Dec. 9, 2014 - Final Mission Email

Sorry, I didn't get this out sooner. We have been busy preparing for Ashley's return. She flew in last night, safe and sound. We are SOOO thrilled to have this beautiful young woman home with us again!

Love, Lisa

Hey all,

Georgia has definitely become a home for me. I think about the empty heart I had when I read the words, "Georgia Atlanta North Mission, preaching the Gospel in the English language." And how absolutely overflowing my heart is with gratitude and love for those very same words. Wow.

Our investigators, M & A are doing well. They are in good hands and we don't worry that both of us will be leaving. He got a job and she had an interview for a promotion. He is actually working for our ward mission leader. He does a really good job of keeping work and baptism separate. He's being really careful. But he did tell us a cool story. He said that a few days after M started working there, a co worker asked if he was a member! He has the "mormon glow"! (The Mormon Glow is a real thing! Google it.)

She has a lot of questions all of the sudden, so we called her husband about his thoughts and he said that she tends to put a lot of obstacles in her way right before making an important decision, but once she makes the decision, she is very firm in that. He is ready to be baptized. He doesn't know everything, but he believes it. And he knows that when he receives the gift of the Holy Ghost, that he'll feel that confirmation that it's right. We asked him if he had considered getting baptized so he can then tell her about his own experience and he has, but his gut feeling tells him just to wait a little bit longer. I love them. A lot :) Whenever they decide to get baptized will be the perfect day for them :)

Remember 'He is the Gift?'! Well. It is fantastic. We iPad-less missionaries are super creative and recorded it on our cameras so we can use it contacting! AND we tried something new! We went contacting at a gas station! Why haven't we tried that sooner?!? But really though. People are stuck at the pump... so they have two minutes. There was one kind gentleman who said that he didn't have time... I laughed... out loud. 
We tracted into this guy who watched it with us and about 10 seconds into the video he goes, "I've seen this before. One of my friends from high school posted it on facebook. I haven't talked to him in many years... but I watched it anyway. It's really good!" So fun!! It has been so fun to share the Christmas Spirit with those around me :) I love Christmas!! :)

A. & M. some new investigators came to a big ole nativity celebration that was put on at the stake center. They got caught in traffic and then ended up at the temple instead of the stake center... but still came. They made it for the last song and the closing prayer. But they loved the few minutes that they heard. She had us over this morning to make tamales with her :) I love her with all of my heart.

I'm really grateful for Georgia. For the love that has come to my heart because the Heavenly Father was gracious enough to let one of his very imperfect daughters take part in the joy of sharing the Gospel.

See y'all soon!
