This week has been pretty interesting. Monday we had some really great lessons. We got to visit with this less active who was getting open heart surgery. She is only 29 years old, as we visited with her she asked if after her surgery we could come a re-teach her the lessons. We are super excited about that. She was able to receive a priesthood blessing. That was really neat!
We then went and saw another less active. We watched some Mormon Messages with her. She bought a ton of treats. It was really fun! Then we spent the rest of the night packing Sister Bracey's stuff.
Tuesday we headed to Pensacola. We had Zone Training. That was really great, we talked about having charity and being BOLD! It was really well said. We then had a zone activity, but I couldn't stay because Sister K, Sister P and I had to drive to Fort Walton to drop Sister P. off with her new companions. That was about a hour and a half drive. ..... we used 99.9 miles that day thank goodness they gave them back to us.
When we got home it was about 6 o'clock at night. Sister K. unpacked.
On Wed. We worked at the thrift store. We had a great lesson with J.. She is progressing so well.. We the tried to see the R. but they were not home. We then had some rain.. all day. We had a lesson with these two young girls who their dad is a member but they aren't. That went good. We got to know them a little bit. They don't talk at all.
Thursday we had a member give us a lot of food. She gave us bread and fish, that was really nice of her. We then went to Fort Walton for an appt. Sister C. then took us out to dinner. We also had a nice service activity with J. It was her daughter's birthday, so we helped to get things ready for her party, the things we do as missionaries. The ward mission leader found out we were trying to set him up with someone in Destin..... that was super funny. I tried to deny everything but I couldn't it was all Sister Bracey's doing anyways, hahaha...
Friday we did a little family history. We are trying to understand how to use it more. Then we had a lesson and lunch with Sister Y. Then we went to help L. with her family history. That was nice, we found some really cool stuff last week and are now trying to find more on another line.
Then we saw the R. They made us food, they are so funny! haha... I hope y'all enjoyed the voice recordings... if you didn't get them ask my mom.
We then went and packed for our exchange then we had dinner with Sister C. She took us out to eat at this Italian place. That was good., then we went to movie night. Sister N. came her for exchanges.
Saturday we were on exchanges and we did some service at the thrift store.. Then we had a lesson with our new investigator S. That was a bit weird of a lesson, but he is super excited about the gospel.... SUPER excited! Then we saw some less actives. After the L.'s took us out to lunch to New York Pizza. Then we did some contacting. We tracted one house and got a new investigator out of it. This guy we talked to wasn't interested but he said that he never sees his neighbor go to church.. so we were like okay maybe we will go knock at his door. There was a big fence around it so Sister Nelson was like. "I don't like fences" well, I don't like them either but I was like..... mmm what the heck.. YOMO (your only a missionary once) so we went and knocked, no one answered but we knocked again for salvation and this older guy came to the door, he invited us in right off the bat, but we couldn't go in because there wasn't a female there, so he came outside and we talked for a while, we taught the Restoration and gave him a Book of Mormon and also set up a return appointment. That was a really neat YOMO experience. Then we went to our ward blue and gold scout dinner... A member invited us to come eat dinner with them there, which was nice. We then played volleyball and exchanged back.
Sunday we had 3 investigators come to church! B. his son and S. That was good they came..... After church we did studies and then we finished weekly planning. We had dinner with the L's. I don't know what else went on this week.. but it was all good. I love y'all and hope you have a great week! I love you!
Love, Sister Hannah Seegrist
