It has been a good week, it has also been pretty slow.
There isn't much to talk about but I will talk about a family that we met with Tuesday. We met with this family. They are really cool
The father, is a member but he went less active at the age of 14. His wife is not
a member and neither are their kids. They have three daughters they all have
been meeting with missionaries since 2009. But I guess they just haven't been baptized. So our goal has been just to get to know them better and hopefully set that date that they can get baptized. We talk to the mom, and had a really good lesson Tuesday. I feel like she's really progressing. We asked her what her
big concern was and she said that she wants to be honest when answering the baptismal questions like was Joseph Smith a true Prophet of God. So we asked her
if she's prayed to know whether it's true and whether know if what the missionaries
have taught is true. She said that she has really never prayed about it. We will meet with her tomorrow to see how it's going. We're really excited. I also want to talk about how great the members are. One place we always go to is the W's they are really cool they're really strong in the church and they are always inviting us over. They treat us like
we're there own kids. We didn't have a dinner scheduled for Easter Sunday so they invited us over to have it with them and then we had a little campfire in the backyard and just talked, it was really fun.
My other favorite members have been brother and sister V. They are snowbirds they come out to Florida during the winter from Utah. They always treat us so well and it's so nice to be around them because they are so happy all the time and plus they take us to Texas Roadhouse every single time and who doesn't like that?? Their son is serving a mission in Albuquerque New Mexico. So she knows what it's like to be a "missionary mom" so she takes pictures of us and text's them to our Moms. All of the members in my ward are just so awesome. One last thing I want to talk about is General Conference. General Conference was really good I really enjoyed all the talks my favorites were by David A. Bednar, Who talked about hushing out your fears by having faith in Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. That's one thing I've had to deal with in my short time out here is just have faith that everything will be fine because it is so hard to talk to someone and it can be so awkward sometimes. Another one of my favorite talks was by Jeffrey R. Holland he is so powerful when he talks and he just talked about how we all need the Savior in our life to help us when we are falling. It was so nice to hear from the prophets and 12 apostles and I really enjoyed our "missionary vacation" haha.
Love you guys and miss you all. Love,
