Who Knew Bolivar Could be Fun? - September 21, 2015


This has been a great week! Last Monday Sister Millett and I decided that we are going to throw ourselves a birthday party on conference weekend. It is right between our birthdays! It is going to be a blast, haha! We even got ourselves a cake mix and candles. We are pretty excited for it :) 

Saturday morning the stake had a stake relief society breakfast event with speakers. It was really good. It was all about changing your heart and becoming stronger in the gospel. It was really cool. It was a good reminder that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and he loves us so much. We had Tyler's baptism Saturday night. It was really awesome! The power didn't go off at this baptism so that was a plus. It was really sweet. His stepmom, Sister Lewis gave a really nice talk on baptism and the Holy Ghost. I'm so happy for Tyler. He is a really cool kid. Calvin baptized him, he just got home from his mission a couple months ago and they have been best friends since. They are complete goofs though! We had spent Saturday afternoon helping Sister Lewis make cookies and brownies for after the baptism. It was a really fun day. 

Tuesday we were in Buffalo finding people on the ward list that we didn't know. We saw a name on the list and I had never seen it before. We go and find the house. This woman answers the door while she is on the phone but she ushers us in. That never happens by the way. We always get told to go away or something where they just don't want us. Anyways, she is trying to talk to us while she is on hold with someone. We find out that she is who we were looking for. We sat and talked with her for awhile and got to know her better. We found out that she has been wanting to come to church for a couple weeks but didn't know what time and every time she has tried in the past it was stake conference or something so no one was there. We were able to tell her the time and invite her to church. AND, she came to church on Sunday! It was really neat! She only stayed for sacrament but she is going to stay the whole time next week. She is so sweet! I am so happy that Heavenly Father directed us to her! Definitely a miracle! 

We also saw another less active on Wednesday. She is younger, just got married and moved here. She has been to church a couple of times but not very often. She is super sweet and is willing to come on exchanges with us. And the missionaries in Utah were reteaching her the lessons and she wants us to start doing that so she can strengthen her testimony more and start being more active. We are so excited! It has been a week of miracles. Wednesday night we went to mutual and one of the members comes up to us and is like 'did you know there is this young man that has been coming every week for a year' and we had no idea! No one had told us! He moved in with one of the members this week and is going to start coming to church. We met him and he sounds pretty interested so hopefully we can start teaching him soon. 

I'm out of time but this was a week full of miracles. I am so grateful for everything that has happened. I'm so excited for women's conference this week, general conference next week, and stake conference the following week. We also have zone conference on Tuesday so there are lots of spiritual experience that are coming our way. I am so happy to listen to all the talks! They are always so full of inspiration and all that good stuff. It is going to be a great couple of weeks. 

I love you all and I love hearing from you.  Miss y'all lots and lots!

The members give us food all the time so that is the picture of the over flowing counter. We never go hungry thankfully #blessed.
