Three Stories

Bike Week!

Sorry, again I have only 20 minutes.

Well I am going to tell three stories:

1. The Spanish Branch changed the starting time from 10:00 to 1:00 and it was the most beautiful thing when three or four less active families and three or four active families all showed up at about 1:05pm!! :) 

2. The Hermanas had an activity where they brought the cutest nutritionist lady and she taught us how to make fun smoothies and sandwiches and stuff. Our non-member neighbor came, one of the hermanas invited her non-member friend, and the teacher wasn't a member either! It was so good. And so yummy.

3. Monday night. We started our bike week off strong by biking 3ish 4ish miles in the rain to our investigator's house. When we got there, her daughter wasn't feeling well and she needed to go to the hospital, but she doesn't speak any English. So we hopped in the car and went to the hospital with them! We got her all checked in and stuff fairly quickly. I guess we didn't really think it through because we were there for 2 1/2 or 3 hours! It was a cool experience to be able to translate words we usually don't use and help this lady and her suffering daughter. But we were very cold and wet so we asked for the heated blankets they keep in the hallway and that was nice. Eventually we had to call a member to come pick us up so we could go home!

It's been a really great week, we had exchanges with the Russellville Hermanas and Hna Keller and I are enjoying the few days we get to spend together! :) She is great. And the members here are super great too!
Found these pictures from a few months ago.

We get to use Skype now to teach as a back-up if we can't make it to see the person or to the meeting for whatever reason.\

Have a great week! Read the Book of Mormon!

Oh, yeah ... We have been really trying to explain the Book of Mormon better in a way showing that we are just happy and we want to share all the happiness! It's interesting though how when we pushed that a little more, the people we started teaching started rejecting more and more! It's cool though to feel the Spirit even though they don't always accept, it's good to know that I tried my best and I feel a confirmation that it's true.
