"Our goofy-ness. In the car we were jamming out to "My call to serve" and "The work"! I love those CD's!!"

"The land of Maricopa"

"Lesson with recent convert, M*, our ward mission leader- Brother B in the back- and then Sister Eggleston's last companion on skype! Super cool!"

    Holy Cow, This week was truly amazing. I don't have time and can't put into words how amazing it was. But Trust me, it was
This week was my 2nd time on my mission going on splits with sisters from the ward. And let me tell you, the Lord provides miracles when you are doing the work they way He wants it done. We had splits set up for almost everyday of the week, but not necessarily lessons set up for those times. So acting in Faith we went around to potential investigators, former investigators and would talk to people on the street. Everytime we went on splits the Lord provided us with people to teach. It was amazing and we found new investigators that way. Also there were several times this week where a member had to cancel on us so we would rush to find a different member and then that different member ended up being a perfect fellowship for that investigator and helped them progress and resolve their concerns. Members are the best.
We are still working with the B* family. They came to a baptism on Saturday and really liked it. The parents are still a little nervous because theirs is in 2 weeks, but the kids are excited. So we are praying hard for that family. K* came to mutual on Tuesday, came to the baptism on Saturday, came to church on Sunday and is excited for his baptism on august 9th! For a 17 year old, it is amazing how interested he is doing the right thing and being right with God. There are prepared people all over the world just waiting for the truth, because "they know not where to find it". It is our job to introduce it to them and invite them to learn more!
We are working with this lady named E*. She is catholic and is very sincere about her relationship with God. We introduced the Book of Mormon to her and it was so cool as she said that "I've always wondered why the bible is only in Jerusalem, what about the people on our side of the world? doesn't God love them too and want them to know about Jesus Christ". We told her that's exactly what the Book of Mormon shows and she was like "wow, you young girls know more wisdom than me, and are answering all my questions I've had my whole life!".
"C* and her family at the Temple"
Coolest part of the week. We have been working with a lady named C*. She is totally against the Book of Mormon, completely denied it, doesn't even want to touch it. She is very friendly though and open to hear more about our religion. On Saturday we took her whole family to the Mesa Temple visitors center! We watched Joseph Smith-the prophet of the Restoration and afterwards C* said she had goosebumps and felt comfort. We then went through the "God's plan for our family" where it talks about temples and that families are forever, and at the end we were all crying because the spirit was so strong as we testified to her that just like our families, her family can be together forever and have peace in her home. She said that this is what she has been seraching for in her life, and it just feels right. I know this church is true and that it really can bless our families. I love being a missionary! Hope you all have a wonderful week! - Sister Dewey
