Helping at the Home and Garden Show!

Ya' ta' hey!
This week has been a lot better than last week was! I'm a lot more adjusted and feel so much love for and from the ward here!

We started off the week with exchanges. I got to go back to Farmington for the day on Tuesday with Sister Wanberg! She is a really great missionary and I had a lot of fun with her. 

Wednesday we were able to sing at the community connections (an old folks home for those with mental and physical disabilities) we get to sing fun songs like the Hokey-Poky and Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree! 
We met with Jerry (a less active). He is the sweetest man and I have confidence that he'll get active again! We were also able to get a new investigator named Austin! He is agnostic, but is open to learning so we are excited to keep meeting with him!

Thursday after district meeting we were able to do some family history and I have really grown to love it on my mission. Its hard to just be able to do it for an hour!

We had dinner with a wonderful family named the Barnhursts and on our way back to the truck we had the opportunity to talk to this young lady named Katy. Her and her husband and 2 kids just moved from Texas and are actually looking for a church to go to!!! We didn't have the opportunity to share much of a message with them because they didn't have much time, but we left them with a Book of Mormon, A plan of salvation pamphlet and a pass-along card with our phone number on it. We feel that they have a lot of potential and are excited to try them again this week! #talktoeveryone!

Friday, we found out that one of our fellow sister missionaries had to go to the hospital! She had a cyst the size of a grapefruit....She went into surgery immediately! The doctors say that if she hadn't gone in that day that she would have been dead the next! Talk about a miracle! Unfortunately she's going to have to go home to recover for about 3 weeks! But she'll be back! 

There was a big event here in Cortez called The Home and Garden Show. There were people with booths selling things. It is kinda like a flea market. All the missionaries in Cortez took turns serving at it. Basically we walked around and asked anyone if they needed help. We met some guys who were selling these electronic message simulators and were giving people free trial runs of them. These men were pretty flirty, but we gave them a Book of Mormon and invited them to church. Apparently one of them asked the other sisters for a Book of Mormon after we left, because he didn't get one and wanted one!

Saturday we visited the sister in the hospital as a district! Sister Garner and I bought her a really cute shirt at one of the booths at the home and Garden show, just to show our love for her! That night we had a lesson with a recent convert named Tanner! I love him already! He's just soooo good! 

Sunday I was able to officially meet the ward (since last week was General Conference). I love the ward already!
Also Nichelle (an investigator), her kids and her boyfriend Brandyn made it to church yesterday!

I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!
Sister Brown
