Happy November!

Hey everyone! 
Things are going great over here in the best mission in the history of life! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are staying warm! 

I'll start out with a funny little story that happened this week! SO Sister Haertling and I had some extra time so we prayed about a street that we should go to tract in our area and we were led to a wonderful street up in the nicer part of our area. We started off with one house and went all the way down the street hoping someone would want to hear more about the plan Jesus Christ has for them and how they can come closer to Him. We eventually got to a house with a SUPER nice lady and we knocked on her door. She opened and before we could say anything she says COME ON IN!! So we gladly came in and she said, "Okay so all the people are downstairs so I can take your coats and you can join them." Haha, we thought about just going along with it but decided to tell her we weren't there for the party and that we were missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints before things got too confusing. The lady then says, "Yeah I know! All the youth are down stairs." Haha it was a really funny moment when we found out SHE WAS A MEMBER! Haha she thought we were there for the stake youth activity that they were having at their house that night! We talked with them a little bit and found out they are the Marriott's son and daughter in law!!!!!!!!! Haha so funny! We all had a good laugh about that! I knew I would tract into a member at least once on my mission haha! ;)

On a more spiritual note, we came across this man as we were out one day. We approached him and invited him to come to the Washington DC Temple Visitors' Center. He seemed really excited to come. We asked him some questions and found out that he has experienced some REALLY hard things in the last couple years that have really tested his faith and that he has almost lost all hope. We got to testify that our beliefs and what we teach is centered on Jesus Christ and how Christ can bring that hope back into our lives. He said that he knew he was supposed to be there that night and that it wasn't by chance that we found him. He asked if we could help bring that hope back into his life. I am so grateful to be an instrument in helping others feel of Gods' love. We found out that his name is Douglas Freeman! I don't know, maybe it is because we had the same last name but we felt a connection to him! It was really neat! 

So there was an ambassador that came in from Zimbabwe! Some Sisters and the Visitor Center Director took she and her family around. They showed her the temple model that we have and the sisters that took her around told us something really neat that she said! They said that she knew why our religion was spreading so rapidly in Zimbabwe. She said it is because of our belief in the family. She knew about how they were going to build a temple there and she expressed concern that they would need a bigger temple for the growth that their country will be experiencing! It was so neat to hear.

We got to go to the city today! It was so fun! I hope you all have a great week! Stay safe and I love you all!
Love, Sister Megan Elizabeth Freeman
