this morning i woke up 15 mins early for sister Crumps birthday and decorated her desk and made her break fast and then suprised her with it:)
so many things happened this week! first offsister Crump and i were knocking on some apartments because this less active lives there but i didnt know what door was hers so we decided just to knock until we found it, 5 doors after knocking we found her! after we gave the lady a message we thought we would knock some more and from that we got 3 potentials one of them being this lady named Dawn. The next day we were at the church all day helping with this funeral and then going to book of mormon class so when came we raced to get over to dawns house but unfortunately Dawn had stood us up so we decided since we had had so much sucess that we would try to knock on some more doors. the first door we knocked on this 19 year old girl named Vanessa answered it and of course we start off by saying how we are and asking if she would like to hear a brief little message about christ and his gospel, and usually people say ya come back later, but Vanessa was like ya! come on in!! hahah sister Crump and i looked at each other and was like ok!!! hahah it was so funny!! we went in and started to get to know her a little bit and we were asking her all of these questions that we usually wouldnt say and she kept asking all of these questions pertaining to the plan of salvation. i kept thinking about how we always teach the restoration of the gospel first but the plan of salvation just kept coming into my head so i pulled out my little thing that i use when i teach lesson two and we taught her the plan of savlation. it was amazing!! she took it all so well and you could feel the spirit so strong!! after we left sister Crump and i couldnt stop freaking out!! vanessa is so prepare and she is so amazing!!
one thing i would love to challange everyone for now on is to everynight get down on your knees and thank god for something that you usually take for granted one thing that you can see that god really helps you out in. and i know as you will do this you will see how much god loves you, how much he cares for each and everyone of you, how much he truly does do for you. i love you all so much! and i know sometimes i take you all for granted but i want you to know that you all do so much for me and i am so happy and grateful that i know all of you! your amazing! keep up the good work with being an example to all of those around you.
love, sister Turpin
