|Heading out to teach!|
To begin, I will start with the missionary work. So as of right now we currently have three solid investigators and each of them has a baptismal date set for the end of February. Sweet! So with L**, I will just say that she is super awesome and so prepared! She actually reads and prays when we commit her to do so which is a big change from the investigators I have been used to teaching. This past week she was out of town so we only saw her once, but we had a really awesome Plan of Salvation lesson with her that really helped answer the big questions of why am I here, where did I come from and where am I going. She really enjoyed the lesson and the member we brought with us really helped add to the spirit that was there and to helping her feel more fellow shipped and not alone. We have a set with her tonight so I am very excited to get her going again towards her B-date in a month or so!

Okay so also this week something amazing happened to us on Friday! We had just gotten back from dinner and I was feeling really sick because I’m pretty sure I have ruined my stomach from all the Hispanic food and hot salsas and spices every day. I get sick every time we eat, but anyways, I had the impression to text a member in the branch who has a friend named C** who they have been wanting us to teach. We hadn't been able to teach her and so I figured we never would, but I decided to text the member to ask if we could maybe meet with her some time in the future. Within like 20 seconds after sending the message, she responded back with, "She’s here right now! Come teach her!" I was shocked because to be honest our night plans looked pretty bad, but now I was on Cloud 9!! I was so excited. We taught her at the member’s home and set a B-date for the end of February. She came to Stake Conference yesterday and is excited to meet with us this upcoming week! Pretty sweet miracle!!
Also this week on an exchange, I taught English to a group of Cambodians. I was the instructor to help them study for their citizenship test coming up, it was hilarious! I had no clue what they were saying. All I did was read the questions and waited for their memorized responses in English. Ha-ha They were very loving and said I was" funny" so it was a fun experience.
