It is always nice to hear from all of you! It is fun to hear about all the things that you guys are up to! As for us this week, Elder Stoor and I have been working hard, we have been doing our very best to just find some new people to teach, and we had some pretty cool things happen this week! We have been pretty bummed about the family that we've been teaching for a while, because they were so great, and everything was going smoothly until they came to church, and then things kind of have slowed down.
We were visiting one of the Less-active members in our area, and she told us that she has wanted to come back to church for a while, but the only thing that has been holding her back is the fact that her husband doesn't like the church, apparently not for any particular reason, just that he doesn't know what it is about. So she said that they had been talking, and they think it would be best if they were able to meet with us, so that we can hopefully answer some of their questions!
And also, we met a new family this last week as well, and wouldn't you know it, they have 5 kids. Crazy how that happens, we haven't really started teaching them yet, but hopefully this week we will!
And on Sunday, one of the guys that we received as a referral and have been talking with on the phone, just randomly showed up to church! It was sweet, so we are meeting with him on Friday! So a lot of good things that are starting to happen!
Anyways, that is about it for this week! Thank you guys for all that you are doing for me!! You are seriously the best family that I could ask for! I Love you, and hope that you have an amazing week!
