NINETEEN

Dear friends and family,

Hey y'all! Okay, so where is the time going?? I am shocked at how fast the days are flying by. These last couple weeks have just been a blur.

So the only appointments that we really have as missionaries are appointments through video calls with members and people we're teaching. We aren't actively teaching anyone here, so when we initially went into self isolation, we very quickly ran out of things to do. We got pretty discouraged.

Well, in zone conference a couple weeks ago, we received multiple trainings from our Mission President and other missionaries about how to work with members during this crazy time. Sister Yellowhair and I took it to heart and we gave it a shot.

Y'all.

The week before we changed how we were doing things, we had six appointments total. SIX. And three of those were on a Sunday. And then, when we obeyed the counsel of our leaders, we had NINETEEN lessons in one week. NINETEEN!!!

It was truly a miracle.

The reason I feel the need to talk about this isn't just because it was wayyy cool that it worked out that way (even though, it WAS way cool) but because when we follow the guidance given to us by our church leaders we WILL be blessed, and we WILL be happier and closer to God because of it. I am so thankful for the guidance of modern day prophets and apostles, and the strength that I gain from their words. The commandments and policies of The Church of Jesus Christ ARE inspired and of God. I promise that if we follow our prophet's counsel that we will be blessed beyond anything imaginable!!!

Anywaysss, besides all that, we've been keeping busy doing some art, going on walks to social-distance chat with the other sister missionaries in our apartment complex, having mini dance parties, and making videos for our Facebook page.

Honestly, things aren't ideal right now for sure... but I am happy. I feel so blessed.

Love y'all! Have a great week!

Love,

Sister Arnett
