Sister Knaphus

The Tables Have Turned

Hi friends!

This week, we realized that Sister Knaphus has been out for 5 months and has 13 to go. I have been out 13 months and have 5 to go. Woah. Also, she has never taken over an area before and known more about it, and I'm used to being the one who has been in the area longer. Does that even make sense? It's just a weird shift and the tables have literally turned.

Fun fact: Sister K had a graduating class of 9. NINE! I don't remember what mine was but it was def close to 1000. So there's that.

So we are teaching this person named Mindy. She has 6 guinea pigs and the other day she showed us her theremin while wearing a lab coat, Don't know what that is? Look it up. She came to a devotional with us and it was really good. I'll keep ya posted.

We found a guy named Luke this week. We went to visit a returning less-active and her son, Luke, answered the door. We shared some scriptures with him that he really liked and his mom taught part of the restoration. Like, what?! He was super excited to come to church but his friend got in a car accident Sunday morning. His friend is okay and hopefully Luke will come next week!

We also found a guy named Bryan. It was totally great and we taught him on his doorstep (in the dark because he didn't turn a light on until we asked him to like 10 minutes into the conversation) Creepy? Yes. But whatever, it was fine. We had something set up for Thursday but he cancelled it and didn't reschedule so we were kind of disappointed. But then we found a giant yoga ball in our apartment so that lightened the mood. We will reach out to him again and just keep searching for the elect!

Oh my gosh I almost forgot! I got to see a bunch of people from Ferndale 2nd ward (my first area) on Saturday! It was so great to see them! I can't believe I'm back up north, basically where it all started. We also visited an older lady who used to take us out to eat. She is the mother-in-law of Adam, one of my first converts! (She lives in Lynden but attends Ferndale.) I love the relationships you make on a mission!

Just a quote from the Women's Conference on Saturday."If you are feeling lost, abandoned, or forgotten, fear not. The Good Shepard will find you. He will lift you upon His shoulders. And he will carry you home".

Enjoy General Conference this weekend! Love you all!

Sister Knaphus said we are Calvin and Hobbs because she "takes everything too seriously and for me, everything is always happy" Haha. She said I'm Hobbs, the tiger. Oh and the picture with the map is very accurate. I can't read maps.​
