I got the letter from you and the picture from Caleb! And really liked them both.
This week we taught some solid lessons and it was a really nice week.
the G sisters: literaly coolest girls ever. They have been praying for their dad to let them get baptized and so have we! On Sunday he came to church for the 3rd hour to talk with the branch president and right when we walked in, a member was like woaah hey! They know each other from work and so we all talked to pres g and the dad basically said he would support them if they decide to get baptized! And that will be next week on April 27th! I am not good at describing how awesome they are but like if you could only meet them. You would also be in awe.
Mom and daughter: they came to church yesterday for the first time!!!!!! the daughter doesn’t believe in god and her mom is amazing. She has been reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it and feels like it’s right. She is just having an inner battle cause she has never heard of the Book of Mormon before but that’s okay cause now she has and she likes it. We had a lesson on Friday and brought an awesome member and it was so perfect. The mom was sad/worried cause her parents are super strong in another church and not happy about her leaving that church. But the Hermana who came to the lesson with us had a similar experience with her parents and bore really strong testimony about just her experience and like when we just keep going and be the example for our family it will all work out. We also watched part of president eyrings talk from general conference. In conclusion it was good and they came to church yesterday!!! And then we had to do like a ton of things so I just like asked a member if they could sit with her. And it turns out they were friends!!!!! They have known each other for so long and it just all went super well. They liked church and said they will come back next week!
G: knocked into her and she is related to one of the members. She reallly liked Joseph smiths first vision and said she would pray about it. We stopped by on Easter and sang to her and she liked that.
C: Referral from english missionaries. We taught her the restoration and she really liked it/ didn’t have crazy questions. She was like yea it all sounds true and commited to pray about it. She is looking for a church, but her husband isn’t so hot about going to church. She asked us to pray for him and we are going back on Wednesday. She is soooo spiritual and ready to be baptized.
And here’s some random highlights:
-we went to cold stone cause we are just embracing how fat we are and then someone paid for us!
-on Saturday we volunteered at this huuuge Easter egg hunt
-we got Thai food after which was delicious
-we helped a member do a lil family history and get her mom’s name ready to take to the temple
-we had lunch at one of the elders’ investigators house with all the elders, he is Cuban
-transfer letters come on Friday and i am in denial but I pretty much know I am leaving. Like if I don’t get transferred it will be a super happy surprise!
-we played vb for pday and I was the first Hermana to be picked haha
-okay also we were knocking doors at like 9 at night in a not so great area but all these kids were playing outside so they came up and talked with us and then I was like wanna come knock some doors and then I said just kidding really fast cause like what kid would ever want to go knock doors, but they said yes hahhaha and before we knew it they had picked a door and the lady let us in and we went in with all the kids hahhaha and she said she had been taught by missionaries im the past and that her house was our house
– happy Easter. Jesus is awesome and if you haven’t watched the lil movie called “because of him” http://easter.mormon.org , you should! I know that Jesus lives and that we all will too. We came to earth and got bodies to have trials and be tested and when we die we will be resurrected just like he was and it will be perfect and amazing and glorious and we can live with our families together. I know that’s true and I know that god loves you.
– HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!!!!!!!! ❤ <3h
