This week was nuts!! So first of all, Sister Empey went home on medical release on Tuesday :( It was sad to see her go! She was a great missionary and a very hard worker! And she loved her mission! So if any of you find yourself in Bunkerville, NV definitely stop in and say hello :)
With me being companionless.. I was in three different trios this week! It was fun! I got to work in four different areas too! So it was an adventurous week that flew by!! With all the craziness we were still able to do enough work in Silver Lake.
Ron and Maribelle- We weren't able to see them last week, but we are meeting with them tonight! So I'll let you know how it goes next week!
Sharmmany- She already left for California for the summer.. but the ward will pick her right back up when she gets home. She will also be going to girls camp! So thats fun :)
Jackie- We met her a few weeks ago. She is a young mom with two kids and her husband name is Cory. We were going to try and contact her again and no one was home.. so we start walking away and lo and behold-they started coming around the corner. She let us in and we talked to her for awhile. We set-up a return appointment for the next day. We went back and talk her the Restoration and left her with a Book of Mormon. She loved most of it. Joseph Smith she was a little more hesitant about, but she said she would read and pray! And we will see her this week again! She really wants an eternal family! And that can only be found in the gospel :) We love her she is a great mom :)
Ayla- A 15 year-old in our ward that can't be baptized until she is 16. We teach her the lessons and help her gain a testimony of the gospel. Like most teenagers she is simply going through the motions of things. After our lesson this week, she told us that due to some custody issues, she might be able to get baptized sooner! She said that was a wake-up call! So we committed her to read the Book of Mormon and start gaining her own testimony of it! She is excited about it, and a little nervous, because she felt that she had time! So its a blessing how our Heavenly Father works :)
I think that's all the people I want to update you on! I'm excited to spend my last few weeks here! My new companion is Sister Arnett :) I love her!!! She is such a cutie and we had the same trainer :) So it will be a fun last few weeks with her!
