October 23, 2016 - Heavenly Father keeps track of all of his children.

After a long, somewhat slower week of lots of cancelled appointments (19 cancelled appointments, 2 actually went through) and hours of finding and praying to find people to teach: another super cool miracle! God is so great and knows just we needed to make our week awesome.
So we were pulling out of a trailer park and stopped to let a lady walk in front of us. As she was walking I was thinking: That lady looks familiar. Then it clicked. Jakubczak started rolling forward but I yelled stop the car! As I rolled down the window and flagged down none other than Coreana G!
For anybody that has an amazing memory, Coreana was the very first person I helped be baptized on my mission. Only about 3 weeks out. Then a few weeks after her baptism she moved to Texas randomly and dropped off the face of the Earth and everybody thought she had gone to Mexico and didn't know what to do with her records to keep track of her. Then all the sudden, 19 months later, there she is walking across the road. 
She told me was that when she moved into her new house a few months ago the first thing she did was put the picture of Her, Elder Lords and I at her baptism front and center above her T.V. 

It was the greatest feeling ever and the Spirit definitely taught me that Heavenly Father keeps track of all of his children. 

We also took a roadtrip out to Dubuque on Thursday to drop off Elder Covington, a Marshallese speaking Elder who flew in a different day than everybody else. So in our 3 1/2 hours there and 3 1/2 hours back we had to pull over a few times and stretch and take some cool pics with the fall colors. Elder J has a nice photography camera :)
