It is so nice to hear from me again huh? ;) hehe just kidding. It's always nice to hear from all of you tho :) so this week...was AWESOOOOME! Which is funny cuz last week I was pretty sure it was gonna be a not so awesome week. It started out kinda crummy. But it got better. Our key indicator numbers are going up and we're continuing to see progress in our investigators!
We put one of our new investigators on date this last week! She is the sweetest little old lady and just loves the missionaries. She just really wants to come closer to Christ. My favorite part of teaching her this last week was when we were telling her about how our church is patterned exactly how Jesus Christ established His church. And then we went on to talk about the priesthood and restoration. Then we told her how we had a prophet today and he called 12 apostles and her face just beamed! You could see her realizing that that's exactly how Jesus Christ had done it. Man, one of my favorite parts of the week. But yeah, she came to church yesterday and just ate it up. She's so cute. Yesterday we taught our other investigator on date, but it was funny cuz we were talking about how there is no such thing as coincidences and God gives us exactly what we need. Then we started talking about platypuses and how they are not a coincidence, God put them on earth for a reason! hahaha so funny. But besides that, the lesson went real real good :)
Also we went and visited a less-active yesterday..which is..we don't know if she's a less active or not. She's on our ward roster but she doesn't seem to know that she was baptized into our church ever. So it's confusing. But I had my bag sitting on my lap close to my tummy, and it was really dark in the room. So she turned to me and asked me when my baby was due. ha I was so confused and then realized she thought my bag was my tummy!! hahahaha it was so funny.
Let's see...I don't know what else has really happened this week. Not a lot, other than I'm being eaten alive. Bugs just love my savory blood I suppose. I will try to actually send some pictures this week. Not many are of me..sorry. I don't take a whole lot of pictures. Maybe later.
But I love you all and I just love love being a missionary!!! It's the bestest thing ever!! The church is true, the book is blue and..so are you :)
