Hello!! Wow sounds like yall had a semi good week, considering the UTES lost :( I was sitting in sacrament meeting and I heard these two brothers talking about the UTES and so I asked them and they told me the Utes lost at home to Arizona... Also that is so heartbreaking about Murray in the basketball tourney.. That is just so sad. But so amazing that lone peak lost! That's what I like to hear! Who did they lose too? That seriously is amazing! Okay this week was great!! Seriously so many miracles. First off, justin got baptized! it was a good baptism and I think he was really happy about it but like I have said before he doesn't have much emotion or expressions but I think he was pretty excited :) in overall it was a pretty good baptism! Also we had a mission wide conference this week! It's all about the new iPads we are going to be getting next week and the new system and software. I thought it was going to be kind of boring but it was really cool actually! They have made this cool new program called the last 6 weeks and you have to make this life plan on your iPad and present it to your stake president when you cme home. It's so amazing how cool technology is and how effective it is for missionary work. The sad thing is, our mission is now doing a facebook fast so we are off facebook for the next 2 months. But it will be good to get refocused on our purpose and improve our work with technology. Okay next miracles. BROOKE HAS A BAPTISMAL DATE!!! So we were sitting in our mission meeting and I looked at our phone and Brooke sent a text to us saying "Hermanas! I have a baptismal daTe!" WHAT?!? Who just picks their own date out of no where!? But she is getting baptized on March 28th! And her father inlaw is going to baptize her :) we are so excited for her! And last night we were teaching Brooke the word of wisdom, which she doesn't really have a problem with, besides like all southerners, sweet tea and green and black tea. BUT last night she agreed to live the word of wisdom and she let us dump out all her tea in her fridge! :) yahoo! I have such a strong testimony of the word of wisdom and how by the small and simple things we can receive the big things that Heavenly Father has in store for us! Also the day Brooke chose her baptismal date, her husband got a promotion at work! she said she had been praying for this promotion for a couple of months now, and the day she sets her baptismal date she gets it! Say what! Seriously I know that when we are obedient Heavenly Father will bless us! MIRACLES ARE SO REAL!! Next miracle was we got in to a less active part member family.
The moms name is Shamily, the daughter is Shamilka, and the son is Salim, and the dad is Jose. BUT the elders had been trying to teach them but they have been so cold but we went over and Shamily let us right in and it went great. But the other miracle was that she is from Puerto Rico and she talks like 500 mph and I was freaking out. I had never prayed so hard in my whole life for the gift of tongues. And it came! I was able to understand her and talk with her. I was so happy. Also yesterday was a great day at church! We had a great fast and testimony meeting too. I have just grown so much since being out on my mission and I just want to share my testimony with everyone I know! It's so amazing how when we share our testimony our testimony keeps growing and keeps getting stronger and stronger! The weather has been getting a little bit better but still pretty cold. But I am happy to say, no snow yet.... Fingers crossed that we don't get anymore of it... Mom to answer your question a lot of the people we are teaching are English but we are working with a lot of less active and part member Spanish families. Which is good! Our goal is to get a group of Hispanics here in Clarksville. I cannot believe that e comes home so soon! That is so crazy. That like literally blows my mind. So weird. Maybe she could come out here and find a nice military guy to mary and come on splits with us. We would have sooooo many member presents ;) Oh also i saw Elise at the mission wide conference and gave her a big hug to give to you mom and dad in case I don't go to transfer meeting. She said she would :) Well I hope yall have a great week and I hope mom you can have a good break from basketball before the craziness starts up! And I hope dad and the boys have fun in Vegas Vegas Vegas :) I love you all sooooo much! Have a great week! Xoxoxo Lizzy
