Week 66

Hello Everyone!!!

So, this week has been very busy!!  On Tuesday we went down to Payson for Zone Conference, so we left after studies and got back at 7:30 and then did our shopping.  The Zone Conference was soooo good I loved it!  We talked about finding families, and having the faith to actively search for families to teach.  We also received just good information from our mission president, he is an amazing man!  Then we also had some instruction on a program that was installed into our car which tracks our driving.  So, hopefully we have a lot less speeding, accidents, etc. in our mission!  Then Then on Wednesday we were able to see Stephanie which was awesome!  She is such a sweetheart!  We had a really good visit with her Wednesday, then went back on Thursday to teach her the Restoration!  It was a really good lesson and we invited her to baptism but she said that she would pray about it!  That's all that we can ask for, but she has a really sincere heart, and wants to learn more and do the right thing.  She even picked up the Book of Mormon Wednesday night after we gave it to her!  Yay!!  So, we are excited about her!  And her boyfriend had some good input as well, and it was really good to see that he remembers a lot about the gospel and really believes it too.  On Thursday we were able to teach a less-active lady the Restoration right after teaching Stephanie.  Let me tell you, we taught the exact same doctrine, but it was a totally different lesson.  It was so cool to step back after her lesson and see how different the Holy Ghost speaks through us to teach these people so differently.  I knew that before, but we taught those lessons right after each other, so it was cool to see them almost right by each other and to see the comparison.  It was a neat lesson that Heavenly Father taught me about how the Holy Ghost guides us in our lessons.  Anyway, Sunday was a pretty cool day.  We had a special Stake Conference that was announced a few weeks ago.  We had President Richard J. Maynes from the Presidency of the Seventy come and speak to us, along with Elder Frost.  We had a really neat meeting, and I'm hoping that it helped our members to have a greater motivation to participate in missionary work!  He told a cool story about 4 people involved in a story that brought a lady to the gospel.  The point he made was that those people involved had to be in tune to the spirit in order to be a link in the story.  It was just super neat, and his question was "will you be the missing link in a story, or will you do all you can to be in tune to the spirit?"  It was just really cool.  Then we were busy in the afternoon, and after dinner we had a missed call from Kilee, asking when we could teach her the other lessons.  We felt really bad because we didn't know how to get a hold of her and so we hadn't set up a lesson this past week.  Well we happened to have just enough time to head over right then and teach her the Plan of Salvation!  It went really well and she is just so sweet!  We hope to get her on date this week, we are just still waiting on her mom.  But, things are going well, and it's just so fun to be able to see the little miracles in the day!  I hope that you all have a great week!  I love you all!!

 This isn't the best picture, but it was so pretty on the way down to the valley yesterday!  We went through Globe because there was snow on the Rim.
 So, last transfer we got zone hoodies!  We thought they turned out pretty fun! :)
One of our moving adventures, the Taylor District has become pro at moving! ;)
