How has everyone's week been? This week has kind of been a weird Blur..... but it has been a nice one! :)
Monday we spent most of the p-day with the Y's which was fun! They took us to Walmart and they did Sister Kirtons Makeup! :) That was fun!
Tuesday was so great!! We had a wonderful Zone Training. We learned from our Zone Leaders and our Sister Trainer Leaders some wonderful things. They taught about Effective OYM'S (TALKING TO EVERYONE, open your mouth) We also talked on referrals and on finding families! It is becoming more and more of a push in finding families. Which is fine by me! :) Families are so amazing to teach! To be able to bring them together and help them reach the goal of an Eternal Family! After zone training we played kickball. That was pretty fun! I did get a little sunburned, which is weird because I don't normally get burned, but it was fun! I really love our zone! It is so amazing to me how many friendships you really can develop in the mission! The Mission really is the BEST choice ever! Anyone thinking about serving a mission... DO IT! You will NEVER regret it! If you don't know if you should serve, I would encourage you all to PRAY about it! It truly will bless your life and the lives of so many others!
So when we got home we did some contacting and then went and saw the C's. They really are a awesome couple! They are so nice and welcoming to missionaries. Even thought they aren't active in the church they will do whatever they can to help us out! :)
Wednesday we got to do our service at the thrift store. Then we saw our investigator J. We taught her how the Book of Mormon and Bible go hand in hand with each other, how they support each other. We also talked to her about her prayers. :) We then went to Navarre Park and did some contacting. Then we had a nice lesson with A. she also made us dinner! :) Then we shared some scriptures with her and her non member husband. We were able to leave them with some readings. He was asking us some great questions! :) We are super excited to continue seeing them. They are such a cute couple! We talked to him about the Book of Mormon and the Bible as well. :) It was nice! :)
Thursday we planned for our week and had a lesson with the R. Then we had dinner with the R's. Their son is coming home from his mission in Brazil this Wed. So the dad made some Cajun dish that was pretty good. It was something that he learned to make in Louisiana. It was kind of spicy, but really good. We then had our correlation meeting. :)
Friday we had to spend a lot of time updating our area book because it was really bad and really missing a lot of papers that we didn't even know needed to be in there. Then we saw a less active member that we have been trying to see since Christmas. She hasn't been home or has been sleeping. It was cool to see her. She is just having a lot of family stuff going on. Then we went and had a visit/lesson with V. and A. We read with them 3 Nephi 11. about when Christ came to the Americas. I think they enjoyed it. We then went to our movie night. Only 2 people came, but it was fun still. We watched some good movies on the Holy Ghost. Sister S. bore her Testimony in sign language, which was really neat because it brought the spirit so fast.. it was really neat! :)
Saturday we did some contacting, not really too much.... We worked at the thrift store and had a nice dinner and lesson with Sister C. and her daughter N. as well. They cooked us a nice southern meal of fried chicken, creamed corn. biscuits, homemade mashed taters and mac and cheese, it was really yummy! We then went to volleyball, but no one came because it was Mormon Prom.
Sunday! V. and A. came to church! It was so neat! V. was crying the whole time during fast and testimony meeting. She leaned over to us and said " I don't know why every time I come here I have to cry". We were able to tell her why and let her know it was the spirit. She really enjoyed church again. A's dad is in town. ( he is a fully active member from Utah.) He kind of acted like we hadn't met his son and V. before. It was kind of funny actually, but we set up a dinner with them for tonight. We are teaching the Plan of Salvation. I am super excited about it. :) So after church we went to the island and tried to see some less actives out there and to talk to some people... No one was out because it has been really wet these last few days.. Then we went to see another less active family but they were sick... :( Then we had a really fun dinner with our Relief Society President. That was really fun! She cooked us a ton of German food, which was awesome! :) We had a really great time with her :)
Today has been super rainy, but we have been hanging our with the Gulf Breeze Sisters a lot. We went and exercised with Sister L. then she made us really good smoothies. The sisters have been at our apt. all day because they are getting a wall fixed in theirs, it had mold on it and creepy bugs in the windows, but we love having them over. I am sorry this letter isn't too exciting. I love y'all!!
Hope y'all have a wonderful week! Don't forget to;
Love, Sister Hannah Seegrist
