BIG spiders!!!

We had a wonderful week here in Palm Beach. Sister Aisa and I are still as happy as ever and getting along well. One of our investigators refers to us as a Mary and Martha combination and I couldn't agree more. We click and really compliment each other. We are different but it works. I love it.
Family Home Evening with our Ward Mission Leader.
We saw a miracle this week as all are plans fell through. We saw a woman and contacted her. We began just simply talking with her and transitioned into a harvest approach. She at first refused, but we were persistent and she accepted. At the end she was in tears and claimed that she knew God sent us to her. It was amazing. Sometimes all things must fall through so we can be right where God wants us to be.

This week I was really reminded that no effort is ever wasted. We had lots of opportunities to serve unexpectedly like helping others grocery shop or unload things from their cars etc. I love planting seeds. Interestingly enough, this week we have also been received by a lot of people because they have had positive encounters with missionaries before that have helped them and they have never forgotten. We never know how much good we do.
Our finding efforts are focused on individuals with cars, priesthood holders, and families as this is what the ward is greatly in need of. We know God is preparing these people. We are spiritually creating and we know we will find them.
Everything sounds good at home. It looks beautiful. Here there are so many squirrels, lizards, and BIG spiders. Haven't seen to many snakes thank goodness. The humidity has died down dramatically so it doesn't feel as hot even though it is. I am grateful.
Lots of fun things coming this week. We have a specialized training with President that I am excited for. It is always a revelatory experience. Transfers is next week so I won't be emailing until Tuesday.  Sister Aisa only has one more transfer left so it will be interesting to see what happens. How blessed we are to know that it is all in God's hands.
Have a great week!

Getting to bike in the rain all day with Sister Vaioleti on exchanges!! It was an eventful day. I am predicting it now that she will be my next companion! She is amazing.

This past week I got to go on a fire exchange with Sister Porter. It was her birthday and she is a twin!!
