Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission // April 2014-October 2015

We had a special Mission Training this week on Thursday and President surprised us by letting us watch Meet the Mormons. It is SO GOOD! If you haven't seen it...WATCH IT! 
It was almost better than Christmas.
We've been seeing a lot of miracles here in Pines. We dropped a few people who weren't progressing and then the miracles came. One of our investigators actually came to Bible Study despite the fact that she had had SURGERY on her foot THAT DAY!!! Talk about faith. She always says, "I love the Lord" We also had a powerful Plan of Salvation with her and she is started to recognize the need for her to be baptized again. She came to church on Sunday as well as three of our other investigators. It was the most Investigators I've ever had attend Sacrament at one time. Three of them were confused as to why we didn't have ANY crosses in our church. They are all struggling with word of wisdom problems so we weren't able to set them with dates, but we're doing that this week. We also followed up with an amazing referral and the woman is SO ELECT! We have an appointment with her soon.
Sister Anderson is warming up wonderfully to missionary work. This week we did well at trading off more and having more of a balance during lessons. She took the lead in a Resto lesson and it was very powerful.
We sang in Sacrament Meeting this week and it went really well. I don't think anyone noticed how much I was shaking so that was a blessing. One of our investigators said that she cried and our other investigator recorded it on her phone...what can ya do? haha
This week I read this scripture and thought it was very fitting for Thanksgiving:
"That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you." (Alma 34:38).
I love you all so much and I am extremely GRATEFUL for all of your prayers and support. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because there is good food, your spending time with your family, and you don't have to worry about buying or receiving gifts. 
I definitely encourage you all to read Deuteronomy 14:11 in honor of the season. 
Do it!
Sincerely, Sister Matheson
It actually got cold this week. 
We had to wear layers and go get gloves from Wal-Mart...who'd a thunk?
Our investigator at Bible Study!!! I love her to death.
We got special permission to go "sun rising" this morning. 

We went to the Beach this morning and I saw the ocean here for the FIRST TIME:) 

 There I am, showing off my baby!

 With Sister McKell!! LOVE her!!
