This past week was the marking of the 1 year that I've been a missionary and it has been a crazy/exciting/amazing/fast year, for sure. I'm excited for another year of service but for now, here are the deets for this previous week!
So, we got to experience yet another Tornado here in Tulsa. Some other missionaries and us were enjoying lunch at this elderly lady's home when all of a sudden, the wind picks up super fast and it starts pouring rain! She turned the news on and it was saying how it was happening just a couple miles from where we were! No, we didn't get to actually see the tornado but it wasn't too serious of one. We still stayed inside and safe for a couple hours until it passed then we got to go out and do some service the next day for people that were affected by it. There was a lot of fallen trees everywhere so we had fun going from house to house and helping people clean up.
Let me tell you about Conluska ( Yep, that's her name) So, cool story. A member introduced us to this lady that needed help moving. They met off of Greg's list some crazy way and I would like to give all the details of the story but it's hard to type out. Anyway, we helped her move last week. It's her, her two daughters that are 10 and 7, and her parents. We taught her and her parents about the Restoration and they loved it. They were so impressed how willing we were to help strangers out of a tough situation. We gave them the Restoration pamphlet and gave them all copies of the Book of Mormon. Fast forward a couple of days. We go back to check on how they are doing. They start talking about the pamphlet and the Book of Mormon and there words were,"I've never heard any of this before in my life, but for some reason it all just makes sense. It's just clicking with me!" If that doesn't get you pumped about missionary work, I don't know what will! They weren't able to make it to church yesterday because of some stuff that came up but they are eager to come and find out more about the church!
This is proof that God uses members also to do his work. When he knows that someone is ready for the gospel, sometimes he is going to try and send a member to reach out to them. As members, we need to always make sure that we are in a position to run those errands for God whenever he needs them done. I encourage you to always yield to the promptings of the spirit because we never know when we are going to have a positive effect on someone else.
Much love to all of you where ever you may be!
