Hey Everyone! I feel so bad I haven't had the chance to email until now. we drove over to the library on Monday and it was closed on memorial day :( we have been so busy that right now is literally the only time we have had to do it! We don't even have time for lunch most days we are so busy :) its a good thing.
It sounds like you all had a bunch of fun camping. it was crazy to think this last week that school got out! haha I can just imagine kaden will all the ladies. I am so glad you got the phone call from the lady in my ward. she is so awesome! we almost ended up moving in with them at the beginning of last transfer. I love the outfit that grandma got me! i am actually wearing it today :) it has a really cool pocket on it that i can stick my mormon.org cards in.
To give you a little update for the week...well i can't. It just has been so awesome! It started off with last teusday...I woke up and just felt like I really needed to learn how to teach the restoration in spanish! (we have a few spanish restorations pamphlets and books of mormon) So i did! I taught sister struhs and we were just laughing so hard the whole time. I felt so strongly to take a spanish book of mormon with us. later that day a member called us and asked us if we had a spanishs book of mormon for her friend! Of course I was jumping up and down I was so excited. We went over to the members neighbors with her later and we were able to give her the spanish book of mormon! they are Jehovah witness and have alot of tough crazy questions but they are progressing! the husband knows english. But later that week we found not 1 but 2 more spanish speaking investigators! It was such a miracle. we have a few spanish speaking members in our ward so they came with us last night. I couldn't say a ton but I did manage to say a few things in spanish about the book of mormon. they invited us to come back thursday!!!
We also were able to go do baptisms for the dead with Miss Kim! the water makes her a little nervous but she did awesome. she was just all smiles afterward
Tenesha and her two kids baptism got pushed back to next saturday. the son didn't come to church on sunday and we really want them to be baptized as a family. but we have been able to meet with them alot. tonight we are teaching the 10 commandments and we made it into a puzzle activity to keep them interested :) it should be fun!
we met a total of 10 new investigators last week!!! this area is sacred grounds to me! It has been so blessed. alma 26:12 says Yea I know that I am nothing as to my strength I am weak, therefore i will not boast of myself but I will boast of my god for in his strength I can do all things. Yea, Behold, many might miracles we have wrought in this land for which we will praise his name forever!
This describes perfectly how I feel.
We were able to teach a total of 38 lessons this last week!!
I was studying fasting alot this week this fast sunday coming up. I have always been really bad at fasting but I was reading a talk from the 2004 november ensign so its kinda old but it talks about starting and ending a family fast while kneeling by the table. I thought that was so cool! We have been doing alot of FHE's lately and I have realized how much strength they really do bring. Try to do one this week before sunday and decide as a family something you can fast for :) I love ya'll.
Transfers are this week I am not really sure what will happen but I keep getting the feeling I will be leaving Odenton :(. I will let ya know on monday.
