This past week we had a lot of incredible experiences. Zeke, our investigator getting baptized this Saturday, was able to meet President and Sister Jensen yesterday at the church! It was so neat and Zeke really enjoyed it. She has the strongest testimony I have ever seen of somewhere who is not currently a member.
A long time ago I entered the MTC and got my first missionary name badge and they put fun little stickers on the back. My first transfer in Hannibal, Missouri I went finding with Sister Despain and when I got to our apartment at the end of the night my badge was gone! we retraced our steps and looked everywhere we could and I never found it. I also spent the next 3 months in that area in which nobody ever found it either. This past week we went to our regular Zone Training meeting in Nauvoo and one of the AP's (Assistants to the President) came over and handed me that SAME EXACT badge that I had lost 8 months ago with the same stickers on the back! CRAZY stuff happening around here. I can't begin to imagine the 8 month long adventure that badge has taken to find me again. God is watching out for even our plastic things if we keep His commandments. lol
My favorite scripture from this morning's studies at the laundromat (yes, i have to go to that wretched place now) is, "be converted and BE HEALED." Simple, true and powerful.
