Hey y'all,
This week was been so nuts!!! So much happened but it was so great! 
We got to see one of our less actives who had their baby. she is adorable! 
We had some CRAZY weather this week. lots and lots of rain. half our area flooded.. 
We had apt checks and we then went of splits with the head STL's. Or the Sister Apt's which was weird. They never do that... But it was really fun! It was only for a few hours and we just all stayed in Bonifay and worked. :) We had an amazing lesson with Terra. We taught her the Restoration and she was so open! She really loved learning about the Priesthood and the miracles that it can do. I know she is so prepared she just needs to see that faith that she has! We still had some crazy crazy weather all week... But on Thursday we biked.. because we had no miles.. haha it was a bit wet but we had fun and we were safe.. all we can say is we were so tired by the time we had to be in(5). So we planned and went to bed a bit early. Some epic new years party... haha.
We had a really cool thing happen this week. 
So on Friday we planned to see a lot of formers and potentials so we were out working and no one was home!  We came home to grab something and then headed back out.. while we were home I said a little prayer that we would at least find someone who needed/wanted to talk to us.. 
So we had this one lady down but we didn't have the right address so we saw this house that we thought well maybe she lives there.. So we knocked on the door and this lady opens the door a little and see us, then opens it more and starts talking to us.. She was like "Do you want to come in" We were like sure.. At this point we didn't know if this was the lady we were looking for or some one else. So we told her our names and what we were out doing. She then told us her name was Christian, (not the lady we were looking for) But she was so nice. She let us teach her and talk. She said we could we come by anytime and that she might come to church! 
That was a super dragged on story. but it was cool
We then had some other cool visits!
 Our investigator Liz almost dropped us.. but she said as she was texting us she felt that she really shouldn't... #thespiritisreallyworkin.
We had another really cool thing happen this week. On Saturday we were trying to see this less active guy who we've tried to see a few times.. and we always get his sister.. So a few weeks ago we gave her a family history card an asked her to check it out... So when we went back she was like " I looked at the site and she had so much luck! she is super excited to find more! So we set up a time to come back and help her with that.. :) 
last but not least.. ARIEL CAME TO CHURCH! Finally! After the opening song. She walked in and we about started to cry! That was great! 
So the biggest news of all..... I am getting transferred! I am headed to Tallahassee! I am excited but sad. I have loved serving in Bonifay. it is such a special place and I have grown a lot here. I know I am needed in Tally and am super excited for this new adventure! :) The lord knows what we need and where we are needed! He really does know us personally! I sure love y
all and hope y'all have a wonderful week! 
Love, Sister Hannah Seegrist
