This weeks letter is probably not going to be very long so I am sorry
advance. We did how ever have quite a few miracles.
Monday night we had a
family home evening with Bre and Izzy. It was
super fun because we talked
about missionary work and we made them do
a role play of how they would talk
to one of their friends about the
gospel. Then we played scripture pictionary.
Those girls are my
favorite and I hope that they will keep in touch enough
that I will be
able to be there for their farewell's when they go on missions
their weddings some day.
A lot of our week was contacting and
I want to tell you about the
amazing people we met.
C***: we were
told by the senior couple it would be a good idea
to stop by and see them so
we did and we were able to talk to her
about her desire of going to them
temple to be sealed in the next few
months which was exciting.
this is the C***s neighbor and we heard that they were
member or less active. When she opened the door we had a
with her and then she invited us in. We got to know
her situation a little
better and we were able to take her interest of
rock climbing and hiking and
apply the gospel to it. We watched the
youth mormon message " A Secure
Anchor". She has been struggling
wanting to do things solo even though she
knows it is important to
have God in her life. She has been thinking about
getting her grandson
involved with the church and so we invited her to our
chapel tour and
she said that it was a great idea.
J***s: we got a
call from our ward mission leader telling us about
a family who moved in 2
weeks ago. The parents are not active and they
have 4 kids that are old
enough to be baptized and they aren't yet.
Mom wants to get more active and
so we are going to be teaching the
family and hopefully getting the kids
Other exciting news this week:
I finally got to figure
out why I was having dizzy spells. I went to a
head doctor and he did a
hearing test and nothing, so he sent me in
for a blood test and the test came
back and I guess I have a
hypothyroid. So I am going to be put on some
medicine to help.
Also this week we got to meet one of our investigator's
dad and he was
so awesome. He was talking to us about his conversion and how
his daughter will be able to see it. He thanked us for all that
We also found out this week that some of our returning
M***, have a temple date set. They are going to the Draper
on September 13th and I get to go! They also have gone and
baptism for the dead and they are getting callings next week! I
seeing people progress so quickly.
We decided we really like
Sonic happy hour and so some days we go and
get slushes when it is to hot
outside to handle.
And last but not least I found out this Morning that
me and Sister
Hedley are staying as companions here in Orem. The AP tried to
me at first and told me I was going out to eastern Utah. Luckily I
I can't believe I only have 6 weeks left! It seems so unreal and
so crazy to see all of these other missionaries coming home. I
had a few dreams of what it is going to be like stepping off the
but right now I am really focusing on helping the people while I
can! Love you all!:)
