This week was so good! Happy Pioneer day! I am so grateful for all the pioneers who paved the way for us today! Yesterday at church this stat from someones talk blew my mind! It took 90ish days for the pioneers to cross the plains and about 70 thousand pioneers made this trek. Today in about 90 days missionaries around the world baptize 70 thousand people. Isn't that amazing! Gosh I am so grateful that I get to be a small part of this great work!
Okay can I tell you all of the miracles that happened this Friday! Friday after weekly planning we were so pumped to go work in our area. Because of p-day, zone conference, exchanges, and my head we hadn't gotten much time to work in our area yet. We rushed from weekly planning to a member finding visit which went really well. The East's are recent converts and they loved getting to learn about the Restoration of the Gospel of Christ again from the missionaries. Then after that we walked around in their area and it was so hot! We decided to go get a frozen hot chocolate to cool down. Well we walked into Bigbys and there was the biggest line ever! (I guess everyone in Rochester had the same idea we did) We talked to a couple of the people around us and made some texts and calls while we waited. The woman in front of us paid for our drinks! She said she knew a member who's son was on a mission and she always likes to serve the missionaries when she sees them, because this member family has done so much for her. The cashier was also one of the nicest people I have ever met. We were the last in the long line so we got a minute to talk to him. He told us about how he lived in Utah and how great of a job we are doing. He said we brought a smile to his day! We had dinner with a member family they were so sweet and then we went to a lesson at the park where we regularly go contacting. On our way to meet up with Dave this guy on a bike rode up to us and stopped. He asked if we were on our way to an appointment. We replied yes but we could meet with him the next morning. He agreed and we swapped information. (We did meet with him the following morning and it went really well!) Dave our miracle from the last couple of weeks just keeps going. He brought his friend and his girlfriend to his lesson. It went really well. While we were walking with them to the spot we were meeting I was answering some of Dave's questions from what he read in the Book of Mormon. When we sat down his girlfriend Anila pointed at the Book of Mormon I was holding and asked me if she could have one of 'those books' too. It was an awesome lesson! The spirit was so strong and we really taught in unity as a companionship!
I hope y'all are able to see the miracles! I love you all so much!
