Possibly my most successful week on my mission!

People here love Scotland, no that is not my hands!

                                                                                                                                      March 17, 2014

This week has been full of blessings! Seriously I don’t even feel like I deserve the blessings; yet God has blessed us so much! For sake of time, and also I have time to upload photos and send them, I will just do bullet points of the awesome things we have seen happen here in East Kilbride.
Thinking about getting this hat...what do you think?
·         We had an appointment with a guy named Craig last Monday. He kept his appointment and it was really good. He has definitely been prepared. The spirit was there and we were able to teach him the Restoration. We then saw him on Wednesday where we taught the first half of the plan of salvation. He read the bit that we asked him to read in the Book of Mormon and he is always asking really good questions. He just wants to have peace in his life, which is perfect because that is what we offer! We invited him to be baptized on Wednesday, just a soft baptism, saying that if he knew it was true, would he get baptized and he said yes! Well we also got to see him on Friday. This lesson was sooooo good. The spirit was so strong, and he told us that he could feel peace with us. After we explained to him that he was feeling the spirit, I promise you could hear a pen drop is was so silent and just peaceful. Craig had like tears in his eyes as we helped him see that he was feeling the spirit. We told him that the reason why he was feeling the spirit was because he knew that what we were saying about the after-life was true, and he said that he did know! We invited him to set a date, and he said he wanted to think about it and also come to church. So that was great. And on Sunday we met him at his house (he just lives down the street from us which is awesome!) and we took him to church. Everyone was really welcoming and he seemed to enjoy it. He is a slow learner though, so he kept on saying that it was all a lot to take in. Poor guy is on medication that makes him drowsy, and he was dozing off in sacrament meeting, haha I think he felt the peace a little too much! ;) So there are great things looking for Craig and he really has been a blessing for us.
·         With Paul we set a baptism date, however he still hasn’t talked to his parents, which means he still hasn’t made it to church. He received a priesthood blessing to help him stop drinking coffee and to have the strength to talk to his parents. With each visit he gets more and more resolved to do it, but he gets scared. The best thing about Paul though, is that he is so knowledgeable. He reads virtually every day and has been studying a lot! After the Elders gave him the blessing he said, "the Melchezidek priesthood, that’s the higher priesthood right?" Which was awesome because investigators have a really hard time understanding the priesthood! So he is still progressing! And we have been praying hard that he would be able to tell his parents and come to church so he can make his baptism date. This upcoming week is the week it needs to happen!
·         We met with the Gray family on Tuesday and when we got there they told us how they weren’t religious and not really interested. Basically Sister Firth and I spent a whole hour testifying and showing them how this would be beneficial for them. And they invited us back for this upcoming Tuesday. I am a little nervous that they won’t be willing to put in the effort to know if it’s true. But we will see. Miracles and Surprises happen.
We are pigs!
·         The Watsons are doing good. Brother Watson still didn’t come to church this week, but I know he still wants to work on coming back. When we met with them, right away Brother Watson got out his x-box and showed me a Mormon message that a previous Sister Missionary showed him. We have finally learned that the best way to get to Brother Watson and their kids is through videos. Sister Watson says that she has caught him watching the bible videos and Mormon messages! So that’s cool. Basically our church is awesome because it’s up to date with technology!
·         We met with Sister Betty and she has taken the challenge that we gave her at the beginning of the year seriously. She has started her family history work, and she is trying to be a full time tithe payer, and she is working on this anxiety she has developed with going outside so she can come to church again! I am so proud of her because I think she is starting to realize how important church and stuff is, and her old reasons why she couldn’t go to church are starting to disintegrate!
·         Our focus with Sister Procter is to try to get her to go to general conference. On Wednesday we ditched our lesson plan and just read her a general conference talk from last general conference, and we invited her to go. She said no. Then on Saturday we just read another general conference talk discussed it and invited her to come to general conference and she said no, but that she might watch it at home on her computer.....we are chipping away the ice! ;) It would be so good for her to actually go to the church building and watch the general conference, so hopefully we can get her to agree.
We were able to see other less actives and talk to some great people at their doors and on the street, so that is good! We have some potentials and have given out a good amount of Book of Mormons this week. I am so grateful for the people that God has prepared. I am grateful also for a great companion! Sister Firth has been awesome and we get along so well. Every day is so fun! I love it! I am loving life right now, which worries me because this means the hills are going to come! Thanks for all the prayers and support, they are working!

I love you all!

Bring it on East Kilbride

                                                                                                                                 


March 10, 2014

Hey family and friends,

A couple of weeks ago I studied about being meek. I meant to send off my study, but for the past couple of weeks I haven't really had time. So I will share it now, I started out reading Elder Ulisses Soares talk "Be Meek and Lowly of Heart". Meekness consists of being God-fearing, Righteous, Humble, Teachable, and Patient. What I found is that when we work on these things, or when we work on being meek we eventually receive other gifts such as being willing to follow Jesus Christ, being Calm, Docile, Tolerant and Submissive.
Because I have come to love and appreciate the dictionary I looked up the definitions for each of the attributes that make up meekness, this is what I got:
God-fearing: Earnestly Religious
Righteous: Morally right or Justifiable
Humble: having or showing a modest or low opinion of your own importance
Teachable: able to learn by being taught
Patient: Able to accept delay, trouble, or suffering without becoming angry or upset

So I really liked those definitions, it gives you a better idea on what you can do to be more meek. Like with being patient, even if something is not going your way, the definition doesn’t say becoming angry or upset. So a way to improve our patience is not just holding it in, but getting rid of the anger all together.

 In the talk it also said to become meek we need to live in the Spirit.
Another quote from the talk "Meekness is vital for us to become more Christ like. Without it we won’t be able to develop other important virtues."
He also said that we all have a seed of meekness. That caused me to think about how we are all born with the Light of God in us, it’s just whether or not we expand it or suppress it. So, based off of the last quote, I wonder if the Light of God consists of seeds of attributes. We all have wee gifts, and so all we have to do is nourish it. It makes me realize that we should never say the phrase "well that’s just how I am, I can’t change it" because we can, the seed is there.

The last thing, in the talk gives us 3 steps to be more meek.
1) Improve each day, I feel like we can do this by recognizing our weaknesses and asking for forgiveness every day. Alma 34:33
2) Control Temper
Elder Herbertson told us something at our last missionary conference, he told us that when people slam doors in our face and we get rejected, a great way to not get down, or angry, and to be more Christ-like is to give them the benefit of the doubt.
3) Be humble
"I believe brothers and sisters that only those that are humble are able to acknowledge and understand the Lords answers to their prayers."

So if we follow those steps and just work harder in being meek we will be blessed! So that was my study in a nutshell a while back. Now for my week!

 We had a really good week. We reached our goal for lessons despite moves, so that is pretty good! On Monday we went out to eat with a member, and she took us to an Italian restaurant. Well she lives two bus rides away so we were on the first bus back and we weren’t paying attention very well and we missed our bus stop and ended up in Glasgow.....so that was fun. 40 minutes to get home and we got caught in Glasgow. I texted our District Leader and was like "Hey so umm.....we are in Glasgow, we might be home late... talk to you later!" And we responded "WHY are you in Glasgow" hahahahaha I just told him to phone when he got the chance, and I would explain. It was an interesting night.

Hugs from Sis. Watt
 We were able to see a good amount of Less Actives before Sister Jacques left, including the Watsons having us over for dinner. Their stove blew up so they made this huge pot of mac and cheese on a portable camping stove! haha, it was pretty good. Paul is doing well, he is progressing, and in one of his prayers he asked for strength to tell his parents that "he is Mormon now"! :) So he believes it, he just has to come to church. Sister Firth is pretty sure he has some Asperger’s. So that’s why he is so slow progressing. Wednesday we were up bright and early (well earlier than usual) and got Sister Jacques to the Glasgow Central and then to a bus stop so she could catch a coach to the ferry to Ireland. Then I was this awkward 3rd wheel companionless missionary who kept on getting passed on to different sets of missionaries running around Glasgow. Then we finally made it to the Stake Center where we played football! So that was fun. Then we picked up Sister Firth, who was in Stornoway which is in the northern islands, specifically the Isle of Lewis, and then we had a dinner appointment and visited Sister Procter, needless to say, I was shattered by the end of the day.

Thursday Friday and Saturday we just did the usual, but we had some really good blessings. We have met some awesome potential investigators, and we have return appointments this week. Sister Firth was in shock with how interested people were in our message, because Stornoway is so deeply religious that no one will listen to them there. Apparently they all hate Mormons, and it’s so religious that Sister Firth and Her companion weren’t even allowed to proselytize on Sundays because the whole island shuts down on Sundays, and people got angry at them for "working" on the Sabbath! Haha, which is way weird. Anyway so Sister Firth was loving it. It definitely made me more appreciative of my area. I don’t know, we had the usual for the week. There was a baptism on Sunday, the Elders taught a member’s son who is 9 and his father isn’t a member, so his dad wanted him to be taught first, because he didn’t believe that his son would completely be making the decision by his self. So they have been teaching him the lessons and treating him like an investigator! So yeah he got baptized.

At the beginning of the week it was really nice weather, but then Sister Firth came and it started raining! haha she brought the bad weather ;) I guess it doesn’t rain as much where she came from. So we got soaked...it was fun!

Well that was basically our week, I am running out of time so I have got to go, but hope everyone has a great week! I love you all!

Miracles! ‏

                                                                                                                                            March 3, 2014

Hiya Family!

  and Friends....haha sorry that that is an afterthought.


So I don’t know why but I can’t focus right now so I have been putting off this large email, so it might be short. First off, we got moves call, Sister Jacques is going to Cork, and my new companion is going to be Sister Firth, I am way excited, her and I already know each other pretty well so that’s good!

This week was way good, the past two weeks I have seen so many miracles happen in our area. Here are some cool things that happened this week!
New Companion Sis. Firth
·         Tuesday we tried by a potential investigator and his wife was there, she let us in and we had a good bluther (chat) for a wee bit, then her husband, the one we had talked to at his door earlier came down. Then out of nowhere all their children came home, we didn’t even know they had kids. So basically we talked to the mum and dad, and their son. It was an interesting lesson because the dad is a paganist, the son is an atheist, and the mum has no idea, but has had a spiritual experience, where she was dead for a wee bit and saw light and stuff like that. It was good. I am pretty sure that was my first real impromptu lesson, where someone just let us in out of nowhere and we gave a full restoration lesson. So that was cool.
·         Sister Jacques and I made an awesome homemade chicken noodle soup that lasted us all week, it was great!
·         We met with Paul twice this week as per usual, he still hasn’t talked to his parents, but he has obviously made some good progress with his praying and he believes in most of the material.
Goodbye Sis. Jacques
·         From the time that I was sick and crashed at the Watsons house for a wee bit, Sister Jacques had a really good conversation with Brother Watson. So basically this week Brother Watson had done a lot of thinking about that talk, he thanked Sister Jacques and came to church! For the first time in forever, he came to church!
·         In one of our chapping excursions we had a really good conversation with this guy. He was really interested and we exchanged contact info and stuff. And then out of nowhere his friend appeared (he was just chilling in the living room) and we introduced ourselves and he said that he had been listening in and basically wanted to learn more also! It was soooo coool!
·         On Sunday we tried by Seda and she was home, and so was her boyfriend. So we met him for the first time and he asked a ton of questions and we have a return appointment. It seems that he was interested in learning more, this may be really good for Seda, I know the gospel means a lot to her but I also know she struggles being able to maintain it with a non-member boyfriend, she needs an eternal family. So who knows, maybe this will be really good!
·         Then after that we tried by a less active that Sister Jacques and I have never met and we met her and her daughter and son, and we have a return appointment, she still reads the Book of Mormon, and she says she is searching for the true church, she has been baptized, but it seems like she never gained a real testimony of the church and doctrine inside. Well this is the true church, so maybe this time around she will recognize that.

The yummy Chicken Soup
Miracles do happen! I just listed 7 big miracles that happened this week with us, and there are many more little miracles where I saw Gods hand guiding us! It’s amazing how he works. So many times I find myself frustrated that someone exercised their agency and chose to dodge our set up appointment, and then we are guided to someone else's home where we really needed to be! I look back and see so many times this week that I have not put enough trust in God. I shouldn’t get frustrated when things don’t go right, because most of the time, it’s because there is something better waiting for us! God is so cool! I know that that statement may seem a little irreverent, but that is all I can say right now! God is so cool!

We met with a good amount of less actives, and reached our weekly goal for lessons. I have been healthy and getting good sleep. Also almost every morning this week it was sunny, it ended up raining by the end of the day but at least we are getting some sunshine and warmth! Also the days are longer; it is actually getting dark around 6 now as opposed to 4:30, which is helping me to be in a better mood. I was getting a little down with all the clouds and rain and stuff! haha I am pretty sure it’s been warmer here this week than Colorado or Utah! AWESOME!

So I don’t know what else to share, that was my week! I hope everyone has had a great week, and I love you all!

God Bless! (People say that to us a lot because they think we are nuns)

I can’t think of anything creative to say.‏

                                                                                                                         February 24, 2014


Sis. Jacques and Sis. Watt


Hey family!
So this morning I totally studied about meekness and was going to share it with you but I forgot my study journal so I don’t really remember what I put down, so that will just have to wait until next week!
Our week has been good. I got sick at the end of the week but we worked hard in the beginning of the week and saw a lot of success so despite having basically our whole Saturday shot, and half of Sunday we still beat our goal for lessons. Not like the number of lessons matter, but it did feel pretty good! I think all of our potentials that we had return appointments for, bailed on us, so that made for a lot of finding time. It has been nice to get back to finding. Often times I think back to when I was in Hamilton and how much finding I did there! It was a lot of finding that is for sure!

We visited Fay in the nursing home this week, as per usual, and her daughter on Sunday came and told us that Fay says we are just like family to her. Right now she is not interested in our church, and probably too old to be able to even get baptized. But I feel comfort that maybe with these visits; she will be more willing to accept the gospel, either in this life or the next! Wednesday we had a completely full day and almost everything we planned worked out! Which is a big deal, because that doesn’t happen very often. Our lessons with Paul this week went well. He is progressing, although very slowly! We committed him to tell his parents that he is learning from us, and he opened up to us by finally saying that he just doesn’t feel ready to come to church. Although that makes me sad to hear, I am just grateful that he is being honest, as opposed to saying he will come to church and then bailing on us over and over! To help him prepare to tell his parents we did a role play with him! It was fun, especially since we had Granny Green who used to be a catholic role play it with him! So hopefully he will have the courage to tell his parents soon. I think if he does that, he will progress faster and be more willing to come to church.

We finally were able to meet with Agnes, and she is now a new investigator, she fell a few weeks back and that’s why we were never able to call her an official investigator yet because she has had to consistently cancel appointments because of her leg. But she kept this one and she said she would come to church when her leg heals, and she said that since we started visiting her she has felt happier! So that was really exciting, also I have always wanted to convert an older person because they are more stuck in their ways, she is in her late 70's, so it would be awesome if she joined the church! We met this awesome guy this week! He was so nice and we got a return appointment, the only thing is that he is a recovering drug addict, and he has only been drug free for like 10 weeks, so trying to find a joint teach with a lady who would feel comfortable teaching him would be like impossible, so we gave him to the elders. It’s too bad because he is way excited about what we have to say! His narcotics anonymous class was run by Christians and so he really wants to know more about Christianity! Cool cool cool!

 I don’t remember if I already sent this: That is Elder Barney he is a descendant of the 2nd person who made it to the river in the foot race against George D Watt. It's kind of cool that we have descendants of both of them in the same mission! I asked him if he wanted to race, he said that he didn't want to because he knew he would lose! haha
We were able to meet with a family in the ward, whose daughter just got off her mission last week. It was really crazy talking to her about it. She gave her homecoming talk in sacrament meeting, and as I listened to her I got my first ever feeling of NOT wanting to go home. Not like I have wanted to go home, but you will meet missionaries who say, as they get closer to going home, they say that they don’t want to go. I have always thought that was bizarre, I mean I love being a missionary and all, but when it’s time to go home, it will be nice. Well I saw her talking and I just got this feeling like, Sister Watt, one day soon that will be you, and I am freaking out! I don’t want to go home! Haha but I know it will be the right time. Also while we were doing weekly planning I realized I will be hitting my 11 month mark soon, and that also freaked me out! TIME IS GOING WAY TO FAST!

Saturday I was sick! Virtually all day, I felt better after I had taken a morning nap, and we got on the bus to go do some work, and I wasn’t on the bus for even 10 minutes before I knew that I was in trouble. It was better if I just got to a members home as opposed to try to turn around and go to our home. So we ended up crashing at the Watsons for a couple of hours, until I was well enough to get back up and go home. They were so nice and while I was resting Sister Jacques helped them clean their home, and then we watched bible videos, and also Brother Watson confided in us with things about spirituality he had been thinking about (he is less active). I know that we definitely were meant to be there at that time, because Brother Watson is making such good progress!

Saturday night I got a blessing and then Sunday we went to church, after church I was just shattered (exhausted) so I took a long nap, and after that I felt fit as a fiddle! So we went out and we had a really cool experience. So Sister Jacques has been getting this prompting that we needed to visit a less active family (the Humphreys) over and over. But the Elders visit them, so we got permission to visit them. Well our Sunday night lesson cancelled so after Sister Procter we went to their home. Well the man who opened the door was not Brother Humphries (p.s. neither, I or Sister Jacques have ever met the Humphreys, we didn’t even know what they looked like). This young man and his wife had just moved in like a week ago, so it became quickly apparent that it wasn’t the Humphries that we needed to visit, just their old house! We had an awesome lesson with this guy on his doorstep. He used to be really religious, but has been questioning a lot lately. We gave him a Book of Mormon and we tried to set up another appointment. Unfortunately his wife is going through a bereavement, so she is not keen on having anyone over, so out of respect for his wife he declined. But he said he would read the chapter we gave him and we are desperately praying that he will phone us! He is looking for the truth, so maybe he will get a prompting when he reads the Book of Mormon. So we are keeping our fingers crossed! Anyway so that was my week! It’s been pretty good, thanks for all the prayers, and support. I hope everyone’s week is great! I love you all!

Snow or White Slush?‏

                                                                                                                                            2-17-2014

So the keyboard that I am on right now has really stiff keys to press, so I might possibly get carpal tunnel from the email! Seriously my pinky already is in pain from writing Mum and Dad.
So to start off, I will share my study this morning! I am telling you, it was awesome!

So my question was how do I strengthen my faith?
I went on exchanges this week with Sister Kline, who is a STL, and we talked a lot about faith. She said that one time she was in an interview with President and said, "President I feel like I have faith, why isn’t anything happening, do I just need more?"
And President responded "Yes, Sister Kline, get more faith!" She then told me how she has been working on that and she has seen so many miracles this past couple of weeks and she said that she never ever wants to limit God because of HER lack of faith again. Well needless to say, with all the talking about faith in our exchange I have come to the conclusion that I just need more faith. But, how?

First I read Moroni 7:33-34 and this part of verse 33 really stuck out to me:
"...if ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me."
I have come to realize that there is a lot of words that I kind of know, but don’t really. So I looked up the definition of expedient and it said this:
1) advantageous (there was more to this but this is the only part that really matters)
2) means of achieving an end
This made me think about all the scriptures that have to do with faith but have a really important part that usually says something like "according to His will" I have come to realize that, at least in my position as a missionary, sometimes prayers may not be answered because we have a lack of faith, but also because it will not be advantageous to the Lords plan. So maybe we need to check what thing we are exerting our faith to get, and if its righteous then maybe just now it will not further Gods work. It doesn't mean it won’t later, but just right now everything has to be to the Lords advantage.
This made me think about God character, luckily for us we have a loving God who wants us to be happy, so often times he will send us tender mercies, no my lost earring won’t be advantageous to the Lords plan, but I had the faith that He could help my find it, and so He did! Tender Mercy.
In Stake Conference this weekend President Brown spoke and said this "Sacrifice is necessary in order for us to develop faith."
I went to the Bible Dictionary and read about Faith, I recommend this too everyone who reads this email, the section of faith in the Bible Dictionary is SO good! 
Here are some good points it made:
Faith must be centered on Jesus Christ in order to produce Salvation.
Faith=confidence
The Lord has certain attributes that are purposefully there to make it easier for us to trust him. Some examples of these are love, knowledge, justice, mercy, unchangeableness, and power. 
Faith is strengthened when we hear it! I loved this point, this lead me to ask a few questions of myself, and if anyone is feeling a lack of faith they should consider these questions too.
·         Are we paying attention in Church? 
·         Do we listen or tune out during fast and testimony meetings?
·         Do we attend and participate in all other auxiliary classes (Sunday school, relief society, priesthood)
·         Do we read the scriptures diligently?
·         Do we re-view the teachings of our modern day prophets and listen to their witnesses of Jesus Christ and testimonies of this Gospel?
·         Are we listening to the witnesses of the spirit to us?
The Bible Dictionary also says that "strong faith is developed by obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ." This brings me back to what President Brown said. It is not easy to be obedient, that can be a sacrifice, and we HAVE to sacrifice to gain faith. If the commandments don’t feel like a sacrifice anymore start looking deeper. Pray and ask God what things you do are displeasing to Him. And fix it! Change the little minute things, (connecting with last week, maybe we should be a little kinder). 
This next thing I studied is my favorite part. Jacob 4: 6-7 

6 Wherefore, we search the prophets, and we have many revelations and the spirit of aprophecy; and having all these bwitnesses we obtain a hope, and our faith becometh unshaken, insomuch that we truly can ccommand in the dname of Jesus and the very trees obey us, or the mountains, or the waves of the sea.
 7 Nevertheless, the Lord God showeth us our aweakness that we may know that it is by his bgrace, and his great condescensions unto the children of men, that we have power to do these things.
My thoughts on this scripture: Weakness is not a lack of faith. This makes me think of the scripture Ether 12:27, as we draw closer to God he shows us our weaknesses so that we may be humble, so that we may more fully trust Him! In many scriptures it says to exercise our faith. So I think about exercising and how you won’t gain muscle if don’t push past the trembling arms and the times of just pure struggle, pain, and sweat! The same applies in gaining greater faith. There will be times when we feel weak, we see our spiritual weakness, and we feel like we are not gaining anything, not moving forward but drowning! It’s in these times that we need to push harder than ever. God shows us our weaknesses when we come near him so that our weaknesses can be made into strengths. That has been what I have been going through, I am tired and feel weak in my faith right now, but instead of just giving in, I need to push harder!
So moral of this very long lesson, I am sorry for my peachiness today but I just loved my study today, here are 5 things to strengthen our faith.
  1. Obedience-Start with obeying the commandments, then look closer and refine!
  2. Learn who our Savior is
  3. Learn the word of God and HEAR others testimonies
  4. Ask yourself if what you are searching for or waiting for or working towards will further Gods plan, if not try adjusting your search, what will further the Lords work.
  5. Recognize and experience weakness and push past them.
So that was my study, I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I loved talking about it.

Now for a quick rap up of my week, since my weeks are getting more and more boring to talk about! Haha I am kidding. This week as for investigators we visited Paul twice, and he once again said he was going to come to stake conference, but didn't. I still don’t know what we can do more about this, we will just have to take it as we can I guess; But both the lessons were really good and he is progressing. We also saw Scott (the 10 year old) that was a harder lesson, sometimes his mum and him don’t get a long and it makes for a hard lesson to feel the spirit in. We just had a quick drop by Agnes this week and set up another appointment. While on exchanges, Sister Jacques and Sister Ricks were able to visit Alison, a long time investigator, which was good because we haven’t been able to get in to contact with her. Since she let them come when I wasn't


 there, I am possibly seeing a trend that maybe involves her not liking me! Oh well, we will continue to try, I haven’t done anything that I know of to offend her, so I don’t know. We will see. We have a set return appointment with her, so hopefully that one sticks.

As for the Carey family that we were so excited about last week, Donna was sick and their house was hectic so they didn’t let us in, but fingers crossed for this next Sunday. We had some really good finding times and got quite a few potential investigators and return appointments. So far none of them have stuck out the appointment but we still have a few this week. Including one really promising one with a guy named Kirk so hopefully that works out well!

We went on exchanges and right before them I got a cold, well still do. It’s a nasty cold though, all in my sinuses. But when you’re on exchanges you can’t really ask to spend some time home because it’s their area, their day plans, and you’re supposed to be learning from them, so I just kind of stuck it out, even though it was raining all day and we were soaked! Haha

We had Stake conference this weekend; Sister Jacques gave a great talk in it! I was so proud of her. Marie and Victoria came to the Saturday night session, so it was good to see them. We met with the normal less actives, Sister Procter, Christine, Sister Betty, and we were able to catch the Irvine’s. Things are going good with the less actives I guess, but I really wish there was faster progress. Sister Jacques and I will have to really think on how we can help speed the process on a bit and get these people back to church! All in all we have had a good week! I really enjoyed my exchange and we were really close to our number of lesson goals, and our joint teach lessons are going slowly up in numbers! So I feel proud of this week that’s for sure! Well I better go. I love you all and I hope you have a great week!

Get more faith!

P.S. The reason for the caption, it "snowed" a couple of times this week, and by snow I actually mean it “White Slushed”. Fun..... I miss Colorado snow!
