This week EVERY lesson we had planned fell through. Every single one! It happens :) Haha! After much tribulation comes the blessings, and we had a huge blessing.
The first day of the transfer Sister Petersen and I had found a new investigator named Monika. Earlier this week we stopped by and Monika wasn't home, but her husband was. We invited him to talk with us when we talked to Monika, and he said, "Maybe." On Friday we finally sat down with Monika and Rob. They are both really "tough" looking people. I have never heard more colorful words in my life than what comes out of Monika's mouth, and Rob is equally as intimidating. We got talking, and Monika has investigated almost every religion.. except for mormonism. She doesn't believe in God, but she knows that somehow, somewhere, she will be able to receive the answers which she needs. We had a really powerful lesson on the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that he can heal us-physically, emotionally, spiritually. He can heal a life which has been torn apart through disobedience to the commandments. THAT is pretty remarkable. Monika and Rob both cried, and I am so grateful that the spirit of the Lord was able to touch their hearts.
I love each and every one of you! I am almost out of time today, but this next week is Sister Petersen's last week in the mission field, and we are planning on working the hardest we ever have. She has a heart of gold.
Love you all!
