hola hola! Another great week here in the PNW,
This week we were so blessed to find 7 new investigators. WE were praying really hard to be able to find the people that God has prepared to hear this gospel this week because we've had a lot of people lose interest and our investigator pool was becoming pretty stagnant which left us sad and not having a lot of lessons. but we were SO BLESSED. Another testament to God knowing what we need and when we need it! We are so excited to start teaching these people :)
The coolest lesson was probably with a boy named Art. His family has been taught in the past and we found them again and he had never really learned but told us we could come back. When we came back to teach him we asked why he invited us over again and he said he wanted something better to talk about and how he knows that what were doing is good and he's ready to start having a relationship with God again. CAN YOU SAY PREPARED. He's so awesome. God is TOO GOOD.
Other cool things that happened this week! Our stake had a cool christmas tree expo activity where a bunch of people decorated trees and there was like a competiton. Of course, there were the Seahawks themed trees... classic. but who wouldve guessed on the other side of the gym... A BRONCOS THEMED TREE. YES THEY EXIST IN WASHINGTON AND I WAS SO STOKED. The picture is me with two of the kids of one of our Investigators, Jazmin. They said they'll become broncos fans someday too hahaha The bad choice we made Sunday night was to go contacting during the seahawks game... I have never heard so many "cant talk the game is on *slams door*". More reasons to hate the seahawks...
Today for pday we went hiking with a member we met in the English ward who recently returned from her mission in Oklahoma. She's awesome and has been coming with us to lessons and stuff but this hike was AMAZING. Made me realize how much I've missed nature, but seriously Washington is gorgeous. AND it was snowing the whole time! A good snow, like a not too cold kinda snow but still snow so you feel all happy and christmas-ey. It was a good break from the constant rain.
That's all I got this week. Can we believe its already December?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOTTIE!!!!!! Holy cow she's 2?! That's ridiculous. Can't wait to see the faces of my family in a short 3 weeks!!!
con mucho amor,
