Anyway, how has everyone's week been? Ours has been pretty busy.
On Tuesday we had zone training meeting and interviews with the
mission president. On Wednesday we had an exchange so I was in Land O
Lakes with Sister Huber. We taught a 6 year old girl and her mom (who
is a member of our church, stopped coming, and is starting to come
back) in the morning and then walked with them to the bus stop. They
are super sweet. We went to Vallarta's for lunch, where they have
dollar tacos on certain days. It was really good. We went to a youth
activity that night with a little girl who just got baptized and a
little girl who is about to get baptized. We made cute jars with glow
in the dark paint to remind us to let our lights shine, like Jesus
says in Matthew 5:16.
On Thursday, we taught the M's. Somehow, we were able to break
through some ice and find out a little more about why Brother
M never prays in our lessons. Apparently he has not prayed in
their almost 20 years of marriage. We need to find out what it is
that keeps him from communicating with Heavenly Father. It is not
enough to just participate in prayer, but it needs to be from the
heart, an actual conversation, done with faith and willingness to act.
We met with several member families this week to get to know them
better and strengthen their faith and desire to do missionary work.
We also helped take down the set from Night in Bethlehem on Friday and
Saturday. On Saturday afternoon, we stopped by the Speers. Brother
Speer is a less active member and his wife is not a member. They were
very nice and were happy to let us share a short message about Jesus
Christ. We set up a time to go back.
That was basically our week. Nicole has been super busy, so we
haven't been able to meet with her again and her kids were sick
yesterday, so they didn't make it to church. They seem to be
progressing, though, and we are very excited for them!
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Don't forget to update me
on what's going on in your lives.😊
