A Letter from Naches: Monday, June 24, 2013

Subject: Hello there Naches!

My goodness!!! Hello my dear family!! You would not believe how beautiful it is here in Naches! I got a sweet deal on this one. Pres. Greer truly loves me. Ha ha ;) But really I love it here! We live in a cabin with Brother and Sister Prest. They are just the best!! Goodness do I love them so. We got here on Wednesday and got all unpacked and Sister Prest fed us dinner and then took us out to see everything. We cover 4 towns: Gleed, Naches, Tieton, and Cowiche. It is a little overwhelming but it is also so much fun at the same time.  

There is a lot of work to be done but we are just taking it one day at a time. Missionaries haven't been here since January and they left the area book in a little bit of a mess. Ha ha It has been fun trying to get it all put together and organized. We have already seen some miracles since we have been here. 

On Thursday morning we got a call from a member in Idaho. We was in town visiting his friend Ken, that lives here in Cowiche. Ken's wife has terminal cancer and he is having just a really hard time. Brother Gram told us that he wanted us to come over and talk with Ken. We went over and talked to Ken a little about the Restoration and a little about the Plan of Salvation. Ken just cried the whole time we were talking to him. The spirit was so strong. We called the Elders to go with us to the nursing home where his wife is to give her a blessing of healing and comfort. It is just amazing. If we weren't there, I know the Lord would have taken care of Ken but the fact that we showed up just less then 24 hours before that is a miracle to me.

Another beautiful miracle that happened this week, our ward mission leader, Brother Moore, his wife is not a member and he has just be a member for only 3 years. He is on fire with missionary work! So his wife has been talking to him and telling him that she would love to get baptized. She has gone back and forth with the idea of joining the Church. Just a couple of weeks ago she told him that she wouldn't get baptized until the sisters came. Well last week they announced that there would be missionaries coming and they would be sisters. She just so happened to be sitting in the congregation that day. We got here and almost every single member has told us that we have been an answer to their prayers.

 I am just totally and completely speechless. It has been an amazing couple of days so far!! Great things are going to happen in this area. Proof that the Lord really does hear our cries. 

I love you all and hope that you have a fantastic week!! The church is true!! 

Love Sister Mecham
