We had a less active come to church yesterday for the first time in years! She loved it! Another lady we invited back to church got called to the RS Presidency, so that was cool to see happen. We are teaching a lot lately. We even have a pretty strong baptismal date finally haha. She is the niece of a family in the ward. She is 18 and has a baby but really wants to change her life. We read through the burying your weapons story in Alma with her and 2 other people this week. I have never used that story too much before, but this week I felt the spirit so strong while reading it I almost teared up and wanted to read it with everyone. Think of how converted those Anti Nephi Lehis were--and the great example they became to millions. Go read it.
Another less active is having a lot of luck quitting smoking by reading the BOM in the morning. She actually told us, ''I started doing what you said and reading in the morning. Now, when I want to smoke, my body rejects the cigarette. It's like magic--are you guys witches?'' Haha that made me so happy to hear. Really, the BOM has power. I know that book is true! It is just so dang powerful.
Okay, the bad news is that I forgot to charge my camera all week and so I only have this one picture. But hey, it's kinda a funny story. We were grocery shopping and had to walk all the way to the metro station in the POURING rain. It was cold and we were walking through water like a foot deep with heavy bags. A super nice stranger offered to help carry some of our bags and followed us around while carrying an umbrella over our heads (even though we were already soaked, it was sweet.) I love nice strangers. We got his reference to pass to other missionaries.
