I have been so excited to talk to you guys all week! Ahh I love Mondays! 🙂 Well this week had potential to be a lot better then it actually was… But it was still amazing! We had so many appointments set up because of our miracle week last week and no joke every single one fell through! Haha And we got stood up twice for church tours! But that’s alright because that’s kinda how missionary work goes sometimes! We had transfer meeting on Tuesday and it was so great. In the Wa-Tac it has been tradition to have the entire mission go to every transfer meetings but the first presidency just changed the rules so now we aren’t allowed to have mission wide meetings any more and that was probably the saddest announcement ever! There is such a special spirit with the whole mission being gathered together and it is always so fun being surrounded by other missionaries. The spirit in this last transfer meeting was so amazing and I left with so much motivation to get right to work and to make this the best transfer of my life! 🙂
Well we had another miracle Thursday! Haha I don’t know why but Thursdays are when all the miracles happen for us! It is amazing! We meet with our ward mission leader on Thursday nights and we always go in there just beaming with happiness because of the miracle that always seems to happen right before we get to his house! Haha we have the best ward mission leader in the world! 🙂 Anyways so here’s the story for this Thursdays miracle. So we were knocking as normal and we saw a girl speed walking down the street and we just happened to cross paths perfectly. I almost didn’t talk to her because she was walking so fast but right after she passed us I yelled hello to her and she stopped and turned around. We asked if she would be interested in hearing a message about Jesus Christ and she happily said yes and told us to walk with her to her dance studio! So we did and we ended up walking for about 35 minutes with her and taught her all about the restoration and the Book of Mormon and she LOVED it all. She was so happy to learn that God has given us more of his word through the Book of Mormon. Ahh so cool how God placed her perfectly in our path. Her name is Joy and she just got married and is the cutest girl ever. We are seriously best friends with her and have been in contact like every day this week! I can’t wait to teach her more! 🙂
Our less active families all showed up at church again yesterday and it made us both super happy! We have been teaching the missionary lessons to all our less actives and that has been so much fun. We haven’t had very many opportunities to teach lately so this has been so great getting back into the teaching mode again! 🙂
Love you all sooo much!!! I have the best family and friends in the world and I feel so blessed to know each of you! Thanks for all you do for me!! Have a great week! 🙂
Love Sister Horgesheimer
We took a pit stop on the way to transfer meeting in Gig Harbor! Washington is BEAUTIFUL!!
