June 10, 2014

It's been a beautiful week. Sunny with a little bit of rain every day to keep things cool. Somehow it always works out that we never get caught in a rainstorm. Tender mercies :) 

We had a great week. We met a girl on Thursday on the bus, had a teach with her and she came to church yesterday and loved it. My comp and I sang a musical number and a friend of one of the members played for us. it went really well, the ward liked it. I was sitting next to our friend and starting to worry if the meeting was getting to long for her then remembered to just trust the Spirit and prayed she would feel it. At the end of the meeting she said she really liked it. she was nervous at first to come but said that for some reason she felt comfortable there. Sacrament meeting is a special place, and we were glad she came. at the end she asked if she could come again:) 

We met a friend this week whom we introduced the Book of Mormon to. It was a good lesson but the next day he sent a text saying he didn't think religion was his thing. we asked if we could meet one last time before he gave it back and he agreed. we had a good discussion with him and talked about the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ and instead of him giving the Book of Mormon back at the end he agreed to be baptized when he gets an answer. The spirit is amazing. 

It's been great to notice the blessings of praying always as we have really focused on it this week. 

You have had a fun packed week! Good that everyone had plenty of opportunity to brand and move cows and what not. Cool that Abbie and Miguel blessed McCray, how are they doing? How long does Annie get to stay? sounds fun. 

Trasie! send pictures. congrats! life is thrilling. i hope you have some fun activities coming up for YSA:) 

ha there's a little girl here about Kambrie's age (also always refers to her mom by her first name) and whenever she says something i just imagine that Kambrie is that old and can say whatever she feels as well! weird! hopefully the siding goes well. football camps and practices coming up sounds like!

Love you all, thanks for the emails. hope you have a wonderful week!

Hey family! If I remember correctly, the house is busy with lots of family right now! What an exciting week! congratulations Trasieturkeybaby! don't forget to send some pictures next week. Carolyn said that the lemonade is almost ready to go for Tuesday evening. I hope it's an enjoyable evening:)

We had another last minute miracle last night. We were about to head in for the night when we saw a guy walking his bike and we knew we needed to talk to him. We talked to him and turns out he had met with missionaries before and he had been out of the country and lost contact. The Lord has a way of keeping track of those who are prepared!

We have been trying to work with a certain less active lady in our ward and before this week have only been able to contact her once. She was never home when we stopped by and never answered the phone. Well this week she was home when we stopped by so we decided right there to make sure we had the right phone number. We called and her phone didn't ring (land line) so we checked the number and while she was repeating the number to my companion I started seeing if there was something wrong with the phone connection...you might have problems making phone connection if the phone isn't plugged into the wall... ha I'm not sure when the last time was that she used her phone! we dusted it off and tried again and it worked quite nicely! ha we have been able to be in good contact since :)

It's been a good week. We had a great fast and testimony meeting and a former member we have been working with came to church and was all dressed up and looked very nice. it was wonderful to hear him say how nice it was to be in church. There is no substitute for the spirit that is felt in the chapel.

The gospel is a wonderful blessing! I love it! I have been reading "Our Heritage" and the sacrifices our forefathers have made. it's humbling to hear their experiences and the degree of gratitude kept in their hearts even during the deepest of their trials.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

I love you all!

As missionaries our mission president has asked us to teach 5 different role plays to help train the members to do missionary work. It has been a lot of fun to share with the members the things we have learned to really bring the Lord's work together. This past week was fun, we did role plays with a family that lives a way out from the center and before we went in the house it was fun to see all the "farm life". Not a lot of that here so it was fun. They were a lot of fun to do a role play with, it's exciting to see members getting involved. After a lesson with one of our investigators our member just invited him over to her house for the next teach without us saying anything. It is such a blessing to have such willing members here to work with! We saw a miracle yesterday when we were going out to find a former member. When we got out to the area a realized i didn't write the house number so instead of knocking 200 doors looking for him we decided to start contacting potentials in the area. as we were walking we saw a guy outside and we ended up going to talk to him. He guessed that we were "Mormons" then went on to tell us that he is a member. Turns out his papers say he has moved and his number was wrong but we got his new number and we're in contact with him now!

Sounds like you have had a great week. so dad does that mean that you have got calving down to 80 days or that is what you are working towards? fun to have the family together next week. Maybe Kambrie the calf whisperer will teach Anbri her ways. I'm sure grandpa will love visiting as well. do you have any equipment malfunctions yet? how is grandpa doing? congratulations on the new calling, it should keep you on your toes :) scouts wasn't going to be my first guess! good thing Mark has volunteered to help...
. . . .

way cool that you got to have a chat with smith. small world! there are so many people i have talked to here that have family in america. wonder if she still has any close relatives here! 
. . . .

The next couple weeks sound like they will be busy at the house. fun to hear about family get togethers. tell everyone hello for me! Even though I wish i could be there I am so grateful I am right here right now. What a blessing it has been to serve as a missionary for the gospel. I love it. I am learning so much and earning a deeper conversion the Lord knew i would need. I love you all, have a great week!
