Happy Valentines Week!
Hey Hey Hey! Happy Valentines Week!
Ok, So here's how the week turned out:
- We taught the Pentecostal, Robin...but it turns out she's not really
interested, but still SUPER friendly! We love her! That evening we went
and taught the Thompsons. We taught the Restoration. It turned out
great! the spirit was really strong. We're going back again next
Wednesday! They MIGHT come to church this next sunday! WHOOOO!
- Fun working at Feeding America (soup kitchen) then we got in to Lina
(Juan was at school). We watched the Restoration video with her. Was
great! We had a wonderful dinner at the Paffords- their son Cody was
there too! He's going to marry nikki Blevins - the RM that went out with
us a lot! I MIGHT BE HERE FOR THEIR WEDDING! WHOOO! Btw...HAPPY
Thurs - went out finding more members! ROAD TRIP! Had an awesome Weekly planning!
- Had a great lesson with our neighbors, Kat and Dan! Helping them get
back in the habit of praying! YAY FOR PRAYER! So, for our district
Meeting, Elder Boore (District Leader) asked both my companion and I to
do a white handbook training on PDAy (preperation day = Monday). But he
asked us to not read out of the white handbook and to be creative.
Yeah....we were TOTALLY creative! To Check it out, go to: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4tfi1l9q0ailmda/MVI_5186.MOV?dl=0

Health and Rehab center. I LOVE singing with Sis. Wheelhouse! Such
harmony! Still can't wait to sing with her for Elder Christopherson!
