More Than Maybe

HA! This week was amazing! So many things happened!!! On Tuesday we had exchanges! I loved it.  At one of our lessons a dog stole Sister Perrin's and my shoes! When we finished the lesson and went to put them on they were out lying in the garden!!! So funny! I laughed so hard.

Then I lost one of my earrings in the other sisters' car. Sad because they were my fave ones and it was tiny!   So Wednesday night I was praying and I lifted up my blanket while I was still on my knees.. boom... there lying in my bed was the earring!!!! It must've gotten stuck in my shirt or something and fallen out while I was sleeping. So it fell into my shirt and not the abyss of the car seat!
She's still cutting her hair!!!


We taught 27 lessons this week and met 2 new investigators!
We got Bible bashed! It was so great! Nothing he said made sense, and I actually used one of the scriptures he used to disprove something, to PROVE the exact same point in my talk on Sunday! Context is everything my friends.  When we use the scripture in the correct context, ie. what it's actually talking about in the story... it makes perfect sense, and actually was just the thing I needed for my talk. Thanks Satan, you idiot!!

So... what are my two least favourite things?!

That's right!! Speaking in public and Being Late!! So let's combine those two things and you have my Sunday morning!   15 minutes late for Sacrament meeting because we went with a member to pick up an investigator, who is super old, and she still was curling her hair when we got there.
 But it was a good day. I got to do the short talk... 15 minutes!!!!!!!!! Agh! haha  Terrifying!

We had a baptism on Saturday. A little girl, who is friends with a member and comes to church every week with their family, was baptised! I was so happy for her. She's great! It was an amazing day! Besides the baptism on Saturday, we did 1.5 hrs of service and taught 8 lessons and got home at 8 pm. It was a full and amazing day!! Loved it!!!

Baptism :)

 We had dinner at the the Winklers after church.  They've had a door that sticks for a while...I finally decided to look at see what the deal was. As I was coming out of the bathroom I asked Brother Winkler for a screw driver... he had the same thought because he pulled out from behind his back a sweet drill! Nice!! POWER TOOLS!!

Happy days! So we got to fixin' the door...
Jesus did service on Sundays. It's all good!
Couple'a newly drilled holes, plugs and big fat wood screws... door fixed.

Me happy.  I miss doing that kinda stuff! I'm so glad I grew up with the best Dad in the world who actually taught me to do that stuff, and let me!  I enjoy it way too much!

So yesterday I read this scripture... I'd seen and read it before and even highlighted it as a teenager but I never fully knew what it meant...
Hebrews chapter 11:1

Just think about that for a second.
"The EVIDENCE of things not seen"
When we have faith it's because the Holy Ghost has revealed to us the truthfulness of those things that we have faith in.... so faith is not hoping for things we have no evidence to prove.  Faith is EVIDENCE of the things we can't see.

Do you get it?!


My Faith in the Saviour is evidence that He is and that He died for me.  I can't pretend it's just a "maybe" just because I haven't seen Him.


I hope you know.

I hope you all have a great week! I Love you all
