“G” came to church this Sunday!!! Us missionaries have been working with him for six plus months and he finally came! We had a really good lesson with him last time we saw him even though his friends were there. I am so glad he used his free agency and came! One of our ward missionaries picked him up and took him to church. The only thing was they showed up two hours early and went to the wrong ward. hahaha At least he went!!! Next week is Stake Conference so we’ll all meet together at 10:00am, we hope he will keep coming!
I heard about the Fort Lauderdale Temple being almost done! We will not be able to go to the Temple Open House as it is outside of our Mission area.
It has been cold in Florida the past few days. It is a different type of cold than Canada. The cold here sticks to your bones because of the humidity. My fingers always freeze. Everyone that shakes my hand says they are like icicles. Nothing like Canada though. Most of the time I don’t wear a jacket unless it is raining. The good news is we found a new solid investigator this week, she actually doesn’t have much of a religious history (which is rare), so we are excited about that! Anyways, I love being a missionary!
We’re working hard and hopefully we’re at least planting seeds. I am definitely learning a lot more training than I did being a trainee. I am actually retaining things now whereas before I felt like I was just barely getting through. There is a lot of need for service in our ward right now, we actually got to help out lots with redoing one of our ward members houses they are moving into. It is looking really good and we have just about everything moved in. When we first started doing service she was scatterbrained telling us what to do. We got her to make lists and that really helped things move along for everyone.
Honestly, thanks to all for the advice on how to be a successful trainer!
Jackeileen, yes, I will be clean so she will love me! Look at our room.
Love you all sooooo much! Sister Winkler
