Better Late Than Never

This week was really good!

On Tuesday we had a super cool experience with Ms. Debbie, our recent convert.

So we were planning to teach her about missionary work, and it was obviously the right topic. We went to her house and she asked if we could go with her to pray with her neighbor downstairs. Her neighbor’s son had committed suicide 2 days before and Ms. Debbie felt very sad for her. So we went downstairs and Sister Manufekai and I met her and testified about the Plan of Salvation and taught her about what we believe happens after we die. And then we stood up and held hands to pray and Ms. Debbie said the prayer. The spirit was sooo strong!! We all told Teresa (that’s her name) that we were there for her if she ever needed any uplifting or anything. THEN Ms. Debbie invited her to come listen in on her lessons with us every Tuesday and Friday and Teresa said ya I’ll definitely do that sometime. So hopefully this next week she will be with us :). And then we went back up and said you just taught your own lesson! It was so cool to see how happy it made Teresa and Ms. Debbie to share with her the gospel.

We volunteered at a soup kitchen on Friday night at a catholic school. It was so fun! We got to talk to lots of people and talk about Jesus Christ and how He can help us with anything we go through. It was a very humbling experience. Sometimes I forget to rely on Jesus Christ. These people have almost nothing and He is all they have to rely on.

I got to spend the day in Ypsilanti on Thursday. Sister Manufekai had her one year temple trip, so I needed a companion. It was so fun! The sisters there have Eastern Michigan University in their area so we tried to contact on campus. But neither of us were very practiced at it. So we basically just walked around and said Hi to people. But then this guy looked at us and we looked at him and he looked at us and he said “Did you ladies want to talk?” And we were like Sure! Haha. So we talked to him about the Book of Mormon. He said he’d have to do some more research on it before he could meet with us again, but he wanted to see us on campus again sometime. So hopefully the Ypsi sisters will get to teach him. I’m glad some people are more brave than I am :).

I gotta go. I love you so much!!!!! Thanks for being the best :).
