This week was amazing!

Email - August 12, 2013

This week was amazing!  On Tuesday, we were walking down a street that we walk down quite a bit.  I noticed a blonde girl sitting down, one who I have seen before.  So, I stopped and told Elder Buglass that we needed to go talk to her.  So, I went and plopped down right beside her and just started talking to her.  I asked her if she believed in God and asked her what struggles she was having in her life and such.  I shared a few scriptures with her as well.  Long story short, we talked for about 45 minutes.  Her name is J____.  And, after our long conversation, I just felt like I should ask her about, I did...and, she said she had never been baptized, so I invited her to be baptized and she accepted!  We even set a date for September 14th!  Ah, so, hopefully, things work out there!  Ah, it was a miracle.  I learned it is definitely important to ALWAYS follow the feelings you get to do something.

Elder Mannucci, from Italy, is our district leader.  He and I were on exchange from Thursday morning to Friday morning.

The work is progressing here and I'm so excited!

A ward member, Dave, is an amazing cook and has us over for dinner every week.  We ate there on Saturday night.  It was incredible!  I'll send you a picture I took with him.

Also, I got your package on Friday!  Thank you so much for the pictures and the address book!  That will be so handy!!  You're the best!

I love you all and miss you a ton!  Oh, and by the way, mum, keep up the blog.  I will do my best to be better at sharing experiences!!
