Ya well this week is skype so thats legit. Haha we will talk more to set up the time and everything. we still dont know forsure. its gonna be hard with church but we will figure it out. So thats awesome that it is 100 degrees in arizona but here it is cold...i hate winter here. But oh well im just gonna go out every day with a jacket and like 8 sweaters. nahh haha its not that cold. But still. Wow, ask elder Anderson how long he has been in the ward. because im pretty sure he was there when i left. Wow lots of people are already going home from the mission! And no mom, joe beecroft and augie aiono are in puerto rico. Eric is in nicaragua. But thats cool!
This week was really tiring...I dont know we walked a ton. We are still waiting for bikes but who knows if they will come. This week though, we do have a really cool story. So we went to contact someone that the missionaries used to teach. They werent in the apartment but we decided to knock a few doors. We knocked one and talked with an atheist that was friendly but didnt want anything..obviously. My companion started to go down the stairs to the first floor of the apartments but i stayed there looking at another apartment. I felt the spirit tell me to go there and just try. So i went and my companion came back up the stairs. A lady came out and she was painting. We offered our help and she thought about it but said no. But when we said something about being missionaries and teaching about Christ, she said, actually i was going to go to your church this week with my husband because his friend invited him. So a member invited this family because he felt that they were ready to receive the gospel and they showed interest. Really, the member did the main part of the work. But my point in telling this is that really the Spirit helps us know what we need to do. In this story, both the member and I were able to feel the Spirit and follow His promptings to help other people. I know that there are people in your lives that are ready to receive the gospel. The Spirit can tell you who these people are if you are willing to listen and follow his promptings. I am understanding the importance of recognizing the Spirit in our lives and it is truly amazing what he can do for us. God works through His Holy Ghost.
I love you all and hope all is well! See you family on Sunday for Skype!
