Church Tour

This week has been good. It started off with Sister Mecham deciding she wants to take Sister Boyce and I to China, Singapore, and Indonesia after our missions. So we're pretty excited for that! :DD

Then we had a wonderful miracle!!! :DD  We were looking through our day planner finalizing our plans and at 7 we had planned a church tour. we stared at it and thought. why do we have a CT there? We don't have anyone to give a CT to, but we decided to leave it and have faith that we would have a CT at 7. so we called Brother and Sister Folkman and told them we were going to have a church tour at 7 and that we wanted them to be the member fellowshippers. We were driving to a potentials house and Sister Boyce said, "Let's actually go see Melinda." So we went and saw Melinda and caught her just before she was leaving.  She told us to come back later and we told her we would help her unpack the boxes she was picking up. So we showed up later and we helped her and we talked. She showed us some tricks with her dog and Sister Boyce just looked at me and I looked at her, then I looked at Melinda and said "Would you like to go on a church tour?" and she said, "Yeah, sure when?" and I said "How about right now?" and she said, "Sure." So we went on a church tour and we put her on date for baptism for August 3rd!! :D Oh yeah!! and Melinda is moving to Florida!! She wants to stay in contact.

And now is funny story time!!!! So we went to an investigators house (I guess there more potentials) and Sheron was telling us this story when they were at the Eiffel Tower. They were in the elevator and she saw this man turning the crank for the elevator to go up. She thought, "that poor man. and his wife." and for 2 years she prayed for him and his wife, until one day she was talking about him with her family and they looked at her and said. "that man is wooden." She died. She had been praying for a wooden man for 2 years!!! We were dying of laughter!!! It was so funny!!! This family is just hilarious!! They have so many funny stories, but that one is one of my favorites!!! Well .... I think that's all I have to type about...

Have a great week!!! :DD

May the Spirit be with you

Out of Order

Note:  This letter is from July 1 and goes before the previous "New President" post chronologically, but I didn't get it till Leanne forwarded it to me today.  Sorry.  Now to the letter:

This week has been interesting.  Well actually, first off, we put Chloe on date for baptism!! For the  13TH!!! :DD So I'm going to have my first baptism!!! So that's exciting.

And we started teaching this Born Again Christan family. (They don't know it yet because they say they'll never be Mormon. but I know they will be). Their daughter, Nichole, loves ASL and horses. Her Mom, Sheren, says she needs to be more specific in her prayers. I guess she's been praying for a friend for Nichole who has high standards and such, and now she says she needs to add who is not a missionary so we can hang out. She's so funny.

Sister Meachum's (the lady who buys us groceries every week) husband has decided he doesn't want to be a member anymore because he can't feel the spirit, so we're starting to go over there and talk with them.  And it's official that they're my family in Washington. They said I could move in with them when I come out here again. Their daughter, Kylie, is adopted and was born deaf, so they're all fluent in ASL!!!! And she has special needs!!! And they want to adopt another special needs child!! They know all about the deaf branch and I learned there's a special needs branch!!!!! They gave me a Book of Mormon in ASL!!! I'm excited to watch it!!! :DD

"Jesus is the Christ and God lives!!"

May the Spirit be with you

New President

This week has been long and hard, but I'm doing well.

So, in the next few Costco Warehouse adds, an Australian Shepard will be in it. I know that dog. His name is Max. He's an award winning Agility dog. He's super nice!!!!

We met President Choi. He's really funny!!! Although, it seems like his main focus is marriage XP. He kept talking about marriage it was kinda funny....and hmm...yeah....

I hope Grammie will get better soon!!! I love getting her letters!!!!

President Choi just announced we're getting Facebook soon to use for missionary work. So I'm guessing that that means ipads are coming soon too, but I don't know.
May the Spirit be with you
