Kentucky has been full of adventure, as always. Last night we had
dinner at the Christensen’s and got to pet their chipmunk, Chippy, and
their horse 😀 We had a fun time, they’re all super loco. We also had
our new investigator, Randell, at church yesterday with his 2 year
old. We had been waiting in the parking lot for him and just when we
decided he probably wasn’t coming, he pulled up! Yay yay yay! His son
didn’t like music and it was the primary program and the kids were
singing every 2 minutes so they were in the foyer for the most part,
but they stayed! And then he came to Gospel Principles with us and
really liked it! We’re seeing him again on Thursday. He’s so cool.
Sister Barker and I almost didn’t talk to him but the Holy Ghost said
we must, so we did. He had a friend of his pass away recently and he
said that brought him to start going to church a few weeks ago and
that it was just so serendipitous that we were talking to him! He has
absolutely zero background with religion and he’s just so awesome and
full of faith! We taught him the Restoration this last week and on
Thursday we’re teaching him the Plan of Salvation 🙂 He will most
definitely be baptised.
What else this week… We’ve been going through the roster looking for
those in our area that haven’t been seen at church for awhile and
seeing what we can do to help bring them back. That’s been good, I
love helping “lost sheep” so to speak, that’s probably where I’ve
found my greatest joy on my mission.
This week President Brough showed up at our district meeting, yikes. I
thought he was going to rebuke us for something but he just wanted to
take us out to Mexican food. That works.
It’s been beautiful outside with the leaves changing colour and it
getting colder 🙂 Something really cool yesterday, my mom sent me a
hug via someone moving from out west to Lexington. It was so sweet of
her to drive to Versailles to come uplift me. And it was crazy because
that afternoon she had the Pioneer Sisters over for lunch, that’s my
buddies Sister Hinton and Kocherhans! She told them she was looking
for a Sister Spiteri and they know meeeeee, it’s crazy how it all
works out 🙂
One of my favourite things from this week was watching the Piano Guys
Face2Face online. Listening to them testify of the simply truths that
bring happiness to their families and themselves was so Spirit filled!
I just loved it! If you missed it, watch it here:
Well, have a Happy Halloween, I’m dressing up as….a missionary! Tell
me all your wonderful stories and send me mucho picture this week!
