Week #28 - 2015 Jun 01 - Tough Cookie

Hey one! Hey all!

HOLD THE PHONE. IT'S MY 6 MONTH MARK TODAY! I'VE BEEN IN NORTH CAROLINA, OUT IN THE FIELD, FOR 6 MONTHS!!! Whattttt?! I have no idea where the time is going...but it's flying somewhere! Wowza. That's crazy. 


This week was pretty good. It was a slower week. But that's just because Sister Peterson was not feeling good AT ALL. Seriously...she was in the bathroom for majority of the week. Ahh not good. But we worked when we could! I also didn't want to push her too hard....but I probably did haha. Whoops. She's been sick for a week, has gotten 2 priesthood blessings and she still isn't feeling that prayers would be wonderful for her :) 

A big thing that happened this week though was right after district meeting on Wednesday. We (Sister Peterson and I) both received some revelation for our area and after much pondering and prayer, we decided that we were going to wipe our investigator board. We thought about it and none of our investigators are progressing. And we need to be spending our time looking for the people that are ready to hear the gospel and WILL progress. So we decided that in order to make time for that we needed to stop focusing on the investigators that we were working with and start fresh. So that's exactly what we did! We took our whiteboard cloth and literally wiped our investigator board clean. This week is dedicated to finding the elect. We're excited to get to work and find those people that WANT to come closer to Christ :) So if y'all want to pray for the people in our area and that we'll be able to find those that are ready to hear the gospel as well that would be wonderful! Thank you!

We made cookies with Sister Horn to give to less active people in Ft. Bragg and Fayetteville 3. And right quick before I go on, these cookies are the best cookies in the world. The recipe is called "Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies" and it's not lying. They are literally perfect. Like too legit to quit. PERFECT. I'll send you the recipe one of these days and y'all will have to try it out! SO GOOD. Okay anyway, we delivered first to Fay 3 and let me tell you. We had 5 bags of cookies to give to 5 different families. Well, we only gave 2 bags of cookies to the families that they were intended for. The rest went to people we just met. No one answered their door and we would always find someone outside as we turned around and were walking to our car. So instead of going straight to the car and driving away, we went and talked to the ladies that we saw. We met an 82 year old lady, an 81 year old lady, and a 74 year old lady! (All at different times) It was so much fun getting to know them and talking to them! I just love old ladies aha they're just so sweet and funny and they have the best stories! I love it :) So we could potentially have 2 new investigators this week! The 74 year old is a strong baptist it'll take some time to soften her heart towards the church. But one day!! :) The other 2 ladies told us they would love for us to come back :) So that was awesome! 

Like I said, it's been a slower week so I don't have a whole lot to report on! I hope you all had a wonderful week and I hope this next one is even better :) Always remember that I love you to pieces, but God loves you even more!! 

Love and miss you all. Take care! And keep smiling!
