Lindsay - October 26, 2015
Hi Everyone! This week was awesome!!
We had exchanges on Wednesday, and I was with Sister Chandler from my MTC district! We had so much fun together! We visited a lot of people but they weren't home, and we had the hardest time talking to strangers!! So we went to an apartment complex, and I saw this guy that looked like he was YSA. So I said, "Let's go up there and talk to him!" There comes a point in time where you have to go to talk to someone before the guilt of not doing it gets to ya! So we did! And it was awesome! He ended up accepting a Book of Mormon!! Even though he told us that he was going to move in a week, we gave him a Book of Mormon!!
On Thursday we taught a guy named Michael. The elders in our zone were teaching him, but since he is a single adult, we had a pass off lesson where we start teaching him. He has never had a belief in God, but he wants to pursue it, and he has been reading everything that the elders have asked him to read! He has such a strong faith, and he has so much potential!
On Friday for YSA wards, they have dollar lunch. You pay a dollar to eat an amazing meal! Before the lunch they have a devotional. In this devotional, they picked 3 recent converts to share their story and answer questions. It was amazing! Their testimonies were so strong, and there stories were miracles! I wish you could have all been there, because it was just a testimony builder to me that these people have truly sacrificed everything for the gospel! After lunch, we helped Kelly set up an account to work on her family history! We are planning to go on a temple trip so that she can do baptisms for the first time! She is so excited to go to the temple, and she is thrilled to help her family!
On Saturday we went to Hope Fest! It is an amazing event where anyone can go and receive free food, free clothes, and free dental! It is amazing! We worked in the clothes section, and discovered that Deseret Industries sent two huge pods ( trucks) full of clothes from Salt Lake!! There were also many other churches that were involved. It was so amazing to be a part of it! We helped everyone find specific clothes in the aisles. They were so sweet, and some people were so desperate that they just grabbed clothes without looking at the size. I felt the love that God has for his children by serving them. It was awesome!
We also met with Kara and Brian. Brian is a less active, and Kara is an investigator. She gave her first prayer, and she did amazing! We see so much potential in them! So those are the highlights of my week! I love you all! Have a great week!
Sincerely, Sister Dunn
