Mummy and Daddy,
Oh do I have a story for you. :D Do you remember the chap Neil? He was
the one who approached US in the street, called US to come to church,
and who lived behind the door we just happened to knock one day and
schedule him for baptism? Well....he's amazing! We made a little
calendar for him to keep track of his reading and praying. He loves
checking off all the little boxes.
Anyways....we got a text message from him yesterday morning.....I
never thought I'd say this, but I really really hate text
messages.....shocked much?....so am I....Whenever people text us on
Sundays, they usually break the news to us that they're backing out of
church and the whole investigation process.....I shake my wrists at
the sky, "OOOOOH TEXT MESSAGES!!!!" .....BUT.....his text message
thanked us profusely for all we've done for him, and later he called
us right before church. I nearly had to dive after the phone as his
elated squeals rocketed it into the street.
"IT'S TRUE!!!!! IT'S TRUE!!!! IT'S ALL TRUE!!!!"
" What's true, Neil?" *shouting at the pieces of the phone in the street*
"I did what you said. I prayed and I got a RIGHT TINGLE!!!! I KNOW
IT'S TRUE!!!!!! --- Don't mind me,Neil I'm just putting the phone back
together---I JUST WANT TO SHOUT IT AT THE ROOFTOPS!!!!! IT'S TRUE!!!!
My kids can just sulk if they don't want to come to church. I'm
coming! I'm the father, I'm coming! IT'S TRUE OH THANK YOU FOR ALL
YOU'VE DONE. THIS IS AMAZING!"
You can imagine that this put a particularly good spin on the day.
I've never quite experienced this before.... :D BAM! MIRACLE!
He came to church, and he looked quite smart indeed. He was so happy.
He bore his testimony to us. SO COOl. He called us a few times that
day to tell us that he invited a bunch of people to his baptism, he
prayed with some of his friends. One of his friends and his wife have
been trying to have a baby for 8 years with no luck. Neil said, let's
say a prayer, so they did and afterward Neil asked, "How do you
feel?" "I feel a right tingle!!!" hahahah Neil's referring us to his
friends....it's crazy. BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT!
In other news....The latest heated debate in England....Pepsi v.
Coke.....Which is better? I agreed to a blind taste test......Guess
what I picked.....nope... wrong....Pepsi tickled my brain in the right
spot...shocked?! So was I!!!!! .I still think it was rigged to be
honest. The coke was flat and diluted....which made me anti-happy.
Life is good :D Sister Terry and I are so happy! We're planning on
going to Sherwood Forest today :D Robin Hood here I come! We're so
excited for Christmas. We bought a little £5.00 tree and decorated
it....oh! blast I should have taken a photo...will do....that's
coming. I love feeling the spirit.....even if that means I'm sweaty
all the time :D I'd rather me sweaty and happy than dry and empty :D
ha HA!!!! Being a missionary rocks. Thank you so so so so much for
letting me come here! I'm learning, and relearning stuff all the time.
I know so much, but I know absolutely nothing at the same
time....isn't it wonderful :D I know this church is true with all my
little heart...how could it not be....oh if you could just feel what I
feel right now.... :D I'm so glad that all is going well. I wish I had
more time to comment on everything, but know that it makes me happy to
hear what's going on. I love you so so so so so much! mmmmmwah!
Love always and forever
YOUR Sister Stephanie White
