What another great week! Pittsburgh is seriously one of the best places out there. I am so blessed that I have been able to spend a large portion of my mission in this area. This week we had a member come with us to teach a lesson, but they said today wasn't a good day. So as we were heading back to the car Brother Haglund said, "I know who we can see." So he took us to this oil preparing/ packaging factory. He said that the owner of the factory was a really good friend that he hadn't seen in 20 years! So we went up to the gates and the security guard let us in so we could see Brother Haglund’s friend. When we saw him, they both were very happy to see each other. We talked to him for a little bit and then he asked if we would like a tour of the factory! So he gave us hard hats and safety glasses and showed us around. He showed us where the barges delivered the oil from the river. And then he showed us around to all the assembly line machinery and it was awesome. I just remember walking through the factory and thinking to myself, "well this was an unexpected event for today!" Haha It was awesome though. This Sunday was awesome as well! Julia and her dad came to church again. Julia told her boss that she can no longer work on Sundays so she will be able to come to our ward every Sunday now. She's doing great and is such an example of a sincere heart. She is reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true and is acting to get that answer. Last night we also felt prompted to stop by a potential investigator named Ashley. When we met her she was just sitting on her porch and said we could stop by some time. When we got there, her brother answered the door and let us right in. We had an awesome lesson about the Book of Mormon and she told us how she feels it is so important to be open to things in life. She's excited to start learning more and for us to come back. Being a missionary is the best. I definitely can't complain about the 60° weather we’re having out here. The church is true and I know the Savior lives. Have a great week everyone.
