"I'm not interested..... I'm a witch."


This week was pretty much the best thing ever! If the time could slow down that'd be chill.

Anyway, so the most exciting new for this week... 2 of our investigators are on date for baptism!!! We'll go with Sabrina first-- okay so we got a text from her fellowship early on Wednesday morning saying that they talked with her and she wants to celebrate her 21st birthday by getting baptized!!! CRAZY! So we obviously scheduled an appointment with her for that night and ya, she does indeed want to! Ha so we're having a baptism this Saturday!! Ha we haven't been teaching her for all that long so we still have quite a bit to teach her-- we met with her like 3 or 4 times this past week and had a lesson. Then get this. She came to church yesterday and she brought one of her friends! Her name is Nosha and she ended up enjoying church and then they both came to a baptism that we had in the zone yesterday. 

Which again was the best thing ever-- Baby Burnside and Sister Rowberry had a baptism yesterday! It was the cutest thing-- and they bore their testimonies and the whole time I was just sitting there thinking "My baby is so cute, look she's all grown up." It was pretty awesome. But ya, Sabrina is super stoked to get baptized so it's just the best. When we had our last lesson with her she said the closing prayer and in it she said "I am so excited to receive your spirit" SHE IS THE BEST!!!!! I can't wait for her to be able to receive the Holy Ghost! Seriously being a missionary is just the best thing ever.

Got to go on a "mini-exchange" with Sister Hathaway this week

Out with the old and in with the new-- We got a new car this week... and I mean brand spanking new! She only had 21 kms on her... we named her Tyra.

Go Flames!!

The best backer outter there ever was.

Now, TUAN! So we literally started meeting with Tuan like a week ago and he is now on date for May 20th! We're so stoked! He is literally the most prepared person ever. He knows that everything that we teach is true and he wants to be able to go to the temple. So he's just the best. When we were teaching him this last time we taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and when we were teaching about baptism we asked him how he felt and he said that he was feeling the holy ghost tell him that it was true. BOOM the spirit was so strong. 

We had some fun moments out tracting this week. We knocked on this lady's door and she answered and peered from behind the door and said "I'm not interested... I'm a witch." Ha we died. It was so funny. We are tempted to knock again and just talk to her about stuff, that'd be funny. But ya, we found this super awesome apartment complex that we have been starting to tract out and the people there are so humble it's the best. We met this guy that said that we could come back, and we also have a return appointment with 2 other families. So things are going well.

This upcoming week should be pretty awesome. So pumped about being a missionary and teaching and finding... pretty much just love being a missionary.

Scripture of the week: Alma 58:11 Yea, and it came to pass that the Lord our God did visit us with assurances that he would deliver us; yea, insomuch that he did speak peace to our souls, and did grant unto us great faith, and did cause us that we should hope for our deliverance in him.

Quote of the week: "Your best chance for being happy is to do the things that happy people do. Live the way that happy people live. Walk the path that happy people walk. And your chances to find the help of angels when you didn't even know they knew you existed, improves exponentially." --Elder Holland

Love you all and hope that you have a killer week-- especially Court in France :)
