This week


So another great week that went by way too fast.

We are teaching a family of five right now who is progressing really well!  They were a referal from a member from another stake, and he has helped us teach them. The parents are C and B, and the first time we taught them they were really receptive and accepted a baptismal date. The second lesson they told us they had read and prayed and had felt a peaceful spirit in their home.  They felt that things were going better for them and real wanted to come to church.  Unfortunately they couldn't come, but they are excited to keep learning about the góspel.

On Wednesday one of the assistants, Elder Woods came and worked with us. We worked hard and he helped us see a few things we could do to improve.  The next day we had a zone conference with President Bluth and it was really good.  We had huge empanadas for lunch! haha

On Sunday, no one came to church, which was lame, but that night we found another family to teach!  They have really scientific beliefs, so it'll be interesting teaching them.

The other day a friend sent me a letter with a quote from Elder Bednar that really had an impact on me this week.  I can't remember it word for word, but it says that ordinary people constantly and diligently doing simple things that God wants them to do will be able to do great things.  It reminded me of a coach that used to say, Take care of the ordinary plays, and the extraordinary plays will take care of themselves.  In the work of the Lord, we are asked to be faithful and diligent, doing simple good things that God asks us to do so that He can work miracles in our lives and in the lives of those we serve.   By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.

Again thanks for all your help!
