This week was good! Some interesting and good things happened.
Cornel is getting married!! :) So, that's exciting.
We finally saw Anna- a less active who has been having a plethora of health problems. I love her. I feel like I we just clicked together, like we had been friends for a long time already. Those kinds of people help me to know I am in the right place. :) She has a herniated disc in her back, so please keep her in your prayers.
Sharelle fed us on our usual Tuesday appointment! She is such a good cook! She made us steak and salads. She is so sweet. She goes to dialysis Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. She is always cooking for somebody, though. Her new motto for life is, "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we dialysis." haha! See 2 Nephi 28:7
I took a Sudafed type pill because I was still sick. I think it was extra strength, though. I would liken it to taking 7 Benadryl... I took it at 12:30 pm. So, that was an interesting day. :)
We went to see Pam with our Relief Society President and then her home teachers (a stake presidency member and a previous bishop) came at the same time. Oh, man! It was a really good lesson. There were so many people there, though! At least she knows she is well loved. :)
Ivor fed us and Sister Albrecht a feast when we had eaten just an hour before with Sister Higbee. He fed us a whole bunch of meat, which is rather funny because Sister Albrecht is a vegetarian. She ate it anyway. She's a trooper. :) We ate SO MUCH food. It's a miracle we didn't burst at the seams. After we had our February Thanksgiving we went out for the rest of the night with Sister Albrecht on the coldest night ever. We had two days this week that didn't get above 30 degrees, add in wind chill and humidity- It was frigid! Hopefully it gets warmer soon!
I was almost bear hugged by a really big, super drunk guy. However, I found his hand in the air with my hand and gave him a hearty handshake. Haha! :) It will go down in my book as the best avoided hug on my mission. :)
We taught a couple old ladies this week. The lessons went well! They aren't really interested, but hey they felt the spirit! One of them is a lady we have done a bunch of service for. We talked about prophets. She said she could never follow a prophet- Jesus is her ultimate priest. I was so sad for her. She just doesn't know how much this could help her.
Can I just say how much I LOVE the Book of Mormon? It is such a fantastic book of scripture. It relates so much to our day, too! With all the wars, and people not keeping the commandments, and family dramas. If you want to know how to overcome those things or anything you may be questioning, study the Book of Mormon. I know you will find the answers, and even more answers to questions you didn't realize you were asking. It is such a true book.
Have a great week, y'all! I love ya! :)
Love, Sister Broadbent.
