Happy 5 Months to me!!

Ok anyways, this week was kind of a long and slow week but a lot of pretty neat things happened too :) First we had transfers so we got some new missionaries in the zone :) Plus Hermana Woodbury is training so we got a brand new roommate! Her name is Hermana Scott and she is super awesome! She is from Connecticut and loves musicals and singing hooray!!
So this week we were able to meet with Spencer and we had a really awesome lesson with him about going to church and keeping the sabbath day holy, praying often, and reading your scriptures :) CPR! Things we all need to be doing to stay alive spiritually. The spirit was really strong and he felt it! He told us that he still wanted to get baptized and that he was going to work hard so that he could. We talked to him about a date and he feels like he will be ready by June 4. It wasn't exactly what we were hoping for but hey it's better than nothing and Sister Cundick and I are hoping that we will continue to work more with him and help him see that he could be ready sooner :) But we are pretty excited about his progress and desire.
We had an experience this week that showed me how much our Heavenly Father is aware of us and loves us. So we do this thing called hour of power where for a straight hour we do some sort of finding activity that is different than what you have been doing all day. So Sister Cundick and I decided that we were going to pray for inspiration and knock an entire street and just see what happens. So we both individually prayed for guidance and then we looked at the map and the street Woodhollow stuck out to us and we both felt like that was the street we needed to knock.
So the next day we got on our bikes and we knocked every door on the street and at first we were having no success and it was hot so we were kind of bummed but then we knocked on this door and a little girl answered and her dad and brother came to the door and let us right in and we shared a really awesome message with them. It was a miracle!! We didn't get a return appointment because they said they were busy a lot but we have high hopes for the family! The best part about all of it was for weeks all I have been saying is that I want to find a family and boom! The Lord always provides! I can testify that he knows each of us individually and he cares about us so much. He wants nothing more than for us to be happy and find success. He also wants us to share that happiness and success with our fellow brothers and sisters who don't have it in their lives. I am so grateful to be a missionary! Even though it's hard and sometimes the work can be slow I know that I am here for a reason and that the Lord has people prepared for everyone of his missionaries. We get the amazing opportunity as missionaries to take a front row seat and watch the atonement at work. I love it and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else!
Have an awesome week and be safe and be smart! Follow the promptings that the Holy Ghost whispers to you and always strive to be a better disciple of Christ :) love you all!!
