Conference/Easter!! April 6th
This week was just plain crazy!!! We did exchanges with some sisters this week so half of the week I was with different companions. That was interesting for sure! Then Sister Lipke and I had to go to St. George and spend the night there. It was a lot of driving; But St. George is the best! Its soooo big compared to little Richfield!
We had a mission leadership council at President Center's home. For me, only being in my 2nd transfer, I sure learned a lot! After the meeting we had to stop by the visitor’s center next to the St. George temple. We got out of the car right at the same time as this other man did. He comes up to us (there were 4 of us sisters). He was kinda drunk but he starts talking and we find out he is a member of our church. He wanted to look at the temple. He had so much regret in his life and he wants to go back to the temple one day. We showed him the video of Christ and it was really powerful. Us 4 Sister stood there on the street and bore testimony of Christ and the atonement. It was really cool. I know he felt the spirit. But it’s up to him if he will make changes in his life.
On Friday we had a meeting in Manti! It was really good. Sister Lipke and I taught a training there as well. Then we drove to the Manti temple and took some pictures! Got to see two temples this week! Conference on Saturday was so uplifting and it was the best way to end a busy week.
Despite being so busy this week, we also had so many miracles. I know the Lord is looking out for us. A few weeks ago we met this man at Little Cesar Pizza. We talked to him for a second and then he randomly told us about his sick two month old baby who just come home from the hospital. It was so out of the blue but he told us about it. Then we had to go and we sadly didn’t get any information from him. We knew he needed the gospel in his life though!! About 2 weeks later, we were walking to our car and he sees us!!! We found him!!! (or he found us!) AHH!! he told us to come meet his miracle baby..Then BAM. We taught him right then about Jesus Christ and he wants to know more! It was amazing. Heavenly Father was looking out for him!!!
Sunday was a great day! General Conference was amazing and everyone was home for us to visit. Sunday night we got to take part in an Easter Convienio. Many of the different churches of Richfield came together for an Easter program. Sister Lipke and I did some reading from the program and there was a bunch of musical numbers. It was all about Christ and it was really cool to see the community come together. I got to sit on stage next to the Pastor of the COWBOY CHURCH!! how cool is that?! It was a great way to spend Easter Sunday.
Miracles are happening here!! This next week will be even more busy! Sister Lipke and I will be in Price for a few days. And then get to go to Manti again. But we know that we are not alone in our efforts!! have a lot to do this week. We will not be in Richfield very much this week. But I have faith that we can do it with the Lords help!! The mission is the best. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!! I LOVE MY JOB!!
