Life in Dover

This week as been one of those weeks where you just feel like the Lord is just right there with you doing His work. He has literally prepared so many hearts for us. I am just so lucky to be able to be his servant!

So Tuesday we met this family that is literally the most dry Mormon family ever. Sister Eborn and I were so confused on why they weren't baptized! I mean they have four kids all under the age of 8 and they homeschool all of them! What gets more Mormon than that?! Haha no but really. We knocked on their door and they let us right in. We taught them the Restoration and they were asking questions. It was awesome. They even invited us back for dinner and another lesson. After we left we found out that they had been taught before and the only reason they were dropped was because the husband had to leave on a really long business trip but they know people in the branch and used to be super involved. I don't know how they fell through the cracks but I'm glad the Lord led us to them!

Also our investigator Jerry and his son are doing really awesome. We taught them the Word of Wisdom and they didn't question or argue. Jerry was drinking a case of beer a day and just gave that up on the spot. What a miracle! He threw it out and hasn't drank since! He is so awesome. He just wants to follow the Lord. I wish all people were as humble as he is!

I am just loving Dover! It is litteraly such an amazing time to be a missionary. We are right in the middle of the hastening of the Lord's work and you can see it! Even just from the beginning of my mission compared to right now and can see and feel a difference in the work. It is so amazing.

At the same time it is even harder to be a missionary than before. Just as the intensity of the Lord's work is increasing so is Satan's. It is not possible to be a "wishy washy, half in it" type of missionary. Sister Eborn and I gave both talked about how we have to be working harder than we ever have on our missions. Every day it tough. Every day we face challenges but everyday we are seeing the Lord's hand more and more and the miracles are happening more and more often. It is just so amazing! Litteraly if I have any friends that are even just thinking about going on a mission. Just go! It's so amazing! It's one of those things that you can't possibly describe or understand until you have served a mission but just go.

I love all of you so much! Thank you for all of your support!!!
