"My Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! Heyo!!!!!!!!!!"

Monday, May 25, 2014

Hope everyone is doing well today! Happy Memorial Day, I am reporting to you live from the Anderson's home... the library is closed today. We received Transfer news this morning and we are both staying here for another one!! Only Sis Bennion who has been here for a year is leaving! This week was a pretty good one for us, a really good one for us, we had a lot of neat things happen!! Here we are:

Monday - Last monday we were down in Crestview playing basketball at the gym there, completely free for anyone to use, and let me tell you baby....  they had some real ball players there playing! The starting point guard for Louisville University was there playing and it was intense. Needless to say we were on the other court! The Thomas's took us out to dinner and then we did some planning for our week!

Tuesday - Another District Meeting down the drain, it was a good one, not my best effort, but a good one! We did a little bit about how to help people keep our commitments! We came back and we did our correlation meeting and then we taught John Reyes after doing a little bit of Fam History! John went well, he is still struggling a lot. We ready 2 Nephi 29 with him, which talks about the Bible! We went and we saw Will Wilkinson, a lessactive guy his wife has been interested a little bit in the church, and we talked with him and he said to come back on Saturday to talk to his wife and so we were super pumped talked to him.

Wednesday -  We went in the morning and we Helped Mark Lassen and Simone in the yard, we helped them move some plants and water stuff. And then they fed us lunch and then we had a lesson with Mark! Super awesome with him this week... he is coming back! He is going to be rebaptized, or he wants to! We just had a lesson with him and we read out of the scriptures and talked about the Spirit, we found his old baptismal certificate and his priesthood certificate, so it brought back some memories, he has had his Book of Mormon out and he has been reading everyday and has been wanting us to come over! We then taught JR Strange out by Elliott's, Elliott declined to come with us, but we taught him the Restoration.. he believed every single thing! He knew there was more books out there and it didn't make any sense to him why it would have stopped with the apostles as far as revelation goes. But we don't know if he is beliveing everything just because he does that, or if he actually is growing and feeling the spirit, but he is one of the most perfect people that I have ever taught, everything clicked with him! 

Thursday - We went in the morning to John Reyes trial again.. and it was a waste, nothing happend, just got postponed again! Came home did our weekly planning and then we went and we gave Sandy Jack Brown a blessing and then we came back and we OYMEd around the lake and we met these 2 guys named Spencer and Derrick and we talked to them for close to two hours, we covered the plan of salvation and the restoration and the Book of Mormon it was awesome! Spencer didn't believe anything and thought we were of the devil, because we didn't believe in a triunion god... he believes that they are 2 seperate entities but one being, they can't even explain it, but by saying we don't know everything because god is omniscient?? He tries to explain it and I just say, what? But Derrick was more quiet and we got their info and he was interested, but because of Spencer he wasn't, but he texted us right after that and texted us again, so we are going to meet with him this week! We then did home teaching with Elder Habel. While we were talking to Derrick this dude named Mark came up we have ran into him at least 7 times, we got his info the first time and we really need to meet with him, Heavenly Father is working on him, his dad is a member and his GF married into a mormon family and spent a lot of time in Utah.... like it is crazy the correlations. He is a super spiritual dude, and preaches a lot of places.

Friday - My Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! Heyo!!!!!!!!!! We worked at the Thrift shop in the morning, we were trying to see Savannah, but she is just gone, she will not respond and we don't know where she is at. It is really reallly sad. We ate lunch at Ed's for my BDAY and the sisters and Bro Stripling showed. So then we did some OYMINg around the lake and we got super awesome couple named DeSean and Amber Bell, he is turning his life around, they were super excited about our message, so meeting with them this week! Then we did some chasing around, some things canceled... and then we finally saw Rosslyn, she has been dealing with some family problems. So we gave her a priesthood blessing and during the middle of it, she just burst into tears and broke down and then opened up a lot about what has been going on. We ate dinner in the evening with the Habels and Mark Lassen and wife were there. he had his guitar and he played tons of tunes for us and we shared a lesson on the Atonement and that is where he officially announced that he was coming back! And then my birthday ended, thank you all so much for the packages!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday - Hectic day we were running around a lot, we tried to see the Cobbs we have not been able to teach Maddie yet.. We taught Alewesha Jackson!!! And we got him with a Baptismal date for June 28th.. he hadn't read our full chapter assignment so we started reading 2 Nephi 2 with him and he brought it up about baptism and what is required for us to be saved! And so we talked all about it and talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ he is always gungo ho and the spirit is always present when we teach him! He always feel it and he is super excited for the 28th, he is going to pray each day he can make it. Our only thing is he didn't come to church, so we need to begin to lay down some expectations for him! Then we ate dinner at the Bishop's house.

Sunday - We didn't get anybody to church so that was a bummer! But the meetings were good... we had ward council and I got to give another baptismal interview after church to Ryan Pennington he is 10 and the Habels have been working with him baptism is this saturday. He is pretty special, I was worried about how it would go with him being so young, but he understands a lot and I was really impressed with him! After church the baptismal font since last week has not been draining, so the water is getting murky, so us and Bro Stripling got changed up and we grabbed Anderson's pump and we pumped out all of the water and we pulled the old one up and we got it fixed well figured out what the problem was. Then we visited the Wyman's a less active couple. he is a non member, so we are starting work with them. And then the Farris's, active family, they are absolutely hilarious. We are going to start teaching their son who just go out of prison. Then we saw Mark Lassen with Bro Anderson, it was awesome to have him there. He paved it all for him and what he has to do to come back. We are going by on Tuesday with Bro. Anderson and going to teach him and Simone the plan of salvation and going to give both of them priesthood blessings!

Good week this week family!!! We experienced a lot of blessings! I sure do love ya'll so much, so grateful for all of the packages and what not!!! Thank you so much!! love you !!!!!!!!!!
