Sister Bolliger - Lemoore Week 66: Setting the Groundwork for Amazing Miracles, Rototiller Fun, Sister Gelwix is a Hit, Baby Shower!

Well, duh duh duhh, I am staying in Lemoore with Sister Croft! This is the first time that I will have had a companion for more than one consecutive transfer! Isn't that insane? I am so excited! We have really set the groundwork here for some amazing miracles and I am excited to see what happens soon!
We were able to do some service for a part-member family this week, and my was it service! We were hacking at 8-foot dandelion weeds with hoes and axes. The brother then mowed the lawn, and then we each had our own rototiller (rotatiller?) hacking up the ground! It was so much fun! No matter that it was in the heat of the day or that I got a beautiful sunburn, it was so fun! It just contributed to my watch tan. Haha. Physical evidence that in fact, my skin does change colors! :)
Our mission president's wife was able to come out with us this week. She came one night around 6 PM and we took her to visit some of our wonderful investigators! She came with us to meet Pattie. Pattie is living with a less-active member and she has been taking the lessons casually. Well, she TOTALLY clicked with SIster Gelwix! She asked if Sister Gelwix would be at our church service on Sunday. Sister Gelwix replied, "I'll be there if you will!" Woo! So, Sister Gelwix drove down from Fresno, and Pattie came to church for the first time! She absolutely loved the "Gospel Principles" manual and thinks that will help her better understand the scriptures.
One of the amazing sisters in our ward is throwing a baby shower for one of the families we're teaching. The husband isn't a member, and his cute wife is due in one month! They're both SUPER young and in the Navy, and so this baby shower is going to be so splendid! Sister Croft and I are both so happy that we're both here to go shopping and help decorate for this shower. We have really grown to love this sweet sister and are so excited for her to feel the loving arms of the ward wrapped around her!

Peace be the Journey,

Hermana Bolliger
