So I am getting transferred to Greenwich! It is an Elder's area right now so me and Sister Hayward are being whitewashed in! So President obviously has a lot of faith in my whitewashing abilities. I am so excited though! When I heard the news I just had this feeling that it was exactly where I needed to be! So I am excited!!! Sister Baxter will be staying here and training again so that will be fun! I am definitely going to miss Vestal and the people here but I know that I need to go to Greenwich! And I am soooo pumped to do work!!! switching an Elder's area to a Sisters. I am pumped! I am going to make the area the best its ever been! :)
So this week was amazing!!! :)
It first starts with the miracle of Kirkwood! We headed out there to work, it is the farthest out our area goes and is almost 10 miles from our house so we planned a day out there and we went to have lunch at a park and we met Clarence. He has met Elder's before in Greene they helped his buddy build his house and he just lost his wife. We testified to him of Eternal families and he said he eats lunch at the park every day so we could come back and see him! He is amazing!
Then we went to tract on apartments and we knocked on this door and a guy named Logan opened it. After we asked him if he was religious or not, he immediately opened up and said "I actually just lost my grandma and I am trying to be more religious because of it. So we set up an appointment to see him next week! Like WHAT? People are prepared here! But wait.. there is so much more! :)
We had to get our car's oil changed and so while they were doing that, we went for a walk on the rail trail to try and find more people to teach. We handed out a few cards about the Hill Cummorah Pageant and then we got to this one guy named Ruddy, we stopped and talked to him for a good 15 minutes! We did a quick restoration and he agreed with all that we were saying! He knew we were Mormon's but he was still willing to listen! He accepted the pamphlet and when we walked away he was reading it! Also, we went to subway to use the Bathroom and I decided I wanted a drink and it was free cookie Friday! Dang.. Subway is the best!!!
Then we taught Lentz. He is from Haiti and we tracted into him last week and he told us we could come back! We taught him the restoration and we kept having distractions it wasn't going well at all, and we both really felt like we just needed to get to the Book of Mormon. So we testify of the Book of Mormon and he grabs it and says! "Oh, yes. I Know this!" He then told us that while he was in Haiti he had a friend who was teaching him about the gospel and he was reading this book with him and that he was about to go to church but then he got his papers to come here. LIKE WHAT??? He is so excited to learn more and then to tell his friend in Haiti!! :) We are going to baptize him! :) I know the Lord is aware of his children! He has the 99 but he is still looking for the 1!! AHHHHHH!!! MIRACLES.... but wait there is even more!!!!!!
We went tracting again and we ran into a family from India. We testified of how Jesus Christ can help our families be closer to this lady and she let us right in! She told us we could tell her more! We taught her some of the How to Begin Teaching points and invited her to come to church. She said that she has seen a difference in her life and the lives of those she knows who believe in Jesus Christ and said that she would come to church and bring her kids! (unfortunately, they didn't come! but... they are still a golden potential)

This area is amazing! I am going to miss it! But, I am so glad I was able to see so many miracles. I know that the Lord listens to our prayers. He is aware of each of us! No matter how hard it gets, there are always miracles awaiting you at the end :) I am so glad I was able to see that this week! :)
