So Long Alex City

Hello!!! 

I am leaving Alex City!!! So weird. I have been here for a good minute and I have come to love love love it. I really have. So it is bitter sweet. Idk what a new area will be like...but I'm just going to take it all in and trust in Heavenly Father.

HIGHLIGHTS: 

On the 4th the town was having a big firework festival. Wherever the people are..we will be there! When we got there we were able to see one of our investigators Kathlene (who we havent seen in almost 2 months). When she saw us she was so happy. She grabbed us by the arms and brought us to her family. She said...ya'll need to listen to these girls. They don't judge and we will be going to their church this Sunday. All of us. HAHAHA 

Danielle was able to go to the temple. It was a struggle going...lots of opposition BUT we were able to go, and it was such a special experience. The Lord provided a way!

We were going through our area book and saw a woman named Cindy. The description said that Cindy LOVED the missionaries so we gave her a call. She didn't answer. We decided to go to Walmart and talk to people. Sister McCreath commented on a woman's hair and told her it was cute. The woman turned around and said "Oh my goodness! It's the church girls!" She told us her name was Cindy....it was the same Cindy!!!! We are going to go see her soon. 

The Branch had a BBQ. We went HAM when inviting people. We invited everyone. Only one investigator came. She was the least likely person we thought would show up. It was Sandra Grubbs (the woman we were able to do service for once, and whose husband passed away 9 months ago) She came and all the members were SO kind to her. Now all the members want to go minister to her and Sandra needs that..she needs friends. It ended up being perfect and we were so grateful she came. 

We went to Joy's house (the one we ran into while tracting). She fed us and then afterwords expressed to us how badly she wants to be baptized. She has so much potential it's insane. 

I know Jesus Christ is our Redeemer! I love Him! I know this is His church. 

Love, 
Sister Packard 

PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET BABY BRO ERICO!!!! I LOVE YOU!
