January 4, 2016
Hope y'all had a great New Years!!!! Can you already believe that it is 2016, that means I come home this year which is kind of weird. I enjoyed being able to talk with y'all and the family. It was so nice to be able to see everyone. Our family has grown so much. These past few weeks have been pretty crazy.
We didn't get a P-Day last week which was different. We got the car back which was really nice. This past week we got to go see Lona. We taught her the Restoration, which it has been a while since we have taught that so I was pretty nervous. But I could feel the spirit very strongly, which was nice. We were going to invite her to be baptized but it didn't feel right so we asked her to pray about it. We got to visit with Takina and Shunta. It has been a little bit since we have seen them. We got to talk with them and share lessons with her kids. We then invited her to come to church. It has been a long time since she has come since she was baptized. So we hope she comes. When we tracted this week, we didn't get much success but a couple of people opened their doors and we got to share a message with them.
So the Senior Missionaries, had given us a referral, The Stay’s and we got to help them move in. They moved in form New Orleans and they are a really nice couple. We got to see them yesterday and they were excited to see us. Steven had his guitar out so he started playing and singing Gospel music. It was pretty cool. He really loves our Savior and he was kind of all over the place. We were there for a long time. Finally we left after an hour or two. So for New Year’s we just tracted, helped the family move in and we went and hung out with Thelma for a little bit, but we didn't stay very long because Lord of the Rings was on TV so it was kind of distracting. Then we just hang at the apartment. So much fun right... not! But Burgess and I have had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs... at me, haha!!
On Sunday we didn’t have any investigators at church. Our church time has changed from 11 to 9 so it's a change for people, because they have had the same time for about 3 years. But we were pretty excited to see Takina there.
As you can see, nothing much has happened this week. It's getting cold now and it's still break. But everything will change.
We get transfer calls on Saturday. We are thinking Burgess will go because she has been here for about 4 and a half months, but we will see.
Oh so the Family member that sent me that letter was Kevin and Jeri.
Hope y'all have a great week with school starting back up. I want to wish Mikey and Dad a Happy Birthday and wish I could be there.
Love and Miss y'all!!!!!!
