Hi everyone! I hope your week was wonderful! This week was a load of random in this tiny little town/city of Hollister. But as always, this week was totally great!
Sis. Young and I had a wonderful week meeting with all bunch of different people., the Lord seriously looked out for us! It was one of those days that should have been filmed or written down by some poet or something. We were able to meet a member of our ward that no one really knew about! She is 100 years old! She is just an amazing lady. She is just hilarious and was telling us all about her family. It was great. Then, we thought we were set to have appointment after appointment at the church. When slowly, everyone started letting us know that things weren't looking like they were going to work out to meet with us. So after a turn of events, we ended up at the church without our bikes. Haha! Oh missionary work! But we decided to try to just walk and visit a few people.
We visited with one less-active member of our ward that we haven't been able to meet with since I've gotten to Hollister. It was amazing and she told us she was actually really glad we came and that she wants to meet with us again. It was amazing! Then, it gets even better. (Okay everyone, this story is going to get slightly confusing so I'm sorry if it doesn't make sense by then end) But to start, a member of our ward told us last week that he ran into a bus driver from his wife's work who was looking to leave his church and so our wonderful member missionary of a ward member told him if he's willing to investigate other churches, he wants him to try out ours at least. Well, as it would work out. Sis. Young and I were walking down the street and no one was out except for one man painting his fence. We told him, hello, and started talking with him and just happen to find out that he's a bus driver and was talking to some lady's husband at his work who was telling him about this church he should try out! If my story telling skills were as terrible as I thought they were...long story short, we met the man that our member had talked to! How crazy! In all of Hollister that man is the one painting his fence! And none of that would've happened if we hadn't had all of our appointments fall through. It was seriously a miracle!
Then to top that Tall off we had a wonderful lesson with our little investigator who got a really good grade on her math test. So we asked her if she like math and she thought about it for a while and then said, "I like math....unless I don't get it." Hahaha! That's hilarious.
In other news, we also got locked out of our apartment. The other sisters accidentally took both sets of house keys with them. Haha. So, the elders tried to help us out after we all did service but luckily the sisters ended up coming back early. So there's one of us locked out... :)
Well, I hope you all have a great week! This next one is going to be amazing! My old investigator from the Mandarin Branch is getting baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
