The Lord is throwing His children at us...

This week was fun! We had sister training on Tuesday in my old area. It was fun to go back again. :) We got to drive up there with the spanish sisters so I didn't have to drive.  Thankfully.  On Wednesday we had interviews with President Packard.  It was so good!  I talked to him for a long time, he is so awesome.  Wednesday morning we had a lesson with a less active and it was the weirdest thing I have ever experienced.  I don't even think I can explain why.  It was such a weird lesson.  I am pretty sure I left high.
We got 4 new investigators this week and they are all teenage girls between the ages of 13 and 16. :) They are all friends as well. They are so awesome and all so solid, it's fun to teach them.  Oh and also, the girls brought two new girls to church :)  The Lord is throwing His children at us.  I was telling them about what it's like to be a missionary and they all got so excited about it. :) Missions are definitely in their futures. :)

The 15 year old that is being baptized this weekend invited her whole family to come to her baptism, they are really supportive of her choice.  As far as I know her family isn't interested.  Hopefully that changes after they see her baptism.  She picked Love at Home as the hymn she wants sung  :)  Her dad is from the Dominican Republic and speaks only spanish so she can't ever talk to him, which is sad.  She wants to be an accountant. :)  She is really smart and funny.  I wish I was as awesome as her at her age.
We signed up to be volunteers at the local blood drive, I am so excited! :) It will be a lot of fun.
On Friday Kelly came out with us to visit a less active. :) It was good to see her and the kids. Brian and the kids were there (at church Sunday), I am calling them today to set up dinner sometime this week.  :)
Saturday night we taught a guy who speaks only french.. So I played with his two year old son. He was so cute! 
Did anyone watch the broadcast on Sunday? You should go watch it. :) Deal?
Today we are playing water balloon dodgeball.. :D  Oh and we haven't had any hot water in the last 5 days.  It's a bummer. Showering is no fun! It's okay though because cold water makes your hair healthy. :)

Sister Shea :)  She ordered us a special cake.  She is a cancer survivor and SO awesome!
