Hi Friends and my sweet Family! PICTURES AT THE BOTTOM
So A miracle happened this week! We were doing splits earlier this week with the sisters who live 3 apartments down from sister Dickison and sister Strebel and all those sisters. Anyways we were all having dinner together one night and sister Strebel says 'Sister Jones! did you hear about Jenie?' It kinda scared me at first cause the last time I head she was not doing well and getting really skinny cause she had no money for food. S. STrebel heard from Sister Andersen that Jenie's husband who had left her 9 months ago cause he had another woman pregnant out in the province, Well.....I guess he came back.....whaaa?? That doesn't sound good...but wait! I guess what happened is that he had lied to her because he didn't feel ready to be a father and that much commitment so he left and found a job out in the province. Keep in mind he's still really young he's only 19 years old... After a while though he started feeling really guilty and missed Jenie and baby AJ so he came back. After explaining himself and asking for forgiveness Jenie took him back and (this part makes me so proud!) the first thing Jenie did was start talking about the gospel and how it had changed her life and showed him pictures of her baptism. I guess since then every conversation they have always ends up on the gospel. Jenie also told him her desire to enter the temple as a family and be sealed for Eternity. He told her that he would do everything in his power to get her and AJ to the temple. The missionaries are now teaching him and he even brought Jenie and Aj to church last Sunday! S. Andersen said Jenie's face was just beaming and she kept saying "my family is complete now". Jenie's husband also had a miracle of his own, shortly after his return home he text his boss telling him that he was quitting so he could stay home with his family. After he sent the text he kneeled down and said a prayer as soon as he said amen, his phone buzzed with a text from his Boss saying that he could just transfer to the Branch they have right next to where they live and he could keep his job!! After S. STrebel told me all this I just started balling right in the middle of us all eating dinner haha. I was so happy!! I've been praying for her for weeks and weeks asking for a miracle to happen and it did! I'm so happy for her! I pray that they will get to the temple someday:) This was probably one of the highlights of my whole mission!
Being sick has a tendency to make me miss home more, just know that I miss and love you guys. Dont' worry about me I have lots of meds and an awesome companion who is taking great care of me. Hopefully this won't last too long, it's really not fun:(
