Las Palmas & Warm Springs: October 13-19

We've had a great week! We were able to go to the temple again for the new missionary temple trip! If that was the only thing that happened this week, it would have been a great week. But there's more!

We finally started meeting some of our investigators! We are teaching two young girls names Mikayla and Cali. They are so fantastic! They are the sweetest girls I have ever met and they're so smart! They know the Plan of Happiness really well. Their teaching record showed that all they had been taught was the Restoration, so we planned to teach them about the Plan of Salvation next. However, they had already been taught about it so we ended up teaching them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Teaching them is such a privilege.

We're also kind of teaching an older lady from France named Renee. An amazing family in our ward hosts Family Home Evening and invites her and then we get to teach her! Last Monday they had something else going on, but we were able to meet Renee at a fireside called Why I Believe yesterday! She is so funny! Her history is really vague so we're all pretty confused about some things, so we just roll with everything she throws at us.

We had a really awesome street contact! We were sitting outside of the front office of our apartment complex using the wifi for Sister Uata's iPad training and we met this guy from India named Rejo who is totally prepared to receive the gospel. He works in Minnesota and spends his weekends alternating between Nashville and Las Vegas, so he spends a ton of time traveling. Someone who sat next to him during a previous flight gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon with their testimony, name, and phone number written inside! It was awesome to see the effect that this member's actions had on Rejo!

At Ward Council on Sunday a member of the bishopric told us that he has a friend who is ready to get baptized! Basically, another Isaac! What an amazing answer to our fasting and prayers. By the way, Isaac got baptized on Saturday! I really wish I was able to be there, but we had lots to do in Warm Springs!

We also got to visit primary for the third hour in one ward for sharing time and we got to talk about missionary work! It was right after the Primary Program. I love how simple the gospel is! It's so amazing.

I finally found the devotional that inspired me to serve a mission. It's called Living with Purpose: the Importance of "Real Intent" and it is SO GREAT! It's a devotional given at BYUI and it can be found here. Read it or listen to it! It's seriously the best thing ever.

I love you all! As always, have a wonderful week!
