Man oh man what a crazy week all starting on Monday but things here in Florence are so great I cannot believe it has been four months since I left. Right? Time sure is flying and I just hope to be able to accomplish everything Heavenly Father has prepared me for. On Monday we met Joyce who met with missionaries one year ago she is so sincere and wants to change and this gospel is the one that she knows Heavenly father wants her to be in so she wants to be baptized on Oct 20th. Sad news is that just the other night her youngest brother was killed. I am so amazed and privileged to be an instrument in the lords hand and do his will in being that person to help her have an gain the hope that she can see her brother again I am excited for this opportunity and I strongly feel that she is why I am in Florence right now with Sister Garlick who is the best and is very patient with me and my craziness. We also have Marquita on date she also met the missionaries years ago but then her daughter got really sick and lost contact with them but she had been hoping for another chance to meet missionaries and lo and behold we show up she is very spiritual and has a lot of faith and is very sincere she is on date for the 27th of October. The Moores are good their daughter Zoey turned nine and is no longer a child of record and so we have to teach her the gospel so she can be baptized but her parents are having difficulties because of Kelleys mom who is very anti Mormon and is riding Zoey pretty hard to go to church with her it will take a lot of patience which I am having to work on right now but I know that it will all work out and Heavenly Father will provide the way as always and I know it will be ok it may not be in my time in Florence but it will happen. We were privileged to have two sisters Sister Allen and Sister Chai come for a night and it was like a spiritual sleep over which was the highlight of my day. On Saturday our ward had a linger Longer in which everyone pawned off their food for us so we will be well fed for the week which I am not complaining at all and on Saturday night we watched the relief society broadcast at the church which was so fun we were able to get a less active to come and she loved it so it was great to see her smile. On Sunday we spent most of the morning trying to gather up people to come to church and were able to get Ross Junior who is an investigator who love Jesus and church he started to read the Book of Mormon and loves it and is reading it always he is a sweet guy who deserves this gospel. Everyone deserves this gospel no matter who or where they are but it is for everyone. I hope everyone is doing great and is enjoying fall and the first full day of October.
I love you all and thank you so much for your prayers for me and the investigators truly they are felt and what give us success here.
Know I keep y'all in my prayers as well have a great week and till next week
Love Sister Browning
