Bon Courage 15 100 days down!!! hhaha don't worry I wasn't counting February 25th, 2014

Hello! This week I turned 100 mission days old so we celebrated by making cookies for all of our investigators and I used the frosting that Allyson sent me for Valentines day so that was just divine. 

This week was crazy with ups and downs and things falling through and things working out and the Lord providing a way. So the week went pretty normal until Saturday when we had the best day ever!! It was amazing because Friday was the worst day ever. But on Saturday we went to our first appointment and it went well, side-note, there was a random pig head just sitting on the front steps of this persons house and it was terrifying. After that we saw this family sitting outside their house and we went up and contacted them and they told us to sing to them; naturally we whipped out families can be together forever. It was great and they sang along and we taught them about the plan of salvation. The mom said she was catholic but believes in reincarnation but by the end of the lesson she loved the plan of salvation. Its so perfect! Like I would pick the perfect plan of happiness over reincarnation too. Our investigator M called us and told us he couldn't com to the baptism with us because he forgot it was his birthday and his family and friends all came over to surprise him; but he wanted us to come to his party! We told him we would come after the baptism. Then we went to a baptism and on the bus on the way contacted this man who came to the baptism with us! He isn't in our area so we can't teach him but the elders are very excited. We went to grab M a birthday milfoy (pastry thing with custard in it) and at the boulangerie met this dad who was so closed to the gospel but then talked to us for a minute and asked us why we are on missions and his heart was softened and now we are having lunch with him and his family and teaching them on saturday. Then we went to family G (muslim dad and Jehova Witness mom) and had the best lesson ever because it was totally guided by the spirit. We went in fasting to resolve her concerns about the Book of Mormon and thats exactly what happened! She gave the most powerful prayer at the end pleading to know if everything was true. I just wanted to listen to it over and over! Then we went to M and taught a lesson at his birthday party to him and all his friends and he came to church and it was just a miracle day!!

Sister Tenney and I are getting along great. I look up to her so much, she is such a good missionary. We were watching the district for Training this week and at one point one of the sisters says 'I know Heavenly Father is proud of me as a missionary' it was just so powerful (and I maybe embarrassingly started crying during the district) I just want to make Heavenly Father proud of me as a missionary!

I love you!!
