Hello!! This week was here and there exciting! Lots of work and lots of eating :-)
Tuesday, we had a lesson with our investigator children who are getting
baptized January 2, 2016! We taught them the Gospel of Jesus Christ lesson
and they each made their own staircase to heaven. It was super awesome.
They told us they want to get baptized sooner than January, but the momma
already took that weekend off work sooooooo , It is happening January 2. We are very happy.
Wednesday, was nothing but crashing into stuff! OOPS! We were leaving our
apartment building that morning for the day and out of no where this
shopping car appears in the middle of the sidewalk and OF COURSE I hit it
with the side of me and bounce into the middle of one of the busiest roads
in Rancho! GOD IS WATCHING OVER ME because LUCKILY no cars were in the road, but after I got back onto the sidewalk the road was busy again..... like
what?! I could have died. After that we went on and met all of our
appointments for the day and then went to dinner. On the way home from
dinner, Sister Huntington had a little oopsie. We were riding down hill on
the sidewalk and the road doesn't have much light on it. She was
riding in front of me and on the other side of the street was two other
young bicylist... so Sister Huntington decided to yell and encourage them
to keep going because they were heading for the steep hill. And while in
the process of yelling at them she hit a street sign pole and wrecked.
Flopping over a brick wall. (look below for a picture) LOL!!! I didn't laugh
at first because I went and made sure she was okay. Then once I heard that
she was laughing I let out sooooo much laughter and made her stay there so
I could take a couple pictures! hahahahahahaha! Aren't I the best companion
ever??? It was hilarious and I just kept telling her that
Satan was trying to distract her with the boys on the bikes and God was
smacking the sense back into her by placing that street sign there. :);) ;)
Thursday was THANKSGIVING! and we were at our investigator Victoria's
house. Who is the mother of Yolanda who is the mother of Nicole ,who are all
NOW investigators. The dinner was delicous and the conversation was great.
They are a beautiful family and are sooooo fun! Victoria and Yolanda
started talking to me about the spirit world and the after life and they
were asking soooo many questions. So Sister Huntington and I asked if we
could just teach them the Plan of Salvation lesson and that would hopefully answer
all of their questions. They were thrilled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we taught that
and it went extremely well. We taught about eternal familes and temples. They
all were amazed. Really thirsty to learn more. WE are invited to go back on
Tuesday to teach more about the priesthood and Joseph Smith :) Yolanda was
really intestested in temple sealings and how earthly marriages say "till
death do you part" and we say "for all time and all eternity." Her and
her husband love eachother soooooo much! I knew she would be eager to learn
more about that. ALL IN ALL it was an amazing lesson and we are looking
forward to be teaching them more.
Friday was a hard day. We were a bit homesick, but got through it by reading scriptures. I appreciate them and they help me very much.
Saturday was great! We visited our recent convert Kendra and her cute
little 5 year old Kaiden. We set up their Christmas tree and had a lesson
and dinner with them. They are so cute. WE love them!
Sunday, Sister Huntinton crashed again and bruised her tailbone...... so we
now have a car for a week!!!!!! HALLEJIUH! It's fun! We are driving a Jeep!
We also visited our favorite family! The Dickersons! :)
I am extremely happy out here. Being out during the holidays is really hard
but it is the best time! I love it. The Christmas lights keep me super
happy as well!
I challenage you all to find a way to serve this holiday season. Reach out
to people you normally wouln't reach out to. Everyone could use a nice warm
visit. Remember our Savior in all the things that you do. He is the most
I love you all and wish you a safe and Happy Holiday!
Be Kind and Have Courage!
