One Month as a Missionary

This week was great! I had fun, learned a lot, and taught amazing people, of course, that is the life of a missionary!
The beginning of the week was a little slow, nothing spectacular happened, but then we were able to get into the home of a less-active/part-member family that we have been trying to contact since I got here, so that was great! They were really nice, we are hoping that we will be able to continue meeting with them.
On Wednesday and Thursday I was in Owasso with Sister E on exchanges. Sister E is great! She is a powerhouse, I learned so much from her! On Wednesday morning Sister Shumway (the mission president's wife) was also doing exchanges with us. While she was there, we taught this amazing investigator that the Owasso Sisters are teaching. Sister Shumway was amazing and said a lot of really great things. She was worried that she said too much, but she had a really good impact on the investigator and Sister Shumway was able to help her a lot. We had dinner with that investigator and her family. Her son is a convert, he was baptized when he was 14, he's 17 or 18 now and he just finished his mission papers! Woohoo!! MORE MISSIONARIES!
On Friday we did more exchanges. This time I was in Supulpa with Sister . Neither of us can drive, so we got rides from people, which was kind of neat. I know the Sister that gave us a ride was excited to be out with the missionaries all day. She dropped us off at their apartment for dinner, so we ate and then waited for the ride that was supposed to take us back to meet our companions (exchanges are usually overnight, but this has been just a day exchange).
I guess when they told her (the Sister giving us a ride) the plan there was a little misunderstanding. About half an hour after she was supposed to pick us up we gave her a call to see where she was, and she said that she was at the church that we were meeting our companions at! It was like half an hour away and we weren't sure what to do! She ended up driving back to Owasso, picking us up, and then driving back to meet our companions. I felt so bad!! It was kind of funny though, when Sister G and I realized what had happened we were laughing pretty hard.
Saturday was Zone Training, which was awesome! I was able to learn a lot! I did a musical number with two other Sisters, and three Elders, it was the EFY medley, it was pretty good even though we didn't have an opportunity to practice. They also asked me to bear my testimony. We found out that Tad R. Callister was going to come and speak to us, the cool thing is that it isn't for a mission tour, he just called President Shumway because he realized he hadn't been to the OTM yet, and asked when would be a good time to come and talk to us!
Yesterday was a really good day. At first we were a little bummed because one of our investigators wasn't at church. After Relief Society we grabbed an extra hand out for her and decided to go drop it by her house. When we got there she was telling us how she spent all day cleaning the house because her husband and kids had gone out of town (she had to work the day before so she wasn't able to go with them), and she wanted them to come home to a clean house. They are in the middle of some remodeling so the house had been a little disorganized for a while. We were able to help her with a couple of things that she didn't think she was going to have time to get to. She was so grateful and excited that we thought of her. We were happy that we had listened to the prompting to go see her so we could help her out!!
I know that Heavenly Father doesn't give us promptings that we can ignore, we need to listen to all of them! We get them for a reason and Heavenly Father really needs us to follow them!!
I hope you all had an amazing week, and a happy Valentine’s Day, Have a wonderful week! Remember that I love you all!
