Tomatos are Red, lettuce is Green, Welcome to Subway We're Fresh and Clean.
Well a miracle happened yesterday. We were going to try someone then we remembered that a member had not showed up at church and we felt like we should go make sure she was doing okay. While we were there we decided to try another member that was not at church that day first. They live in the same apartment complex. As we were walking around the back we ran into Able. We got to talk to him a little and that was good. He said that he had been reading the Book of Mormon and that it has been "heavy" (when he says that he means it has been calling him to repentance) and he needs to meet with the missionaries. He also is moving to California soon so we will have to hook him up with the missionaries there.
We were finally able to meet with Shay again this week. It went great. She has been talking with Donny a lot about commitments and covenants. She wants to be baptized but is not really sure she can do it. It was great because our lesson that day was all about covenants and commitments. She already started keeping one of her commitments. She texted us to let us know that she read the chapter in the book of Mormon we wanted her to so that is great.
Joe has officially gone to Lakewood. He made it to church though before he left and that was the greatest. We were so happy especially since one of the first things he said to the sisters was that they could teach him but he would never be attending a church meeting so don't bother with that. He looked so happy. We also were able to have one last lesson with him before he left. We talked about the atonement and how we can be forgiven of anything if we look to the Savior.
We went to Young Womens yesterday and it was great. We talked about having a grateful attitude and how miracles and things to be grateful for happen every single day and we need to find them. It was great.
Brother Seelbinder wrote me a song on his a guitar and it was pretty great. I told him I need to get a video of it.
This week we went with the Barretts to Subway for dinner. Brother Barrett is the band professor at the college. Both of the people working decided to write him a song on the spot and that was also pretty good. (It's my email subject line)
Oh also, my companion's name is Sister Carlson. She is from Dallas Texas. She worked as a life guard. Yay for pool staff. She is great and super fun to be around. She is super "excited" to spend winter in Gunnison. Another miracle was that she did not bring winter stuff and we were able to get permission to buy some in Montrose after district meeting on Thursday. We were like okay we are going to stay focused and only get what we need then leave. We were able to go to Target and as soon as we walk in there were the hats and gloves. Then we walked around the corner and there were the boots; we didn't even have to look for things it was great. I think it might have been the fastest Target trip ever.
