Incredible week!

My week was incredible and full of miracles! Last Monday was good. I got to spend it with Sister Summers. Tuesday Sister Carnahan and I  had a lesson with an investigator today and she told us she wants to get baptized. We told her that she has to have all the lessons and then she can be baptized. Unfortunately she didn't know about the word of wisdom yet so we were scared to teach her that. Wednesday was a day that I really have no idea what happened. Our plans just didn't work out and we had no idea where we were supposed to be. Luckily we got through it. Thursday we had weekly planning and we also did some service at Hannah's Treasure Chest ( speaking of Hannah's if you add them on facebook you will see a picture of me on their website). Then we went and saw one of our investigators who just seems to like us because we help her. She doesn't want to progress too much but she did come to church. We have been really blessed to have dinner with a member almost every day this week. It was really nice. Friday.... I don't even know where to start. Sister Carnahan and I had a rough day.... Anyway, we ended up resolving our concerns and figured things out and it has been better. Everything will work out. Saturday.... The best day ever but Satan really tried hard!
Saturday... So we went to the church early to get ready for the baptism. We wanted to meet the Njies there at 9 so they could all get ready and everything. Well, at 9:15 Sister Njie texts us and tells us her car isn't working. That is when we started freaking out. Opposition in all things! For real! We then got another text from Sister Njie telling us to help her! She didn't know what she was going to do. Luckily, someone was cleaning the church and we asked her if she would be so kind as to go with us and pick up the boys. It was only because of God's grace! She was so nice and went with us to pick up the boys. We all piled in her van. (8 of us but they are big boys) it was eventful. But everything worked out. The baptism was soooo powerful!!!!! Everyone came up to us after and said how great it was. It was amazing!!! Sister Njie and her family were crying the whole time and they thanked us so much. Sister Njie's friend ended up having to pick her up for the baptism. It was soooo incredible! I don't even know how to explain it. Only through God was it all possible. After the baptism we went and helped the young woman leader clean out her goat stall. We are going to be helping her more this week too. Then, Miracle number.... 100 we had a lesson with our other investigator and taught her the Word of Wisdom and she accepted it and now is working on not drinking coffee. She still wants to get baptized. This week was a trial of my faith but everything worked out! Also later Saturday night I got a text from an investigator that Sister Savage and I found and her name is DeAnn and she told me that she got baptized!!! I was the one that found her and helped her come back to the missionaries. Really again... God's grace!!!! Sunday the boys got confirmed and it was again powerful.  What a great week.
