Week 19

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a great week!  This week wasn't all too exciting for us.  On Monday we needed to get a new tire because we had a crack in the wall so that was fun to wait for while writing letters!  Then we tried to see people but didn't have any lessons that night.  Then Tuesday we went to another car shop to get our brakes looked at because they sounded awful.  I don't know cars, but I could tell something was wrong.  So they "adjusted" it for 3 hours then as we left we heard the terrible noise again.  So then Wednesday we had District Meeting that went well, then were able to have two lessons with less-active members in the ward.  Then Thursday we had exchanges and I was able to stay in our area which was fun, but we had to go in to the mission home to find out I had received a speeding ticket, then we talked to Elder Williams about the car, then was told we needed to take it to Toyota.  So then we needed rides from members to dinner then to an art walk in downtown Scottsdale.  So at the Art Walk, we just walked around looking at some of the art and trying to talk to everyone and anyone that would listen to us!  We talked to many different people and one we were able to give a Book of Mormon to.  We were talking to him about the gospel and brought up the Book of Mormon and said "can I have one?" then right after said "I can't believe I just asked for one" haha it was funny.  The spirit talks to everyone!  It's a fact!  ;)  Then we walked home and talked to another man along the way who thinks that the LDS church is a business.  I get such a good laugh out of all of these comments!  Then Friday was AMAZING!!  We were able to meet with Maria because we had seen her Thursday and set up a return appointment.  We brought a member with us who had gone to the first lesson about 4 months ago.  So in the beginning, she said she had decided she wasn't going to be baptized anymore (she has been baptized into 3 different churches).  Then as we listened to her concerns and understood what she wasn't understanding.  So after resolving her concerns, Sister Krutsch was able to invite her to be baptized and she said YES!!!  We were so excited!!  She said "and I'm going to do it the right way this time" because we had explained the priesthood authority. Well, that was all great until she didn't come to church on Sunday so we don't know what will happen....we hope that everything is okay.  Then Saturday we drove an hour and a half up to Payson for a baptism that Sister Krutsch had been a part of teaching.  It was a great baptism and I felt very fortunate to be able to participate in it!  Then Sunday was rough because like I said, Maria didn't come to church and some of our less-actives didin't come either.  But We are still hoping for those miracles to come around the corner!  I hope you all are able to feel daily strength from our Father in Heaven who loves us all so very much!  I hope you all have a great week!
