Hello friends and family!!

We taught Lisa again this week which went pretty well!! But she didn't come to church which was pretty sad but she'll get there. :) we didn't see Michael at all because he has been at the hospital for some tests for his heart so he didn't come to church either because of it. We met a guy named Paul who we talked to for quite a bit and he was really interested in becoming a missionary and telling people about God all around the world but he wasn't interested in learning more about our church so that was anticlimactic.

We had Zone Conference this week again which was a lot of fun! I got to see Sister Lundahl again which was fun! And also my MTC companion Sister Farnsworth! We learned a lot about how we need to use the Atonement more so we can really teach people about it authentically. I really enjoyed it and appreciated all the instruction we received! We met some cool less actives this week as well and we are excited to start working with them! Yesterday was Mother's Day here so the primary children sang a song and it was adorable. Then a cute little girl bore her testimony and said she missed her mom who is in Spain (I think?) and she started crying and I started crying as well because I'm the same little girl.

Then today we played Laser Tag as a zone and it was AWESOME. So that was my week. I'm stoked for General Conference this weekend!!! It's going to be great to hear from our wonderful leaders.

Love you all so much!! xx

This week flew by!!!!! But we saw some pretty cool miracles!! On Wednesday, Sister Pinther and I decided we were going to find someone new to teach. LITERALLY the last person we talked to before going into our flat was that someone. We set up an appointment with her the next day. So Thursday comes ANNNNNNNND she cancelled on us....So that was great. BUT THEN we decided to try by Lisa who we have not been able to come into contact with for like a month. We were talking to people on the way to her house and we were getting into the longest conversations with people which is pretty rare in Grimsby so the fact that it was almost every person we stopped was crazy. We finally got to Lisa's and we knocked a few times with no luck BUT JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT ALL HOPE WAS LOST!!!!!!!!!!! We turn and GUESS WHO IS WALKING UP THE STREET?!?!?!? LISA!!!!!!!!! So we talked to her for a bit and she invited us in for a cup of juice and she told us she had something pretty big happen to her and that that was the reason she lost contact with us but she is still interested!!! So we set up another appointment with her for Tuesday!! It was amazing because literally everything that happened that day leading up to that moment was timed so perfectly so that we could get back in contact with her!! Man it was awesome.

Then yesterday Michael came to church again! And Sister Pinther gave a great talk on service that got the ward misty eyed a bit. I was very proud of her she did awesome!! It has been such a great week and this week is going to be even better!! I hope you all have a great week! xx

Love you and miss you ALL!

Ah man this week was long. It was really good though!! Just a lot of things happened. 

Tuesday...I GOT PROPOSED TO. There was this guy we stopped to talk to who was named John and he was about 60. He randomly asked if we had children and we told him no so he told us about his kids. We told him we eventually will have kids once we go back to America and find a husband and so he starts telling us that he is single and that he's a great guy so he turns to me and goes "will you marry me?? Will you please marry me??" I told him no.

Yesterday Michael came to church again! And he even stayed for more than just the first hour! It was so good! We basically have just seen a lot of less-actives this week and waited in anticipation for yesterday because we had TRANSFER CALLS. No one in our district changed though so it wasn't anything too crazy. At the end of this transfer I will have been in Grimsby for 6 months. AND I will be half way done! CRAZYYY.

I hope you have a great week and I love and miss you all! xx

Man this week was good!! 

We had Zone Conference which was amazing!! It
was focused on finding through the members and since that Zone
Conference we have received 3 referrals from members. THAT HAS NOT
TURVEY FOR BEING INSPIRED. It feels so good to know that we are going
to have actual solid investigators. It's funny because we'll ask
members who they know and they say "no one" so then we make them think
more and we kneel and pray with them right there and then they always
think of someone. Every time. And we are still continuing to find more
people through our own efforts as well. 

Also Michael came to church
yesterday and stayed longer than he usually does. YAY FOR PROGRESSION.
Anyway that's about it for this week. I love you and miss you all!! xx

Have a great week!
