Wir sind die gleiche Person...

... aber du bist eine andere Farbe-- Sister Olsen

This week has been the most hilarious week ever. It's also been a huge blur haha. I spent a good two hours by myself with the Elders in the area while waiting for my new companion. Those were the strangest two hours of my life haha. We lived so many miracles I lost track of them all.

I think the miracle that made my week complete was one that happened yesterday. A couple weeks ago, at the beginning of the last transfer we talked to a random girl on the street and we invited her to come with us to church. We agreed to meet her at bahnhof right before church. We set up a meeting point and we were literally going on faith because she could only message us on wifi. We got to bahnhof the next day not thinking she'd be there waiting, but she was. She stayed for all three hours of church and loved it. Within that next week from meeting her, she moved back home to her country. Since then we've just been messaging her every once in a while.

Well, a couple days ago I felt like we needed to message her again. We had asked her every now and then if she'd read more in the Book of Mormon we gave her. Her response had always been no because she's been busy with school. That being said, I didn't expect the answer we got.

She had said she'd read it twice, but not completely. We then asked her what she thought about what she had read. These are her exact words: "The first thought was that IS IT TRUE, is it really from God?"

It might not seem like this is a miracle, but it is. I know, without a doubt, that the Book of Mormon is true. I know it to be the word of God, just as the Bible is. I've read it only a few times, but as I continue to read it I only become more certain of the validity of the precious truths within it. Joseph Smith set the example for each and every one of us, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him" (James 1:5). I know God is the only one who can answer all of our questions. It's just up to us to ask and listen. He will answer.
