Happy Thanksgiving!

We got another email from Nicole this week! We sure do miss her 
around the holidays, though Skyping on Christmas is 
always nice and something we look forward to. 
But we know she's exactly where she needs to be right now.
Read all about her week below:

"Howdy everyone! 

    This week we did a lot of street contacting and a lot of tracting (knocking on doors). We no longer have any investigators, so we spend all our time trying to find people. We decided we have to give the Lord some time to work on Jesse. We love his family dearly and we know that less visits from us will help him to see the difference and will allow the Lord to touch his heart some more. 

     Monday we went to a Chinese restaurant with Elder Jones. He's the only one who got transferred from our district, so we went out one last time all together :) 

     Tuesday night we had a really bad was crazy!!! There will be lots of crazy pictures in a separate email. We weren't allowed to be outside, so we went back to our apartment. Shortly after we got home, the lights went out! Because our apartment complex is already a little sketchy, neither of us sisters wanted to stay there so we all went to the institute building on campus. There was light there so we just hung out with the elders until the end of the night. It was so bad, there were a few giant trees that fell!! Fortunately, we were all safe (: God is looking out for us! 

     Wednesday, we saw a less active lady. We see her about every other week. She's going through a really nasty divorce and so we got to talk to her about hope. It was such a powerful lesson!! I'm so thankful for the hope the Atonement of Jesus Christ brings!! (Moroni 7:41). 

    Thursday it snowed (: 

    Friday we had a zone conference all day which was awesome! I love learning from mission leaders! I learned a lot about the Plan of Salvation found in the Bible. I love the Plan of Salvation. It's a Plan of Happiness that gives everyone the chance to return Home to God and to live in His presence with our families for eternity! How merciful God is to grant us such an opportunity! I LOVE His perfect plan!! 

    Saturday we found a new investigator! His name is Marquise. We think he belongs to the Young Single Adult (YSA) congregation, but we'll find out when we see him on Tuesday. We've been finding a lot more potentials. Most of them fall through, but the fact that we're finding some is a step in the right direction! Soon we'll be finding people potentially interested that won't fall through! I can't wait for that day!! We're so determined to work hard to find them!

     Yesterday we went to church and heard talks from our members on the Atonement/sacrifice of Jesus Christ! I'm so grateful for His sacrifice. I know He was the only one who could have performed it. He willingly did it for us! How blessed we are to have such a loving Savior and a Father who loves us enough to send His Son. I am so grateful!!!!!!! I hope you all can find gratitude for the Atonement of Jesus Christ this holiday season! I love you all! Have a great week and a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
