Hello, all! It's been a great week.
We were finally able to meet with Maria and Mitchell this week. We met them in August and haven't been able to meet with them since. We taught them the Restoration. We met with Mitchell again later and taught him about the Book of Mormon. He seemed to really feel the Spirit testify of its truth and wants to read it. He also wants to stop smoking and drinking.
We taught the Montesinos again and afterwards I got the idea to ask Kayla if she would ever want to come teach a lesson with us. She said yes and we got her number. I can't wait! She had shared her testimony of the Book of Mormon and I thought it was really awesome. It will also help strengthen her testimony.
On Tuesday there was another exchange so I brought Sister Clement to Odessa. On Thursday I had great interviews with President and Sister Cooper. That night we went to Lincoln's basketball game with Abby.
Friday I was with Sister Clement again while Sister Minson and Sister Swanson went to Mission Leadership Council. It was a little bit of a stressful day. That night I got a letter from my dad and a package from my roommates! Best thing ever!
Yesterday was a special stake conference because of...the creation of the Odessa stake! Crazy! Of course, we are in that new stake. Reese brought her friend Brenna to it, and I think she liked it! There were some great speakers.
Also, we started wearing our slacks on Saturday after some final shopping. It was so weird!
