The Holy Ghost is the best!

My week was great! I felt like we did so much. We went over to our investigator's house who had had a really bad time at church her first Sunday.  Every crazy thing that could have happened did.  Someone was confirmed, the opening prayer was in Portuguese (so she thought we got up there and spoke in crazy tongues), the Sunday school class she is in wasn't good, and she didn't understand the lesson in Young Woman's.  She went home after that and said she would never go again and then she got a feeling that she should give it another try.  So she did, yesterday went great and she wants to be baptized! :D The Holy Ghost is the best!

Tuesday night to Wednesday night we were in Scituate, Connecticut.  It was our first time doing sister training stuff.  It was so much fun!  They live in the woods which is really cool.  They are staying at a member's home. :) We were able to help the sisters find productive things to do.  They were pretty stressed because they felt like there was no work to be done.  I got to see Sister Bailey! :)  That was really cool.  I am so blessed in this area. We always have things to do and I have not been stressed about wasting time.

We have been working with a less active for the last 7 weeks and when we went to visit her she read 18 chapters of the Book of Mormon by herself!! SO EXCITING. :)

There is another woman in the ward that we have been working on for the last 7 weeks as well.. Everyone, including the bishop, told us to let it go.  We couldn't do that.  One of the lessons we had with her was on serving each other in Zion.  We asked her how her and her husband served each other (her husband isn't a member) and she said that she rolls his cigarettes to save them money.  Oh dear.  She also has a cat that looks like it survived an atomic bomb explosion.  SHE CAME TO CHURCH and she STAYED ALL THREE HOURS.  This may not seem like big news, but it is. :D

We super cleaned a nasty kitchen. A member of our ward just moved into a new place and it needed some help. We even broke out the steel wool! :) I learned that from you momma.

We are fed so many beans. They are yucky, but I try to eat them anyways. Saturday was crazy! It was an alright day though.

I also hit my 5 month mark! What!?
