3/23/15 Week 54


So this week was pretty dang aweeesome! Umm let's see...oh! I got a new companion! Se llama Hermana Ford (everyone calls her Hermana Cuatro...haha!)  She is super cute, she's from Seattle, and is an equestrian.  Oh, if only we had been together back in my pony pals days...anyways, I love her so much already! This week we WORKED it was awesome!

Now it is time for a few brief spiritual experiences from the life of Hermana Bonny: enjoy -

#1  We went out with Hermana Hatfield driving around in her cute pink barbie jeep to visit this less active family, la familia Perez.  We'd tried to visit them a few other times, but they NEVER answered the door.  So it wasn't really a shock when again nobody answered us, but then we had this strange idea to try and knock their neighbor's trailer just for fun:)  So we did, and this Latino family answers the door (score!) and I just felt like I should ask..."are you the Perez family?"  And they were like "Yes! How have you been misioneras! Come in!" haha! It turns out they had moved one trailer over about 2 years ago, but they haven't been to church in forever so no one knew.  But what is even cooler...they turned out to be basically bffs with Hermana Hatfield! She got them talking about all the good times they used to have with her at church, and at the activities, and now they say that they want us to come back and teach them! It's hard to describe how much of a miracle that is without giving all the background, but basically God guides us to the people he wants us to see:) 
#2  In our ward we've been cleaning out the ward list, and calling people and figuring out who lives where and who is who so that way they can get all the home teaching and stuff figured out...ya, its quite the process.   We were calling a few #'s waiting for our exchange to come pick us up and we got a hold of a lady named Isabel, and when we told her we were the missionaries she started crying!  She said she is sooo glad that we called because she wants to come to church badly, but the woman she now lives with is a non-member who won't ever give her a ride to church.  So she gave us her correct address, and now we can help her get back to church where she can get back on track for eternal salvation! All from 1 phone call! How about that?? 

I knew it - the Easter Bunny IS real!
#3 One of our investigators who had literally dropped off the face of the planet just happened to show up to a ward activity on Saturday and told us that her son got baptized up in the Denton ward!  Woooo hooooo!! Now the English Elders are teaching her :) Yay!/aww

#4  We have another investigator who I was convinced Hermana Millet had just invented que se llama Connie.  We have literally stopped by her house 100 times and I still have yet to meet her! Any ways she just called Hermana Hatfield yesterday and said that she needs us to come over because she's having a really hard time and needs God back in her life. Haha...sometimes I love it when God chastens people :)

#5  We went contacting on Sunday and talked to 3 people, taught 3 lessons, gave out 3 Book of Mormons, and got 3 return citas! Not bad - Haha!

It was just one of those weeks where you really just feel like the heavens are open.  I feel seriously so blessed to be here!! I LOOOVE TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh and all of you guys -
