Week 30 - Swimming in Miracles


This week was sooo busy but so awesome. yet again. On Tuesday night we drove three hours to the Coromandel peninsula (look up pics), basically one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen. And probably ever will see. But we double covered with the sisters up there and they cover the entire peninsula, it's crazy. Their area is enormous and they drive so far to get to people's homes. The actually have two different apartments that they go back and forth to. Anyway, to get there you drive on this super windy and narrow road with a cliff face to your right and a drop off into the sea on your left with no side rails or anything. So my comp was ooing and ahhing the whole time while I was trying to stay on the road and not die. Pretty fun.

They even had mirrors for super sharp turns so you could see if anyone was coming the other way. But we survived obviously, and it was the prettiest drive ever.  So basically when you see stuff like that, you cannot deny Heavenly Father's love for us. And no we didn't actually swim, sadly. Never been so tempted in my life.

Other news, we had sooo many people at church yesterday. It was actually stressful trying to make sure everyone was being looked after and getting to the right classes. A good problem to have of course. We got there earlier and investigator after investigator just kept coming into the chapel and I just sat there sooo full of gratitude to be a part of this work. Seeing people actually act and find joy in the things we invite them to do! Great sabbath. And especially this one Chinese family, the ones who called us angels from america haha. they came and loved it and want to join! So next lesson we'll invite them to be baptized!!!

The only downside of the week I can think of is that my companion loathes role plays... but I love them slash think they help sooo much. So making her do them was partly a struggle and partly hilarious this week.
Anyway, keeping enduring...

Kia Kaha,
Sister Machen
