Getting Transferred Wednesday!!

Hey everyone this week has been pretty good. We have a couple new people to teach. Cedric is Baptist from California and was super receptive to what we have to say. He wanted to come to church and get a copy of the book of Mormon and was willing to meet with us again.

 We saw Jack who is 9 and his mom is inactive and grandpa excommunicated who lives with them. When we went to visit Jack we taught him the Plan of Salvation and his grandpa was sitting next to him and leaning foward to look at everything we were showing Jack. It was kind of funny when I told Jack that when he was in the spirit world and resurrected that he would look his prime, probably 25 and so would his grandpa so they would be the same age. His grandpa got this sheepish grin on his face and eyes got really big. 

 We have been teaching a lady named Rhonda and we invited to be baptized and had already thought about it. She then told us that she still had some cleaning house to do such as quitting smoking. She told us how grateful she had been to the members around her that were so sincere in their efforts to helping her and how much that reflected on the church. 

 Anyways, I'm getting transferred on Wednesday. I'm not sure where I'm getting transferred only that it's a busy area and a driving area. I am somewhat relieved since it's really cold this time of year to not be in a driving area.

Teaching 2 Young Women at Heritage School

Her Most Recent Picture

"We had a baptism on Saturday. The girl Paige's family has been inactive. Her older sister got baptized because she asked to and now Paige (11) is following in her footsteps. 

Sister Haderlie Paige's mother bore her testimony at the baptism and her parents have been inactive. We've noticed that her dad has slowly been softening towards us, since he was kind of sarcastic to us when we first started coming over. So that's good!

 We worry about the girls at Heritage. Two of them really want to get baptized, but can't because the school won't let them until they're 18. But we worry that right now they are surrounded by good people, but when they are released to go home they're families are not exactly good influences.

I'll be getting transferred within two weeks. Today after emails we are going to go play laser tag by Smith's. All of our investigators have been getting baptized so are low on investigators right now. We are looking for more referrals since our numbers are low."

Another Baptism :)

Hey yall. 

 Well this week we thought we had Carbon Monoxide poisoning since our Carbon Monoxide alarm went off twice. So we packed up our stuff and slept at the other sisters' apt in our district. The gas company came the next day to check it out and I guess it was a false alarm, but we were all pretty sure that we were dying from it because we'd all been pretty sick. I guess it was just the weather and flu going around. 

 We had a baptism this week. Diana has been coming to church activities for about 7 years, she's in her 50's. She finally came around to getting baptized. 

 We walked around BYU campus today and saw an art exhibit at BYU. They have some famous European art there temporarily on loan for a couple months. The exhibit is free, but you do have to get tickets online if any of you are interested.

 Well that's pretty much been our week. Nothing way too exciting. Hope you're all doing well.
