Thanks for the updates and love this week. My condolences, love and prayers go out to the Heaps. She'll live again.
This last week was great. We had a huge miracle on Wednesday night. We were on our way back from a baptismal interview we had in Olmstead (I was translating for President). By the time we got out of the interview and President dropped us off at the subway station it was pretty late. On the subway after getting ignored or rejected by a couple people we were just standing there on the train when this young man gets on and stands right next to us. We felt a prompting that this man wanted to talk to us, so we started talking to him about why he was dressed up. Unfortunately, just as we started talking about being ministers for our church, we got to the train station and he was gone. Somewhat disappointed, we started heading up to the street. As we got to the top of a flight of stairs we noticed him walking really slowly and looking backwards for someone. He saw us and waved us down and said " I know you guys are good guys. When I got on that train I felt a peace that I can't really describe". We told him that we had a special message to share with him about how God speaks to man on earth and he excitedly gave us his contact info. It was a super cool experience.
We were assigned to help for a wedding going on in our YSA Ward. The bride went to Mountain View so there were bound to be some people who knew some people there. That's where I met the husband of one of the bridesmaids who knew Matt in high school. I have a video at the venue for you, Mom.
Also this weekend there was another Sister baptized into our Ward. It was awesome. There are some really great things happening here in Manhattan.
Today is my last full Pday. Starting next week they are changing Pday back to Wednesday. We will have a couple hours on Monday to get some things done so... This is going to be my last full email home. At least we had a great day today though. President invited us to come golfing with him and the Assistants. It's been almost 2 years since I have swung a golf club, I was a little rusty, haha, but so was everyone else.
Looking forward to seeing you soon! Love you.
