Week 24 7/6/2010

Courtneys letter didn't come til tuesday because of the holiday. Thanks to Brother Gelder for letting me know and for all the pictures. Just got home from girls camp so trying to catch up . Here she is...
Hello hello everyone!! Sounds like the family reunion was pretty exciting! Thanks for the pictures!

Lets see…we did a lot of tracting this week. Its so funny how people make excuses to not talk to us when we are tracting. Its like they feel like they have to justify themselves to us. We’ve gotten some people that tell us their entire schedule to tell us that they just don’t have time to squeeze us in, or we’ve gotten the “Im brewin my own beer right now, I don’t have time” lol. Apparently a lot of people do that out here cuz we’ve gotten that one a few times. We’ve had a couple of our investigators drop us and anna and leslie are both baptized now. Needless to say our teaching pool is draining pretty fast so im gonna be getting pretty good at tracting with how much we’ll be doin that this week.
So leslies baptism was on Saturday and it was amazing! Leslie was so happy! Her whole family came in from Alabama. Sister shields and I had to teach the restoration while leslie changed. And of course I was terrified of doing it in front of everyone. (mom, you know how I get. Lol) but it ended up being really good, the spirit was so strong and everyone was smiling throughout the entire baptism. Leslies son in law gary baptized her and after the baptism he came and just thanked us over and over again for teaching her. He said that their whole family never thought that this would happen in this life atleast. We really didn’t do anything, we were just the people that finally clicked with her and were able to help her connect all the dots. But im soo thankful for the opportunity that I had to be a part of it.
Well we’ve got another lady named Gretchen, she’s soo awesome! We started teaching her about 2 weeks ago. And she told us we weren’t going to convert her…..she’s getting baptized on the 24th of this month. She loves the book of mormon! She loves church and she loves just learning and the spirit that she feels when we teach her and when she reads and studies.
We’ve got zone conference tomorrow so we’re all lookin forward to meeting our new mission president and his wife. President and sister jergensen.
I LOVE this gospel and I love being out here and having the chance to teach and help people like anna, leslie and Gretchen. Even though its hard its totally worth it.
I love you all and have an awesome week!!!!!
Till next time
Sister C
