Alma 26: 35-36...

Guess what?! I'm here for another six weeks in South Port! I am just incredibly happy with it, and I'm also very aware that is it pure inspiration that I'm here another six weeks! The things that are happening here in South Port just surprise me every day, and increases my testimony that Heavenly Father is even aware of me and Sister Hall in this little seaside town of South Port. I'm grateful I get to know the members, area, and the wonderful people we're teaching even more. This past week flew, yet again. Also we had four seasons just about every day! But through it all, we've seen so much progress. The biggest thing that has changed me this week is that when we plan, we only plan what we know, and Heavenly Father takes care of the details. So basically on Friday night, we sat down to plan, and had 4 hours to find. We were thinking and thinking where to go, and couldn't figure it out. So we knelt down, and asked God. When we did, we just felt like we should go to Walnut Street. The next morning I forgot that I needed to renew my bus pass, so that put a dent in our plans, but we just went with it. We started to walk to town to get my bus pass and it took us an hour to get there (usually is a 10 minute walk) because of the many people we talked to and were actually listening. Then after we got my bus pass, we decided we could just walk to Walnut street. As we walked, and talked to everyone we saw, it took us another hour and a half (should've taken 20 minutes) because of the amazing people we ran into! Me and Sister Hall were just in complete shock that we hadn't gotten a solid 'no' all day! That NEVER happens! We then realized that is was because we as humans, can only do so much. Heavenly Father couldn't have us plan and let us know where we need to be every minute of the day because it would be too much! But just by the Lord inspiring us to go to Walnut street, and me forgetting about my bus pass, that he was able to have us in the EXACT spot and the EXACT moment those people would walk by. I know that Heavenly Father is very aware of us, every single one of us! I know that by being diligent and obedient, that He has to bless us! the best part is that the same exact thing happened on Sunday with the soon to be mom. I just am so EXCITED! I'm so sorry this is all over the place, my brain is all over the place. But I'm happy. I love this work. I love learning to completely hand over my will to the Father.

I hope that you will remember to say your prayers! I love you all!

also this is Alma (a book in the Book of Mormon. Alma was a prophet!)

35 Now have we not reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began; yea, and my joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things, and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will repent and believe on his name.

36 Now if this is boasting, even so will I boast; for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation, and my redemption from everlasting wo. Yea, blessed is the name of my God, who has been mindful of this people, who are a branch of the tree of Israel, and has been lost from its body in a strange land; yea, I say, blessed be the name of my God, who has been mindful of us, wanderers in a strange land.
