Amazing Week

Hello family! This week has been full of wonderful things, as usual. I
exchanged with Sister Smith, who is a bomb missionary. An AMAZING
teacher. I learned so much. We were tracting and felt we should keep
going, we did and met the sweetest old man, Jack. He is from England
and has the best accent. We were talking  and he told us a lot of
amazing stories that have brought him closer to God in his life. Not
sure why, but I felt like I should invite him to be baptized and did
and he said Yes! So Jack is working towards April 29th for baptism.
Can you believe That? I can’t! Our Father in Heaven continues to
surprise me with tender mercies each day. The Lord is so aware of His
children. It has been such a blessing to watch Him work in people’s
life, in mine as well. He is SO Good!
We got to help our Habitat for Humanity this week. It was really fun.
They are almost finished with the house and we washed down the super
dusty floors and ate at this heck sketchy Mexican Taco place. So
We had another great lesson with Likely, the woman we teach at the
bus stop. The Spirit was SO strong. And there were way too many
coincidences that made it clear God had sent us there.
We also had zone conference this week and talked about study journals
and the new Easter Video! So pumped for Easter!! We’ve been trying to
get Brother Derrick to use his study journal, he at least brought it
this week. Progress!
Also had another fun exchange with the trio. I went to Yorba Linda
with Sweet Sister Sainan & Pennington. We had Phó!! I’m going to miss
that food so Much!! I already had to say some goodbyes this week😿 I’m
so excited to see all yall, but I am going to miss these people so
much! I wish I could take them with me. There are good people wherever
you Go! And the more you get to know them, the more good you see in
them. This gospel is so good and so true.

A Week of Beautiful Things

We had a great past few weeks! Sorry I haven’t had much time to email,
but know all is well! We were able to go to the Newport Beach Temple
twice this week! The first time we went for ourselves which was a real
treat, because they just changed the policy and we only get to go ever
6 months now. I’m glad I had the chance to go with my zone once more!
We also had a temple grounds Tour, which went fabulously because 4
investigators came! It was a beautiful! It’s usually hard to get even
one and the Lord blessed us with four! So Brother O. came, he is
the husband of a member and coolest guy I know! We also had a woman named Martha
come! She loved the peace she felt on the temple grounds and felt
everything made sense! We are seeing real progress form her. Then the
C. Family came! A couple we have been working with. It ”twas a
wonderful day!
We also were so blessed with a fantastic lesson with the O’s. I met
him a while back, he is a less active the ward kind of didn’t realize
was there and his wife is not a member. We started teaching her and a
couple from the ward came with us and helped and we taught the Plan of
Salvation. It was wonderful!!! The Spirit is just so awesome. I feel
the more I worry about lessons and pray and worry the better they go!
That’s exactly what happened. They pray together and it has strengthen
their relationship so much! He got tears in his eyes when he talked
about It! If you have a sign I can’t other pray with them! Miracles
I love y’all so Much! Sorry for another short email, but I will see
you in 3 weeks!
