Ludwigsburg ROUND 3!!!!
Well as you can guess from the title I am staying in Ludwigsburg for a third transfer!!! I am so excited!!!!! And I am staying with Sister Cook!!!! We were so relieved when we got the call that we were staying. Unfortunately we no longer have elders here. They are getting shut down. So that will be something new and different. But hopefully they come back next transfer. I have no idea. But I really hope so. It will be weird to go to appointments without them. But I am really glad that Sister Cook and I are together. We will be able to finish our missions here in Ludwigsburg. She is going home in 6 weeks and then I will get someone new and finish here as well I think. It will be so much fun. We have some great things going on here right now.
So miracles of the week. There are so many it is just hard to describe. We were so blessed this week.
We had some great things happen on Tuesday and all but Wednesday we got a call from S and he told us the he didn't have too much time but that his girlfriend N had time and she was also interested. She is visiting from a place in Germany called Bochum. She is here to visit him since she is just writing her Master Thesis and can do it anywhere. We set up a time for Thursday and we were super excited.
Thursday morning runs around and we go to catch our train to our appointment and it just falls out. So that means we are going to be late since it just decided not to come. We quickly ran to jump on a bus and called her to tell her we would be a few minutes late. We then ran from the bus stop to where she was waiting for us. It was defiantly a work out. :) But it was worth it. Ever since we have met N our lives have changed. That sounds a little corny but it is really true. We met with her and explained what we do and how we want to help people. She then asked if we could meet every day so that she could learn. We have seen her every day since Thursday. And she just progresses so much over the course of a day. She started reading the title page of the book of Mormon and the second time we met with her she said "I watched some things on you tube because I was confused" That made us a little worried since you never know what is on the internet. But turns out she was really confused about the book of Mormon (even though we told her she wouldn't fully understand and we would explain tomorrow.) And said she didn't want to read it cuz she was totally confused. So she went onto you tube and searched some things. She made her way to Mormon channel and proceeded to watch 53 videos about the book of Mormon and the church. She basically got all the videos about all the stories in the Book Of Mormon!!! Then she had a desire to read and more fully understand. She is awesome!!! Is in now in First Nephi and getting farther every day. She still watches lots of stuff on Mormon channel and we got her the gospel library app. Today she told us that she would love to come and be a joint teach with others and help them understand our message. We want to set a baptismal date with her, but she technically lives in another mission and we are not sure if she can get baptized here or needs to go to the ward where she is living. But we are basically best friends and we love her. She is amazing and she came to church on Sunday and LOVE IT!!!! She promised all the members that she would be there next week as well. She just takes everything and wants to learn more. She is one of the biggest miracles I have seen my whole mission. Pray for her that she will make the transition well when she goes back home.
Another miracle is that our less active that we are working with came to church on Sunday. She said it was great to feel the spirit again and wants to come back regularly now. And we go visit her every week. So crazy that we met her on a bus and had no idea she was even a member. And we have been able to help her so much.
As I look back at this week I know that God is blessing us to do the work that he has called us to do. Helping people come to the knowledge of the gospel is the best feeling. I love it!!! I know without a doubt that it is true and that God qualifies those he calls. I know that he is preparing his children all over the world and that nothing is as important as to keep him in our lives. Trials are good because they make us stronger and I love looking back and knowing that God was right beside me all along the way. Keep him in your thoughts and He is always with you and strengthening you. I love you all and hope you have a wonderful and successful week!!!! You are all such wonderful examples to me and I could not ask for better family and friends. LOVE YOU!!
