Aw this week has been great :) We are seeing an insane amount of miracles happening in our area.
First of all, Sam was baptized! The baptism and everything went great! Her husband wasn't able to get the priesthood in time because they went out of town, but Sam did not want to wait! She chose Hark the
Herald Angels Sing and America the Beautiful for the songs to sing at the baptism and it was the best thing ever. Nick is still on board and ready to be baptized this Saturday! Everyone is so excited for him :)
There are so many miracles happening here in Helena. We received a referral this week from someone in Colorado or something and we went to contact her and just ended up teaching the restoration and halfway through she asks, "how can I learn more about the Mormon religion?" Haha such a good question! She's awesome. We also went by the apartment where one of our investigators had moved out of to see if someone new had moved in and it turned out to be members! Their an awesome family from Virginia. When she opened the door she got this really excited look on her face and threw her arms in the air and said, "sisters!" Haha we were so confused. That's not a response we get everyday. The parents were both baptized three years ago and they are so missionary minded. They have only been living there for three days and she is already working on her neighbor upstairs and referred us to her! So we went to contact her and she too is so prepared and excited to learn more!
Victoria is also doing great and looking forward to baptism on the 17th! Sister Linney and I are just loving being here. So many miracles everyday! I wish I could stay here forever! We also had some awesome exchanges this week! On Tuesday I went with Sister Timothy to her area in Helena. That morning I was praying about how many new investigators we would find and at first I felt strongly that we would find 5. I was doubting a bit, but I told the Lord that I did believe we could find 5 with His help. So we worked hard, talked with everyone He put in our path, and before dinner found 3 new investigators! Then before the night was over we felt prompted many times as to where we should be and what streets we should go down and ended up finding 2 more! God’s plans are SO much better than our own. If we have enough faith, we can be guided by Him, and we will see miracles!
I say this all the time, but God is SO aware of each of His children. There are miracles happening everyday, all around us! He has not and will not ever forget us. I was reading through a great talk by elder Scott the other day that said, "You are one of the noblest of God’s creations. His intent is that your life be gloriously beautiful regardless of your circumstances. As you are grateful and obedient, you can become all that God intends you to be."
I love you all! Have the best week ever.Love, Sister Anderson
