I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I ate a big sandwich for me meal..haha.
This week was full of miracles! We had a split, so I was with Sister Alves and it was crazy!! But awesome! We prayed a lot and saw a lot of miracles. It's pretty amazing that when we pray with real intent about something good and believe that it will happen, it will if God sees it as good too!
Every prayer we said on Monday and Tuesday was answered. We found a new investigator on Monday and had a lesson on Tuesday night with him. We waited for 30 min at the bahn station and prayed that'd he'd be on the next bahn, he was. The lesson went long and so we didn't split back with the other sisters and Sister Alves needed to be back in Hamm for a meeting at 9, so we prayed to be able to get a ride with the elders, 5 min after that prayer we got a call that said we could be taken in the Elder’s car to Hamm. A lot of other little prayers like that through the day helped a lot. When you are in the service of the Lord, God will guide you and help you do everything you can to accomplish what he has set for you.
Another cool experience had to do with the new Christmas video on Mormon.org, everyone go watch it!!! It's cinematic perfection (Christ is in it). We were so excited for it and so
we went Park contacting to show the video and I said a prayer asking Heavenly Father to let us show the video to at least one person. So, I, of course, thought for sure we would share it to someone there. Nope. We had a lesson after that and I was losing hope of showing it. But we went dooring after our lesson and it was darker out and I see this building that was lit up and I told Sister Carpenter that we had to go door it. We did and ended up showing the video 4 times and getting 2 lessons set up for this week! It truly is a wonderful video and everyone we have showed it to say how beautiful it is and how important it is to serve others. It also is a great way to bear testimony of the Savior and how we can follow Him through serving others. No one can really argue that serving others is wrong.
This pic is of the lit up building and us.
I’m seriously so grateful to be out here. Time is going by so fast! No! Truly nothing is better than serving a mission!
On a side note, my district always matches...this picture was due to everyone wearing navy blue
Have a wonderful week and remember that God is just one prayer away:)
