Here are the tender mercies for my first week in LITTLE ROCK
Monday- The Little Rock sisters had a baptism on Monday and it was a miracle for Hermana Hudson to be able to come! It was so sweet.
Tuesday- We had to bike Tuesday because we were out of miles, and Little Rock doesn't have very many sidewalks or shoulders so we were riding along and a giant nail went through my tire. It was super hot outside and we were halfway between home and the super far place we were going. This nice member saw us try to figure it out and he offered us a ride but we couldn't because it was just a single man, but he referred us over to the Goodyear down the street. So we walked over there and the super nice Goodyear guys, after trying everything they could to fix it the manager hopped in his truck and got me a new tube and tire and came back and fixed it up for me! It was so so nice. (And it's still working woohoo.)
Wednesday- We have been talking to a lot of the kids who are just hangin out and there were these two who were asking about God and like after life and stuff and it was really fun to teach them! Then they took us to their mom who wants us to come back. Later that night we were heading home and we decided to stop by this lady who has been coming to English class, and SHE GAVE US YUMMY ENCHILADAS AND THEY WERE SO SPICY AND GOOD. Tender mercy. And we biked at super speed to get back home and we got home just in time.

Thursday- Last minute, Hermana Barrientos was able to come teaching with us. A few days earlier we were biking around and Hna Thornton talked to a cute Hispanic couple outside and we went back to teach them and they really liked the restoration and they have the cutest little daughter too!
Friday- We had some good planning on Friday and Hermana Roper came teaching with us! She was really sweet and we found this giant trailer park which we are going back to.
Saturday- NAUN. It was so cool. Hermana Thornton had felt all week that we need to teach this investigator with her whole family and we need to find a way to get them all to sit down with us. We went to see them and the son, Naun, answered the door and long story short he is a member from Honduras and is wanting to learn English and he didn't know where the church is!!! It was so cool. He's the sweetest young guy and we gave him an English Book of Mormon to learn English.
Sunday- We went to see Crescenciana (who came to church! woohoo!) and Hna Lopez helped her feel more comfortable with baptism. She is really in a lot of pain and can't be baptized right now but we helped her overcome her fears and start considering baptism!
Sorry this might be boring but it was really a great week! Hna Thornton is super awesome and I'm excited to be here in Little Rock.
Read your scriptures and keep the Sabbath Day holy!
