A quick week

This week just flew right on by and I don't even know where the time is going!
At district meeting this last Tuesday we talked a lot about revelation through prayer. It's been on my mind a lot this week. I've been focusing on making my prayers more meaningful and actually thinking about them and remembering what prayer is, rather than just doing it quickly out of habit or routine. It really has made a difference. I keep a journal by my bed so at night after my nightly prayers, I just write down whatever comes to mind and it's been so cool to see the blessings come as I've acted on those promptings I wrote down each night. I love Moroni 7:48, prayer does require effort but if we do our part Heavenly Father is always willing to do His too. 

 We had a split this week and Sister Busby came to our area with me and we had a little bit of time before it was time to head home that night so I felt like going by a referral, Tammie who we've hadn't been able to get in contact with. We've gone by SO many times but we never felt right about dropping her and that night we said a prayer and just before we knocked I told her, "I have a feeling she's going to be home." and Sister Busby is like, "split miracles! They're my favorite." And guess who opens the door, Tammie! And she was SO sweet. We showed her the initiative and invited her to be baptized and she said she would bring her daughter to church this week! 
 We were able to go to the UN on Thursday because the new general relief society President, Sister Bingham was going to be on a panel for a Focus on faith briefing. I didn't really know what it was all about but it was very interesting and they talked about refugees. And super cool that were able to go! 

 The weather has been so so nice so we have been eating lunch at Central Park and it's the best! We were able to do service for a few families from the ward this week and I love it!
 On Sunday we were doing an APF in central park. We stopped people and asked them what makes them happy and had them write it with sidewalk chalk. Getting to talk to people from everywhere is so awesome. One lady stopped and come to find out she is a refugee so that was cool because we had just been to a thing all about refugees!

I feel like this email is making zero sense so sorry but here's some pictures so ignore all of my confusing writing.

Thanks for all your sweet emails, love you!!

Last pday we went to the Brooklyn Bridge. It was PACKED but the skyline is pretty!

Last pday we were wandering and found this cute cupcake/ice cream shop!
They had a cupcake ATM too, so that was pretty cool.
On our split we took a member's garbage out but couldn't find a place to throw it for a sec...
until the fruit stand man told us where it went. Hahaha
They have these cute Italian Ice stands on the streets now that it's nice out so that was a fun treat.

Outside the UN
There are pretty flowers ALL over the city and I loooove them.  They are
constantly distracting me.
