Week #85

Hello mother,

well this week was really good and very busy we had a lot of appointments this week. We started off the week by meeting with a members cousin. There is a member here in town named Nicole, she recently moved here from Alberta and she has a lot of family in and around Steinbach. Her cousins name is Mark he is a really good guy he had us over for supper and we had a really good time he likes us a lot and we shared a short message, good things to come and he agreed with everything we shared with him. He needs help finishing his basement so hopefully we will get to help him out. He is really busy he is a doctor for farm animals or I think sells medicine to farmers.

On Tuesday we had lunch with Jeannine and following that a little bit later we had dinner with the Fisk family. They are a great family. Wednesday we saw Gord, who is a less active, and we taught him about the atonement he said he is wiling to come to church he said he has a nurse come and check on him on Sunday and he never knows when, so that's why he cant make it right now, he's like 82 he is old but looks young. Following that night we made the Valdez family dinner and we had a feast. Sadly though they told us that Johnny the father of the De Vera family doesn't want us to come and do teachings any more he is not wiling but Marlyn and the daughter are really receptive and really want to learn more. Opposition in all things hey?

We had a really good lesson with Jeannine. We shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then we got into a really deep conversation about why we were here and what we knew to be true. We bore our testimonies about the plan of salvation and the restoration the spirit was so strong.  Jeannine said that that night she couldn't sleep and that she was writing in her journal everything that happened that night and what she felt.

Thursday we met with this guy Malcolm he is a native fella and he was telling Jeannine that he didn't like Mormon missionaries because he goes to Jeannine's roommates bible study. Any way he walked out of the bible study and we were talking with him and he was saying how he liked hip hop so I threw him a beat and said I used to produce a lot of music back home and so he wanted us to come over so we went over and I made him a really good beat and now he likes us and wants us to come over more so we will turn this opportunity into teaching very soon.

Saturday we went to the Peters for dinner and it was really really good we had a lot of spiritual conversations.  We gave Renate a Book of Mormon and we wrote our testimonies in it and we got a text from her later that night saying that as she was reading our words of what we wrote she was just crying.  They are progressing.  Still slow progress but it is real growth with them.

Well that's it for my week it was a really good week and this one will be great as well  :)

Hope all is going well I love you mom and I love and miss all of you :)
