Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalms 46:10-11

"Whosoever Putteth His Trust in Him...Shall Be Lifted Up" 2/25/2013

First off-

on Thursday!  

Now, moving on!  Sounds like y'all had a good week, really glad for you for that, except for dad, sounds like he's been pretty sick. But I hope he's feeling better and maybe having a little bit more time to rest this last week! And about all the upcoming weddings. Who is Abby marrying? And when is JR getting married, you can't just drop stuff like that as if it were nothing ha ha. But I'm glad that things are going well.  

Now about us and our investigators. We had a pretty good week investigator wise, we were able to get with a few people and teach some really good lessons.  Karla is absolutely stoked for baptism, she's so ready. She has come to church 3 times now and is just super super excited so we're really excited for that. I wish there was more to tell but it's just marvelous to see someone accept so easily the gospel and an absolute change in life, and the best part, she's doing it with a desire to help others, already talking about teaching her mom about the church and her friends and stuff, she's stoked and we're stoked!  

Amelia and Evelyn are also progressing, there's something that is holding them back, we can't figure out what it is but we're working with them. They're attending church every week but for some reason they aren't ready to accept a fecha for baptism, so maybe prayers for them wouldn't go amiss. We have a cita on Tuesday and we're hoping to put the fecha for the 9th of this month, they already have everything they need to be baptized. Just a little push from the spirit and we're set I think.  

About Adriana, she's also progressing great, she said that if she receives her answer she'd get baptized and just jump into the church, the best part is that she's going to get it, she's studying a ton and reading and praying and all of it, its super legit!  She also came to church yesterday so the progress we're seeing there is super good.  

In spite of all of this, I must confess that this week was super duper slow ha ha. EVERYTHING fell, we taught about half the number of lessons of a normal week.  But I read in Mosiah 23:13-24 and felt better, read it y'all, I won't ruin the surprise :) 

Well, I think that's it, I'm still happy, loving life and loving the mission.
