March 23

Hi everyone!

Well, we didn't teach a lot of lessons this week, but the ones we did teach we really great. It's all about quality, not quantity. The beginning of our week was great. On Tuesday we had a full day. Right after our studies we helped some ladies in our branch move apartments and clean their old apartment. It was really good to finally be able to do some service. I love service! After that we ate lunch on our way to our appointment because we didn't have time to take a lunch that day. We had three appointments back to back which was awesome. Tuesday was a busy, full day but those days are the best. I love when you can get lost in the work.

We taught Edith on Wednesday the Law of Chastity and it ended up being a great lesson. She has a baptismal date for April 18 but we're probably going to have to change it because she's living with a guy and their not married and they have two little kids together. So we are hoping and praying that they can work things out so that she can be baptized. Every time we go over there we ask her how she's feeling about her baptismal date and usually she says good, but this time she said she had doubts. After talking with her for a little while we asked her why she wants to get baptized in this church and her answer was interesting. She said because every time she has a question about something we can answer it with something that makes sense. We explained to her that by the Spirit we are able to know what to say and how we understand her questions.

On Thursday we had a great lesson with a family that we haven't been able to meet with for about a month. We retaught the Restoration to them and this time it went really well. As it was getting towards the end of the lesson I kept getting a really strong prompting to ask them to be baptized. So I with the Spirit as my guide I invited them to be baptized and they all said YES! I am so grateful for the Spirit and that I am able recognize and act on His promptings. Never be afraid to act on a prompting from the Holy Ghost. He will always lead you in the right direction.

I love you all so much! Have a great week!
