Chopping Wood and Zone Conference

This week was busy! It was good. We saw many miracles happen. We had 5 less-actives come to church, which was SO awesome! The most I've seen so far! I hope they all had a good experience and will have the desire to come back next Sunday. It's been an adventurous week! Last Monday we actually went hiking up by Vedauwoo (sp?)! Super fun! And then Saturday we went up to the mountains and we helped chop and block firewood for the widows in the Laramie Stake. It was a good time! I am SO sore though! We were up there from 7am to 4pm.
We taught some of our recent converts the Restoration, and it went well! their kid is such a handful though! She drives her mom crazy! We try to stay on the lesson, but it's hard haha. Next week we are going to meet with them later in the evening so that her husband, who is a nonmember, will be there too.
You may remember me telling you about a crazy cat lady that we go and visit once a week? This time we read the next chapter in the BoM (2 Ne. 3) and the spirit was so strong as we talked about it afterwards, because we talked about Joseph smith and the Restoration, and it was so awesome!! She realized the Mormon church was the most correct, so I invited her to church with us and she said she's come and that it would be good to get back into church again!! Woohooooo we were so excited! Unfortunately, we went to pick her up and she chickened out and didn't want to go into the thunderstorms.... So she didn't come :/ but we were close! And we will keep trying!
Another LA finally let us in on Saturday evening, and we went on a walk with her. Her husband is Catholic, and is nice but it seems like he tries to avoid talking to us and wants nothing to do with the Mormon church. But, he actually offered us dinner, which we had already eaten dinner but we couldn't turn him down! It was a miracle! She told us that has NEVER happened with any missionaries, ever. It was huge. He ate in the basement instead of at the table with us, but still! It was a pretty big deal(:
We had Zone Conference (multiple zones) in Fort Collins on Wednesday, which lasted all day, and then we had Zone Meeting here in Laramie with just our zone on Friday. This Friday, all of the missionaries in Wyoming are going to Cheyenne for our mission tour! Which means I will see Sister Martin! YAY!!! I miss her so much! Elder Jorge Zeballos of the Seventy will be there. It's gonna be good!  
I noticed this week that I am the happiest after a lesson where the Spirit was in charge, after seeing the Spirit work in someone and help them to understand the truth of what is being taught. I'm just so grateful to be a part of this marvelous work, and I will strive to give my all to the Lord while I'm out here for a short period of time. Thanks for all you do for me, I love each of you! Study Moses 6:31-34!
