Week 33 - March 22, 2017 - Princeton, West Virginia

Hey everyone! So transfers came this week and I am staying in Princeton along with Elder Roberts.
Princeton is kind of like Gallipolis. It's a pretty decent sized city haha. The ward is (overall) pretty helpful in missionary work. 
I haven't eaten anything crazy really. Although I did have some gross as fetch ribs yesterday that made me have the worst stomach ache this morning. Literally I hate ribs now.

This week was a lot slower than the past couple have been but we were able to see so many miracles with our investigators that I'll talk about in a sec! But first things first. Mom, I hope you had an incredible birthday on Sunday! Thank you for all that you've done for me and for always being there. I love you so much Also, happy anniversary yesterday to my parents! Seriously love you guys! 


Vanessa Cox (investigator). So she's been taught by missionaries for a LONG time! And she has never come to church. But on Sunday, she finally came!!! Wahooo!! She's on date for April 15th and I have a really good feeling that she's gonna make it! Just keep praying for her that she'll be fully ready for that sacred and beautiful day! 

Janet and Griff Williams (investigators). So they didn't come to church on Sunday but they DID come to the fireside that we had on Sunday! And Griff told us, at first, that they weren't gonna come but then he got a feeling that he should ask God if they should go. So he prayed and asked and he received the answer, "These missionaries were placed in your path for a reason. Find that reason." So they ended up coming!! It was so awesome! 


So I've done this one before but I seriously love this one! The challenge for you guys this week is to do something COMPLETELY ANONYMOUSLY for someone! For example, leave a plate of cookies on someone's doorstep, clean your sibling's room, etc. I've done that quite a bit this week with my companion and you honestly get such a good feeling when you do it. Because we shouldn't be doing "good things" for people to receive recognition. That makes us prideful if that becomes the reason we choose to do good. So do something anonymous for someone!


So my companion and I were ordering food (again) and my companion ordered first. And the person that was taking our order was, yet again, teenage girl. She called my companion "Sweetie" after he ordered and he turned around and smirked at me. And I just rolled my eyes haha. But then after I ordered, she called me "babe" and I instantly started laughing. I looked over at my companion and he throws his bag of food on the ground and screams, "I'M TIRED OF HAVING ATTRACTIVE COMPANIONS!!" Hahaha! I fetching died! Cuz he literally screamed it so loud in the restaurant! Haha!

Anyways, I hope you all have a great week! Always stand up for what is right! Love you all :) thank you for your prayers and support! Means a lot!
