Well hello everyone!!
Welp... my heart hurts. Haha. We got transfers figured out. I'm peacin' out. I was NOT expecting this to happen.... We were expecting (and kinda told by Pres) that someone was going to double cover Young Single Adult Ward and we were under the impression that we were staying and the elders were being shotgunned out. But!! President is completely unpredictable... I just love this Zone so much! They are like my brothers! No other time have I cried when I left an area.... but this time I did. It was really really pathetic haha. BUT! The mission life must go on... new people to meet, new souls to find. It will be quite the adventure!! I'm bouncing' to Chico! Haha. I'm super excited! A bunch of our zone here is going up there too. Haha. So it's like I never left! Hah! Jk.. but my new comp will be Sister Singleton! I have heard absolutely nothing about her except that she just got out of training! So! I'm stoked to work with that greenie fire!! ️ WOOP WOOP!! I'm really excited! The reason I called this weeks email the 4 C's is because I have served in Corning, Colusa, C-Heights and now Chico. Haha. Pretty weird!
It has been a really good week! We have been super busy! This week we got 3 new investigators! That was SUCH A BLESSING! The first one's name is Mary. We were looking for a less-active's and knocked on Mary's door! We shared the Prince of Peace with her and briefly mentioned the Restoration and gave her a pamphlet like they encouraged us to do in Mission Leadership Committee Meeting. Needless to say it worked!! Haha. She said she was really busy with school and stuff so we were a little skeptical if she was really interested. So we got her number and texted her a couple days later. She didn't respond until the next afternoon. so we thought we were just going to have to hunt her down again. But she said she wanted to meet with us so we set an appointment for this Friday. YAAAY!!!!!
Another one, his name is Jesus. He is a LA's little brother. We did the same thing and he was willing to let us come back! WOOP WOOP!!! Haha. Then we finally got to meet with Tyler again... kinda. Haha. He is always mess'in with something on his truck. Haha. But we didn't get to share the video with him but we did with his mom, Cindy. She's super nice. A little rough around the edges but SO down to earth. ️ she says she's not interested but she really loves our videos and what we share.. hahah. So we just keep going over and sharing things with them.
We got to see Becky! That was good! It's funny, I realize when we go into "teaching mode" she TOTALLY shuts off.. the look on her face was like "blah blah blah..." haha. So!! We showed her the video, talked about it for a second and just talked to her about things. She didn't really know about the spirit world. So we explained that to her and stuff. We just have to figure out what she's curious about instead of just coming in and cramming stuff down her throat. Because even though it may be good for her, she's one that will just totally resist. So we have just backed off with her and let her do her thing. We still invite her to things sometimes. But the things that we invite her to she already knows when, where and everything. So we just let her decided. And she came to church, Book Of Mormon class and FHE! So the apparently that was just the spirit telling us to just give her some space. She seems a lot happier too.
Here's a cool miracle that happened this week! So we have been trying to visit this one kid named Jake. We have talked to his mom and grandma each time and they're super nice. They always let us in and offer us something to eat or drink or whatever. But we haven't been able to meet him. So this time, right before we went to dinner we went to visit them. We showed up and Jake wasn't home but his grandma offered us some soup. I couldn't resist because I was starving! And it smelled AMAZING! Sooo... I indulged. Haha. But we shared the video with them and as I was saying the closing prayer GUESS WHO WALKED INTO THE HOUSE!!!! Oh yes... it was Jake! His grandma called him back in and he talked to us and stuff. It was just awesome - I felt the spirit nudge me to go see him even though we had tried to see him SO many times. And it was such a blessing to be able to talk to him. Ah!! Heavenly Father is amazing! I love Him!
Easter was awesome! We just had church and talked about the Savior! I just love it! We had dinner with Bishop and Sister Mealey, each of their dads and Becky came too! That was a riot! Haha. It was really nice! I enjoyed it!
Also! Something CRAZY! Haha, so Thursday night we were just getting ready for bed when we heard a knock on our door... it was past like so we were like what the heck... so I make myself decent and Sister De Leon opens the door and IT'S SEELY AND DUNCAN!! what the heck... haha. They are always just popping up outta nowhere! Haha. It was awesome to see them!
So yeah! That's pretty much the week! It's been crazy getting everything ready to go! I have way too much STUFF..... I swear I have become a hoarder... haha. Anyway! I love you guys! Have a great week!
