This week was pretty great. I am tired ALL THE TIME even though I'm getting a solid 8 hours of sleep every night, which I've never done in my whole life. Anyways, the weather hasn't been too bad lately; it gets a little toasty in the afternoons, when we happen to be tracting the most, but it cools off at night. Also it has been raining the past couple days which is a HUGE tender mercy! :)
We taught our first investigator this week! His name is Tim, he's an awesome man, and he says the funniest things. He calls Sister Plante and I "the Sisterhood" and says he likes talking to us because we're all "homies in the Lord." And he says he's worried about today's youth because they're not very "receptacle" to the "Word." Hahaha he's just hilarious!
A miracle happened yesterday! So on Sundays we do our studies at night because those are the least productive proselyting hours, so we were studying in our apartment with the window open and we heard this lady calling, "Shadow! Shadow!" over and over again, like she was looking for her cat. Sister Plante and I both got the feeling that we should go out and help her look. It turns out she is brand brand new in our apartment complex and she's looking for a church in the area!!! She said she wants to meet some ladies who will be her friends and I was like... We have a whole Society for that!!! Haha. It was pretty miraculous, she is a really sweet lady and hopefully we can teach her soon!
Besides that we still haven't been teaching much. We have met with some members and that is fun, but I really just want to teach someone!!! For now though we will just keep tracting I guess :)
Oh, something great happened yesterday! I GOT TO PLAY GUITAR!!! At a member's house. I almost cried, it made me so happy. I only had time for the Ugly Sweater song but I was content just to play at all :) Kayli you better be loving my guitar while I'm gone!
I heard about the Supreme Court and all the same-sex marriage craziness! Obviously I don't know much, but everything I've heard just strengthens my testimony that we have living prophets on the earth today! I mean, just look at how many of April's general conference talks were about marriage and family! I have been thinking about families a ton (mine especially:) ) lately because everything -- EVERYTHING!!! -- In the gospel points to families and how they make us happy. Mom, Dad, I just want to say THANK YOU for getting all us Kirchhoefer kids to church on Sundays, no matter how tough it can be to do that!
Love you bunches! Have a great week:)
