"The Sisternaries"

I'm doing great! 

Last week was awesome.  The 4th of July was fun! We ate dinner at the bishop's house and went to a party with a bunch of people in the ward. We had to be home at 9, still, so we didn't really get to see any fireworks, but it was still fun! Fireworks are HUGE here. We've been hearing them every night for about a week. It was really fun!

We got sick this week, so we were both in bed for about two days, but other than that, it was good! We also got to go to the temple and have had meetings all week, so that's taken a good chunk of time from teaching and stuff.

Oh! Our ward mission leader has 5 cute kids, and one of them had started calling Sister Huss and I "Sister Harry and Sister Hush, the sisternaries" SO funny! His wife accidentally called Sister Huss Sister Hush the other day.

Something kind of cool happened last week!
Last week we found an investigator when we were walking down the street and Sister Huss randomly wanted to go and knock on a door. So we did and we found an awesome lady who doesn't really practice any particular religion right now. We gave her a BOM, and talked about it and left. Then, this week we had an appointment cancel on us last minute, so we decided that we would go and check up on this lady. It was kind of weird because we had planned to go and see her later in the day, but for some reason we wanted to move her up like 4 hours and go see her right then.

We got to her house, and she came right out and started talking to us. She seemed happy that we were there and everything. Sister Huss and I started teaching about how God loves each of us so much and how Jesus Christ knows exactly what we are going through when we have trails. She started crying and told us about how she had been having a terrible day because of some things that are happening in her life.

As it turns out, the time that we showed up was the only time that day that she would have free time and be able to talk to us.
She kept asking us "How did you know?"
We shared Ether 12:27 with her and she asked, "Ok. Seriously. Did you plan this? HOW did you know?"

We had no plan when we were walking up to her door. We didn't even know if she would be home! This whole thing was such a testament to me that Heavenly Father knows each of us SO well. He knows exactly what we need when we need it and He is so willing to give it to us! All we have to do is ask in faith and act on impressions that we get.
I'm so thankful that I got to play my small part in helping this woman know how much she is loved by our Heavenly Father!
