much we are simply instruments in Gods hands in this work! (Mosiah 23:10) He makes it all happen. There were so many things that happened that day that were just perfect so that we would meet her and that this could happen. I know that God placed her in our path for a reason and I am SO grateful that we were in tune enough with the spirit to follow its promptings and to be able to change someones life! This work is the most amazing thing ever and I am so incredibly blessed to be a part of it. I know that people are being prepared and that this work WILL GO FORWARD.
We also had another cool miracle..we were able to get a BAP DATE. holla. It is with the son of one of our less actives, J...well she is not less acitve anymore...HOLLA! anyways...he is 10 years old and his name is N. He RULES. He loves coming to church, singing in primary, and reading and praying! He is really excited about his baptism and we are really excited about helping him prepare!
We got a new bishop in our ward this week! Which was crazy and unexpected! It made me think a lot about you guys though.The new one will do a wonderful job!!
