Hola Familia Y Amigos!
This week was faaaannnntasitc! On Monday night we knocked on Teresa's door and she let us right in! Although she had to work late on our return appointment, she is the elect! And I am excited to work with her.
Tuesday we stopped by some members to ask them "Who do you know?" And one of the members had a water leak, so they were fixing the pipes outside their house. They had a hole in their front yard that looked like an L, about 2 by 3 by 1 foot wide and 4 feet deep. So we offered to help fill it up! In our skirts! Beat that Elders! (See Blog Post: Beautiful Sisters serving in NC :) )
We also saw Sister Stocker on Tuesday night. She is working through a lot of things right now. So were helping her slowly to come back to church. Starting off with setting aside 2-3 hours on Sunday, so Sunday related activities.
We actually did quiet a lot of service this week! Which I love! We helped Sister Koch clean up her house (last week we helped her make Apple Sauce). She reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it. Ah well, it will come someday.
Elder Smith and I are singing "Come unto Christ" for Zone Meeting this week. It'll be good I hope!
The Trunk or Treat was this week. The first Ward activity besides Christmas for about 6 years! Crazy right? But it was pretty good. The light in the church parking lot weren't on, so it was super dark, but it was still fun! Guess what I dressed up as? Come on Guess! .... A Sister Missionary! I'm pretty sure Sister Pulley and I had the scariest costumes there! I mean no one opens the door for us and sometimes they scream "Ah Mormons!" Or slam the door!
Saturday was a great day as well! We met the Castillo's, although there's a bit of a language barrier, so we'll probably send them to the Spanish Elders, but we taught mom and three daughter. As far as we can tell, they accepted the Restoration, but we're not sure how much they understood it.
So to the subject. What do you think about during the sacrament? You don't have to answer out loud, or send me a reply, but think about it. What are you suppose to think about. We had a lesson in Relief Society yesterday about the sacrament and why we partake of it every week and not just on special occasions like other churches do. Mostly, we came up with, is because it's a covenant. And we need it! We need to make this covenant or promise, every week. Or we cannot be cleansed.
Last night Sister Fenton came out with us and we saw the Neese's. They are a sweet old southern couple. They don't come to church much because of health stuff, but they have the strongest testimonies, especially of family history and temple work. Speaking of, what have y'all don't lately with family history and temple work?
