I forgot to write about a miracle that happened last week! As we were planning one night, Sister E was like “Huh. I want to stop by a former investigator. But last time we saw him, he told us not to come visit him anymore.” Usually we listen to people when they request us to stop contacting them, but she couldn’t deny the prompting she felt to visit him. The next day, as we pulled up in front of his house, Sister E felt a bit uneasy. Since he had told her not to come back she felt concerned he’d start hating Mormons, or yell at us or something like that. Well, when we knocked on the door his face lit up. He was so excited to see the missionaries again. He doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to give up drinking, so he felt ashamed to see us which is why he requested us to stop coming by. But he takes care of a man who has later stages of Alzheimer’s. That man is really starting to struggle with his memory. And it just so happens that the day before we stopped by, he asked “So, when are those two missionaries going to stop by again? They haven’t been here in a long time” which is a miracle in and of itself. The man with Alzheimers who barely remembers his own name asked about us the same night that Sister E felt prompted to visit him the next day. His patient asking him about us also inspired him to read from the Book of Mormon that day. Some people might say all that was not a miracle, but I know it was all because of our Heavenly Father. He knows us so well!
Today right after district meeting Alex brought me a CD full of the soundtrack for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and I basically cried hahaha. On the ride home, Sister E and Sister K and I were all jamming out haha. It was so much fun, I was so grateful!
District meeting was great. Pretty crazy that this was my last district meeting with my first district! Every six weeks, the missionaries are assigned to new places and companions to better serve the area, and we call these Transfers. We’ll get called tomorrow to hear about transfers. Sister E and I for sure won’t get transferred. President Weed will be inspired to do what the mission needs! I am both excited and nervous. But change is good.
I love letters, packages and cds of music. Please send them to Sister Jessica Fisher, 1400 E Piccadilly Loop, Apt E, Yorktown, VA 23692.
