The Woodlake Sisters

Area: Converse
Companion: Sister Sarah Felix


We moved in with the Woodlake Ward Sister missionaries this week. A senior couple is moving into our apartment. It's been kind of crazy because there is one bathroom and five Sister's. Woodlake is in a threesome. It's worked out though. :)

We had an incredible experience with one of our investigators last week. His name is [S]. He's been investigated the church for a little over a year. He is so solid and ready to be baptized, except that he needs to change his living situation. We had the lesson with Bishop Gibson and pretty much laid it down. The spirit was so strong, and he agreed to change his living situation and be baptized on November 1. Please keep him in your prayers! He really needs them. At the end of the lesson we all knelt and prayed individually. By the end he was so choked up. He and Bishop hugged for a long time. Steve exclaimed, "I feel so good!" It was a really special moment. We're trying to keep in as much contact as we can with him to keep him going strong.

President Monson said something in General Conference that really struck me. "Remember the elderly and the home bound." There is an elderly woman in our ward who's husband passed away a couple weeks ago. We went and visited her on October 11th (Grandma Rowley's birthday, right?). It was brief, but we sang a song and shared a scripture with her. Come to find out, that day was her husbands birthday. There is no way we could have known that. The Lord knows the hearts of each of us. I'm grateful to have been there for her on that difficult day.

I'm so glad to be a missionary! I love you all! Always be positive, and things will work out.
