Hey everyone,I hope that you all have tons and tons of fun up in Grace this week. Yay for the fair, but where on earth has the summer gone? I can't believe its August already!!
We had dinner with the most awesome family this week. I really love them, because they made us feel so comfortable and it was so nice. I have enjoyed every family though, but you know how you just click even more with some people, it was that sort of experience for us. So that was fun.
We had a district meeting on Wed. as well, and it was super awesome. The assistants were there with us too. But we did Role Plays....gotta love them. and the DL and I were together, he is really awesome. The training was just what I needed as well. Isn't it great how Heavenly Father works? We did it on BDAW....Before, during, after warning. Basically we help them rec. the spirit and warn them that distractions are coming up and such. It is super powerful when we do it right. I was really glad that I was able to see how Elder Barnett teaches, because he does it really well, I was learning better ways to intensify, as I was listening to him teach me.
Anyways back to miracle time.
I'm going to skip to last night. We went to try an unknown on the ward directory, and there was no answer, and since we had just finished a finding fast how much better a way to close our evening than by doing a bit of tracting? We tried a few houses and got a lot of silence...aka no answer. One lady had her kids in the bath tub so she said we could come back during the day sometime. We had 25ish minutes left, and we went to this one house and this guy came to the door and asked if he could help us. We gave him our we are new to the area spill and then I asked him if he had a few minutes that we could share a message with him. He told us yes and then he went to get his wife. I was flabergasted!!! Say what? Someone actually wanted to listen to us, and then went and got his wife w/out us asking if anyone else would like to join? It was a miracle!! Heavenly Father really blessed us, by leading us to Donny and Amanda. We taught them an abbreviated version of the Restoration and were able to address some of their/mostly his concerns w/ a previous church, and it was fabulous. We were almost able to get a return appointment, but they both work 60-70 hour weeks so we have to coordinate with them this week about when they can actually do it. But I'll let you know what happens.
I am so grateful for miracles, and I love that Heavenly Father never gives us more than we can handle, but He gives us enough that we are able to realize how much we truly need Him.
This week you should try and ready some in Mormon, because it is really fabulous! I love you all lots!
Love Sister Julie Ann
