9/11 Memorial

I don't really even remember what all happened this week so it might be all over the place, but I feel
like that's how every week goes-sorry. 
Sister Lee has been teaching me a new word in Korean each day, so now I can say hello, thank you, I love you, and random things found within the subways. So perks of having a bilingual companion!! 
 Winter decided to return & everyone is talking about a blizzard coming this week but we'll see! It snowed once this past week but it didn't really stay for too long.

  Last P-day we went to the 9/11 museum and memorial and that place was incredible. As we walked over and watched the water at the memorial and read the names of the victims you could just feel the spirit so strongly there. It was a really amazing experience.

 We always have a lot of neat experiences but I never know which ones to write about either..
This week we were still street contacting and showing the Because of Him video. And we passed a woman and told her, her dog was cute so we stopped and ended up talking to her and she was Muslim & we showed her the video and she was bawling by the end of it. Showing that video never ceases to amaze me at the way it just invites the spirit and people can feel that- regardless of what religion they are and how busy the sidewalks are.

 Our sacrament meeting starts at 11 this year so we  always have a lot of visitors in our ward and this week we heard that there were about SEVENTY FIVE visitors yesterday. How crazy is that!! There was a lady there who wasn't a member and was just walking by and saw the plaque outside and came in for sacrament meeting. She was so sweet and from Russia so she didn't speak a whole lot of English but google translate to the rescue again!! I think it is so amazing that we get to talk to people from all over the world, from different countries all on the same day.

 At a meeting last week we were talking about...well I don't really remember what exactly but someone said, "You find what you're looking for." and I don't know why that stuck out to me so much but its true- when all you look for is the bad. That's all you find. So look for the good and you will find it!! Jeremiah 29:13- look for Christ & you'll feel of His love in your life, I can promise you that!!

love you all 
xoxo Sister Walecki
