As from my title you can probably guess it was a busy week. However, more than just busy there was a lot of sitting and driving in the car. We had a lot of things to do. We even were going to have exchanges but we had to cancel that.... one of the Sisters got sick. As much as we had to do we still accomplished a lot and I am not always sure how that was possible.
We have been going through our Area Book and looking for some people who may need a visit. It just so happens that they have all wanted one and miss us coming. On Tuesday we saw a lady who had been investigating for a while and then the Sisters just stopped coming by. She was so excited to see us. Weird though she said she recognized me!.... It wasn't the first time! It has happened a couple of times now. I must have a familiar face or am just so meant to be here everyone knew I was coming! :) Just kidding!!! We taught about mothers and shared one of my favorite scriptures in Alma 56:47. Her mom has Alzheimer and she is having a hard time with her and is starting to get exhausted. We came back Wednesday and taught the Restoration to her and she is excited to have us come back. I feel though that she is converted to the missionaries and not to the things she is learning, but we will see how it goes.

One of the miracles this week was we had a girl call us asking for us to get to together for us to start teaching her. We didn't know who she was just knew that her mom had just joined and she wanted to learn too. She told us that she had downloaded the Gospel app and wanted to know what we would be talking about in our lesson about two days before we had scheduled to see her. she keep texting us and trying to find a time that we could come earlier to see her. She is so amazing and so elect. This kind of thing of having them find us never ever happens. But I can see that God knows she is ready and she is so ready to except it. she wants to meet every day this week if we can!!!! Wait What? I was so shocked!!!! It is amazing at how this Gospel influence people. we had two other former investigators who called us to come see them and they want to be baptized. They ironically know one another and want to take the lessons together.
Sunday we had a great day at church and I can see the Lords hand in helping this ward in the work. They had great talks, and lessons that went so well together and I felt the spirit so well. It was my favorite Sunday here in Pembroke. There is a lot to be done and so much that we can help to improve but the Lord is already making it happen. I can see the amazing fruit of our labors starting to come and past missionaries efforts. The ward is starting to flourish.
I am so grateful for the chance I have to serve here and see the new side of Heaven. The time I had at the Temple was like a recharge and I could see the difference in me. I was in the house of the Lord and have been given revelation and my mind open to the possibilities of my work. I have noticed that don't remember who I was when I first came out! That Sister Tayler Farr and gone and the new Sister Tayler Amanda Farr is in the field that is white all ready to harvest! I am so grateful for the amazing opportunity I have to continue in this amazing work. My time is running shorter by the day and even smaller by the month. One thing I know is that for sure I am different because I am doing the Will of He who sent me here to North Carolina and I am where I need to be, meeting who I need to meet and helping and teaching who needs me for who I am and who I am now at this very second. I know that I am doing what I have been sent here to North Carolina and in Pembroke. It is been hard but it is so worth it! I can see the hard day are truly the best. The past 9 months has been worth every minute of every second and I have truly changed to what I can see that I want to become even in the moment of the hard times. The hard days are what makes me change. I love my Savior and I love all of you and I hope you have a great week. Especially to my parents for the time they get to spend in Hawaii celebrating 25 years of marriage. I hope you too have a great time! You both deserve some fun and time to relax. You only got 4 crazy kids out of these last 25 years. Love you! Love you all and till next week! :)
