P-Day Hike/ Mt Pinnacle
Wow that is crazy to think that this week I will hit my six months out on the mission. The time has gone by crazy fast, it honestly felt like only a few weeks ago that I was in the CCM in Mexico. All the things that have happened in these last six months, I've learned and grown so much especially from the people around me, and those that I serve.
This week was a super busy week, but that means that it was a super awesome week and also a crazy fast week! On Thursday our Elders Quorum President and the Stake set up a branch outreach. We all split up, and went to try different less active members houses. I went with Heaton and his comp to his area, and didn't have too much luck. But Meyers stayed in our area, and they saw a less active who really needed the help. She has been working a ton trying to support her family, so she hasn't had much time to do anything. But they said the visit was awesome, and we are going to start helping the kids get rides to church and visiting them more often. And then on Sunday the Mom actually came to Sacrament meeting which was awesome! So the Branch outreach was a great success even if it was for one person. It's amazing the blessing and opportunities the Lord gives us even if it's not what we are expecting.
Then this week we were able to able to have a lesson with our top investigator Monica. A member came with us as well. The lesson was really great and she told us she was able to get permission to leave work early to come to church. So on Sunday we went to guide them to Church, and they were just finishing getting ready. The whole family ended up coming (Monica and her 3 kids + a cousin). Church went really well and they told us that they really enjoyed it. At the end of our Sacrament meeting President Wakolo came in for the last 15 minutes. Then at the end he asked if Monica and her family were our investigators, and then invited them and us to have a Family Home Evening and a dinner in President Wakolos home!! So we are going to do that Next Monday, if it all work out!! We are so excited!! Even though Monica can't speak English she will be able to feel the spirit so strong in Presidents home. The spirit he brings is just absolutely amazing! The baptismal date is still looking great for Monica., She is super awesome and just loves everything that we teach. We are going to teach her tonight with the relief society President! It's so much easier to help investigators get familiar with the church when they become friends with members. It's just amazing to see her progression, and how her life is changing for the better.
On Saturday we were also able to see one of our other solid investigators Brenda & Vivian. We taught the plan of salvation and they really like it. We were able to set a baptismal date with them as well. They enjoy learning, and have been reading in El Libro De Mormon. Vivian even took it to her house, and has been switching off reading it with her step dad. She wants us to go over to her house to meet her brother and her dad! We are really looking forward to that.
I wish I could write more, but I'm running out of time! I hope that you have a great week and thank you so much for the update. I Love you so much!
