Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes and for the many birthday memes that I received. It was a really great day and I'm really feeling 22. Also thanks mom so much for the birthday package I really loved it all. The iPad case it's just great and I love the book and I bought two new pairs of shoes today so that was awesome. Sorry this is taking me a little bit to get to you, but we went hiking today, so I finally have some time. This week has been really great we found six new investigators. They are all pretty awesome so we will see how they progress. Jeffrey hasn't committed to anything. So we are still working on that. We also haven't been able to contact Shay so that's been discouraging. We finally met her at her apartment and she seemed to have a lot of reservations and didn't want to talk to us. We aren't sure what happened but we will keep working hard. The field is white already to harvest. We were tracking the other day and this guy came up to us and said are you taking me to church tomorrow? We were super confused and finally he said that the city Bible has a bus and they just pick people up for church. We talked to him some more and he said that we could come back the next day to teach him. It was super awesome, his name is Chris, and he has a little girl named Riley. The lesson went really well and the spirit was super strong. He wasn't quite sure about Joseph Smith but he had a sincere desire to know. So that's what really counts. Super awesome guy loves the Bible and is looking for God more in his life. We are excited to see what comes of this. The other Chris is MIA we have no idea where he's at. So we just keep trying to call him and pray for him. His fellow-shippers know where he's at and said he will contact us in a few weeks. And he still wants to be baptized but we have to meet with him for that to happen. Also we got a referral today and the description said I want to take the lessons so I can be baptized. So we are super pumped about that! We are just seeing so many miracles here and it's been really great. They are from meeting super cool people to making appointments to finding the elect. Missionary work is seriously amazing. It's hard. But the hardest best thing I've ever been a part of. We are now in the Gresham zone. Which means we have a new district leader and a new district and Amazon. They are super cool though and we all went hiking today. We went to horse tail falls the one that we went to a long time ago on that Old Highway by Multnomah Falls. It was way fun and I'll send you some pictures. We were hiking back to the car and I was talking to my companion and apparently I just lost sight of my feet. And then I went down the cliff and this couple behind me ran and grabbed me arms to keep me from falling more. So that was fun. Then we caught up with the elders and I was crying and shaking and my leg is all bruised and beat up. But no worries I am alive 😀 I have been studying a lot in Alma and in the war chapters. I have been so impressed on how Moroni supported his people in God. He fortified them and always told them to look to Christ for their support and deliverance. This world is hard, and we have to fortify ourselves against Satan. He will have as much power over him that we let him have. So we have to build our foundation on Christ. And we do that by doing the dailies. Daily prayer and scripture study. As well as following the commandments and keeping the Sabbath day holy. There is no time to waste. He gospel is hopeful and brings the most joy in our lives. I just love it. I love you all so much and feel your prayers give me strength. Have a wonderful week! Sister Stephens.
