Hey everyone! this week was pretty good. it consisted of my companion almost getting hit by a car. see an alligator, my 20th B-day, the fourth of July and exchanges. Monday we had a nice p-day.
We had dinner with a super cute family. We taught the "Plan of Salvation" to them by drawing it with chalk on the side walk. It was good and they liked it.
Tuesday I taught in district meeting about referrals. That was pretty fun! We have a good district. We then did some biking my companion and I were going to deliver a bible so we biked across town and the address was wrong. So we got the correct address and biked over there. It was in the next town over (it was still our area) so we had to bike by the paper mill and the Arizona Chemical...PEW... that smelled bad. We were biking on a pretty scary road actually and we get up by the fire station and this person slams on their brakes so the person behind them was also not paying attention so he slammed on his brakes and them swerved and nearly took out my companion. It honestly probably would have hit me as well. It was pretty scary. We are now going to try our best to avoid that road (we were in a bike lane to).
We then got caught in a massive crazy awesome storm! We came home soaked!
We had dinner with some members he is moving to Utah for work..
Wed. we did more biking and saw some less active members. We had a great dinner with some awesome members. We had a really great lesson with them. They are super intelligent people who actually enjoy having a church related conversation with you. We then went to scripture study and no body came so we went to that same members house for ice cream.... ( we didn't have time before to eat it..) lol.
Thursday 19 died, we saw some less actives and some investigators. Then we did exchanges. Sister Nichols came to Callaway... lol she is serving in Callaway too.. these were the weirdest exchanges ever.. we planned and then went to bed. The next day we saw some more LA members and got a new investigator! She seems awesome. We then went out to St. Andrews State Park for correlation and lunch, it was cool. We saw a real live alligator. I will show y'all pictures! So the exchange was weird because we spend almost the whole exchange with the other sisters. Who happened to be our companions.. it was pretty funny though. then we had some dinner at the returning members home! They are so awesome! I love them already!
We then went to volleyball and no one came... (we were a little late) Oops.. but we went and saw another LA and they were super nice! It was pretty awesome!
Saturday we had a few bb1s and went contacting and saw some awesome peeps. t'was good!
Sunday we actually saw some pretty nice active members. We visited with the bishops family they are super awesome! We then had kind of a awesome miracle. So we were walking around our apt. complex trying to stay out until 9 because all our other appointment fell through. We need to talk to 2 more people just reach our goal for that day. So we prayed to Heavenly Father to place two people in our paths so we could talk with them. So we were walking and we see this guy run past us and jump into his car drives over and picks up his mom before we could talk to him they left.... we were like sorry we failed you Heavenly Father. Then we just kept walking.. we had the faith that we would be able to talk to someone.. So we then see this couple with this baby.. we were so happy so we talked to them. They were super friendly but we weren't able to set up an appointment, but hopefully they will call us sometime. Haha... it was cool that even if they aren't ready for the Gospel now in their lives Heavenly Father still gave us the opportunity to talk to them and we were able to reach our goal. It was really neat! Well everyone, I love you! Hope you have a wonderful week!
Love, Sister Hannah Seegrist
