Hey y'all! It was a crazy week here in Stuart! 

So Tuesday we were out doing our thing and we were working in an area we hadn't been before. So like always we said a prayer before getting out of the car. We had a goal of 3 new investigators this week, so I prayed that we would find one on this street. So we knock like 4 doors, no one is home, or interested. So we see some more at the very end of the street and so we decided to go for it. It was one of those split homes. So we tried one side, no answer, but someone answered on side 2! They let us in and we taught a brief restoration and really focused on the Book of Mormon! So not only did God answer our prayer of one investigator, he gave us two! #blessed 

Wednesday was the crazy day. So we went to Mount Airy for district meeting, then had district lunch at Cracker Barrel. The service was so slowwwww. We had to go to Firestone in Winston and we planned on doing that before we had interviews with our mission president. But because lunch took so long, it had to wait till after. Which is a great thing, let me tell ya why. So we dropped our car off and the mall was right by Firestone so naturally  that's where we waited. Two hours later we get a call. Apparently something in our car was broken AND THEY NEEDED TO KEEP IT OVERNIGHT😅😭 We went in to full panic mode. We had nothing with us to spend the night anywhere, including those little pills I take everynight to keep me alive. So thank the high heavens we were in our Sister Training Leaders area! 🙌 They came and picked us up and we were able to do twice the missionary work! And have an unexpected sleepover, where I got to experience brushing my teeth with my fingers. I am very thankful for the invention of the tooth brush. 

So next day. They called in the morning and said they got to part and they would have it done  in the afternoon. So we did weekly planning and then the sisters dropped us off to wait. And what do you know, Olive Garden was conveniently located right by Firestone. So of course we treated ourselves😜 We ended up getting home around 4pm. You could say we slept real good that night!

Saturday we were able to meet a Less Active who is actual semi active just not in the right place haha. So we let him know that Stuart has a branch! And bonus! He is getting married in 2 weeks and wants us to teach his wife🎉😊

It has been raining all day since Saturday! So hopefully I don't float away 😉 I hope you are all doing well! Love you lots❤ 

Sending Love,
Sister Jacobsmeyer💕
