Week 74- Last transfer!

Tomorrow I'll find out where I'm going. 
I'm excited to get to know a new area and ward and find the people who need to hear my testimony.

This week while knocking doors we met a man named David. He told us he wasn't sure if God even existed and Sister Brisco and I both testified of how we know that God is there. His heart began to be soft and he then asked us to pray for him to be able to overcome his alcoholism.  He cried and cried and then told us that he felt peace. He knew that God sent us. The following day we took a member over with us who had struggled with addiction before his baptism. He bore his testimony and said just the perfect things that David needed to hear. The members sometimes doubt how powerful their testimonies, but this was a great experience for all of us.
Yesterday we biked all day! We were on our way to go knock doors when it POURED! We biked as fast as we could to the nearest store. When we got to Winn Dixie we were already SO soaked though. Gotta love Florida!

I've been studying about Alma and Amulek's missionary experiences in the book of Alma. I love their fierce faith and willingness to follow the Spirit. At first they may have felt they weren't successful, but later they return and heal Zeezrom who then is converted unto the Lord. We truly are on the Lord's timetable because this is HIS work. We just have to trust that he really will provide. 
And he always does.
Love you all!
Sincerely, Sister Matheson

Before the storm...

I love the Hurst family! Going to miss them. 
Our district training. 
If you're wondering why an Elder is on the table...
It's because he's "Dying" (aka going home).

That is at our chapel.
 So much biking this week!
