Sheridan Miracles!

This week has been a weird week, but it has been so great! So many miracles! I was still in Billings till Wednesday. Lots of miracles are going on there! On Wednesday I was companions with Sister Pearson again! (My MTC companion) Her companion left to go to the other side of the mission at 6am, so we picked her up and I went with her till four. We did some tracting and met some cool people!  Then I got my new companion! Her name is Sister Bell, she is from Gilbert Arizona and she is awesome! :) I've already learned so much from her and I can tell that this is going to be a great transfer!

Miracles! So when Sister Peterson and I first got to this area a couple months ago (I can't believe it's been that long) we had a guy in our area book that was going to be baptized, but when we went to the place that he lived, they said that he had moved away. The other day though, we were in our other area and we had gotten a referral from someone, so we went to go and contact them and a guy came to the door and he said he didn't live there and that he was from Sheridan. Then he said, "you're missionaries right? I'm a Mormon. I just haven't been baptized yet." Haha best thing I've ever heard! Then he said, "yeah, I was going to be baptized a couple of months ago, but I had some family stuff come up and I missed my baptism!" We asked him if he still wanted to be baptized and he said yes! It was awesome! When he said his name I put two and two together and realized that he was the same guy that we couldn't find when we first got here! Turns out he was just staying at that person’s house because they are friends and he is moving up to Billings, so we're going to get him with the missionaries there. It's amazing that we were led to that house right when he would be there, when he was only there for a couple of days! God is pretty good at what he does! :) I love being a part of this work!

Oh! and then right after this happened Kenny (K) called and said that he is going to talk to his boss and try to get all of his Sunday's off at work! You could say it was a good day and Kenny is back on date! He is doing so good!! This week we taught him about the word of wisdom and I was amazed at how well he took it! He knows that God will help him to overcome his addictions and that it is truly a commandment from God that he should follow. We are so excited for him! Keep him in your prayers! :)

I love Sheridan Wyoming! :) It's the best. I love you all! I hope you have the best week ever!
Love, Sister Anderson
