So....everyday I look at the calendar and I freak out a little bit. I cannot believe that I will be coming home so soon. Don't worry, I am definitely not trunky yet but knowing how much time I have left has really pushed me to be more courageous and loving when it comes to missionary work.
The other day, Sis. Reed and I were talking about how rewarding being a missionary in this area has been. We have so many amazing and real relationship with the members, that we have been able to learn from them and help them strengthen their personal testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel. We are just so lucky to be serving here in Mansu!
This week, we met with one of our investigators. We were sitting at Baskin Robbins and we somehow got talking about the definition of our names. Our investigator told us that her name means Chosen by God. Immediately after saying it, she gasped with surprise and said "Oh my gosh, I am chosen by God...I am a prophet." Sis. Reed and I just looked at each other and burst out laughing...she definitely remembers what the definition of a prophet is, but I don't think the application was correct.
Another miracle from this week is that we were able to meet with Jay again! She randomly called us this Friday and asked to meet at a coffee shop near her work. When we arrived, she talked about how she missed meeting with us and wanted to meet again before we left. Sis. Reed and I are super excited because she has a sincere desire to learn about Christ. Not to mention, she has the cutest baby of all time. We have another appointment to meet with her on Saturday :)
Sis. Reed and I are working harder than ever to get our investigators progressing towards conversion. The two investigators we met last week and invited to church were not able to come yesterday, but they promised us they would come this coming Sunday. We will pick them up if we have to! :)
Also, we promised one of our investigators that we would make them Fajitas. Do you think it would be possible to send me the recipe?
