Ah, so we are getting so geared up for TT, the bishop has a farm and
he wraps hay bails with black plastic to guard the walls along the
road and things for the race. We were walking down the lane to his
farm, and saw the tractor wrapping them, and sister Wamsley goes, "
hey they're wrapping the hailbaes!... bayhails?? No hay bails!!" Haha
It's been a fabulous week, full of miracles. I feel a lot of hope and
anticipation for all that this week ahead holds. We were able to teach
veno again, and it went well. She keeps her commitments, and invited
her friend to come to the lesson- referrals from referrals!! More
answers to prayers, I can't believe it! Jill is not only friends with
Veno, but also with a ward member, Joan, so we are just really
A miracle from bus contacting happened too! The bus we were getting on
to head back into Douglas was really busy, so I sat down by this man,
and immediately made a comment about "what a busy bus, hey?" And it
started a really good conversation. his name is Peter, and he used to
meet with the sisters, maybe 5 years ago. He said that the only reason
he still considers himself agnostic is because he hasn't had a
spiritual experience as of yet. He accepted a return appointment, and
we saw him the next day. We taught him the restoration, but also
specifically promised him that as he takes the invitations we give
him, and does them with a sincere heart, he will have a spiritual
experience. He can develop a relationship with God, and know that He
exists. It was a very good lesson. Yay yay!! We will see him again on
Wednesday, so there ya go!
One of my favourite moments was today. There is a sweet girl here I
the ward, Erin. She is in hair school, and she asked us if on our pday
we could come get our hair done. They need clients to pass off
assessments. We agreed, and this really cute girl, jess, did my hair.
At first we were having a really casual conversation, about life and
plans, and hair school. Then she began asking about our missionary
work, and was amazed about what a wonderful experience it is. She was
intrigued, and felt the spirit as I talked about my family and desire
to be with them forever. I was able to give her a card as we left, and
pray she will one day want to learn more. She was so cute, and has two
kids, and loves them so much. As we were talking, I just realised, I
love these people so much. I am so blessed to be here. People are so
amazing and so unique. We all have different lives, different
experiences, and the gospel can bless each one of us in different
ways. You truly never know the impact you have on others. I was
grateful for a more causal time to share my testimony.
We got in touch with Sam, and have an appointment to see him this
week, and are looking forward to seeing Luke, another person we
haven't seen In Quite a while. We are really excited about this week.
The final one of the transfer is always a good one. We will blow it
out of the water. The Irish Sea haha
I love each one of you! Thanks for sharing with me about things going
on!! Life is a wonderful thing. We are so blessed to have this time.
Enjoy each moment of it. Write down some things you are so very
Hope you have all have a fab week!!!
