Dear Family and Friends,
Well, last week was not the best week, but we did keep busy. We only had 10 lessons, but we set up a lot of appointments for this week!
We actually went tracting for an hour! We met a lot of people and left tons of pass along cards. We talked to Tom for a few minutes, and he wouldn't give us his phone number, so we gave him ours and told him to call us and we could set up an appointment. We didn't really think he'd call us (maybe we should have more faith), but Saturday he called us and we set up an appointment for Tuesday. I am so excited! He said, "Hey remember me? I would like you guys to come over and teach me a lesson." How cool is that? Miracles do happen!!!!
Debbie is still struggling with smoking, but she received her Patriarchal Blessing yesterday and she said she felt really good about it. We hope this will help her have more of an eternal perspective! She has such a strong testimony and we are working to get her to the temple!!
We also were biking down the street and we passed a member's house (they just moved in) and their 2 kids were jump roping out front. We asked if we could join them. So we jump roped with them for like 10 minutes. I forgot how hard that was...the picture will show how short these kids are :) I'm not a giant!
Sister J, Sister M, Sister R and I also had a watermelon eating contest. Guess who won? Yep, that's right, yours truly :) It was pretty crazy because Sister Johnson almost died, but God protects His missionaries and allowed her more time on this earth! Sister Martinez was close, but not close enough.
That's about it for this week. We are looking forward to a great week, ad I hope you are too! Love,
Jump roping :)
