Week 2

Here's the email we got from Nicole
this week! It sounds like she had quite
a productive week. Check it out:

"Happy Monday!! 

    Sister Foo and I survived week 2. It's been quite the week. We did find new investigators in River Ridge, so that was a miracle! Monday we had an appointment with a man named Arel who was taught by missionaries in the past. He became a new investigator! We're not sure where he's going to go, but we're hopeful as he reads from the Book of Mormon and prays about it, that he'll feel the Spirit testifying of its truthfulness! 

     Tuesday, we spent the day in River Ridge. We tried many people who were taught in the past with no luck. At the end of the day, we realized we couldn't find our phone anywhere! After looking in our car and calling it and thinking about where it could be, we came to the conclusion that we must have dropped it in the snow. It couldn't have been in anyone's home, because everyone was gone. We called the senior missionary in charge of the phones and he's ordered a new one for us. We're still waiting for it to come in, haha. 

      Wednesday, we saw Katrina again! Ahhhhh I just love her so much! She's gone 3 weeks without drinking coffee and she's so happy! She loves seeing herself progress and she feels so good as she keeps the commandments. She is already for's just the smoking we're working on! She's getting there, and she's excited about it :) It makes me so happy to see how happy she is making these changes! We  also saw Ashlee, the less active we're working with. She's been trying to come to church the past month, but something keeps coming up Sundaymornings. We told her how if she comes to church, she'll feel her testimony grow stronger and the areas where she may lack a testimony will produce one. It went really well and she said she'll be at church this week!! I just love these people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thursday we did weekly planning. 

      Friday we had a training where we were informed that some changes were going to be made in the mission to make us more obedient. I am so excited to apply these trainings and see the miracles they will produce! That night we had a dinner with Katrina and Seth and their 3 kiddos. It was lovely and we had a mini testimony meeting. Oh. My. Gosh. Hearing their testimonies is one of the greatest things in the world! 

      Saturday we met a part member family in River Ridge. The parents are trying to come back to activity and go to the Temple. They want their kids to go with them, but they're not baptized yet. We had the privilege of teaching them the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They are sweet kids with great potential and we're excited to work with them! 

       Yesterday was great! ASHLEE CAME TO CHURCH!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhh..finally!! She came she came she came! Everyone was so excited to have her there and I pray she'll make it a habit! We'll be having dinner with her this week and a lesson outside of the dinner. I can't wait!!

       Tonight we'll be having another dinner with Katrina at a member's home. We have a really good lesson planned and we're super excited! 

       I love these people more than I'll ever be able to describe. The people I've met the past 14 months have been some of the greatest people I'll ever meet in my life, I'm sure of that. It's a true blessing and joy to be doing the Lord's work. I hope you all feel of His love and will continually work on strengthening your relationship with Him. It will bless your life more than anything else you could ever do. 

      I love you all and hope this week brings lots of joy! 

Sister Wilson"
