Well this week was over all good, many adventures and lots of teaching and finding moments!
So this last week we went tracting in the rain and found this lady sitting outside in just her underwear smoking. Yup that was awkward, but best part was meeting this super nice lady (Gwen)... but she is deaf. So we had a hard time communicating with her, but she wants to learn more. After trying to communicate for an hour we get her info and set up a return appointment for the next day! We were super stoked and were pretty much running around trying to find a member who knew ASL or any type of signing. Well we found someone... but she is moving this Saturday! But she comes with us and it was great! We talked about the BOM and she wanted one and wanted to come to church! She did! And she loved it, but it was hard having peeps interrupt for her. So we are trying to get Sisters on Temple square teach her via Skype! She gave us sign names and mine means Utah and sister An's is just her last name. lol!
We have been trying to set up a booth on campus since we are the YSA sisters and are YSA teaching pool is really small... like we just have LA's & RC's right now. Well it was an adventure thats for sure! We were trying to fill out some paper work so we can have a booth on campus, but the peeps there weren't available so we were asked to wait. So the Elders and us had lunch on campus. Its weird being at a university... Like all the students stared at us. lol They had no idea how to take us! And some of the faculty thought we were there for a job interview or something. But the peeps never showed up, so we are gonna keep trying!
While tracting we found a RC, who is in the air-force and just moved here. He just got married too! He is 20 and joined the church in October 2013 while he was in basic training. His wife is not a member and they want to keep learning! They came to the cottage meeting on Friday! This is where the RC's and members can get to know each other better by playing games and eating food! Just like FHE really. Jamie and Candace are just awesome! I really like them! :)
The Elders had a half family baptism on Saturday!!! It was super awesome! this family has been learning for a year now! They are the Walkers and just awesome! :) They have asked us Sisters to meet with their teenage daughters to help them to continue progress! :) And after they had a BBQ!
Have I mentioned that I love this area?!? After a dinner appointment this cute 3 year old girl was talking about Star Wars and so I asked her if she liked it? She said yes and I like the girls... do you like the boys in Star Wars? HAHAHHA It was just so unsuspected! lol :)
A scripture that has been helping me is Alma 38:5 And now my son, Shiblon, I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
I love y'all so much!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
