I've been in Ruston 'since I was knee high to a grasshopper."

This week has been pretty great! We are busy finding/following up with those we have tracted into.
Because of interviews President and Sister McDonough came to the Ruston ward on Sunday. It was really fun to have them there! They are so great! We are teaching an investigator that is a senior at La Tech. We met her at a bible study. We invited her to church on Saturday and she said she is dealing with some family struggles, but that she would try to come to church. SHE CAME! It has been weeks since we have seen an investigator at church! I wanted to cry! She looked beautiful. She said she woke up and just new that if she didn't come she would feel guilty so she opened her closet and an outfit just jumped out to her. She was only able to stay for sacrament meeting, but she said she enjoyed it and said that all the speakers spoke of struggles she is going through. After she left a ton of members came up to us all excited to see who she was they said, "she just had a glow about her." She really does. She is studying the Book of Mormon and praying about the lessons. It's amazing.
Jimillah, the lady I told y'all about last week, we saw her yesterday. Her uncle has just passed away. We hadn't given her a copy of the Book of Mormon yet so we explained it to her and then read from Alma 40 and taught her where her uncle is. It brought her a lot of comfort and the spirit was very strong.
Anyways, that's all for this week. We're working hard to find the elect here in Ruston, Louisiana. May God ever guide are steps.
Love, Sister Hartley
