Rainy Day out fit!
Hey Everyone,
There's kind of a lot of stories I wanted to share this week. As the weather begins to cool off it's much more pleasant leaving our apartment and honestly, every time we have gone outside this week, seriously every day, God leads us somewhere we didn't expect to go and amazing things happened. 

I'm just going to share a few of my favorites: first, on Thursday we went to the hospital nearby our house where two of our elderly sisters are. They weren't up for a visit that day though so we left and started going to the park. Sister Oh said something about a man she saw back at the hospital who she thought looked like he wanted to talk to us, we kind of shrugged it off for a minute a walked a little more but I just had this huge pit in m stomach saying we had to go back (even though it would probably be awkward). So we did, and when we got back we talked to the man and he told us he wants his daughter to meet with us. We also ended up talking to another woman as well who wants to meet with us! THEN! On our way back to the park we ran into one of our sisters who doesn't really come to church anymore. She's been struggling a lot lately, so we sat down at a picnic table and talked and shared a message about finding strength through Christ's atonement. There was something in the way she was talking to us that made us feel like we helped her in some way. But we wouldn't have seen her at all had we not gone back to the hospital. 

We also ended up getting free ice cream that day which was pretty cool!!!  

Then On Saturday, we got on the bus to go visit someone. When we got on the bus, we were both toally sure we were going the right way. But it turns out, we totally weren't. But when we got off to transfer busses, we realized we were near the home of a grandma that missionaries had met some time earlier. We had tried visiting her once before but she wasn't home. We figured while we were there we could try again. When we knocked on the door her granddaughter answered, and she invited us in. We ended up talking with the two of them for about a half hour and drinking juice and sharing a message. It doesn't seem like much but it was amazing that we even ended up there and that they welcomed us into their home. 

God sometimes works in funny ways. I've been learning a lot lately that our prayers are answered, most times, in ways we don't expect, but in ways that are best for us or for the people we are praying for. 

I wish I could tell y'all all the things like this that are happening all the time! It's so much fun to be here and to be able to meet people and learn so much constantly. 

I love y'all so much and I'm praying for you always!

Love always,

Sister Weston
