Sister Allgaier is now the designated driver so it will come to no surprise, for those who knew me, that I got a flat tire this week. Thank heavens for elders who know how to change a tire. It was an adventure for sure.
Apart from that, it was a great week filled with lots of shut doors, dropped appointments, and the occasional miracle. We met our miracle this week while it was raining immensely. Sam Cloud (please refer to lds.org and watch the safety video entitled "An Interview With A Cloud") was really trying to get his two-for-one. We knocked an apartment complex and met Shelagh. She is the nicest person I have ever met. She let us right in and we gave her a Book of Mormon. She was so shocked we would share it with her. It was the cutest thing ever!! People that are kind to us forever help make knocking scary places worth it.
In regards to the deaf community, things are booming! We have a deaf referral we are seeing this week which is so exciting. One of our deaf members asked me to interpret hearing Sacrament this week and ask me how terrified I was. Very terrified. I don't think I stopped praying for that whole hour. The gift of hands is SO real. I was signing signs I know I didn't know but they understood and I made it through. It's so good because the deaf members are trusting us!! It's so good. We should be getting name signs this week so stay tuned.
FYI: My PDay this coming week will be on Wednesday, August 30th so if you don't hear from me, don't worry. I'm not dead. We have zone conference on Monday so our whole mission is doing PDay on Wednesday.
I love you all! Have a great week and I pray for you all!!
