Man... it was soooo good to hear all your voices on Sunday! Crazy that that is my last phone call out here to you guys! Anyways, we had a pretty sweet week!
You will never guess what happened... So last Sunday one of the couselors in the bishopric came up to us and asked us if we knew of anyone that would be good to give a short 5 minute or so talk about Mothers. We couldn't really think of anyone at the time, so he told us to give him a call if we could think of anyone. So as we were thinking about it through the week, Elder Morris and I both got the feeling that we should ask our investigator if he would like to. So on Friday, when we had a meeting with him we asked him, and he didn't even hesitate to say yes! So we were like SWEET!
Meanwhile, as Sunday got closer and closer, we were wondering how it all would work out, but everything went fine! He actually prepared material to talk on, and he did great! He didn't even hardly seem nervous! And the coolest part about it was, his was totally the best talk out of all the people that spoke, he was very insightful! He talked about how a lot of times we think that mothers just favor their children because they are their children, but he says that that is just us not recognizing the potential in others, and that mothers are able to do that because of their great love for their children. Pretty interesting!
So that was the highlight of our week, it will be interesting to see what happens in these coming weeks, with graduation and all, we are not sure what is going to happen, if we are going to lose most of our ward or not, and if we will get interns. We shall see!
Anyways, Love you guys, hope you have a great week!!!
