Mail Thief

This past week was yet another amazing one (which is good because this week is Spring Break and most everyone is gone) Here are some daily highlights.

Monday we had a great lesson with Erin and she committed to fast for guidance on Sunday. Unfortunately she didn't come to church and had to work late last night, so we don't know how that went. She has an amazing spirit and knows the Book of Mormon is true, but something seems to be holding her back.

Tuesday we had another amazing district meeting. We had a lesson later that day with Kristen Hill & Rachel again. I love getting to help people see that the Book of Mormon and the Bible go hand in hand!

Wednesday we spent time down by FAMU. Everyone their is so friendly! We had some great opportunities to testify to people as we were tracting. I really feel like my tracting ability has improved- I may not be getting more investigators, but I testify with the Spirit for those brief moments & hopefully plant a seed.

Thursday Sister Wilcox & I held the booth on TCC & we talked to multiple people. We were able to teach a formal lesson with Stephanie and met several of her friends.We had a lesson with Cameron & Joe again as well as some friends of theirs that were in town. They love learning more, but still don't have a desire to make any changes. We also watched video surveillance of our mail thief! Sister Wilcox had a gift/credit card sent to her for Christmas & they tracked the purchase and we got to watch a video of the guy! They also took the letter from Grandma & Grandpa Erekson that we found on the side of the house to dust for fingerprints. It was pretty cool, plus we got to tell them a bit about the church. We'll be sure to keep you updated on the case of the missionary mail thief. :)

Friday we went back to Cameron & Joe's to help them clean up their apartment for the puppy they are getting after Spring Break. We then went to the Ronald McDonald House and cleaned there. I love cleaning, but even more than that, I love wearing pants! Later in the evening we met with a woman named Kelly in the 2nd ward who requested the Sister Missionaries. She is less-active but her 8 year old son goes with her dad and she wants to become active again and put her life in order. I love getting to help people that want to help themselves! It is amazing to watch the Lord work in their lives to help them return to Him.

Saturday we went to the Family History Fair they had at the Stake Center- it was a pretty good turn out with a lot of non-members. We then had a lesson with a girl named Meaghan. Meaghan was adopted by a less-active member and was visited a few weeks ago by diligent home teachers. She has expressed an interest in learning more and seemed to really feel the spirit in the lesson. She didn't come to church, but we're pretty sure that she was scared because she doesn't like to meet new people. We meet with her again next week & we are going to offer to come get her so she doesn't have to go in alone. Hopefully that will help. We had another great lesson with Kiley & Cory. We taught the Word of Wisdom & not only did Cory commit to live it, but seemed to really understand it as more than just a list of do's and don'ts.

Sunday was a wonderful Fast Sunday. Testimony meeting was powerful and I love the opportunity to have a meaningful fast. Sunday night we finally had time to plan for this week. Last week was so busy and this week, well, isn't. We'll see what happens.

I love you all!
