Thank you all for your emails and support and prayers and love and encouragement!!! I am so so grateful for each of you! I hope you liked the chocolate 😉 – best idea ever having a pound plus chocolate bar.. haha talk about a good time!
This week has been awesome!!! Alex is getting baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finding and fellowshipping and working through members is the BEST!!! it is the most effective way to do missionary work. Building trust and friendships is a huge way the Lord prepares His children. I love seeing the healing of the atonement come into people’s lives and help them feel His incredible love! Alex is friends with Bishop stewart’s family. She went up to the temple with them, and is staying in their house right now. She is so amazing!
We are so happy to have all of our military and military families back! The break was kinda hard because so many people left for Christmas, so we are way excited to be back on track! We have been super blessed by the Lord to find multiple less actives and start meeting with them. The work of the Rescue is miraculous. These people who may have forgotten the peace of the atonement in their lives have really missed it. It is incredible to see the light come back, to see people feel the love and belonging that comes! 🙂 I love it. One miracle in particular is with Brittany. She is amazing 🙂 we were visiting a member of our ward, and from across the parking lot she asked “Hey are you Mormons?!” That is always good to hear 🙂 so we ran over and started talking to her 🙂 she has been less active for 4 years, and has a daughter. It is wonderful to see people come back to the fold of God!
I am so glad Crishelle is on a mission too! I wish hers could last longer so she could stay out with me haha or she could just get transferred over here to the west side! haha I love you!! I pray for you!! You are my heros. I am so so grateful for you!
Ok, so double dinners- the death of me. haha I love Pakistani food! We had just come out of dinner when we met with some Pakistani investigators. they had cooked us a full dinner! So of course we had to eat it 🙂 SO good 🙂 we also ran in to a man who was most definitely inebriated. haha we invited him to take our card, and learn more, and he replied ” Hey! You can take a picture of this” pointing to his face, “It is awful good looking” hahaha crazy stuff!
We may get a third companion this Coming week. She would be a Temple Square sister coming out for her in field part of her mission. (trios are not my fav, but it will work out!) We will make it a party!
Sister Stegelmeier – westerly breezes! ( mary poppins) haha
