Learning to rely on Heavenly Father! -- Week 16

Hello Everyone!

It's been another lovely week here in the land of Georgetown/Acton/Brampton/Glenwilliams/etc....

Well, this week was great! We found 15 new investigators. (I honestly don't know how. It's unheard of....) It's crazy because Sister Anthony and I are both so new to the mission. We have no idea what to do with these people, but we sure are trying. But one day we tracted for 5 hours in a row and knocked 106 doors and we found 4 new investigators that day! It's cool; as a missionary you learn how to speak with the Spirit. You start to learn the way to phrase things at the door so that people will understand your message. You learn to find out what interests people right when you see them, and how to approach certain people. You learn how to stay motivated and happy even when you've been on your feet for forever. You learn how to help people see you are passionate about the message you share. You learn how to use your body language, tone of voice, and facial expressions to outwardly demonstrate your inward emotions and thoughts. You learn how to rely on Heavenly Father. You learn to pray even in the middle of a conversation. You start to talk to God randomly cuz you have no one else to talk to. You learn to teach VERY SIMPLY. To the point that you feel dumb. But people understand. You learn how to always pull the conversation back to the message that you share.......you learn how to answer ever question using the Book of Mormon. It's crazy. 

The other day we ran into some doors sales men who were so impressed with us that they asked us to come and demonstrate our message to their entire staff at their company. WHAT A HUGE OPPORTUNITY! And another guy asked us to come do motivational speaking at his fundraiser. It's so cool. I've learned so much. I've grown so much. The way I talk and think is different. They way I interpret peoples emotions and sentences has changed. It's crazy.

Anyway, I honestly don't have much to say this week. I'm just super tired! I hope everyone back home is safe and happy. I love you all!
