Sister Tebbs is crazy. I love her so much!! Who knew that when we served around each other in London that just a few transfers later we would be companions?! But she goes home next transfer too...6 weeks with her is not enough! I've only adopted the title of "the butcher" or the "slaughterer", so it's fine.
This week was a longggggg one, but it was such a good one! We saw lots of miracles this week.
Like every week.
This week we committed to really going through our 900 list of members (more or less- active) and just go visit them! With that, we "randomly" chose a Zewdu and Mesete. When we got to the building, we were locked out for a few minutes, then when we finally got to his door, no one was home, so we decided to leave a note; as we wrote the note, my pen kept running out of ink, but eventually we finished and turned to leave. Halfway down the hall, we saw a guy at the other end and saw that he was walking right into the apartment we were just at! We called after him and he "happened" to be Zewdu!
Moral of the story: God's timing was perrrrrfect. It always is.
Then last night, we went to visit another less-active and when she answered the door and after talking for about 10 minutes, I realized that we had run into her twin sister a couple weeks before! God is AWARE of this family!
Then Friday, we were walking down the sidewalk and I wasn't planning on stopping these two guys that were going to pass us, but because we talk to EVERYONE, we stopped them and talked to them. They were actually already Christians! We talked for 15 minutes about the Restoration and they are super interested in knowing more!

Yesterday, the YSA branch didn't meet here in Toronto, so we had the opportunity to go to a family ward! Man, I haven't been in a family ward in over a year!! It was kind of refreshing!
Sorry this email is kind of lame. It's hard to put into words the experiences I'm having as a missionary. I love the Lord, I love having a prophet on the earth, I love knowing that God is real and that this life is our time to prepare to meet Him again.
"The happiness...peace...progress, prosperity of the Latter-day Saints, and the eternal salvation and exaltation of this people lie in obedience to the counsels of God."
I love y'all! Make good choices because every single one counts!
