...I finally feel like a missionary again!!!!! WOOT. Although I've still got
another 3 weeks until I'm completely up to par, I feel SO much better. :) We
got a voicemail earlier this week from the medical coordinator that made me
laugh. "Hi sisters! Just checking to make sure you're both alive and
breathing an all that good stuff" haha yep. That's about where we were at.
:) I am so thankful for priesthood blessings and prayers. They help so much. I
got a lot of comfort in reading my patriarchal blessing, setting apart
blessing, and thinking back on ones that I have received since being a
missionary. The power and authority from God truly is on the earth again. He is
so much closer than we think he is.
This week was great! It started out with a bit of volleyball
with the Ronan Elders and Polson Sisters. No worries mom, I didn't go all out
;) We got permission to get out and work more this week! Man did that
feel good. The people here are so great :) I just love them so much! I couldn't
stop smiling when we walked around town trying to track down some less actives.
We were missionaries again! FINALLY. :D We had a lesson with Robin, she's
getting baptized on Friday! Since we were sick, we have been teaching her
mostly over the phone so this was the first time we actually got to sit down
with her in person! We sat in the chapel and she started crying the second we
sat down! She explained that she just loved the feeling in the chapel. :) We
reviewed the restoration with her. She had a concern about whether Joseph Smith
was a prophet. I told her that I was going to share what happen in the first
vision in Joseph Smith's own words and that I wanted her to pay attention to
how she FELT when I read it. I began quoting the first vision, and tears began
to well up in my eyes, Sister Wright's eyes, and Robins. That's the first time
I've ever cried telling someone about the restoration. When I finished, we just
sat there for a moment. And then Robin said, "How could you deny that
feeling. It's true. It's true." I smiled so big it hurt. It's true. It's
true. :D Ah. I just love her. We had a lot of material to get through in that
lesson so we zipped through the law of chastity, and then asked what she
understood about tithing. She whipped out a tithing envelope from her bag
"When can I turn this in?" .....WHAT?!?! I was floored. It was so
cool. We reviewed the Word of Wisdom with her and she shared that when Janie
(The member that she's friends with) explained the word of wisdom, she was a
little hesitant. But the next morning when she woke up and started making
coffee...her coffee machine broke! "I took that as a sign that God really
wants me to keep the word of wisdom. So whatever it is, I'll do it now."
SO. COOL. God's hand truly is in missionary work. He was preparing Robin for
this time. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY.
I'm running out of time. But I wanted to share that experience.
It was amazing to look back and see the timing of it all. God loves us SO much
and he wants all of his children to partake of the blessing of his gospel.
Baptism is the first step, and that will start us on the path to the temple and
eternal life. Where are you at on that path? Is what you are doing now helping
you to get there?
I love you all so much. :) Thank you for all the support and
prayers these past few weeks. Have a happy week!
Love, Sister Fletcher :)
