Mini Missionary Stephanie!
Love this Sister!!
We had a great week this week!
We'll start with Tuesday. It started off great because we went to Cafe Rio!!!!!! I love that place so much. It never gets old. We did a lot of contacting that day and were able to find a couple of potentials. Then for dinner that night we went to Hna Brunettas, she is amazing! We were sharing stories about family members and the gospel and by the end of it we were all in tears. She loved the conference talk we shared with her about praying for loved one to come to the gospel and being that good example. It strengthened my testimony when she said that she needed that and was grateful. Then later that night we went ot the church building to see one of our investigators, Marco, who goes to the Book of Mormon class every Tuesday. We talked to him with our ward mission leader and two of the elders about how to help him stop drinking. Hno Romero was really blunt, but he needs that. After they gave him a blessing. It was a great experience and you could feel the spirit so strong and that he has the desire to change. Please keep him in your prayers. We also had really cool experience with two other members, where we read a scripture to them and it ended up being the answer to their prayers! We had no idea. I love being a missionary so much. The Lord really does help his children through others.
Then this weekend was just filled with cool things! First, I got to talk to my mission president one on one, and it was awesome! We just talked and he gave me some advice and it helped me so much. I love him! Then he sat in on our district meeting, and right as Elder Kimball was doing accountability, Elder Piercy started freaking out. His head started killing him and he was getting really pale and he kept asking his comp if he took his pills that morning, and then he was sweating, President asked him how urgent it was that he got his pills, Elder Piercy said it was urgent, so President and Elder Christensen took off and we were left there, me, Sister Warner, Elder Kimball and Elder Malpica, watching over Elder Piercy as he told us what to do if he started having a seizure. Come to find out, he has Epilepsy. So we sat and waited for them to come back with the meds, he took them, waited a couple minutes and then was good. haha it was so crazy. I was a little nervous, but not really cause he had two priesthood holders there :)
Then also on Friday, we got another Mini Missionary!!!!!! She was amazing, her name is Stephanie, and she's from 4th ward up in Hollywood! So it was so much fun for all of us to talk about Hollywood again. So Steph was baptized 4 years and ago, but was less active. But this last fall she came back to church and is now the secretary in the young womens, and her older brother just got baptized in November. She is 20 years old, and has been debating on whether to go on a mission or not. So she was with us for our lesson with Marco on Saturday, and we set a baptismal date with him!!!! Please pray for him! And then Sunday came and Rosa and her two kids came to church!!!!!! I was so happy that they came! They are so ready to be baptized. Hopefully this week we will be able to set a date with them as well :)
Then we had to take Stephanie back, and it was a sad moment, but she told us that she knows she is going on a mission now! Isn't that amazing! She will be an incredible missionary. I am so happy that we got to have her this weekend, she was so much fun and it helped me remember why I am out here.
Well I can't remember anything else, But it was a great week! I love you all so much! have a great week! I LOVE YOU THE MOST
