It is so good to hear from everyone. Thank you for all the letters, prayers, and support. I feel it and I am so grateful. I love Sister Andrew. I am sad though because she is losing her accent. haha It was funny before I never got told that I had an accent but now that I am with her people all of a sudden think I have one... anyways we are getting along well. She is taking the lead more and more and this makes me happy. She is a great missionary. I am so excited for you Katelyn!! You will do an amazing job training. That dear sister is so blessed. She will have an amazing area and an amazing trainer! She will have a wonderful foundation for her entire mission. Some things that really helped me were Elder Scott's talk in the last general conference. It is so important that you let her know that you trust her and let her know that even though she is brand new you are equally yoked and you need her as much as she needs you. One more thing I would say is to make sure you ALWAYS do comp inventory. Just let her feel your love and all will fall into place. You will do wonderful and accomplish much good for the Lord together.
My favorite part about this week was all of the Member missionary work! On Thursday all of our lessons were member referrals!! Miracle! The members are really taking the family mission plans to heart and we are seeing wonderful things happen. On Thursday morning we had a member call us saying she wanted us to meet her at the church so we could give her friend a chapel tour! Later that day we had another chapel tour with a family that are good friends of Neida's. They have little kids ages 7, 5, and 1 so Sister Andrew had an awesome idea to have make the tour into a scavenger hunt. It was so fun and all the kids enjoyed it and loved being at the church. It is not everyday we have to 2 chapel tours! I am so grateful... The church building is a great missionary tool. I love our dear members. We have established a high level of trust with them and I am so grateful for this. That is just one of the many reasons I am grateful to have spent much time in this area is because of the miracles and relationships we have made with the members.
The best thing happened on Saturday... Victor, Alex, and Mimi all went to the Temple to do baptisms!!! The ward had a "New Members Temple Trip". Neida wanted to go but unfortunately had to work. They all loved it!!!!! They are doing so well. I love there family so much!!
We are having a district activity later on today... We are going to play Volleyball and I am going to make taco pizza... it should be fun. We have the best district ever.
Have a great week!
