Okay this week was really good. On Monday night we had a FHE with our investigator Franco. He is just such a cool guy and is genuinely wanting to find and to know the truth. We had it at the hales house. Their house is SO cool. Mom you would love it. They live out in the country and like their house is just like this way cool cabin and it's like on a farm. They own so many acres of land too. And they 130 chickens and like this huge green house too. Well we had dinner and then had like a way good lesson about the restoration. And brother and sister Hales killed it!!!! Franco loved it. So much fun.
Also We met this lady Maria who we have been trying to contact and visit. Finally we were able to have a lesson with her! She is great. Way cute lady with 3 really cute boys. We taught her the restoration and she seemed to really like it. Also we invited her to be baptized on the first lesson! What. We have never done that so that was a little scary. But it was good. We just did a soft invite and asked if she came to find these things to be true would she follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized. She said yes!! Woot woot. We can't wait to go back and meet with her.
It was sister nobles youngest sons, Anthony, birthday this last week too and she invited us for dinner and cake. We had fish tacos and they were delicious. Who would have come to see the day when I would eat fish tacos?? Haha well it came and it was delicious. The mission is really changing me..... I also had a burrito this last week that had tons of guacamole and I loved it.... Who am I becoming? Haha just kidding but really. It was a fun time! That family is great!!! And so awesome to us missionaries.
On Friday we went up to Franklin and had a great lesson with this guy Richard, who was actually found by the elders in Franklin and given to us. He is way cool. He is super involved with his church but loves the lord more than anything I think. We are hoping to help him understand priesthood and the restoration of priesthood.
On Saturday we had a great day too!!!! The best. We went back to the hales but this time we had a lesson with Felipe and Olivia!!! It was great. They brought their kids too. We had a great lesson on families and we read the proclamation to the family together and discussed it. It went great and Olivia was all over it. After they invited us to stay for lunch. It was so cool. Hermana Torres and I got to go and cute the lettuce from the green house and everything! So fun. And then we got to go collect the chicken eggs and feed the chickens too. We forgot to bring our iPads so we didn't get any pictures... :( but we will be back up there in the next few weeks and we will get some more pictures!!!
We also have been teaching this family, we call them "the 7 girls" because it's a family that has 7 girls ages 17-2! Crazy. But we have really only teaching the dad and 3 of the girls. The mom is never home because she is always working, it's pretty sad.... Those girlies just need a mom. The dad is really cool. But yesterday the 3 girls came to church!! Natalie (10) Melanie (9) and Amanda (7) and they loved it!!!!! Their dad couldn't come but is going to come next week :) we get to have fast Sunday in Spanish and we had 30 people come this last time. It was great!!! :)
Overall things are going great. The weather has been pretty nice and not too cold. I am really starting to love this area more and more. I am so grateful for the chance that I have to be a missionary at this time. Also we are have a member of the 70 come to our zone conference Friday!! Crazy. His name is elder Rundland, I'm not sure if I spelled that right or not...
Sounds like things are going good back at home. I'm glad Megan's funeral went well and everything. She is such a sweet heart. I'm sorry to hear about no snow yet.... The worst! I'm actually hoping we don't get any snow because if we do I will probably get homesick and we all know we don't want that to happen. Haha. Are you guys having a Santa Claus party too??? Sounds fun. Also exciting about the utes! $10 says you all get your Christmas gift and a trip to Vegas..... Haha that will be fun! Well I love you all so much! Have a great week :)
