March 24 -Large doors swing on small hinges

24 Mar

What an AMAZING week! I feel like I just meet a whole bunch of famous people! And I did- church celebrities of course 😀 On Saturday we had a mission wide conference where Elder Neil L. Anderson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Elder Hallstrom of the Presiding Quorum of the Seventy, Bishop Causse (who speaks French!), of the Presiding Bishopric, and the presiding area seventy! SO cool eh!? It was amazing and we felt the Spirit so strongly. And it was so neat to shake their hands, all of us missionaries individually. Then on Sunday we had stake conference where Elder Hallstrom addressed us. We have been so spiritually feed this weekend! I loved how much they spoke of really…

And guess who came to stake conference?! Sister Q!!! She came, after about 5 years of not coming she came! And she really liked it 😀 And she brought her friend (who we are also teaching!) with her and he really liked it! We were able to go over that evening and they both enjoyed it and you can see how much more P (her friend who we are teaching) is receptive to the gospel and seems even happier! We read the scriptures with Sister Q and she just had all this great insights into it! It was exciting to see her stop and talk to us about the verses and relate it to herself 🙂

The Equinox. Only happens twice a year! You can balance an egg! How neat is that!

p>Yesterday just felt like miracle Sunday! We had an amazing stake conference and I just felt so uplifted and spiritually soaring haha 🙂 We had some of our returning members come (including J and her son!) too 😀 On the way home we took the metro and bus. We were walking up the escalator and I noticed someone I have talked to a few times before going down, I called out to him (called him the wrong name, again haha). He saw us and was like hey! And came up to talk to us. His name is M. I remember having a feeling to talk to him almost 6 months before. He wasn’t interested then. We saw him another time, this time he accepted a card. The next time we saw him (always at least a month or two inbetween) he accepted a Book of Mormon. When we saw him yesterday he said he had been reading the Book of Mormon, just the beginning, and searching some things because of curiousity. We were able to talk to him and it was great. And before we left we asked if he would be interested in meeting with us- he said yes and said a church tour would be interesting! It’s great to see that by small things, step by step, great things can be accomplished.

Well, there are so many more amazing things that happened this week but I’ll leave it at that. I love you all and am super happy to read how you are all doing. Thanks for your examples of serving the Lord! I love you and hope you have a great week!

Love,
Sister Godfrey 🙂
