Hello everyone! So I said that I was going to be emailing my parents a blog post every week, but so far that just has not been happening, so I am sorry about that! It's more like every other week. Things just get so busy and I have so many people to email, but today I am making the time for it.
So just like the title says, there are miracles happening. These past two weeks have been so amazing. I got a new companion and her name is Sister Reed. She is so amazing. I love her, we are basically already best friends. The only downside is that we have a problem with getting sleep because it is very tempting to just stay up and talk. We are better at it though! She is from Herriman, Utah and is 20! We are definitely working miracles in this area. Alex who we have been working with is getting baptized on October 12th. She has made some amazing changes in her life and it is just amazing that she is going to be getting baptized so soon! Not only that but she bore her testimony yesterday in sacrament meeting. It was amazing! I felt the spirit so strongly. She just makes me want to be a better person. She also is so great at missionary work. She brought her mom on Saturday to the broadcast and her mom loved it. She had tears in her eyes afterward because it was so touching to her.
Another miracle that happened was surprisingly while we were tracting! We had prayed that morning so that we would know where to go. So we looked at a map and found a spot and picked a street. When we started out, nobody was home! We kept knocking on the doors, but no one was answering. It was a little discouraging. We wanted to give up, but for some reason we knew that we were supposed to be on that street so we kept going. Finally someone was home. It was an older guy and immediately he came out and just start talking to us. Finally I asked him if we could come back sometime to talk to him some more and he just said that he could pull up some chairs and we could talk right then! He is agnostic and is a very logical thinker so he had some hard questions. Luckily my companion did a very good job at answering them. We could tell that he was really feeling the spirit! We had to leave and so he just told us to come back next Friday and he said that if he wasn't busy he would talk to us some more! It was so awesome that we didn't give up and go back, because if we did then we wouldn't have found him.
Other than those things we are just trying to work hard and find some more investigators. Brookfield is awesome and I am starting to wonder if I will ever be leaving this area! We had a mission tour this past Tuesday which was pretty awesome. Elder Perkins from the Seventy came and talked to us. I was able to receive a lot of personal revelation from that meeting and it really made my week go by so much better! I am loving it out here. It is starting to get colder though and so that is one thing that I am not too excited about :/. It is fall though and so all of the leaves are changing color and falling off of the trees and so it just looks so pretty outside. I am not used to it since Arizona is just all dessert!
I hope that all of you are doing well. I am missing the Arizona people and the weather, but oh well! This week is going to be great and I hope all of you enjoy conference, it's going to be amazing, I love the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson! :)
