Well this has been a crazy week. Like really, both me and Sr. Hafen on Sunday night sat back and were like "We just got tons and tons of miracles". So great.
We found people, like lots of people, it was just really great. So there are a lot of stories that I could tell, i'm not sure which one to choose.
Okay, so the one that really hit me home was a member called us and he had a friend who wanted to me with us. Her name was Sr. Stehlie and she had met the missionaries 10 years ago and wasn't interested, but now she is. Which was a miracle that someone was looking for us and not the other way around. So we got a RDV with her at the church, and we gave her a tour and then had a lesson in the chapel with Fr. Foucher. And it was really great, she was just this cute old lady whose husband has died. And when she found out about relief society she wanted to know if they would let her in. It was adorable. And the icing on the cake, during the lesson I asked a question, and her reply (but in French of course) "I don't know, but I do know that I feel less sad". Huge smile from this little missionary, that's the spirit for you. It is really wonderful when you get to see someone feeling and recognizing the spirit for the first time. You could tell it was hitting her.
Another one. We were contacting in this neighborhood and were talking to a lady who wasn't interested but let us come and drink some water, she mentioned she worked for Huntsman, and I was like 'oh we have members that work there, do you know them?' And she said yes, and then she was like ' you have some members that live just down the street'. So when we left we went out on a voyage to find these members that I have not yet visited. So i'm creepy walking down the street reading everyone's mailbox names and I hear a ' who are you looking for?' Turn around and it was Fr. Storti. Hilarious. I looked like a creeper, and of course my companion didn't know who he was yet. Anywho so he invites us in and we walk in and his wife is like "we are making crepes and you can eat with us, but first you have to go to the man across the street and talk to him. We have invited him to church, and we have been hoping you guys would come' so we were like okay. Walked right out the door and went and talked to the man. And man, he was ready. He even asked the question 'how do you know which church is true'. Seriously. I didn't think anybody asked that question. And he said that his wife is really closed, but that they had dinner with the Storti's and after that his wife became interested. It was AWESOME!!!
AND the cherry on top of the cake, a woman who has been taking lessons from the Missionaries for 6 years and never come to church, came!! So sweet you guys.
Sorry this was quickly written, I didn't want to run out of time. But there are just a few of the miracles that went down in Mulhouse this past week!! Awesome week.
Love you all!! Keep going strong!! Obedience brings miracles!
Love, Soeur Jackson!
