best 4th of July!

We had such an awesome week. 

Our new mission president came in and we had a zone conference where we were able to meet him. He was super cool. He’s from Arizona and is so excited to be our mission president. It was different without President Brinkerhoff but I know President Hancock will help us do amazing things! 

Nadine, left for Germany this week. We were sad to see her go. We helped her find the Meeting House that was close to her.  A small branch, we were able to get the Branch President’s phone number to. So we really hope she continues the discussions and has that desire to be baptized. 

We had a really cool experience with Trent this week. He has opened up to us and really sees a difference in his life since we started meeting it’s so awesome. We had a great lesson with him and his family at the Dayton’s. Trent told us that when the missionaries came to his door before he would tell them he appreciated what we did but no thank you. He said, he likes us a lot because we got to know him and he knows he can trust us. It was awesome to know that.  There are so many times when people say that to us and we keep movin on, but here someone who would have said it is now letting us teach him. I am so grateful that God allowed us to have this opportunity and to soften Trent’s heart. 

We had such a fun 4th of July. We had an all day p day. I definitely made use of it. We went and watched the hot air ballooons take off at 6am then we were in the town parade on a members float. Then went on an awesome hike. Then helped a family move pipe (first time i ever did that) and watched a movie with the zone. Then watched the fire works. It was the best! 

Something that the Lord reminded me of this week, is how He always provides us with someone to help us through our trials. Sometimes that someone is so random and that’s how you know the Lord works through all His servants. I am so thankful for the lessons learned and those friends along the way who help. I know that we are those people for someone else also. We just need to follow the Spirit to those the Lord puts in our paths.

I love my mission and I’m so thankful for this experience.
