This week was great! On Wednesday, Sister W and I gave a training at the Follow Up Training Meeting for all of the new missionaries and their trainers! It was really good!
We gave a training on Unity.
Thursday we did a Mormon.org lemonade stand near the Millwoods Library. It was such a cool experience! We had Relief Society Sisters there with us and we gave away lemonade, cookies, and copies of The Book of Mormon. We were able to talk to so many people! The members were able to testify to strangers about how the Book of Mormon has helped them. We gave away 25 copies of the Book of Mormon! It was a fabulous day/2 hours!
Thursday evening we had exchanges with the Southgate Sisters. I went to Southgate with Sister V V! They don't have a car so it was so fun to walk around and use the buses all day! I loved it!!
Saturday we had a Ward Potluck that the ward mission was in charge of. Sister W and I were in charge of the game where you hang donuts on a string and they have to eat it without using their hands. It was so fun to watch all the kids and adults try and eat it!
And Monday..we had an interesting experience. We received a media referral for a lady named K. She called the temple a little while ago and asked to meet with missionaries. So we drove to her apartment buiding yesterday and texted her telling her we were there. she told us that she was on her porch looking for us but we did not see her. After standing outside for like 15 minutes looking for her in a sketchy neighborhood on a dark and rainy night, she finally appeared and she threw us down her key to get into the building because she didn't want to leave her apartment. She house was basically empty except for a few boxes and a kitchen table. We sat there for an hour and a half listening to her life story which included everything from her childhood, her life of the streets, her current love interest, her past sins, her repentance story, and her experiences baptizing her grandchildren into her own church..and that only scratches the surface..After an hour and a half she finally took a breath and we interrupted her by saying we had to be home. It was quite an entertaining night. We have an appointment to go to her house next week. So I will let you know how it goes and if we get any teaching in.
Love, Sister Burton xoxo
