Tuesday night we had FHE and dinner at the bishops home. We invited a family we are teaching and it was so great! I'm not sure if I have talked about the Polston family yet but they are wonderful! The dad is a member and the wife and their three children are not. They have two boys with a girl in the middle, so I feel right at home! They are all so fun and we love them! They had a lot of fun and it was good to for them to get to know the Bishop! Nikki the mom has been taking the lessons for awhile but we never knew how much she actually knew who how interested they really were. But this week we saw so many miracles with the family and it was incredible! Tuesday night was the kickoff with the bishop teaching the restoration. She understood it so well and asked some great questions. It was so cool to hear someone else teach the restoration and I learned so much! Nikki explained that she has been praying and praying about it but just doesn't feel like she is getting an answer. A while back she was even going to church but just stopped because she didn't know if it was right. We were worried she felt a little pressured but it ended up being just right. It was a super fun night!
Wednesday I was on exchanges in Loganville with Sister Palmer. We had fun and it was an awesome day! The highlight of the day was our lesson with Hope. They are teaching this wonderful woman from Jamaica and she has the greatest accent. She told us her story and her faith is incredible. We talked about faith the whole time and the spirit was so strong! It was so cool because the week before we had a Sunday school lesson on faith. Afterwards I was thinking how cool it was that we just talked about faith for an hour instead of a couple minutes while teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ like I was used to now. I wondered what it would be like to just teach faith for the whole lesson and really dive into it like that instead of just scratching the surface. It was so great and perfect for Hope. I love her so much and am so glad she is still in our area so I can see her at church!
Friday we had great lessons with Dylan and Kenny. Dylan has been reading from the Book of Mormon and understanding it pretty well. We read a chapter with him and it was great. We talked about the commandment to study the scriptures and keeping the sabbath day holy! That night we met with Kenny. He is doing great and also reading from the BoM. We taught him the gospel of Jesus Christ and he asked great questions. He was at church on Sunday and loved it!
Saturday morning we had a lesson with a bible referral named Barbara. We taught her the restoration and she said "do I get one of those too?!" Pointing at the BoM and of course we said yes! The spirit was so strong and it was a great lesson! She is so sweet and really interested! Then that night we met a new less active named Hazel. She is the cutest little southern lady and I love her so much! She was so happy to see us and just couldn't stop laughing. I love the south so much! She had lost her BoM in a move so we gave her a new one and she was so happy! I'm so excited to visit her more and help her come back to church!
Sunday was an incredible day! Church was about to start and then we saw the Polston family walk in!! Not just him but Nikki and Finley came too. It was such a miracle and we couldn't believe it! Keiren and Kenny came too and we had a wonderful testimony meeting! That night we had a great lesson with the Polston family! We taught them the plan of salvation and it went so well! They asked so many great questions and the kids were so into it! When we had Finley who is 12 read 2 Nephi 2:22-25 (about the fall) he said "oh so if they didn't the fruit then we wouldn't be here and heavenly fathers plan wouldn't have gone through!" It was so amazing! Nikki told us while we walking out that Olivia wants to be baptized they just don't feel like she is ready quite yet and so they are so glad we are teaching them! It was so great and we couldn't stop smiling all night.
I love being a missionary! This is the lords work! The Book of Mormon is true. I'm so grateful for this time I have to be a missionary! Thank you so much for all you're love and support! I couldn't do it with you! Have a blessed week! I love y'all!
Love, Sister Hosman🍑
