Florida - Still Hot and Sunny!

September 26, 2016

Hello, all!  Not too much to report on this week.

The Reeces cancelled our dinner appointment because Sister Reece wasn't feeling well, but they ordered pizza and gave us snacks.  It was Dominoes, my favorite!

On Friday we taught a really nice woman named Vanessa who we met and set up an appointment with last week.  She is from Puerto Rico and likes to talk and dance.  She had a lot of questions and wants to read the Book of Mormon and Our Heritage to learn more about church history.  She was curious about how the next prophet is chosen.  She is neighbors with Reese and Reese's dad Michael helps her with yard work and technical problems sometimes.  He was fixing her lawnmower when we came over.

On Saturday night, we had the General Women's broadcast.  We had invited Vanessa, but she ended up not being able to come.  But Sister Cook invited us over to watch it and eat Publix Chocolate Trinity ice cream, which is everyone's favorite here in Florida.  It was so fun!  I love the Cooks.  One of my favorite quotes was from Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk on faith: "The purpose of faith is not to change God's will, but to empower us to act on God's will."

Yesterday I got a surprise at church!  Brother and Sister Thompson, who were in my branch presidency at the MTC, were there to visit Brother Thompson's brother, who is the stake president here in Tampa.  They are so awesome!  They were excited to see me.

We have a zone activity today so that should be interesting.  We had to kind of rush to get everything done.  But we did it!  We will be playing games and eating pizza.

I hope you all have a great week!
