Friends and family! Guess what???
We are going to flood the earth with the Good News! We'll be getting ipad minis by the end of the year! FB, blogs, mormon.org, mormonchannel, hasteningthework.org! This will bring miracles like never before. We had dinner with the Thomas' Saturday night--their daughter is the missionary of all missionaries. She could convert the whole world. She is 7 years-old and in her journal that she writes between her and her teacher she always shares the gospel. For her favorite fall traditions she wrote about Thanksgiving, Fall Festival, and General Conference and explained about what GC is. She also invited her teacher via her journal to come to her baptism next year :) Over the past couple of years she has given all of her teachers a copy of The Book of Mormon.
This Saturday the SCCM (South Carolina Columbia Mission) is having a Mini Mission where youth who have been interviewed, found worthy, prepared, etc. will get to basically do a job shadow with us for the day. From 8:00am-9:30pm. they will study with, knock with, teach with, and plan with us for the entire day, to see what being a missionary is really like. There's also something the following Saturday...but it's a surprise!!! Yesterday, we started a 40-day fast in the 1st ward. We had a family each sign up for a day to fast (whether giving up food or something else important to them for the day). This is a fast for both the missionaries and for their own missionary experiences. Later, we will go back and ask them about their own experience and tell them about the miracles we experienced that day, and also for a person they would like to invite to the No More Strangers Fireside.
Love y'all! Sister McNeece
P.S. Sorry it's short this week. Will (hopefully) expound more next week :)
