GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY - 50 YEARS!
Hello Mother Deary!
I'm so glad grandma was able to have a surprise birthday party!!!! (ERM ... THAT WOULD BE A 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY PARTY ... SHE'S NOT PAYING MUCH ATTENTION WHEN SHE READS MY EMAILS, HAHA!) You all are awesome for doing that for her! I know the trip was well worth it and glad you were able to see everyone! :D
This past week was awesome for us! We had MLC (Missionary Leadership Council) on Tuesday and talked about the results from last year and what we need to do this year to do better. We had wonderful trainings given by our assistants and President and Sister Meredith, and Sister Orantes and I gave our little spiel about Meet the Mormons being in the Visitor's Center and that it's a wonderful missionary tool. So bring people to see Meet the Mormons at the Mesa VC!!!!
We were also able to find 2 new investigators last week! Yay! One is a guy from China who visited Los Angeles a few weeks back and met missionaries there. They sent his info to us and he goes to UC Berkeley. He's very enthusiastic about learning! Another investigator we found is a miracle!! Sister Wang (who I served with in Moraga) and Sister Kwok found her in the Moraga ward on Sunday. She was sitting by herself and they didn't know who she was so they sat next to her. Lo and behold she is from Idaho, is here attending school and met with missionaries just recently before moving here. And since she's YSA aged we get to teach her! We met her last night and she is absolutely amazing. We saw many other blessings and miracles last week as well. We have 8 recent converts in our ward and soon to be 9 because T**** is getting baptized next week!!!!!! She is probably the biggest blessing we've had recently. She has so much faith, is so sweet and loving and is simply one of the most amazing people I've ever met!!! (Sister Orantes and I are going to take a trip to Brazil sometime in the future when she moves back to Brazil. Just fyi :-))
In conclusion, Heavenly Father never ceases to blow my mind. I love Him! And He loves me and you and everyone. Have a great week!!
