Amazing Days!

Hey Everyone!  This week has been awesome!  We've had sooo many miracles!!  We have two new people that are interested in learning more about the church!  Its awesome.  One girl is in high school and the other girl and her family are interested as well.

Isn't it crazy I've been out for almost a month now!

We also got our car taken away this last week and started riding our bikes.  That's been a little crazy.  So this last Tuesday we had a district meeting.  This is where we meet up as a district and train and talk with all the missionaries in the area that we are serving in.  After the meeting, we as a district go out for lunch.  Since we didn't have the car, we were planning on having a member pick us up.  Well guess what?  We forgot her phone number at the apartment.  So we ended up walking about  2 miles back to the church and calling another member to pick us up.  The first person that planned on picking us up, also forgot our number and ended up calling us when she got home.  Awesome adventure, right?

This last Wednesday we had Zone Conference, its was an even bigger group.  We got together trained, learned and motivated.  We talked a lot about obedience and faith.  IT WAS AWESOME!!
Thursday is when the miracles started happening.  So we get up and go about our daily routines.  Wake up, exercise, get ready for the day, have personal and companion study and then training.  We are finally able to start the day by going out and contacting people.  We go to a house that we think is someone that is possibly interested because of the missionaries before us had given us his name.  Well no one's home.  So we go back for lunch and then go out and work again.  We had a feeling that we should go back to that house that we had gone by previously and there was a car there!  So we knock on the door.  It was girl, she looked about 11th grade.  We asked if this guy that we had thought lived there was there.  She said no.  So we told her who we were and what we believed.  She asked if we would be interested in learning more and she said yes!!!  We teach her outside just a few principles.  Her parents came home, and they spoke little English, so we had her translate and they said they would also be interested in learning more!  We talked with the Spanish Elders and they're going to help us out with teaching the parents.  We went through out the day, sweating and keeping high hopes and high faith that we would find someone else.  Next thing you know, we meet another girl while going see a family in the ward.  She has a REAALLY awesome name, but unfortunately I have to keep it confidential.  Her sisters were already involved in church so she knew a little about the church but she had never gone. We asked her if she wanted to learn more, and she said yes as well!  She was a little unsure in the beginning and had some questions but luckily we were able to answer them!

Funny story, so we were talking to people at a bus stop and we were just telling them who we were and what we believed.... and this guy was talking to Sister Collins, and said " That was beautiful and you're beautiful"  Hahaha.  So she continues to testify, and he goes "Do you like me? Cuz I like you!" Hahahaha.  Sister Collins is like "... Uhhh, I'm on a mission."

So yeah, that pretty much sums up the week... IT WAS GREAT!! (: 

Hope you all are doing well!  Thank you to those of you that are writing me and are praying for me.  I have been able to see the blessing that have come.  I miss you all and hope to hear from you soon!
