Time for a couple of shoutouts!
Happy Birthday and one year anniversary to my brother, Trevor and his wife Cora! Love you guys <3
Happy Birthday to Grandma Nielsen!
And CONGRATS to Mom, Dave, and Dylan for getting sealed in the temple:) I am all smiles just thinking of it. Love you all! Families are forever <3
Thanks for all the emails and the prayers and love, I miss each of you and am so thankful for you all!
Not really sure where to start this week. It was a pretty successful week though with tons of lessons and 6 new investigators (of which we dropped a couple but we have a few very promising people). We're excited to start working with these new ones and get them progressing towards baptism!
Last week I talked all about the Spanish and Portuguese people ha. This week we threw in some Chinese! Used a bit of google translate (thank goodness for technology) but she understood most of our English. She only has an English Bible so she was so happy to get a Chinese Book of Mormon :)
There's a woman in our ward who is returning to the church with her 3 year old and 6 month old. She is the sweetest thing and has had a rough last few years. But we got to have dinner with her and a member in the ward who lives near her and that was a huge success! Also, we got some members to sign up to go out thereto have a huge service project for her, we'll be cleaning up her yard! yay, I love service
Inspired choice of food!!
After the Meeting we decided to have lunch at Firehouse Subs. GUESS WHO WAS THERE! The Murray family from Leesburg! AH. I was SO happy, I literally jumped out of my chair and ran up to them. If ya'll don't remember, they are returning to activity and little Kaylie and Cody got baptized last month after I left :)
Things are going well. Not much is new! Time keeps on flying. I know this one is short, but I hope you all know how much I love you and the Lord. The work of God will continue to go forth, regardless of what happens. How grateful I am to be a part of it! Try to find some way this week to come closer to the Savior :) Keep on being amazing and keep the letters and prayers coming!
Love you all,
P.S. To give you a hint of what Florida is like, there's a weird bug chilling by the keyboard as I type.
