This week we did a mission-wide 9-9!!! Every companionship in the mission was out knocking doors from 9am to 9pm!! It was a blast and with approval many of us changed companions for the area. I knocked with Elder Daley, a new missionary. We had a ton of fun just walking the entire day and looking for miracles/water haha! In the morning we found a ton of people that said we could come back so that was a tender mercy, and we even found 1 family while we were knocking that moved form Chicago because they want a change in their lives. Bingo!! It's the gospel! So we are just trying to teach them and help them see that this is the change that will benefit their family the most!
Yesterday we had a "Why I Believe Fireside" in the North Stake. We had some really great new members speak. One of the speakers was a little bit nervous but her testimony was so powerful as she spoke about the trials she had been going through for the past couple years. She mentioned that the reason she joined the church is because she wanted to be a part of a better family, with better values, and that is exactly what she saw in the Mormon church! Another guy spoke on how he joined the church cause he yelled out one night, "God give me a sign that you're still there!" He then continued and said that not even a minute later two young men on bikes road up next to him and stopped to talk to him! -Good timing! haha. Anyway a very inspirational night and Elder Sutton also played his last piano piece that he will ever play at a "Why I Believe Fireside" because he went home today.😢
