Baptisms, Moving, Conference, Oh My!

 Such a good week, I don't even know where to start!

Sister Dorman had us for dinner and then after she invited people to come do a family home evening! Our investigator Bill came, it was really good, He is really picking up the Mormon language! Haha

We did service for sister Henry again, she is very particular about how her house gets cleaned so we always get a great lesson! She had us put on aprons and gloves and everything! Haha


This week we had zone meeting! It was so good! We have a "safeguards booklet" regarding our iPads and online missionary work. We talked about being aware of potential temptations and how to plan ahead to
avoid them! (I'm actually giving the same training this week in district meeting so we'll see how that goes!) one of my favorite quotes from it was "No member will ever make a serious mistake without first being warned by the promptings of the Holy Ghost!"

Also big surprise this week! We're moving! We live in an apartment 8 miles out of our area, and this week we got a call that they found a small house inside of our area that they are moving us to! Blessings!!

Us missionaries being creative when we forgot bowls
 We finally have our first official lesson with Mindy and Daniel! They have been coming to church with some members for a month now, and finally set up a time for us to see them! They are incredible! They
had us over for dinner, and then we taught the restoration. They have been studying a lot about Joseph smith, and have already read a 1/3 of the Book of Mormon! They love it all and couldn't wait to set a baptism date! We set May 2nd for them and their daughter to be baptized! We ended up coming back the next day to teach them the plan of salvation. In their past churches they have never heard anything about what happened before we came to earth! They loved learning about the pre-earth life and the degrees of heaven. Not only can they not wait for their baptism, but they can't wait to do baptisms at the temple! :)

General conference!! We have been so excited for conference all week! We bought Easter eggs and put flyers about general conference inside them to hand out! Easter morning was the best! Our bishops family had us missionaries come for a huge breakfast! And then 2 of our investigators came to the church for conference!



 

I especially loved the talk about dancing and learning to hear the music! I think that's such a great way to explain the commandments, once we realize how sweet they are to us, we will hear the music and want to keep dancing! I also loved the talk about the atonement and how by grace we are saved! We have and investigator who was trying to understand that concept! Perfect!

This intense bruise on my leg and foot! (No idea where or how I got them...)
I want to apologize in advance that I won't have a lot of time to email today, we are going to tour St. Augustine! The nations oldest city! I hope all of you have had a great Easter, and remembered the Savior! I have learned a lot about him this week. I know that he is risen! That he lives! And that He is here!

**Also next week is transfers so my p-day is on Tuesday instead!
