Buen Animo!

Hello! Happy new week!


​Happy Birthday Mom!!! :) I celebrated your birthday in a stake independence day activity. I ate some delicious enchiladas for you! :)

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Olvidarse- forget. As in, "Tuesday we were on exchanges here in my area and we went to contact people for an hour. We walked by house where an elderly member with memory loss lives. I knew it was her house and that her son was outside, but the sister who was with me didn't, so she contacted her son. He told us to come in to see his mom. We sang her a hymn and talked with her for a few minutes, in which time she asked the other sister 5 times where she was from and how long she'd been on her mission. By the end of the time we were there the other sister could hardly hold in her laughter. I'm pretty sure she'll never forget the time she did exchanges with me."
Con buen ánimo- cheerfully. As in, "Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed." Doctrine and Covenants 123:17

Well, you may have been waiting to see this...


​Our awesome investigator got baptized!! Woohoo!! We're so happy for him!
On Tuesday we went to review the baptismal interview questions with him and he was so prepared. He honestly investigated the gospel with such a sincere desire to change and live the right way. He is a great example, as is the family he lives with, who helped him the whole way. I am so grateful to have been a part of helping him prepare for his baptism.

Apart from that fantastic experience, we also found a great new investigator this week! A recent convert in the ward told us that he ran into her in the store and she told him that she'd seen him with us and she'd like to learn more about us. So we went to meet her with another member this week and she told us that she feels like something in her life is missing and when she'd seen us that she felt like maybe we had the answer. We're excited to visit her again tomorrow.

We're working hard here to do everything in our power to find people who are prepared to hear the message of the restoration. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement! Have a great week!
