Last Week in Yonkers???

Dear family,

We've had a great week this week. Maribel got confirmed on Sunday and she said that she had this amazing warm feeling that she had never felt before. That's the Holy Ghost girl! We went to visit her for the first time after her confirmation on Tuesday. She came out of the house and accidentally locked herself out. The keys and a pot full of rice on the stove (which was on) were inside! She was freaking out because she was going to burn the house down, and it's not even hers! The landlord wouldn't be home for another hour or two. So we prayed that we would somehow find a way to get in the house and turn off the stove. Maybe God would give me thug lock-picking powers or knock down a window or something, but after a long good effort, we realized there was nothing we could do except wait for the landlord to come back. So we had a lesson outside and then we had to leave. Maribel called us an hour later to tell us that the rice had been cooking for 2 and a half hours with only a little bit of water and the burner on high, but when the landlord came (2 and a half hours later- repeated for dramatic emphasis) it was just BARELY starting to burn! Prayer works y'all. And that rice must've tasted darn good because them angels are good cooks.

So that was our miracle of the week. Our appearance didn't cause a house fire! Yay!

Tonight we get training calls! Only two sister companionships will be normal (not training a new missionary and not called as sister training leader). So that's horrifying. But I'll let you know how it goes next week.
I love you all!
