Second Talk, Conference and Birthday Parties

Hola! This week was pretty good! We found a new family of five this week! We are so excited to be teaching them. They're the Cuenca Family from Mexico. Super sweet family. Theyre coming to mutual this week to see what it is like and then we have a lesson with them on Thursday. Libio, one of our investigators, came to church on sunday! he loved it :) Sister Nesbit and I also spoke at church on sunday. it was the first talk ive given since my first transfer, the times gone by soo fast. This week is transfers but only those that are being transferred are going to the meeting so i probably wont be there. Im pretty sure im staying in the area with sister nesbit. Im so excited for conference though! Its going to be sooo good! i think that conference is kind of like christmas for the missionaries ha, i love it! Sunday one of my favorite families invited us over to throw me a birthday party :) sooo ill be having delicious cuban food on my birthday :) Other than that nothing else is really is going on. I hope you all have a great week! Love you! Sister Adorable

Random Walks Can be Rewarding

Hola Familia! This past week we ran into a few challenges with the people that we are teaching. Roberto and Giovanni cant meet with us for a while so that was a bummer for us but well see if we can still get them to come to mutual and general conference with us. Were teaching this guy named Libio, he is awesome! Super prepared so we are working with him right now. One of our investigators Jennifer just had a baby so well stop by later on. Tuesday was leadership training and it was super good! Wednesday was pretty good too, nothing too exciting to report though. Thursday we had a delicious enchilada dinner. Super funny because my comp doesnt eat spicy food so Catalina made me super spicy enchiladas and gave my comp some that werent spicy at all. We also went and contacted a less active Jeanette that has a son that isnt baptized. She was really nice and we have an appointment with her tomorrow. Friday was good. We went and visited Yolanda Hernandez and she wasnt home. I felt like we should just randomly walk down her street. we got to the end of the street and turned around to head back when all of a sudden Yolanda and her kids come driving down that same road. They honked and asked us to come over. way cool. then we went and saw noemi, shes doing well. she is super funny. Saturday we did exchanges and i was with my friend sister druker. She is a temple square sister but she was doing her outbound mission here. She goes back to temple square on wednesday so it was really nice to serve with her. Hope paolo had a good birthday! SUnday was good. I found out that one of my friends that was serving in washington dc goes to one of the wards taht i serve in and that she gets back on wednesday, ill probably see her at some point ha THere was a stake fireside so we went to that and it was pretty good. Thats about all i have for this week. Hope you are all doing well! Have a great week! Love you! Sister Adorable

Former Jehovah's Witness and Baptisms

This week was pretty good. We got a sister referral on Monday so that was a huge blessing for us. Her name is Valerie and she is a 60-year old former Jehovah's Witness. She is really interested in the church. Its in english so its a little bit different than what im used to but still way cool. Wednesday night we had a really good lesson with a new person, Libio. His wife was taught by the missionaries in the past but now she doesnt want anything to do with them. Libio is a really great guy and wants to learn more, we're going back in a few days. Thursday we had a really good lesson with Monica! Sooo good! We read a scripture with her and she really opened up to us. She says that she is starting her divorce this week and that she has almost sold her shop at the swamp meet and that she wants to come to church. We were super excited for her. Saturday we went to temple square with valerie. We had some really great temple square sisters there with us. It was a really good lesson. She didnt say much but she really felt the spirit. Later that night we went over to Roberto and Giovanni's with Jorge. It was a really good lesson. They are so ready to get baptized! Just working with them so that they have the desire. We're thinking that we'll take another temple square trip this weekend. Sunday was good. That night we went and visited one of my favorite less active families (the Toledos) when we stopped by they were so excited to see us! They told me that theyve been going to church again consistently :) I was so happy when they told me that! That was pretty much my week this week. This week we have leadership training so ill be there on tuesday and wednesday. Other than that nothing else too exciting. Hope you all have a great week! Love you and miss you!! Sister Adorable

More Miracles

Hola Familia! I guess for my birthday maybe solid colored skirts that are easy to match? Thatd be good. The companionship is better and we are doing work. Thanks for your encouraging emails this week :) This week was alright. we saw some cool miracles. Yolanda, one of our Recent converts, decided to quit her job so that she could go to church on sundays. way cool! Her boys want to get baptized, probably sometime around the end of march. We have been working a lot on finding new people to teach this week. We went through all of the investigators that had been visited by missionaries before and contacted them. We knocked on one door and they said that they really werent interested so we asked them if there was anyone that they knew that might be. She pointed across the hall. We knocked on the door and a lady named Refugio answered the door. We shared a short message with her and asked her if there was a time that we could come back. She said friday at 7 but that she didnt live there, she actually lived somewhere else. We came back on friday and had an amazing lesson on the restoration. She really opened up to us. We invited her to be baptized and she readily accepted. It was such a blessing and a miracle. Thats about all i have for this week. I love you and miss you all! Sister Adorable

Training :)

Familia! Congrats on the call mandy! Im so excited for you, i think everyone in the salt lake mission now knows where youre going ha. Tash, super proud of you. Ill try to send a letter out today. Glad your talks went well mom and dad. This week was ok. Sister Harris finished her mission and went home. I am now training a new missionary, Sister Nesbit. Shes from new jersey. THis week we focused more on finding new people to teach. We contacted almost all of the formers and set up some return appointments for this week. Roberto and Giovanni (yolanda's kids) were on date but we went over towards the end of last week and they said that they felt really pressured and didnt want to get baptized yet so were just backing off a little bit. The branch president gave us a list of 10 people that he wants us to visit so well go and do that this week. Driving-not so fun in the snow but were being careful and weve been fine. We had interviews with president on Friday and thats always good. He told me that ill be here in the area until May 8 so i can finish training sister nesbit. Oh to answer your question, i dont know what i want for my birthday. Im sure that anything that you send me ill love :) Other than that theres nothing really new going on here. Hope you all have a great week. I love you! Sister Adorable
