Week 12 - Miracles

Hello all!!

This week went by in a blink! So fast. We had so many things happen this week. I'll just expand on the best day ever as of yet. Sunday was FABULOUS. Holy cow. So many blessings yesterday. Our ward was so full compared to what it usually is. We had a less active part member family, the Taylor fam; a less active woman and her unbaptized daughter, Sister King and Ashley; a less active man, Brother P; the Elders had two investigators come, and Sister B (another less active) all came to church!! What miracles! It was so fun to see the ward befriend them all and reach out. Sis. Straight and I were in heaven. 

We also received the records of a new family in our ward! Yay for new families!! There is Betty V and her step-son, Tony. She also lives with her son and her daughter (who has 3 darling girls) who are all non-members. They welcomed us right in and we got to know them a little bit and set up an appointment to come back and have a lesson with them. They love the BoM, so we read a chapter with them before we left. This family is a miracle family and I know that the Lord has big plans for them!! 

After the V family, we went to see a less active man, John. We got to share a message with him and his non member girlfriend, Laurie. As we were leaving we talked to their neighbor across the street, Dan. Super cool guy. A solid potential investigator for sure. But here's the miracle part of that encounter...he told us how his wife's sister is LDS. We were like, "who"? He told us her name was Amber. Turns out she is a less active woman who is in our ward! We haven't been able to get a hold of her because she moved and we don't have her address, but he gave it to us and we are super stoked to meet her! Such a big blessing.

We have a busy week ahead! We are trying really hard to work with part-member/less active families and we have seen much success from those efforts.  I feel like I'm finally starting to see the fruits of my labors as we work more with these families. And it's so exciting to see people who have been struggling find their way back onto the path! The Lord has so much in store for Oshkosh and I know that we're about to see it blossom!!

Hope y'all have a great week. Much love.

Elder Robinson's (an elder in the zone) dad is tight and sent him a whole bunch of kettle corn from Water Gardens theater. I enjoyed having that little piece of home! Yum.

Unplanned service rocks my world. I was just pretty pleased to have this (although not much) to show for it! Lol.

Jumping pics at exchange point! Fun times in Wausau with Sis. King. It was weird not being in my area, but it was a really great experience.
