Week 39

Hello Everyone!

These past few days have been good!  There isn't much to tell, but it's been good because serving the Lord is ALWAYS good! :)  So Wednesday night we taught a sweet lady named Betty.  She was actually first contacted by Sister Heap!  So almost a year and a half ago!  We followed-up on our commitment to read the Book of Mormon.  She hadn't really read much, so we read the first two chapters with her.  I think it helped her a lot and I think reading with her will help a lot as well, because it can be a little confusing if you aren't used to it.  Anyway, she is a sweetheart and I love her and hope that she progresses to baptism one of these days!  Then Thursday we taught Jack about the Plan of Salvation and it was a very long lesson....he soaks everything up that we teach him.  And he is almost done with reading the Doctrine and Covenants, so he had a lot of questions for us!  Then Friday we did weekly planning all day and talked with the other sisters about our plan of attack to get our ward members involved in missionary work.  We will still be working out kinks to better motivate our members, but I think we are starting in a good place.  Then Friday night was the best.  So, we had a lesson with Marie at 6:30 but we were a couple of minutes early, and she wasn't home.  We didn't want to leave so we walked over to Josiah's so that we could talk to people along the way if we saw anyone.  We actually did talk to a lady who we see around the complex a lot, but haven't really had a conversation with her.  She was a really neat lady, and maybe one day she will let us talk about the gospel!  Then we saw Josiah and had a good visit with him.  Then we walked back to Marie's and she opened the door and starting ranting about how we were an hour and a half late and she was only 10 minutes late, but we asked where she had been and she had actually been in the hospital.  Anyway, it's funny because she was looked happy to see us but was trying to get mad at us at the same time, and we think she has some mental problems but is pretty there.  Anyway, it was pretty exciting.  It was good to know how much she cares about us!  And she actually came to Sacrament meeting on Sunday which was awesome!!  Then Saturday morning we went out with the other sisters to do what we call "member teachings".  We taught two different families how they can participate in missionary work, and it was good!  Then that afternoon we were busy with studies and more planning.  Then that night we saw James and Jeremy because they weren't at our appointment we had set on Thursday.  Then we had our scripture class that night and we talked about how to find answers for yourself in the scriptures.  I think it went really well!  Then Sunday was good!  We had the boys and Marie at church and ALL of our recent converts came which is exciting to see that retention!  Other than that, nothing really happened.  It's been a good week, and Sister Lords and I have recommitted to being consecrated missionaries.  This happens a lot, but we honestly have to recommit almost daily!  Anyway, I'm really excited to see what this week brings!  I love you all and hope you have a great week!!

 So...I finally wore my hair down and it's getting so long so I had to take a pic of it!

I love my companion Sis. Lords!!
