Ok soooooo DUN DUN DUN sister faggs week!!!...here we go...
So first we do not have our ipads BUT we are 100% getting them tomorrow in zone training!!! SO tomorrow is the day!! we are so excited...but i think it is going to take a little getting used to it all!!
We have just come back from the stake BBQ! which was so fun! we played football...showed my skills that nathan taught me!! haha!!
It was lovely weather too!! So a great P-Day!!
BUT SECONDLY:....a little birdie told me there is a recording of my French on the blog!!!! ERMMMMM embarrassing people!!!! I openly apologise to all the french speakers out there!! haha!!You cheeky people!!! or sneaky is the right word!!!!!
Speaking of embarrassing moments....this is going to make you laugh!! SIster faggs embarrassing moment of the week...actually i have had a few this week. But here we go...so i am sitting on the bus on a higher seat. and we get to our stop. so i jump down ready to wait for the bus to stop. and i look back and my skirt has got caught on the chair higher up. So ALL OF THE BACK OF THE BUS ARE JUT LOOKING....AND MY UNDERWEAR WAS JUST RIGHT THERE SHOWING!!!!!!! I RAN OFF THE BUS. AND SISTER WILSHER WAS CRYING WITH LAUGHTER...IT IS DEFINATELY GOING DOWN IN ONE OF MY MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENTS OF ALL TIME!!!!
but anyway i am trying to forget about that little memory!!! sooo moving on!!
MIRACLE - our Ami has set a baptism date. And he told us how in chile his bestfriend was a member of the church. And he said if he didnt leave Chile he knows that he would of been baptised by his friend. And then we contacted him a few years later. And there you go. Heavenly father helped him find his way to the missionaries again. Another moment where i know we are guided as missionaries to the people who have been prepared for us. It happens ALL the time!! I love how much we are guided!!
ANOTHER MIRACLE - contacting miracle - we were contacting in the beautiful `Ouchy` and sister Camus felt we needed to speak to a guy who was quite a way away! so of course we go!! He is from the USA and has just moved to switzerland! And Once he found out we were missionaries he told us how back home the missionaries would always knock on his door or approach him on the street but it was always at the worst of times, when he was sooo busy. But now he has moved here and has all the time in the world!! So we taught him there by the lake!! And it was so great!! The Lord again is constantly preparing these people. He ALWAYS provides a way!!!
ANOTHER MIRACLE - 2 weeks ago i had a really great conversation with a university student on the metro. But before i could give her a card she had to get off. I was so upset!! and upset with myself because i know she needed the gospel!! So i prayed and asked if she would be put in our path again!! On Thursday i step on the metro, and who is sitting infront of me. YEP!!! The same girl!! It was amazing! He listens and answers our prayers ALWAYS!!
OK..now a crazy weekly moment. So we recieve a phone call from a man named *Fr. And he wants to see us to speak about the gospel. We are thinkinng `this is amazing so great!!` so we meet him at the church and he is so normal and so friendly. And THEN we start the lesson....and as soon as we mention Jesus Christ he switched into someone or something else. He is shouting, and waving his arms around, his eyes go really big, and he is pointing in our faces. But guess what sister fagg cant help but do...laugh....i know i know its bad!! But i could not help it!! seriously this guy is like dancing infront of me and coming right up to my face with these huge eyes...HOW CAN YOU NOT LAUGH!!!! But i controlled it dont worry!! But it was the strangest experience i have ever had!! He just switched into this crazy man when speaking about gospel things. AND then after leaving...he was completely normal again.....WEIRD!!!!
We had a really cool experience with a less active this week. And his wife is a non member also. We did the my family booklet with them. And it just brought such a lovely spirit into their home. They even noticed it. The non member wife...spent ages speaking about her grandmother and telling us all these stories. She loved it so much. It was so great to see! I love how something so simple as speaking about families can spark a light in others!!
So we had an exchange this week!! ME and sister wilsher stayed in lausanne and recieved a sister from the geneva spainish ward. She is super shy! So we really had to stretch ourselves. But it was a really great experience because in the lessons we had to speak more. we had no other option...and i think it showed me and sister wilsher that we can do this! and that we know enough to teach simply and understand! It was a happy moment for us two!! haha!!
ANOTHER SISTER FAGG MOMENT. walking up the stairs to our amis apartment. And our Ami waits at the top of the stairs for us to come up. So im just speaking with her walking up the stairs and i completely stack it!!!!! I FALL ON MY FACE ON THE STAIRS!!! I`m like trying to hold back the tears because it hurt so bad! whilst behind me sister wilsher and sister camus are crying with laughter and they cant stop!! Not one of my best moments!!
I was studying talks about the book of mormon in personal study this week and i LOVE this quote i found..
` to know the book of mormon is true is to know heavenly father and his son live. It is to know that life is beautiful and eternal. It is to know that as long as you keep trying when you fall, you will always be forgiven. It is to know the comfort that whatever storms come your way, you can face them as they are for your benefit. It is to know that you will never lose a loved one as he or she waits for you. It is to know love in all of its expressions.` DONT YOU JUST LOVE THAT!! i love it!! And it is so true, the book of mormon is not just a book it is solid proof that heavenly father loves his children. I know that the book of mormon is true because i have taken up the invitation that Moroni gives us. If you do not know that the book of mormon is true, start to discover. And it comes first by reading it. Read it everyday! I know before my mission i did not. And now as a missionary we have time set aside to do this. I know it is harder at home because there are so many distractions. But set a time aside to do it!! Seriously i know how much it will change your day and your testimony!! I love it so much and i will do it for the rest of my life!! Love you!!
On sunday we taught about the atonement. And there is a great analogy from the talk `grace is sufficient` or something like that...but it is: a mother pays for her daughter to have piano lessons. The mother pays the teacher in full. The daughter just has to play the piano. But to respect this gift that her mother has given her, she tries her very best and when she makes mistakes she keeps trying and keeps progressing even if she does not reach perfection. It is the same with the atonement. Jesus Christ has paid in full. We just need to play the piano. And try our very best, And use the gift he has given us. And when we make mistakes, which we will because we are not or ever will be perfect, we just keep trying and we will progress. I LOVE THIS ANALOGY: i thought it was so great!!
OK GUYS!! i have 2 weeks left of this transfer. can you believe it!! I will be on my thirs transfer in 2 weeks and no longer a `blue` (new)
ITS CRAZY!!!!!!!!! ENJOY EVERYDAY...because they go too quickly!!!
Ok one last quote that i found in study!!
`as we strive to place christ at the centre of our lives by learning his words, by following his ways and by walking his path, he has promised to share with us the eternal life that he died for. There is no higher end than this. nothing else, no other choice we make can make of us what he can..`
Choose to place christ more in the centre of your lives. As we choose him, he helps us become who we cannot on our own. We cannot reach our full potential without him!!
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. your emails, photos etc ALWAYS give me sooooo much strength!!
NEVER STOP BEING HAPPY AND INCREDIBLE AND JUST PERFECTION!! haha OH I DO LOVE YOU ALL!!
Have another amazing week!!
Know that you are incredible!!
LOVE YOUR ONE AND ONLY.....
SISTER FAGG xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
