April 20, 2015

Well, I never really thought this day would come! My last letter home. It's sobering, and very bittersweet. 

I cannot begin to describe how much I will miss the people here in Mexico and the work. I had no idea I had such capacity to love people!! I am excited to see you all though. My family is the greatest blessing that I have in this life. 

Mom, those plans sound fine, I'm sure I'll be feeling just fine, but I'll try to call you all from Houston if I get the chance. I love you all, and well.... see you tomorrow!

Well howdy, Y'all!!

Man this week could not have gone by faster.... I'll jump right into it but let me first say that I had NO idea about the masters tournament. I think that at this point in my mission I've just forgotten about everything haha. Who won? Sounds like you guys had quite the time down in St. George. I've become good friends with an Elder here who is from Bloomington, right close to where grandma and grandpa have their condo. Just another hook up we can have down there :). I'm so happy that Cam FINALLY got his patriarchal blessing. If it was anything like my experience, I'm sure it was a life-changing experience.

Well, we had a lot going on this week! We had zone conference with president this week. All of the missionaries here in this city got together in the stake center and we had a really nice meeting. The Jordans are finishing up their missions this summer as well, you can tell that it's a little sobering for them too. It was a very spiritual meeting, President Jordan talked a lot about the Savior's grace. Between the zone conference and President Uchtdorf's talk about grace in general conference, which I loved by the way, I think I've gained a greater understanding of the Grace of the Savior. I've seen it countless times over my mission, and my testimony of Him and His grace will be the my best souvenir that I'll be taking home with me.

We have some pretty sweet investigators right now. I haven't talked much about him, but we're teaching an 18 year old kid named Fabian. He's such a stud, he started investigating the church before we were here, even though there weren't any missionaries here in the area. He's gained such a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and the church. Yesterday, he even brought one of his friend's with him, and now SHE has a great interest in the church. The only bad thing is that she doesn't live here in our area. It's pretty awesome to see. He's already starting to prepare himself to go on a mission. I've come to love him, and I'll be sending pictures this next week of his baptism!! Aside from him we were able to teach that one lady that I talked about last time. Her interest keeps on growing and growing. We talked a little bit about the "blessing" that she's waiting for, and immediately the parable of the pearl of great price came to my mind. I'm anxiously waiting and hoping for the day that she realizes that this is that pearl of great price.

I hope you all know how much I love you! Things are going well here, and I can feel your love and prayers each and every day. Talk to you all next week!

Howdy everyone!

Man it sounds like you all had a good time watching conference, especially the part with the root beer floats and pizza for priesthood session! When I get home, we better go to the chapel to watch the priesthood session... I don't want to get rid of that tradition! But conference was great. I really enjoyed it, and I received many answers to the questions that I had. It was really weird to think that it was my last general conference in the mission. I think it's starting to actually hit me that I'm going home soon... It's gonna be tough I'll tell you that much. I have a great love for my mission.

This week was a good one! We started it off with a trip to the temple for my comp to get endowed. He was super excited, and it was a good experience for me to be his guide or whatever you call it. We had a great temple experience. The short time that we were here in our own area, we didn't get too much work done, but we did get a little bit. Right now it's basically spring break for everyone here. So NO ONE is around. like seriously! We did divisions, and Elder Tueller from Hawaii came here to my area with me. He's a stud and a good friend. We had a good time together, and found a couple of sweet investigators! 

My companion and I received a reference from other elders, so we went to contact her this week. We got there, and we were shouting for her to come out, but, even though it seemed like someone was home, no one was coming out. My companion, already a little distraught for the tough day we had had said, "Let's just get out of here, Elder, she obviously doesn't want to come out." I told him to wait just a minute, and that we would try a couple more times, and that she would come out. So we did, and she came out. She was really hesitant at first and looked like she didn't want anything from us, but she finally came out to where we were and started talking to us. She's a Catholic lady, but very spiritual. She said that she had kind of talked to missionaries before, but that it never turned into anything. We started talking about her family, and she told us that she's really struggling with her husband, and they're having some pretty big problems. She said that she's been praying and praying for help to know what to do, and that she felt that something big was waiting for her, something that she had been missing for a long time. I testified to that humble sister that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly that missing piece, and the Spirit testified very strongly to all of us. We're excited to go back and teach her this week!
Thanks for all the love and support everyone. I love you all tremendously. Thank you for all the prayers, I can feel them and I know that Heavenly Father is blessing me.

Well Well well.... it seems like just one week ago that I was here at the computer writing you guys! haha. Well, things are going well! We did a lot of good work this week. Still trying to get a hang of things in the new area but we're getting there! This week was full of meeting a lot of new people, like members and stuff, and meeting new investigators, or old investigators that were listening to the missionaries before they took the missionaries out of this area. We have this one investigators here named Fabian. In the time that there were no missionaries here in the area, he started investigating the church because his girlfriend is a member, and he started receiving the missionary lessons from other Elders in one of the close wards. We got here, and he was basically already ready! We've got a baptismal date with him for the 16th of April. He's already planning on serving a mission after he has a year as a member! It's been a great blessing to teach him.

So, yes, Mom, I will be coming home the 8th of June. I just got all my travel plans today in my email actually. Wow, that was weird to see let me tell you. I'll be arriving in Salt Lake at approximately 4:37 p.m. on June 8th--e haha. The city that I'm in right now is a pretty big city, it's actually the capital of the state of Tamaulipas. So yeah they have a couple of hospitals here in the city, one that's in our area actually.

Sam's going to Arkansas? .......... that's way smooth.

We're getting really excited for General conference this weekend! Weird to think that it'll be my last general conference in the mission. But it'll be great! I'm sorry I didn't have tons to write today, but I'm doing good and doing all that I can to finish strong. I love this work, I love my Savior, and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else in the world right now. Love you all!!!

Now that Mom isn't gonna start off her emails like that, someone has to right? 

Well well well.... here we are again! This week was a shorter one than usual with getting to our area late last week, but it was a good one! Elder Aviles and I are doing really good together... he's brand new, and he's still got a lot to learn, but he's a quick learner and reminds me a lot of when I trained Elder Delgado a little over a year ago. haha they are SO similar it's ridiculous... So that's why I think it wasn't a coincidence that I was paired with him. But we're doing great! We got lost a few times in our area this week, but I feel like we've pretty much learned it now. 

It is AMAZING to see how the Lord is hastening his work. There were no missionaries in this area for the last 4 and a half months, and the members were dying to get missionaries in the ward again. We show up, and everyone starts passing out references and they all want to accompany us to go and visit people and we already have a couple of baptisms lined up for the upcoming month or so! Haha I've really been enjoying myself because it seems like everything is just falling into our laps!! hahaha. Like, for example, on Saturday we had the idea to visit a few different people, like old investigators and less actives and stuff like that, but they ended up not being there, but almost at every house that we went to, someone else called out to us and wanted to talk to us. Neighbors, family members of neighbors, random people on the streets.... haha it seemed like everyone was contacting us. It was great... my companion was amazed and was like, "Wow, missionary work is so easy!" hahah... I'm sure we'll get a reality check here soon but for now, we're enjoying ourselves. :)

I'm feeling good healthwise... Haven't had any annoyances or anything. I've been feeling normal. I try to take it easy, like I don't do exercise in the mornings and stuff, and I'm not drinking any soda. So I've been feeling good. For what it's worth. 

I really wish I could send you all photos of me and my new companion, but I left my camera in the mission offices... so I've gotta wait a few days to be able to pick it up.

Make someone's day today! Be an answer to someone's prayer. Love you all dearly!!

Every week that I open an email from Mom, that's the headline that I read, so I thought I'd make it a two way deal. Sounds like things are going well! I'm really glad to hear that! Cameron wrote me, and he was telling me how much he enjoys teaching the gospel and preparing himself for a misison. I thought, wow... I wonder how different my mission would have been if I could have learned to love mission prep. Haha I love love love my mission--don't get me wrong, but I think it could have made a difference for me. I'm proud of you, Cam. 

Mom, I'm feelin well. REALLY. haha I really haven't had any pain lately. I've been feeling good. My question is, what does the doctor over there think, because the doctor here that sent that diagnosis letter or whatever said that I would need some sort of surgery... did the doctor say that that surgery would be necessary? But don't worry about me mom... everything is going good and I will tell you if I start to feel bad.

I'm writing on Wednesday because we had transfers this week! They finally took me out of my last area. I absolutely loved that place, but I think that I was ready for a change. 6 months in one area for me was plenty. There were a lot of people that greatly influenced my life and I will forever be grateful to them. But now, I am training again. I'm training a Puerto Rican named Elder Aviles. He is a stud, and he speaks perfect English which is kinda fun! haha he loves to speak to me in English and not in Spanish. . I'm excited, he's excited... it's gonna be a good change. 

I can't believe this is going to be my last area. I hope to be able to make the most of it. Thank you for all the prayers and support. I love you guys with all my heart.

Ha wow--I can't believe that Sam is already home! Sooo nuts! He really doesn't look any different! But that's so awesome to hear that he did well in his homecoming. I'm looking forward to seeing him and catching up on old times! haha.

We really had a good week this week. I've grown to love the people from these two wards soo much over the time that I've been here. We've still got another week until transfers, but I'm gonna miss these people like crazy. I honestly think that one of the greatest blessings of my mission has been to make relationships with such special people like those that we serve. For me that includes investigators, members, non members, and other missionaries. To be able to share the joy of the gospel with those people is one of the greatest blessings of being a missionary. And like Sam said, being angels to them as they are to us.

About a week and a half ago, we found a new family to teach! They were a reference from another family here in the ward. It's been a very interesting experience with them so far. We found them, and taught the mom, the dad, and the daughter. Later that same week, we met the daughter-in-law, too. The father and his son, who we hadn't really met up to that point in time, work in the oil business. They're gone 20 days and are here 10 days. So the father left to work, and the son was already working when we started to teach this family. But out of nowhere, the son had an accident at work and had to come home to recuperate. In that same weekend that he came home, he was able to attend church with his wife and his sister! We told him that it was no coincidence that God had allowed him to be at home to attend church with his sister and his wife. They are a great family and we are super stoked to continue teaching them!!

I'm really glad to hear that everything is going well back home. I'm doing absolutely fantastic :) Thank you thank you thank you for all the prayers and the love and support. I couldn't do without it. LOVE YOU ALL

¡Que hubole!

Well hey everybody! Wow, exciting things going on these days! So if Cam puts in his papers in two months, he would be getting his call like right around the time that I get home, right? Wow that's pretty incredible.... So much is going on!!  I literally can't believe that Sam is already home! Good night that is crazy.... I  haven't kept in touch with him for about the last year, so when you see him will you tell him to write me please?

Well well well... this week flew by! Elder Hernandez and I are doing great! He's been an awesome companion! It seems like we've been together forever now... ha and it has been a while, like 4 months! But we enjoy working together and we've seen many incredible things together. I'm not gonna lie, I'm not too used to being in an area for so long, and so it's been kinda rough for me to think of new things to do with the members and to find new investigators and stuff. But, with that said, we had the mission counsel meeting this week and they gave us a whole bunch of "new" ideas of things to do. But they aren't really new, many of them are just the basic things that we should already be doing but that sometimes we overlook. So I know that my time here in this area is really short, only a couple more weeks, but I think we've got some good work we've got to get done.

We had a great lesson with Betty this week. It was very spiritual, and she FINALLY committed to be baptized!! It seems likes she's finally made the decision to be baptized the 14th of March, right before I leave the area! We are hoping and praying more than ever that she follows through with this decision, although it does seem that she is more decided and definitely ready to take the next step. Please, keep her in your prayers!!

I'm doing great health-wise. Zero problems lately! The kidney stones haven't bothered me at all, and I'm feeling good! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your prayers. I love you guys so much!! Good luck this week!

This week was good. I couldn't believe how fast it went by. We had interviews with President this week on Tuesday. It was good, I just had a quick simple interview with him, haha. But we got some cool news here, they're gonna be playing Meet the Mormons here in Mexico! I think like 70 movie theaters over the whole country will be playing the movie. The premier is this Friday. (Obviously, we're not going) But President put on the movie for us! It was awesome, I really liked it. I think it's gonna be great for the community and a lot of people are gonna be interested in knowing more about us.

We went on divisions a few times this week. Once with the assistants, and once with one of the District leaders here in the zone. They both went really well. I enjoyed them. Elder Bartholomew and I had fun together, it was one of those days where it just seemed like everyone was contacting US! Ha it was kinda weird, but occasionally it happens.

Our investigators are doing well. Rosa, not so well. She keeps coming to church and all, but she's really shying away from making a decision on getting baptized or not. Betty told us this week that she's about 97% sure about her decision to be baptized, but she wants to be 100%. We're soooooo close with her. One of our other investigators, a nine year old kid named Luis got baptized on Saturday. He was so pumped!  It was a good experience. Betty went, and I think she liked it as well. All in all, it was a good week. I'm trying to send pictures... but the computer doesn't really want me to.

Congrats, Mom, on your primary program and job review thing and stuff! :) Love you all.

Cam got his wisdom teeth out?? HA that's awesome! I really wish I could see what he was like when he was all drugged up... but the video that you forwarded me, Mom, doesn't work.

KIDNEY STONE UPDATE: So they haven't really bothered me much this week. At the beginning of the week it was bothering me a little bit, but not so much now. I had an appointment with the Doc on Friday. He gave me good news and maybe not so good news. But mostly good news. He said that where the stones are located, as long as I don't do anything too crazy, they shouldn't bother me too much. They found in the CAT scans that the tube that comes out of my kidney is shut off. Not completely, but it doesn't allow normal liquid flow. He said it's a birth defect, and that I will need surgery to remove the stones and to open the tube. He said that I could last anywhere from a few month to a year without having the surgery, but that sooner or later, I'll have to have it. So ya, there's that :)

This week was a good week for us though. We were happy to be back to working basically normally, apart from a little rest that we had to take at the beginning of the week. We're having good experiences with our investigators. Luis, the nine year old kid, is gonna get baptized this Saturday.  Rosa, should be getting baptized next Saturday! We're still waiting on Betty, all she needs is to receive her answer, and feel more sure about it, and she'll also get baptized! I know that God will give her that answer that she needs.

My testimony continues to grow of how God knows and loves each one of his children, and that he answers the prayers of those who strive to serve him. We have this older sister in our ward, Hermana Treto, who is around 75 years old. She struggles to get around and lives with her daughter and son in law. The other day we were in their colony, with no plans to visit her or her family, but we felt impressed to go and visit them. We stopped by, and Sister Treto says to us, "Oh, I'm so glad you came! I really needed some comfort. I was all alone and scared." I couldn't help but smiling, because this was the second time that almost this exact same thing has happened with her! She is just the most faithful sister ever. Without complaint, she always goes to the temple, and rallies the other brothers and sisters of the ward to go to the temple as well. She's just great.

Well family, I love you all soo much. Please don't worry about me. I'm doing fine! Thank you so much for your prayers. Have a great week!!

Hey everyone!

Man, well this week was a roller coaster! I never knew having kidney stones could be so much fun!! Haha I just want to say thank you so so much to all of you back home for all the prayers and get well wishes. I can feel them all the way down here in Mexico! I'm glad to be out of the hospital... I hate being stuck in the hospital in the mission field! It's terrible. But these last few days I've been taking it a little easy. I'm doing just fine, I don't want you all to worry about me. Everything will be fine! :)

Anyways, we had a fairly uneventful week besides the whole kidney stone incident (which was fairly eventful, might I add). We spent a lot of time working on the material for our zone plan and for the zone class that we had to teach. But we did get a little bit of working time in. We were super happy, because we had a total of 5 investigators show up to church yesterday! Betty, who we are still working with, Luis, who is a 9 year old kid whose parents are starting to get active again, Socorro, a newish investigator of ours, Rosa, who we've been teaching for a while now, and another guy named Francisco that was visiting from a different part of town. 

We were super excited to see Socorro show up! We found her about 3 weeks ago when we went out to do some visits with the stake president. At the time, she said she was not interested in learning anything about the church. She said that she had talked with the missionaries before, but that they couldn't answer her questions. She lost interest, and cut ties with the missionaries and the church. And so now, a few years later, here we are! She's seeing that her questions are being answered and is showing a lot of interest! She had told us that she didn't want anything to do with churches, but when she went to church yesterday, she told us that she liked it! She's progressing really well, and we have high hopes for her!

That's about all I have to say this week. It was great to talk to you, Mom. You're my favorite. Please don't worry about me, if anything happens, you guys will know right away. Much love! Thanks for everything! Share the gospel!

How's it going, family?? Mom, your last letter made me think a lot about my testimony of Joseph Smith and the Restoration. This week I had a lot of opportunities to bear that testimony and strengthen the testimonies of others as well. It was kinda interesting to see!

Holy the super bowl is already over? Good night! Who won? Who played? Hey say Hi to the Seelys for me please!

We had a solid week here! Pretty calm, not too much went on! The transfer cycle just ended today, and I'm staying in my area with Elder Hernandez! Haha we've been together for a while now but we're gonna keep it going! We're actually really excited to be able to see a couple of baptisms that we should have coming up.

 This week we were really focused on finding new people to teach. On Thursday, we said a specific prayer that we could find someone looking for the truth. We left, and we went to eat at a really small restaurant. We had been to this place before, and the people were friendly, but we had never actually had the opportunity to meet them. As we were waiting for our order, we started to talk to one of the ladies that worked there. She asked us an interesting question. She said, "What do you need to do to become a missionary?" We explained the process of how mission preparation goes, and that question lead to other questions. In the end, she started to tell us how she was Christian, and that she hasn't congregated anywhere, but that she was always curious about what we taught. We explained the Book of Mormon, and how she can draw closer to her Savior by reading it. She was impressed, and truly showed interest in the message! It wasn't until we left and had placed an appointment to go back that we realized that she was really an answer to our prayers!

I'm thankful for a Father in Heaven who listens to my prayers, even though sometimes I don't understand how it's done, but I know he listens and responds. Thanks for the love and support that I need, I wish you all a happy week!

How's it going everyone?  I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing well! Lindsey, be careful out there. I had no idea uncle Rick died! I don't think I ever knew him, did I? That's too bad, my prayers go out to the Myers family! I hope Grandma Webb is doing alright. About those goals, Mom, give me like a week to think about it and if you remind me next week I'll let you know.

Wellp... This week went by incredibly fast. I was sick on Thursday. I think I ate a bad taco. But miraculously, I was only down for one day! The next day, I was fine! We spent a lot of time this weekend making a plan for our zone for this upcoming month. We're getting excited! But I think that might be part of the reason that it went by so fast. We went on divisions again this week. This time we went with Elder Grover and his companion, Elder Casco. I went out to Elder Grover's area. I had been on divisions with Elder Grover once before, and once again we had a really good time together. He's become a good friend, and we had some good experiences teaching some of their investigators. 

Here in our own area, we had a decent week. We had Betty's baptismal interview this Saturday. I think it was a good experience for her, but she didn't pass the interview! We were kinda confused why, but she told us, "I couldn't tell the interviewer that I knew that Joseph Smith was a true prophet... because I don't know it. I want to be sure about it before I get baptized." That kinda hit us, like, why didn't we think of talking about that more?! It was an interesting experience though. All this time teaching her, we've focused on all the doctrines of the church. You name it, we touched on it. But only in the first lesson did we touch on the source of all of the doctrines of the church, Joseph Smith and the Restoration of the Gospel. Everything that we teach, live, and practice depends totally on the Restoration of the Gospel through the Prophet. I testify that obedience to ALL of the restored principles of the gospel brings peace and joy and gladness in our lives. How can such blessings be denied? If the fruit be good, how can the tree from which it stemmed be bad? Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know it. I know that God knows that I know it. And I cannot deny it.

This is the last week of the transfer cycle! Kinda crazy. I'm really hoping to stay here in the area to be able to see Betty's baptism. Thank you all for your love and support. I couldn't ask for a better family.

Hey Hey Hey!

Mom, since you didn't write me very much this week, I'm not gonna write you very much either. Nah I'm just kidding.... I'll just use that as an excuse because I don't have much to write about either. Also, forgive me, the USB port on my computer doesn't work so I won't be sending any pictures today, even though I've got some pretty sweet ones to send. What's a guy gotta do to find a decent USB port these days.

I hope everyone is doing well!! Safe travels to Lindsey back to Massachusetts. We are officially no longer in a threesome. They sent Elder Smith to a different area with another missionary who had special changes with his companion. It was on Friday, we were just in the house studying as a companionship, I believe, when we received a call from the assistants. "Is Elder Smith there?" they asked me. And I was like... great. I totally know what this is for. Ha.  So right then and there he got his stuff ready and we headed straight out to the mission offices. We were all pretty sad. We were having a great time together with him in our companionship. But he's in a better place now. hahaa.

This week we were couped up in house almost all week. Elder Hernandez's cold started to turn into bronchitis, so we had to rest from tuesday until Sunday, basically, with a few hours of work here and there. It was a little boring honestly.... we just stayed home and read! And played UNO (thank you, mom.... thank you. That game really saved us). But, the good news is that Elder Hernandez is doing well now. Seems to have overcome his sickness. So this week we should be able to work like normal! I don't really have any experiences to share with you all this week... I read like the whole New Testament.... that was pretty much my big achievement of the week.

Well family of mine that I love very much, I hope you all have a great week and that all of your dreams come true. Much love coming at all of you from Mexico! I thank you for your prayers!!

I've gotta start out by saying, Mom, that's kind of a weird coincidence that you mentioned about sharing the story of Mary and Martha in your Primary calling. This week there was a Relief Society activity in one of our wards, and they asked us to go and share a thought. They were there learning how to cook and sew and whatever, so we shared with them that same story about Mary and Martha. Just wanted to let you know....

ANYways what's goin on everyone! Woaahh congrats congrats to Cam for getting the call from the golf coach from BYU Hawaii! I'm so proud of him! That'll be way sick. Hope everything turns out good! I've heard of Elder Skow... never met him. But one of these days I'm sure I'll run into him! Ha I can't believe Nick is already home! Again! Send him my best. We usually keep in touch but still.

We had a pretty cool week this week! It went by wayyy fast. But we had a couple of memorable experiences. We have this one investigator, I think I told you about her on Christmas, her name is Betty. She's been progressing really well, doing everything from reading to praying to going to church. But she's been afraid to accept a baptismal date. So, we decided to teach her about the temple this week, and we got this idea to take her to the temple and teach her there. What better visual aid than the temple itself right? So we went, and let me tell ya, it was an unforgettable experience. I've had few experiences as spiritual as that one in my life. We were able to go inside and teach her in the waiting room, and there was such a calm, peaceful spirit there. We didn´t hardly do or teach much, we basically just sat back and let the spirit take over. We got to the point where she said, trying to describe how she felt, "I feel an incredible peace. Its... indescribable. I've never felt anything like it before." At that moment, we extended to her the baptismal invitation, and put a goal for the 31st of Jan.  And she accepted! She finally accepted! Ahh man it was awesome. I'm so thankful for the temple, and for the place of peace and refuge that it is, and I know that it is the Lord´s house, and that His spirit resides there.

Elder Hernandez got a little sick this week... He came down with the cold. Elder Smith and I have, for the moment, not caught anything. Fingers crossed for this week. But we're doing excellently well. Much love coming to all of you from Mexico! Shout out to my mission president's wife, Sister Jordan, because I know she reads my blog sometimes! :) Catch you all next week!

January 6, 2015

Hey Hey Hey!!

How's it going everybody!! I'm writing on Tuesday because we decided to go to the temple as a zone today. So we had to change our P-day from yesterday to today. But here I am, doin well and livin it up! haha. We had a good time at the temple today as a zone. For me, it's special being a missionary and being able to go the temple. A place where I can go to receive more revelation and feel the spirit even stronger than usual.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I tried to tell as few people as possible about my birthday, so there weren't any festivities or anything like that. However, I did buy a new camera with the money that you guys and other family member sent me. Thanks a bunch! (I know it's like my 4th camera in the mission but I think this one will last for Cam, too, plus it wasn't very expensive). But I really appreciate it. My teenage years are over. That's kinda weird to think.... It's kinda funny tho, because people here ask me how old I am all the time, and I always tell them to guess. They almost always say like 25 or 26... haha so at least I can tell them now that I'm in my 20's ;)

This week was fun! Not for New Year's or anything... honestly we didn't do much. It gets a little crazy here around new year's eve and new year's day so for safety reasons we go home a little early and, ya! Literally impossible to sleep though... Fireworks here are crazy. They're super cheap and there are like no restrictions on them so everyone goes way overboard on the fireworks ALL NIGHT LONG. But it's starting to calm down now :)

I think a little while ago I told you all about Rosa, one of our investigators that was progressing. She stopped going to church about a month and a half ago, and for about the same amount of time, we stopped seeing her. But, Sunday, basically out of the blue, she showed up to church! We were stoked! She seemed excited again! And we had no idea why! haha. But we went by to visit her yesterday and we asked her why she had decided to go to church again. She said, "Do you remember what you told me about asking and praying to know if it was true? Well, I did that. And I know it's true."  We were like... WHATTTT!!! Totally caught me off gaurd but I'm so thankful for that little seed that was planted in her heart that was able to sprout and grow to the point of knowing the truth of this gospel! It was an awesome experience. We're hoping she gets baptized within the next month or so!

I love you, family. Thanks for all the love and support you give me. I hope you all have a fantastic week!!
