It is almost the end of July!!
We only have 29.03 miles per day for the rest of the month. Our average per day has been 60, so... we will be bringing out the bikes this week! I am going to buy a cheap skirt at Walmart that I don't mind wearing on a bike. This is missionary life... AND I JUST LOVE IT!!
BAPTISM DAY FOR KRYSTAL!
FRIDAY, JULY 18, 2014
Krystal was baptized on Friday! What a tender moment that was. Heavenly Father made a way for me to be at her baptism and I just felt like an angel watching over that happy moment. I feel I now know what angels feel like as they watch us make good choices. It sure is one happy feeling. Then, on Saturday, we had a Ward Picnic. Krystal was serving everyone! She would run to get everyone drinks, utensils, slices of cheese, anything anyone needed! She did this because she wanted to be Living Her Baptismal Covenant!
THE WONDERFUL LOPEZ FAMILY!
Lola is as adorable as ever! Her birthday is today! (July 22nd) We get to give her a gift! I love being a Sister Missionary! Her mom is getting married next month and she will be having her reception at the church! Lola had her mom print out lots of invitations to invite her church family! We might even get to go dress shopping with Brenda as long as it is on P-day when she goes.
I LOVE WORKING WITH FAMILIES!
As of yesterday, we took over the English classes in Cheney. The regular teacher is fighting some BIG fires that keep happening around here. It is fun! (The class, not the fires.) Except that no one came yesterday, ha-ha, but today is a new day and poco a pocito, people are going to come!
Thank you for your prayers! Last week we found some investigators and Hermana Taylor and I feel like they are ready! They were people who we have taught before, but you can tell there is a difference in them now and they are so prepared! I can't wait to see all these miracles.
Yesterday we visited the really sweet man in Airway. We met him once and he had us teach him while he sat on a bucket in his garage. But our return appointment last week didn't happen. We accidentally (but by the spirit), ended up driving past his house when we noticed he was under his car changing the oil. We quickly parked and as soon as he saw us, he got out from under the car and had us sit down. We taught him the restoration and invited him to be baptized, to which he replied, "probably." We felt like we needed to put him on date, so we asked him to be baptized on the 23rd of August, and he said, "Yes!" without doubt, hesitation or anything! He is coming to church this Sunday!
I love being in the same Branch for so long! You just start realizing what you really can do to help out! I can't wait to continue!
Sorry about e-mailing on Tuesday instead of Monday...but, on Monday...
We went to the TEMPLE !
I LOVE THAT PLACE!!
