Dear Family and Friends,
We survived transfers! Sister R and I are together fort another 6 weeks...at least!!!! This week we biked 59 miles and had 18 lessons. We are still working with Charlie and Jackie, our top 2 investigators, and hope to help them progress toward baptism this transfer. Prayers for them would be great!
We also went on exchanges last week. I stayed in the Arrowhead Ward with Sister Price. I don't really like exchanges because it's weird to have a temporary companion for the day, but it wasn't that bad. We had fun with each other, and now the Sister Training Leaders understand why we're so tired all the time. The hills in our area are killer!
This week Teancum (my bike) broke his toe. It was so sad. My pedal broke in half, so now I've got to figure out how to get that fixed. Hopefully they have pedals at Wal-Mart! It's just a little harder to pedal because my foot isn't balanced, but it's not that bad.
We also attended a pool party for Relief Society last week, but didn't swim of course. It was tempting, but we just talked with members and got to know them better. We also had several people come out that we invited, so that was great!
This morning Sister R and I played tennis with the J's and they kicked our butts, but we will get better and before this transfer is over we'll beat them...maybe. I didn't realize how much I missed tennis. It was so fun, and since Sister R and I both played in High School we are planning to play more often. It was great.
This week I also came up with a cool lesson. When we call 9-1-1 it's because we run into an emergency, so 9-1-1 is supposed help us out right? Well, I have come up with a way to get out of a spiritual emergency. In The Family Proclamation it says, "Successful...families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities." That's the 9 things. Then we learn in Moses 7:18 that we are to have "one heart and one mind", which represents the 1 and the other 1. I know that if we live by these principles then our families can receive help when we have spiritual emergencies. Remember that it doesn't mean that we won't have emergencies, but it does mean we will have help.
I hope everyone is having a great week.
The Best District Ever :) and we're staying the same!
