Week 75 - Jan. 8, 2017 - Another One Down


This week was good to get back into the normal swing of things - the holidays are over so people were back at home and more sober to talk to! We had a ton of miracles this week with finding new investigators, we just seem to be building our teaching pool like crazy but we now need to help these new people actually make changes and progress. The hard part. I have felt a great urgency this last week to just do my best and make every moment count and I think I ran my companion into the ground... She was super sick the past two days coughing and blah blah so I had to repent and let her rest. Ugh.

We had a great lesson with a new investigator on the restoration, she has been taught by a couple missionaries previously but something always came up and her mom threw out her Book of Mormon and all this drama. The lesson we had was super spiritual and she told us that she felt the spirit in that lesson more than she ever had before and that she was so happy we had decided to look her up and track her down. (This is the former that we caught right before she was moving to another house and would have been lost forever.) But she was so joyful about the message of the restoration and it was really refreshing for me. I also got to read a bit on church history this week and the enthusiasm of the early missionaries is so inspiring! Like guys, we really do have the greatest message of all time!

Anyway, hope you all are keeping up with your goals and making time each day for the Saviour!
Love you heaps!

Ofa atu,
Sister Machen
