This week has been good. We started teaching a mother of three named Lorraine this week and she has been progressing really fast. She already seems like a member. We can see her being the water soon. She came to church this week and loved it. She accepted baptism and she wants to make sure she is baptized by proper authority. She is praying about it. She was contacted before by Elder Tye and Elder Whipple who gave her a book of mormon but they weren't able to start teaching her and lost contact maybe due to transfers. She was actually looking for her book of mormon the day before we contacted back into her. I am very grateful the Lord led us to her and has been preparing her to receive the restored gospel with all her heart. We are happy for this blessing and opportunity to teach her. She has begun her studying with the gospel tracks and the book of mormon making sure to complete the assignments we had given her. She is doing a lot of serious reflection and pondering to know if this is true and what God wants her to do. She also came to church this week! It was so exciting to walk in and see her already there early and waiting :) She loved church. I asked which part was her favorite and she was like, "all of them!" She considers us her Angels and knows God sent us to her. She has been reading in the bible a lot and had questions but has found answers already from the book of mormon. It's incredible how God is working so much with her and how the spirit is aiding, guiding, and blessing her. She has a pure heart and such great faith.
Saturday we had the service project of painting at the Prison Fellowship Building. It was fun to do a little work and serve. We also attended the sister's baptism for a lady named Paula. Her daughter was recently baptized and she followed in her footsteps. Elder Anderson performed the baptismal interview for it. We waited outside while the interview took place and we didn't think to lock the bikes since we were outside right there by them but we went back inside to do the paperwork and forgot about the bikes. One of the sisters had a thought to look outside and was shocked to see a little boy running off with her bike. They ran outside and ran after the boy and fortunately recovered the bike. It was crazy haha I found after that my bike had a flat and we were far from our area and the sister were near their apartment so I rode the pretty sister's bike back to our area and for the day haha We switched back later and fixed back up my bike.
So this week we had transfers! We received a call from the Assistants yesterday and we were both excited with anticipation to know what was going to happen. I was thinking I was going to be leaving since I've been here for 6 months. They told us that we will be staying together for another transfer! I'm excited to continue serving with Elder Anderson. It's been a great transfer and we are looking to make it another great one. Plus it means I get to continue teaching Lorraine and help her to enter into the waters of baptism!
Well that's all for this week. Until next time. I love you all very much!
Today we played ball for our P-Day activity :) It was fun! This is Lorraine and her most adorable daughter Alex! Alex got some cake from the Releif Society Anniversary cake they had at church and was stuffing her face full of cake haha super cute Don't they just look like they are already members? This is a photo of Alisean after a lesson. For a finding activity each Wednesday night we go ball at the court we went to for p-day and Alisean plays there. He is in a league and that's where they have practice and pick up games.
