October 20, 2014 - Miracles do happen!

I went Spanish-speaking for a day. :)

We went on exchanges on Monday/Tuesday, so Sister Stevens stayed in Kuna while I went to Nampa with one of the Spanish-speaking Sisters.  It was kind of fun, minus that whole I-have-no-idea-what-y'all-are-saying part of it. :)  But for a part of my time in Nampa, we went and helped with a English class, which was lots of fun.  It's amazing to see how some of these people have caught on to speaking English.  All in all, Tuesday was kind of fun. :)  it was almost relaxing, not really having to teach because I don't know the language.  But it's also really neat because I could still feel the Spirit while Sister Cole was teaching the people we visited.  I love how universal the Gospel is.  It's a real blessing how the Gospel can reach anyone and everyone.

On Wednesday, Sister Stevens and I prepared the training for District Meeting!  It was sort of weird, and a little scary, but it ended up being a really good experience.  We did the training on making commitments and following up with them, and we both learned a lot from it, so we're trying to follow up better on the commitments we leave for people.

And we had a miracle happen on Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!  So, there's the Cox family, where the husband is not a member, and has been known to display some anti-like behavior towards the church.  Well, the other day, we felt prompted to go to their house and just ask for some water, and not only did Tim (the husband) get us water, but he invited us inside their home!  and we were able to share a message with Sister Cox with him in the room!  We were so excited!

So, on Saturday, we were supposed to meet with the Pfieffers, but Suzanne ended up cancelling because her fibromyalgia flared up, and she said that she would bring Shanna to church, but that she probably wouldn't come.

Well, guess who was a church?  Both Shanna and Suzanne!  We are so happy that they both came, and Shanna made it through church without complaining this week!

Anyways, that's all I can think of right now.  Transfer calls are this week, so pray that I get to stay in Kuna!

Love y'all!
