Letter #86 2-29-2016 Gering Nebraska

Hey everyone!!
Well I am staying with my comp in the same area for another transfer. This transfer will be 7 weeks instead of 6 weeks starting Tomorrow. Everyone speaking English will be staying in the MTC 3 weeks now so this transfer is one week longer than the normal 6 week transfer. Sorry for the late letter today we went and hiked the bluffs here which was a lot of fun!!

So this week we did have a miracle happen to us... So we were visiting a less active family, the S_ a great family, they are an older couple, and I expect we will be doing service out at their place sometime this week. But while we were out there a phone call came to our cell phone.  We didn’t pick up but then it came through again, so we asked if we could take it and they said "ya go a head". 

We picked up and it was a lady on the other end. She started to talk to us about how she met with missionary's like 2 years ago and how she was so close to being baptized.   She ended up going through a divorce and the missionaries lost contact with her.  Somehow she got our number and called us and asked if we could meet that day.  We set up the appointment at 2:30 and she was so excited to meet with us. We went to her home and visited with her for a while and just as we were ending the conversation she said, “I want to be baptized what can I do to get there?” We set a date right then and another appointment to meet, and then invited her to church and she came. 
She was participating in the Sunday School class and answering a lot of the questions in one of the classes. It was so great to see someone with such excitement wanting to learn and to know more.

We'll hope all is well and have a great week!! Miss y'all!!
