Jay Fisher

Hello Family! 
This week has been wonderful and awful all at the same time. 
One of our progressing investigators completely flopped on us. He went from being excited about the gospel and getting baptized to full out doubt and unbelieving. It sucked. We tried everything to help with his concerns. We told him to read scriptures, we gave him mormon messages to watch we fasted for him. I never prayed so hard for an investigator before. and nothing happened. He still doesn't want to meet with us. He said he didn't read any anti material he is just done. He told us that he will just figure out if it is true when he dies and if that sends him to hell then he is fine with that. I don't know why this is happening it has made me really mad. It makes me mad because God has been in his life this whole time and he just doesn't see it. But it made me realize that God is always there. He is always reaching out or knocking on that door with no door nob. If we are struggling with our faith it is because of us. We are the ones closing the door. We are the ones who are not seeing. And it gives me a taste of Gods sorrow when one of his children turn away from him. It sucks! 
But God has also blessed us because I got to go to the temple and it was so refreshing. It was a reminder that everything is going to be okay. Everything is going to work out! :)
The Elders in Jeff City gave us a referral and it was a lady and her son. They met her at work and gave her a book of mormon. Her name is Jay Fisher!! Her son is 15 and has gone to youth activities at Fulton before! We met her and she was really nice and we were excited that we had the same last names! I want to look into it a little more and see if we are related :) She is out camping this week but next week we are going to meet up and share more with her and she said that she wants to come to church on sunday
Also on sunday a member came up to us and told us that her Foster child wants to take the lessons. So we need to figure out the rules for baptizing a foster child because we either need permission from he biological parents or the state.
It is important to remember as a missionary to respect the agency of others. God respects that agency too. But god answered my prayers by preparing more people for us to teach. And I am so grateful. I love being a missionary. I feel like God is teaching me so much with every experience I have. 
I love you all! Have a great week :
Love Sister Fisher
