Onward, Ever Awkward

We had a huge transfer this week. Sister Call was moved to train and reopen an area in Omaha *I only cried twice* This Sister Nelson she is training is one lucky Sister Missionary to be trained by my S. Call. Guess what?! Do you remember THIS SISTER?!

Well this is sister Smith from Fresno California, standing at 5' 7", weighing in at 273lbs (minus 200). She is a Math education major at BYU provo. AND BOY DO I LOVE HER. 
If you don't remember who she is, we were in the very same MTC district. We were roomies in the MTC and basically we are the same person. It is actually really scary how much alike we are. Also, do you remember Elder Tatafu from Columbus? Well he is now our Zone Leader... crazy stuff going on here. S. Smith is a new sister training leader so I am privileged to show her the ropes. We are going to see so many miracles this transfer! 

Saturday was the receptions of some of the YSA people so we went to that! this man, Jacob just got back from his mission in Alaska 8 months ago, already married! We walked in and we gave April a hug, the bride and then Jake went in for a hug and I FROZE! he was just giving me a hard time. Turns out he knows a bunch of the elders who were in our Zone at the MTC. Small world eh?

We had a super miracle after the reception. We were trying to decide if we should go finish weekly planning or go see people and I felt strongly to go see Mindi Gray. Well we went and no answer. As we were walking back to the car I said, "I think all we need to be a star companionship (no 0s in key indicators) is a new investigator and gator at church. Then I get in the car and start talking to myself about how we're going to do this as S smith is backing me up. Well, I see that she is talking to someone and motions for me to get out of the car so I do. Levi asked if she was looking for someone and if he could help. The spirit definitely prompted him to approach us. We ended up talking for a while. We taught him about the Family Proc and invited him to take the lessons. He said yes and we prayed with him. 1 new investigator! We have a lesson with him tonight :) 

I got a blessing this week that said how when I get home I will be able to tell cool stories about the weather and fireflies.....Bishop didn't even know I loved the storms or fireflies here! Heavenly Father just knows me oh so well :)

I love you all! Have the best week ever! 

Love Always, Sister Dumont :)
