A New Area, A Bunch of Sisters, A Sick Companion, Miracles! E-mail - January 3, 2012

I believe as I said last week, I'm in Redlands.    It has been a unique expierience. I am the oldest elder in mission life in the zone, so I'm Patriarch Daniel. It's weird, never thought I'd be a Patriarch. So I'm in Highlands in Redlands Zone.  Highlands is really interesting, it's one city built on a hill.   Biking will be fun! Although, we have not biked yet. My comps b-day is on the 27th ( I don't know why I said that).  We knew each other before he was in my district, the first time I was in Menifee. The Sisters are different... they like to ask lots of questions, it's like everyday they call to ask us something kinda weird. They are awsome workeres and they love the Lord so that's good. 

Well, my comp has been sick for the last 4 days I have been sooo bored. I watched movies all morning... church movies. Before my comp got sick though we had a ton of miracles. We were going to see this man at the dialysis center and we stopped by a lady to talk about the church and she wanted to know about what we believe.  While we were teaching I had the inspiration to ask if she had ever recieved a blessing and my comp said he had never given her one before.  So, we gave her a blessing and then my companion twisted his ankle and we had to go home, but I didn't know the way and he was in too much pain to lead the way so I went the wrong way... my bad, but we ended up on the street of this investigator that we had so we decided to stop by and see her.   She said that she needed us and was telling us that she couldn't be a member because she had anger problems.  I then told her about some members I know with anger problems and it calmed her down.

I realized that God sometimes sends us miracles because we need to see our faith in action. I know that it is because of our faith and our hard work that we saw those miracles.
