It's been a good week!
We did a couple of exchanges with some of the sisters in Lovell and Burlington, so that was fun! And the drive there was Soo pretty! No dog bites while tracting this week! So that's good, but I just have to act like I'm not terrified of dogs while I'm on exchanges with the sisters. haha We ate dinner with the cutest family last night and they have 3 little boys and they are all so funny! The oldest is 7 and in 2nd grade and I guess at dinner the other night he said to his parents, "to love yourself makes zero sense, but to love a woman… that makes a thousand sense!" Hahahaha so funny.
Soooooooo D. Yeah remember how I said we were going to teach him about the word of wisdom last time? Yeah well we did that...and...he freaked out. I don't know how to put it, but he does NOT like being told what to do. We brought a member with us and he was awesome! But it got to a point where D actually stood up and walked out of the room! Then his wife got him to come back, but he came back drinking a cup of coffee. Hahaha he's a funny guy. It was really sad to watch the wife though. She has been so excited for him to be baptized. We also met with him yesterday and it was a little better. We are meeting with him again tonight, so it should be good! :)
Our teaching pool is still really small here, so we are trying to build it up and get working with members more and tract more. Which I love! I love love love the members here and tracting is so fun! Most everyone is so nice at all of the doorsteps! They just don't want to know more about the gospel though. So that breaks my heart a bit, but we will find someone! We've got a couple of referrals that we are going to go to and they sound pretty awesome! :)
Oh here's a cool miracle for you! The other day we were about to start tracting on a street, and before we started we said a prayer. After the prayer we weren't really feeling like we should be on that street anymore. The letters P and E came to Sister Peterson’s mind. So we looked up a street with those letters and there was Parker street! So we went there and it felt right. So we tracked it out and nobody really wanted to talk with us. Then we got to the last house (it's always the last house) and a lady came out and she was so sweet! We got talking with her and showed her the “He Lives” video and the Spirit was SO strong. The lady's eyes started filling up with tears as she too felt the Spirit. It was amazing to watch as she felt so much love, comfort, and peace from the Spirit.
We went over to the Riecharts yesterday to talk about our scripture that we have been ponderizing last week and we all talked about the different things/insights that we got out of it. Its cool to see how people get so many different things out of just one verse! This week we are going to be ponderizing 2 Nephi 2:11. It's a long one, but it's a good one! I haven't really started looking at it much yet, but I'm excited to get into it. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY! It's been a good week here in Wyoming! Thank you for all of your prayers :) I love you all!
