Week 62: Another Great Week!

Elle and MacKenzie

What a great week we had! I am so grateful to be a missionary, no matter how hard it might be! This last week was a little slower than normal. Sister Belliston got the flu and so we had to make sure we took care of her while doing the work; it was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be but we did it!

The beginning of this week we met with our investigator Justin. Justin doesn't have any religious back ground or really any religious knowledge for that matter. So we were making sure to start with the basics. Teaching him about who Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are and the role they play in our lives. He has so many good questions. Things he has thought about for a long time. The amazing thing is there are answers to pretty much all of his questions! The Church is TRUE!!! I am so honored I have the chance to teach him. This last time we went over there we discussed the Book of Mormon. We read a little from it and answered questions and all of the normal things. It was really funny in the middle of the lesson he said he thinks it is cool this church is based here in America, he think that is pretty amazing! Hahaha,  but we shared Moroni 10:3-5 at the end of the lesson and we sat in silence for a second and asked him how he felt and he said that he felt warm inside. YES!!! He is feeling the spirit! We jumped on the opportunity to tell him that is what the spirit feels like. He was so excited that in the closing prayer he prayed and asked Heavenly Father if He would help him feel the spirit more so that he can know that He is there. I am so grateful that the spirit really does answer our questions and helps us feel the love our Heavenly Father has for us.

On Thursday we got to go and chop and stack wood again!! I am finding that it has become my favorite pass time. It is so much fun and really a lot of work, but that is what makes it so enjoyable. That same day Sister Belliston was the worst she had been and so I stayed in the apartment with her and Sister Perry went out with the Senior Missionaries and went to all of our appointments. She did so good, I was so proud of her! She is so quiet and shy and she did such a good job! They were able to make it to all of our appointments! I am so thankful for three packs!

We also got to learn how to can chicken. We had told Sister Phelps that we had never canned chicken before or even heard of it and she laughed and said, "Aren't all of you from Utah?!" So the other night she had bought a ton of chicken and had us come over so that she could teach us how easy it was and it was easy. I still think it looks like a science experiment but it got the job done and now they have chicken on hand for when they need it. 

I am so grateful to be a missionary! I was thinking back to the beginning of my mission and I have changed so much. I know who I am and I know what I stand for and there is not one person that can take that away from me! I love you all so much and I hope that you have an amazing week! I love you!!
