Washington, Week 10

Well, I am now a missionary in the Washington Seattle Mission!

This week has been pretty good! On Monday we got 2 new investigators! :)

Tuesday we were able to go to the temple and we did initiatories :) That was really great. We also taught another lesson to Beth Eno's family. Her boyfriend read from the Book of Mormon and he liked it, so that's always great! :)

Wednesday and Thursday we had lessons with Tiffany again. She's progressing so well and she just gets it. Unfortunately Wednesday and Thursday I was under my chiropractor's orders to rest and heal because on Monday I fell and hurt myself kind of all over...yeah, I'm awesome like that ;)

On Friday we were able to attend a special Sisters Training Meeting with President and Sister Wilson, which was awesome because we got to hear from them one more time, plus I got to see all of my MTC friends! :) Then later on, we got ANOTHER new investigator and taught a lesson! :) How awesome is that?!

On Saturday we were able to teach Jerry again and I extended a "soft baptism invite" to him and he accepted! :) We also had dinner with a less active couple and they ended up coming to church yesterday!

Yesterday we were able to have lessons with Jan Lee, who was baptized in September, and her non-member husband, and with another less active man in the ward. We also were able to talk to a potential investigator and he told us that he will come to the ward's annual pancake breakfast on the 4th! :) So, that's great!

One thing that is so amazing is that at the beginning of this month, President Wilson had extended a challenge to us for each of the companionships in the mission to have 3 progressing investigators, and as of Saturday, we got our 3rd! :) Our district leader told us last night that every companionship in our district has reached 3 progressing investigators! What a wonderful miracle to witness! :)

Well, I think that's about it for this week. It was really good though, especially with me being "laid up" for a couple days!

Now we are Seattle missionaries and our new mission president just arrived at SeaTac! His name is President Yoon Hwan Choi (pronounced Chay). He is from South Korea, and he is a general authority! He is a member of the first council of the 70 and he is part of the council for directing the temples.

I'm very excited for what is to come. It will be wonderful! :)

Continue to look for those missionary opportunities that are all around you!

Love Always, Sister Stanley
