Wednesday after this appointment, we were on cloud nine. We had all really felt the Spirit and when you feel the Spirit, you just can't help but to be happy! The plan for the rest of the day was packed with appointments and then BAM! Yep. Every appointment (5) and joint teach (members who would like to come with us) fell out. Bummer, right? But, we, the Linz Sisters are troopers! We laughed it off, did our back up plans, BAM! Rejection with everyone we talked to. The day ends, still happy and chatting about how missionaries have to have days when everything falls out. Thursday, another appointment with H. At 12:30, when we were supposed to meet and H didn't show up - I gave him a call to see why he was late. He answered and confessed his undying love. How he couldn't come to the appointment because he knew that I was a Sister missionary and couldn't bare to see me and know that we couldn't be together. I calmly explained (still over the phone) that my purpose was to invite people to come onto Christ and that we could have the Elders teach him instead (if seeing me was too difficult). He then proposed to me, asking me to leave my time as a missionary and become his wife.
We know how this story ends. Sister Harman, explaining her purpose. H sadly accepting. The two parting as friends and his teaching will be continued by the Elders! :)
In other news, Sister Pentz and I sang before Sacrament meeting (scary but sounded great!). And we had another lesson with B! Not as dramatic as the lesson with H, but, much more productive! B is making tons of progress and is already half way through 1 Nephi! Using a translator can be tricky in lessons but, it's just amazing to see the Spirit work! Sister Pentz and I decided to teach the Restoration of the Gospel in picture form. So we just drew pictures as we taught so that nothing we taught would get lost in translation!
Well, I love you all and wish you the happiest of weeks!
Editor's note: I mentioned in Sister Harman's email "I get the sense that you, from the very beginning, have felt so lucky, blessed to have the chance to serve a mission! It was an unexpected gift to you from Heavenly Father." Her response was "Truth!" Her attitude is such a blessing to me. :)
