Thursday of last week I had my first MLC (Missionary Leadership Conference). It was a lot of fun! We talked a lot about the smart phones and about how they'll help us out in our missionary work. They're going to help the work progress so much and I'm so excited! The most exciting part of MLC though was when all the electricity went out in the middle of President Pratt's training. We had a wicked wind/freezing rain storm that cut all our power. So we finished up the meeting with a song and prayer in the dark. Then President grounded us all in the metro and wouldn't let anyone go back to their areas that night. So we ended up with 12 sisters in the STLT's tiny little apartment!
We had a lesson with a potential investigator named C____ that night and it was seriously one of the best lessons ever! Teaching with Sister Lefler is so much fun! We just work so well together that it's become so much easier to teach by the Spirit. I know that God is involved in every aspect of a missionary's life because that morning for personal study, I just randomly decided to read a chapter in Acts that was all about the gift of tongues, and during our lesson, C_____ had lots of questions about the gift of tongues (she used to go to a Pentecostal church) and because of what I had studied that morning, I was able to answer all of her questions with confidence and scriptural support. So that was cool.
That night we drove back into town to finish the night off with some knocking. I was shivering so bad I couldn't even talk normally so we were super happy when this family let us in and allowed us to teach them! It was so awesome and they were so sweet! The husband wasn't as interested but the wife was and she wants to be baptized! She just told us that she wants to make sure she understands everything first. She texted us the next day and asked if we would be able to get her ride to church this Sunday! UM, HECK YEAH. I love being a missionary.
Anyways.I got pretty sick. We planned to go street contacting in a neighboring town and I was so exhausted. When we parked the car, I seriously conked out for 15 minutes. I just couldn't keep my eyes open! Luckily, Sister Lefler was able to call some of our potentials during that time. When I woke up, I was super disoriented, but ignored sister Lefler's suggestion to call the mission nurse. Soooo. . . We went street contacting for a few hours instead! That night we had 6 other companionships in our apartment because the next day was Zone Conference, so I just stayed in the bedroom.
During Zone Conference I felt even worse, so Sister Lefler made me call the nurse afterwards who - just as I feared - grounded us for the rest of the day :P So I spent the rest of yesterday in a drug induced coma. YAY. Sister Arnold (the nurse) chewed me out over the phone for not calling her earlier but I didn't want to admit I was sick. Plus, I didn't want to be grounded from Zone Conference. And now I'm just praying I didn't get anyone else sick. . .
But I'm feeling better now! After lots of sleeping. Ugh, being sick is the worst. I just feel bad for Sister Lefler who has no choice but to be stuck inside with me :P
Well. I love you all!!! I love reading your emails every week! Sorry that I haven't sent a lot of pictures recently. It's just been so cold out that I don't want to take my hands out of my pockets (and much less out of my mittens) in order to use my camera.
