Hello friends! :) I am currently serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. I'll be emailing home every week for the 18 months that I'm in the Cornhusker state; my amazing mom will be the one posting them on this here blog. Interested in church history? Come on down to the Mormon Trail Center at Historic Winter Quarters and I might just be there to give you a tour!

Miracle moments!‏ April 4, 2016

Hello hello! I hope everyone had a great conference weekend! I know I
did. I'm so grateful that we have a living prophet on the earth today
- President Thomas S. Monson! I love his counsel to "choose the harder
right". The right thing isn't always easy but it's always worth it.

This week we definitely saw the Lord's hand in our work!

Miracle #1 We have been praying for a media referral and we got one from the trail center! A lady named Dianne came in and accepted missionaries to come to her house and she just so happens to live in Walnut Creek. :)

Miracle #2 We had a lesson with Harold and the Henry's and talked about the plan of salvation and the importance of agency. He said he finally understands why we have choices! Also Sister Young and I finally got a picture with him. He's waving at the camera to our mom's - he is just the funniest!

Miracle #3 We drove past this less active girl's house and saw that she wasn't home. We went to the gas station and guess who pulled up in her car right next to us?? We were able to talk with her and find out she is usually free on Mondays so we're going to set something up with her for next week!

Miracle #4 Another time we were at the right place at the right time was when we went to visit this lady Sharon. She was in the garage packing up boxes because it turns out she doesn't actually live there anymore, she moved and was just finishing up some stuff so we offered to help her!

Miracle #5 One day we were getting out of our car to try a house and this man stopped in the middle of the street and rolled down his window to talk to us. He asked if we were Mormons and we said that we were missionaries. He said his name was Jason and that he had been waiting years for Mormon missionaries to come to his door!!!! We almost passed out from excitement! That's the missionary's dream! We went to his house about an hour later with Sister Denos and answered some questions he had. Really nice guy!

I know there are miracles in every day if we just take the time to look for them! See what miracles you can find this week. :)

Love, Sister Irwin
