Called to serve

Dear Family and Friends,

This week was full of doing service! One of our investigators needed help moving so we all gathered the branch together and loaded a u-haul, then we called the missionaries in Belleville and they organized their ward together, and they unloaded it there, so they had movers on both ends! It was super last minute, but worked very smoothly. The church is awesome. :) We also did some yard work for some members in our ward. It is fun to put jeans on once in awhile and work! 

We are teaching some amazing people right now. We met Louis a few weeks ago coming out of the post office. We had a lesson with him this past week, and he is SO prepared. As he was telling us about his life it was just so obvious that everything in his life has led him to this point. Becky is getting baptized soon, and she is so excited! We are very happy for her. She is incredible. We are working with a part member family right now, and we are hoping to set a baptismal date with them this week. 

This transfer is almost over, it is hard to believe it has gone by so fast. I love this area. 

Here are some great moments that happened this week:

After an awesome day:

Sister Tonnies: This is what happens when we fast...I'm never eating again. 

Just some random conversation about hitting pedestrians:

Sister Tonnies: I always thought it was a joke when we would say "10 points if you hit that person" until I read the Utah Driver Handbook...did you know you actually get points for hitting people?! It's like golf, so the points are bad, but it's 10 points for a pedestrian and 20 for a bicyclist!

During Companionship study:

Me: I was reading Isaiah and I accidentally understood it! 
...I mean actually...

Speaking of Isaiah, we had a great moment that happened this week. We were getting ready to go knock on a door of a former investigator. As we were sitting in the car a teenager came out of a house and started walking towards us. He came up to our car and knocked on the window. We rolled it down kind of confused and suddenly we could see the awkward written on his face. He thought we were his friends picking him up for a bonfire he was getting ready to go to. Haha...so we talked to him for a minute and told him who we are. He told us he is atheist because of some things that have happened in the past. His name is Isaiah, and we will be going back to see him sometime. There are no coincidences!! And, he wasn't even the person we were planning on visiting. It was pretty funny, but also a really cool experience. 

I love you all! Have a great week. :)

Love, Sister Furniss 
See, there really is a wall up between the sisters and elders!
