So many miracles this week! So much to tell!
- About 4 months ago, Sister Jolley and I ran into this guy named Mika at a car wash. He told us that he used to take lessons and that he really wanted to start taking them again, but he was in Waianae ward. We weren't in Waianae ward at the time, so we referred him to the missionaries who were in the ward. Then, when we were at one of our LA member's house, we saw him walk out from behind the house (there are houses behind the member's house) and he was shocked to see us! We kept trying to set appointments with him, but they all fell through. Then, we finally were able to meet with him last week! He told us that he knows that the church is true and that he wants to be baptized. He even said that he wants to quit his job, so that he doesn't work Sundays. So dedicated.😂 He is set to be baptized on the 7th of June.
- Savana and Shanaia's mom came to General Conference with them!!!! It was really awesome. She sat through the whole thing, and Sister Alldredge made this bingo game for the girls, but the mom did it the whole time. It was really cute. We have really high hopes for their family. They have a long way to go, but I think that they will make it.
- General Conference was so great. I really loved Elder Holland's at the end. I felt like I could do anything after his talk. I am so grateful for everyone who spoke. It was exactly what I needed.
I have been thinking a lot about the Holy Ghost lately. It is amazing that Heavenly Father has given us someone to guide us to all of the right answers in the test of life. He won't give us the answers, necessarily, but he will guide us to them, if we are willing to do our part. We always have our agency to act according to the answers that we discover. This time as a missionary is becoming more and more precious to me as i see how much closer I am to the Holy Ghost than I ever have before. I feel that I am being trained to more easily recognize the Holy Ghost in my life, so that when I get home and no longer am serving a full-time mission, I still have the Holy Ghost constantly guiding me in my life. What a blessing it is to have such a precious gift.
Anywho.. I love you all! I hope you have a great week!!!
Love, Sister Barber
