Week #56 in Texas/New Mexico - Carlsbad, New Mexico

This week has been really good! We have been seeing a lot of success and miracles lately!

So James, the guy that we met at the doctors office last Monday, came to church for all three hours with his 3 year old son! We taught him on Saturday for the first time, and then he came and stayed the whole time! He is so solid. Then we said goodbye to him at the end of church, and went to find someone else, and 30 minutes later we go in the chapel and James was there just talking with a group of members! It was so awesome! He is already very well fellowshipped! We have a lesson with him tonight, please pray that all goes well!

We are planning a trip to the temple this weekend! We are so excited but I struggling to find someone to drive us! Kind of stressful, but the Lord always provides. We got permission from President Heap to go Friday and do baptisms for the first time with our recent convert Erica, then spend the night and go to an endowment session for a less active who Sister Peck helped to reactivate in Borger. So we are really excited! And Hermana Langston will be there for the endowment so I am so excited!! It’s going to be a really great week. I can’t believe that transfers are on Saturday. It blows my mind how quick it is going! After that, I just have my reverse training, 12 weeks, left. I can’t even believe that! It’s crazy. Bitter sweet feelings for sure.

The apartment manager for the mission gave us permission to start apartment shopping for something in our area because ours isn't quite suited for missionaries! We found a place that we are really excited about and its exactly what we need for under the price that we need it, and it is really nice! The guy said he would hold it for us, which doesn't happen in this town because housing is really hard to come by. Super miracle find! So we may be moving soon!

I’ve really been praying lately that we would stand out and that people would notice and talk to us! Then the experience last p-day happened! And then today, we were at Wal-Mart picking out fabric, and this older lady came up and asked what we were making and started talking with us! She was buying paint so we asked her what she was doing and offered our help, and she accepted! We got her information, and it turns out her husband was baptized and they used to live in Utah, but he’s less active now! We are going to help them with their house and get to talk to them! We are very excited. At the end of our conversation, she said "I really did know exactly who you were and what church you were from, and that's why I really came up and talked with you." it was amazing and a huge testimony builder to me that God answers our prayers in very specific ways!

I’m so grateful for these days stuffed full of miracles and great experiences!
