How are you all doing! 🙂 Wow it has been so fun to read your letters and see all the fun things that you all have going on! I am praying for you all and hope you are doing soo great!!
This has been a super week here! I know that the Lord truly does bless each of us when we are working for him. These last few weeks we have been praying so hard and looking for families! It has been such an eye opener for me in seeing that Heavenly Father truly does work through the family. It has been challenging, but I know that we are supposed to be finding families. President Uchtdorf said in the Women´t conference that his wife was found when the misisonaries knocked on the last door of the 4th floor. We had a somewhat similar experience this week! My companions were out contacting as I was working with a sister from our ward, and they went and contacted the last house at the very end of the street! They found a mother and her two little kids and shared a short message with them. She invited them back for the next day and we all went together! She had told us that her husband got off work at 7 or 8 but we can´t be in that area after dark so we passed by at about 6. Miracle 1- her husband was home and they invited us in. We taught them about how much Heavnely Father loves them and they were excited about our message and invited us back for the next day. We went the next day and taught them about the restoration and they were soo awesome! They understood so well and at the end the husband had 2 questions. 1- Could he keep listening even if he knew he had sins and wouldnt be perfect, and 2- what to wear to church on sunday! AHh we were sooo excited for them and they did go to church! We went and picked them up on sunday and went with them to church! The only challenging thing is that they have a little autistic boy. He cant be left alone so he had to go to the classes with them, and would randomly scream and cry, but they are so humble and patient and I can truly feel the love that Heavenly Father has for this sweet family!! I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has blessed us to be able to work with them and am excited to help them!!!
I´m sorry this is so short, but I hope you all have a great week and remember that I love you all so much!!
Love, Hermana Hawkes
