So I got the news about uncle Jim. I am sad to hear that. He was a great man. Very patient with an inquisitive young niece. I loved spending time with him every time that we had a chance. I'll miss him. I hope Aunt Patrice is doing alright! I send my Love!
This week has been strange for us as a companionship. We are doing great together. but in one of our areas almost every lesson kept falling through. and since the areas are 15-30 minutes apart it is a little hard to just oh lets go here....... We don't have the time for that. when we make an appointment it is serious. because the areas are so far apart. We have been letting our investigators know that and so with them the canceled lesson are actually growing fewer and fewer in between. So we have been blessed that way. And we are gaining more and more potentials every week. some with a lot of promise. We are having a baptism this saturday! A sweet young girl I will try and send some pics next week!
Oh so there are little evil plants here called goat heads. They are a little sticker like thing with a sharp point well I got one in one of my bike tires. it went flat. Silly thing did it not know that I needed to use my Bike! I then borrowed a members till I could fix it on Monday. Well Then Hermana Collins got it in both of her tires. Well there goes the bikes! Well the bishop heard about it and well asked/told us to bring our tires to him. so we did and well guess what. he went and took them up to a bike shop and got them fixed for us. With heavy duty tubes and liners! Told us not to worry about the cost. It was the least he could do to help out the missionaries! That was so sweet! I plan on sending a thank you letter soon! So we are now on our bikes and I just have to watch out for my other tire and make sure that nothing happens to it!
So we have had quite a few good things happen this week. We found a new Investigator who is just thirsting for the gospel. she is wanting to know. and is desiring baptism. We have invited her to read and think about what it would mean for her. She is prepared. Or as some of the Elders like to put it "legit". I am so excited for these areas! They are growing. Slowly yes, but they are growing!
I am also learning just how much of a tool preach my Gospel is. It helps with everything! I am learning so much these past few weeks on how to be a better missionary! I love it!!!!! We are doing Church tours here. and they are just amazing! You can feel the spirit so strongly! I love being out here and just truly learning what the work that God has for each of us truly is!
Glad to hear how things are at home! That is so exciting for Alyssa! You"ll have to let me know where! No wait ask her to write and tell me when she knows! Cause I want to write her!!!! No I did not see Sister Miller, was way to busy and we went to Church in Warden this last week, so nope! I got your card today Daddy! Thank you so much I love it! Great to hear that pageant people asked after me! Is there anyway that I could write a few? Do you know or..... Sister Donaldson and I have shared stories of our pageant experiences. So much fun!!!! I will try to send some pictures next week. no guarantees though!
Love you all!
Wish you all well and I will pray for the Family,
Con Mucho amor y esperanza,
