but! as we were waiting for the shelter to open, we went to a park to study, and whilst there, i started thinking. how bizarre it is that this silly dog is so willing and wanting to be saved, and literally all I'm doing while I'm here is trying to save people, and how unwilling and unwanting to hear it! made me a little sad to think about...
as for the S. family, they are doing amazing! we brought a our ward mission leader and his wife to our lesson, and instant connection. like, to the point i was a little taken aback. hahaha it was awesome! they are such an incredible family! the little kids, as we were leaving, all gave us the bro hug. haha it was hilarious! they come up to like my belt line, but gave me a bro hug! haha it was great:) I seriously love that family so much!
i went on exchanges with Elder B. this week, which was super neat! I've missed him! L., the one who got his call last week, joined us! It was raining pretty hard all day that day, and so when we dropped L. off, we drove through a ton. A TON of water, because it was dark and we couldn't see! as in the water was covering our head lights it was so deep. so we just keep on going, and make it out! but the check engine light was on, and the car was smoking like a chimney. so we pulled over. hahahaha what an adventure!
Gave a talk about prayer in Sacrament Meeting. I've actually been thinking a lot about prayer the past few weeks, and then President Tuck asked me to give a talk, and then told me the topic was prayer, it was perfect! something I've really been thinking a lot about is how God answers prayers. I think it is so important to not only accept God's plan for us in our lives, if we ask for this, he gives us that instead, we need to remember that he knows better, and if for some reason he thinks giving us that will make us happier, we gotta trust that, but also to make sure when God answers our prayers. we recognize it.
What if we don't see miracles very much anymore is because all miracles have been given a different name? like medicine? or luck? chance?
anyway. that's all for today! love y'all!
