So I wanted to share some of the miracles we have seen this week:
The Scotts were out of town for the past 10 days visiting family in Florida. On Friday we got a text from Brother Scott saying "The Scott family is back in town." Later Sister Scott texted us that she was coming to CHURCH on Sunday!!!! I was so excited and she came! She has been to our ward maybe 2 times before but this time quite a few members fellowshipped her and helped her feel welcome! It was wonderful - I love the Buckley 1st members!
During ward council Bishop gave us an assignment to go with some of the high priests to give blessings to a family that requested them. So hopefully this next part isn't confusing. So a member that lived in the Buckley 1st ward moved to Sumner in the summer when I was there and we had helped them move in. I loved the family and I felt like we connected really well. So her Sister B. (the member) has a cousin that is going through a hard time right now. Her aunt is less active member and asked Sister B. to ask Bishop for blessings for the Aunt and her 2 (nonmember) daughters. One of the daughters is a young mom and the other is in law school. We went over with two of the high priests for the blessing Sunday night. Sister B. was at the blessing and it was so good to see her. The family was super sweet and was so grateful we were all there. Before the blessing Brother P. basically taught the Restoration and explained the priesthood. They gave blessings to the Mom and both daughters. The spirit was so strong and the blessings were so beautifully said. Brother P. invited them to meet with us and the daughter that is having this trial in her life said absolutely and wanted to have us over for dinner. It was such a neat experience to be there and we have 2 potential investigators now.
It was such a blessing to have Sister Scott at church and witness those priesthood blessings. I know Heavenly Father is guiding this work and I am so grateful to be part of it.
This week I also got to go on a blitz with Sister Bowman (we came out in the field together) in South Hill. She is one of my STLs and I am so happy about it.
Brother Sterzik also showed us his origami boat collection that consists of 1 million small boats that took him 13 years to complete. It was pretty sweet! Talk about dedication!
