So we had a pretty exciting week! We were able to set a baptismal date with Ana so that is always good! The Lord has prepared her for sure! Her date is for April 30th! And she came to church and her granddaughter and great granddaughter and her great great granddaughter as well haha. She is incredible! She went on a temple tour with her granddaughter, Lymarie. They really liked it. And Lymarie and her daughter are also progressing! So they are the highlight of my life right now.
We had ward conference on Sunday and that was really good! The Stake President gave a real good talk on how we can learn and study, but we can never know until we experience it. and he talked about how that is how it is in the gospel and especially with repentance. He gave an example about how when he got to Florida, he had seen tv shows about riptides and what to do if you get caught in one and one day he was snorkling and he saw a turtle, so he was just watching it and watching it and then like 30 minutes earlier the turtle looks up at him and he could see in the turtle's eyes the expression of "what the heck are you doing?" And so he came out above water to find himself what seemed about 1 mile away from the shore! And he had learned about rip tides and what to do, but now he was experiencing it. He didn't tell us what he did or what happened, but he was speaking, so I imagine all turned out well haha.
We met a pretty cool Cuban lady this week who has been to church a couple times with her nephew who is a member and she likes it, so she might have some potential! :)
There is nothing greater than missionary work I am learning. It is missionary fun. President Hall gave a talk to bishops, wml's, ward missionaries, and the missionaries within our stake and he was really bold haha. He talked about how we are too prideful to pray sometimes and don't want to get on our knees and ask for blessings and help. It was one of my favorite talks that he has given and it was like 10 min. long. That's my PRESIDENT.
Hope you have an amazing week! We will! :) Thanks for your prayers!
