Hey Hey!!

I'll just start this week off with a bang... MIRACLES!! We had an absolutely amazing string of awesomeness this week. I'll start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) On Tuesday this week, we were getting off of the bus at capital square, and we heard somebody call out to us from behind. Madison being a big place, we didn't think much of it, but they continued to call out and we turned around. A man in his early 50s came up to talk to us. We greeted him, but he motioned to us that he was deaf. He brought a pen and paper out of his bag and wrote "I have heard of the Book of Mormon" We, of course, were ecstatic. We wrote back and forth, and he asked if our church had ASL translation. We had no idea if anyone in the ward translated ASL or not, so we told him that we would find out. We exchanged information,his name is Ricky by the way, and texted the bishop to see if he knew of anyone. Pretty amazing right? BUT WAIT, there's more! We went to a member dinner that night, and being good missionaries, we shared that experience with them. We could not have anticipated this, but as soon as we finished, Sister Cope said, "well.... I have a masters degree in ASL." :O Elder Cook literally fell to the floor when he heard that. Amazing right? BUT WAIT, there's more. Saturday night, we got a random text from Ricky. He asked "is anyone picking me up for church tomorrow?" :O We scrambled and found him a ride and he had a great experience at church. He wrote to different people "I have found a new home" and "I'm definitely coming back"... Miracles. :) I love you all! HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!
