Coral Reef South February 28, 2017

Hi everyone!

I hope this email finds you well, I am doing great! It has been a good week of missionary work! We have not found any new investigators, and not really any potentials either so we have spent a lot of time knocking doors, contacting former investigators, and visiting less-active members. 

Yesterday we saw a cool miracle. We had planned to spend our whole day in a city called "Lakes By the Bay." We had some people to visit over there, but for whatever reason when we had planned our day we had decided to go see Sister Ferro at 3:00. When we looked at what we had next on our agenda, we were confused as to why we had put her right there because she lives about two cities away from Lakes by the Bay, and so to visit her we would have to drive all the way back to this other city, and then return to Lakes by the Bay for the evening. We weren't sure what to do, sooooo....we prayed! That's what we always do. We felt like we should still go see her, even though it would take some extra driving. 

We have visited Sister Ferro in the past, she is from Honduras (so she loves Sister Hernandez). She has some health challenges that make it difficult for her to get out much, and when we have visited her in the past she did not seem interested in coming back to church. Well, by the end of our visit yesterday, we knew that it was Heavenly Father that had put her on our agenda. She needed a visit. Her husband is a member of another faith, and since she can't drive herself, she has been going to church with him. She told us that she has been attacked for her beliefs a lot at the other church, but she still hasn't lost her testimony. She told us that she has been reading from the Book of Mormon everyday, and truly desires to come back to church! We were so glad that we had gone to see her. We shared some scriptures with her, and she loved the visit. 

On Saturday we were both feeling a little off, and pretty discouraged. We were trying to figure out why, and then we realized that it was because we hadn't taken the sacrament for 2 weeks in a row. Sister Hernandez had been sick, and then we had Stake Conference. Sunday was so wonderful to be able to take the sacrament! It made me appreciate what a huge difference it makes. My week has already gone so much better. I know that having the Spirit makes the biggest difference, it is what allows us to feel peace and happiness even during difficult times. 

So, this week is transfers!! I found out last night that I will be staying in Coral Reef and I will be training a new missionary!! I am so excited! I will have more details next week. 

Love, Hermana Monson
