The car takes another hit...

We moved into a new house on Tuesday. It was so sad leaving the Buss's, but our new "family" is incredible. They are some of the nicest people. They make us breakfast and are hilarious. They are actually members in the Spanish Branch so I'm not really sure why we are living with them while the spanish sisters are in an apartment, but I couldn't be happier with how it all worked out. I feel so lucky every day. Heavenly Father really loves me. I often feel like I don't deserve it, which makes me realize just how unconditional His love is.
We set two of our investigators with a baptism date!! March 15th. It's the two grandkids of the less active couple. They continue to participate in our discussions and love to read the scriptures. They are adorable. It's different teaching children. I feel like we use a lot more analogies and it has just really helped me to teach more simply. I just want everyone to know everything, but there is wisdom in learning precept upon precept.
A lady hit our car on Saturday..... so we are driving "the transformer" again haha. The front right bumper is again in our trunk and I just laughed when it happened because 1) no one was hurt and 2) it looks almost the same as last time..... I think this car is bad luck. Everything happens for a reason right? Who knows what will happen because of this little set back.
T is doing fantastic. She continues to meet with us once a week, attends church, and is doing missionary work left and right. It's so cool to see how understanding the Atonement causes us to reach out and want to share it with others. I want to study the Atonement more often this transfer. It's hard sometimes to get motivated to go out in the snow and work until late, but I feel like that is simply a result of not understanding/remembering the Atonement. It is the source of power and strength by which we are able to accomplish all He asks of us. I can be awfully forgetful sometimes, so that's my plan.
A miracle just happened right this second!!!!!!! I have chills all over right now. One of our potential investigators just came over, sat down, and talked to me for a little while. I can't even describe how much I love this woman. She is a friend of one of the ward members and has met with missionaries a little bit before. She keeps reaching out to us and I have to believe that she is one of the main reasons I am still in Greeley. She asked when we could come over this week!!!! Wow I'm so excited!! I really really really really love this woman. I can't wait to start meeting with her, but we keep getting the impression to be patient and to let her come to us. We're trying to follow the spirit (even though I just want to start teaching every time I talk to her).
Love, Sister Rashauna Hoer
