Hi! This has been one of the most crazy weeks of my life. And now I can't even remember what I was going to tell y'all. Seriously my memory disappears the second I sit down at the computer. Its rough.
Alright alright alright... lets see... Okay I think I wrote everything down in my planner so I will take a look in there.... Okay... here we go...
Well this week was full of walking and let me tell you, I am sore and very much out of shape. Which is weird because I definitely thought I was in good shape. But now I am in better shape because we walked for three days straight. Wow, I am a wimp. Also my ADHD is very much showing through this email. My bad.
Alright so we saw some of our less actives this week. One of them is Rosita and she is the only member in her family. I guess she joined awhile back but didn't really understand what she was getting herself into. She acts like she gets everything but she thinks our church is just like all the other ones. We are helping her get through that though. Well here is a little miracle. She has a 13 year old daughter, I believe, and I guess she has been taking interested in doing personal progress. She had taken the lessons before but I guess they lost her focus and she stopped having interest. Butttttt now she wants to do personal progress so we will be meeting with her soon to help her with that. So there are some good prospects with that, and also I think it would help her mom have a stronger testimony if she heard the lessons over again. Especially if we are teaching a kid. I think sometimes missionaries expect adults to understand super deep doctrine when they only have such a shallow understanding of everything. So there shall be some progress with that family.
What else, okay Sister Spork got in with the Stake High Council but it seems like they are going to wait another month until her and the council meet again to officially decide. I honestly don't really know whats going on with that, but we still get to teach her and help her continue to progress in her testimony.
Oh this week we have two more potential investigators who we are going to go teach tonight. I can't remember if I already told y'all about this but there is a man in another ward who just got baptized and he lives basically in two different areas. So his daughters live in our area and he wants us to start teaching them. They are 10 and 13 and I guess they are really ready for baptism. We will be meeting them for the first time and committing them to baptism today so pray that it goes well.
Also we saw Michelle again this week and we hit sorta a rock wall. She really loves everything we are teaching and loves our values and she would be more than happy to be baptized. Plus she last week committed to stop drinking tea and coffee which she successfully did! But then as we taught her this week she was telling us about on of her life-long dreams. She wants to study the art of wine, and wine tasting. I guess she already has schooling and everything set up for her to go to Italy next year and get some type of profession in it. Wow I did not see that one coming. So basically she said she would be a Mormon but she would disregard the word of wisdom. AHHH!!!! She knows its true she just doesn't want to change that drastically!!! Any suggestions?
Also this week I took the coolest tours at the visitors center. One group seemed like they would be the most difficult group because it was a mixture of a bunch of different people of different backgrounds. One of the people in the group kept messing with me because they thought I have an accent and then there was a typical Utah fam bam with the most beautiful daughters and then there was this extremely weird lovey-dovey couple and then this super frail looking old lady and a family of hicks. Quite the tour. They all ended up getting along super well and the spirit was sooo strong! Plus the old lady was the fastest one in the group. She is from the Netherlands and was the cutest thing on the planet!!!!
I also got to take a bunch of youth tours which was sooo fun! They taught me one of the new dance steps called "the whip"??? I guess. It looked ridiculous. What are those famous people doing these days!?!?
Well the church is true family! I have yet to have a day pass by that I didn't see a miracle! One think I am especially grateful for is my parents. This Sunday is Fathers Day so shout out to the greatest father on the planet!!!!! He has taught me to look at the world in a different perspective and to recognize the good in life. Every night I continue to do Dad's tradition of "gratefuls" as I write in my journal!!!!!
I LOVE YOU FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!
