Spring break = NO LIFE FOR MISSIONARIES WITH THE NAMES SISTER HALLMARK AND CHIPMAN BECAUSE THEY'RE IN A YSA AND EVERYONE IS GOING OUT OF TOWN.
So we're off to a good start! Before spring break (aka the devil) hit us, we found 4 new investigators this week! SO many miracles!
So we find most of our investigators by street contacting on grounds of UVA. We just walk around and talk to students. It's way fun! So we ran into this girl Elise, who was super nice, said she was Christian, but still would meet with us. Well, she was leaving for spring break that next day and she was like I probably won't be able to meet until after spring break! But we kept the faith and called her that night anyway just to see if we could meet her before she left that next day. We called and left her a voicemail, and no response. That next morning, we were having companion study and we decided to text her and maybe she would respond to that. WELL SHE DID. She was like yeah sorry I forgot to call y'all back! My plans changed and I won't be leaving until tomorrow, so we can meet today if you want. Also my friend would like to come, if that's okay. IF THAT'S OKAY? IF THAT'S OKAY?! OF COURSE THAT'S OKAY! THAT'S FANTASTIC! We almost peed our pants with excitement! Then we asked what time would work best and she said that they would like to take us out to dinner! I was like IS THIS REAL?! Is this really happening right now?! So we met them at Cook Out and talked forever about their families and stuff, they were SO nice!!! They were mega Christians though, so we subtly started teaching the restoration. Hehe. It went wonderfully! And when my companion invited them to be baptized, they accepted!! We're meeting with them after spring break, so needless to say, we're a little excited to meet with them again!
The same thing happen that week! We had an appointment with a new investigator and he brought his friend! It was so amazing!
I KNOW the Book of Mormon is the word of God! Read it! Everyday! Alma 13:20. I'm soooooo happy to be on a mission! It is the BEST! I know this is where I'm supposed to be!
Oh yeah! We visited Thomas Jefferson's house today! It was soooooo coool!!:)
Love y'all! Tchau,
