One month down
So apparently it's in the single digits in Meridian, but it's still 30's here! Lots of rain though.
I have been on my mission for a month already. It feels like forever but at the same time went by very fast. I feel like the rest of the months will fly by.
Last p-day we got to go bowling as a zone so that was really fun. Other than that, it's been a week full of knocking on doors, trudging through leaves, and planning for appointments. It's hard to contact because it gets dark at 4 now and people don't like answering their doors when it's pitch black outside. Apparently everyone here goes to bed at 8.
We had an appointment this week where we were planning to teach our investigator and her boyfriend about the Law of Chastity. We were so nervous and spent a very long time preparing. When we went over to teach it, she started asking us about the Word of Wisdom. So, we had a spontaneous lesson on that instead. It went over really well but was a weird switch. Her boyfriend made us soup and called us his daughters. I love meeting with nice people:)
We got a text Tuesday morning from a recent convert saying that she was told by the Spirit that we had a message for her. We didn't have one in mind, but we went over that night to visit her. My companion opened to a chapter in the Book of Mormon and we started reading and discussing it. It was just going so so, but while we were discussing, the recent convert looked down at the scriptures, read a verse that was completely unrelated from what we were talking about, and said that was exactly what she needed to hear. The Lord had a message for her, not us. We just had to turn to the right chapter for her to find it. I've seen so many little miracle like this that I can't even remember all of them. It's amazing how little we do and how much the Lord actually does.
Hopefully it stays warm here as long as possible!
