Hello family!!First off, being a missionary is absolutely fantastic. I love it!!! Second, I see so many miracles EVERY DAY and every minute. I absolutely love it!!! I feel like I have so much to tell you guys, but not nearly enough time! So one day this week, Sister Carlin and I were having a rough day. All of our appointments fell through and none of our backups were home. So we decided to go see a former investigator that the elders a few transfers ago met. On the way to his house we saw a car with the trunk wide open and so we went and knocked on the door. A lady opened the door and yelled for her son to go take care of it. Come to find out, She was a preacher but her son was SUPER interested in reading the Book of Mormon and there would have been no other way to talk to him without his mom there. It was such a miracle. THEN, we were on our way somewhere else and what do you know?! THERE WAS ANOTHER TRUNK OPEN!!! Sister Carlin and I were shocked...God definitely has a sense of humor! We were able to talk to that man too! And he actually has family that is LDS! So crazy!! It made our day.
