BREAKING NEWS:::: Sisters DeVries and Virgin have just broke the record for lessons per week for the area of SYRACUSE *sound of air horns,cheering and sirens*
Yup, you heard it right folks! Well at least in the time that I have been in Syracuse, we have broken the record. We taught a little short of 40 official lessons this week!! With many short 5 minute lessons on doorsteps and on the side of the street. We worked so hard this week, our hardest obstacle was time. We were running constantly and never had enough time in the day! It was amazing!! I truly love this work so much and this area. I think I taught more lessons this week then in my first 6 weeks of my mission. It was so amazing and such a huge blessing. I am so grateful for all that God is blessing us within this area. :)
We found 5 new investigators this week! So I will go through the main events of the week and then give you an update on the investigators but first main events and miracles :)
So we met with a less-active lady who has hamsters, she is also blind. The first time we went to see her, I asked her to tell us what he house looked like and she said "I don't know I'm blind..." I was like.."oh.. don't worry we will find it!" Then during the next lesson with her, I went with Sister Lee on an exchange and she asked Sister Lee to hold her hamster. Well, we kept taking turns holding this hamster and I held it but then I dropped the hamster and I was scurrying around the room while we were teaching the Restoration to this lady, trying to grab her hamster. Right when I finally picked it back up and handed it off to Sister Lee she says "Now how is my hamster?" hahaha!!! I am so grateful that she is blind :) haha! She is the sweetest lady though and wants to get back to church so we will help her get there. Exchanges are the BEST! :) haha! Me and Sister Lee had a blast!! :)
