Dear Family and Friends!
Happy 4th of July last week!
Last Monday I was able to go to Dinner with Doris and Sister Phillips from Lake Mary! They came down and took sister Stratman and I out to Dinner. They are so sweet I am so very blessed by the life long friends I have made here in Florida.
This week we taught T now a newly Baptized T! We could see the light in his eyes from following Jesus Christ. This week was kind of slow because we work mainly with Full Sail University Students and they are a year round school but they have one week of summer break and it was this week haha. We did have Zone Training Meeting on Thursday and It was really good. President Berry has challenged the whole mission to read the Book of Mormon in 100 Days. I don't even have 100 Days left... but we are asked to only study the Book of Mormon and Preach My Gospel in our Personal Studies. I was like oh man I just got to Jacob and overcame the 2 Nephi Isaiah chapters.haha But there have been so many blessings from reading the Book of Mormon. There is so much richness to be found in the scriptures. I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON! How cool is it that we have everything we need to be happy in this life in the scriptures?? We know of the Plan of Salvation that our families can be together forever. We know how we can use the Atonement in our lives to overcome all that is unfair in this life. And we know how we can be better disciples of Jesus Christ. What a recipe for Joy!
We taught our Gator R this week. We taught the rest of the Plan of Salvation and the spirit was so strong. He opened up to us about some concerns he has about some things he knows are coming. Like us asking him to live the Word of Wisdom. He is really concerned how his family will react. But He is doing awesome! He loves coming to church and he feels the spirit! We are going on a Temple Tour with him this Wednesday so that will be fun!
Friday was 4th of July! We weekly Planned most of the Day then we went with our investigator, K and the Goldenrod Sisters to a Park in Winter Springs. Which is in my old area, Lake Mary. It was so much fun! We walked around, got some kettle Corn, they had this band playing and they were playing such good Music! They even sang " I can call you Betty and Betty when you call me you can call me AL!!!" Enter whistle thingy solo! Tender Mercy of the Lord I was having a blast! Then we stayed for the Fireworks. It was a great fourth of July!
Saturday we taught a lot of members and a Recent Convert, N. He is so nice. We went to teach him and he had some concerns about something he read in 1st Nephi and because of the Book of Mormon challenge we had just read the exact verse he had a question about that morning. Coincidence? I think NOT! haha It was so cool! Book of Mormon Miracle!
Sunday T got confirmed!!! Oh man he is just shining bright! We barely even saw him Sunday at Church he was just being a busy body talking to the Bishop and the Elders Quorum President. It was awesome. I am so excited for the things that are ahead for him.
We had a great week this past week. This Friday we get to Go to the Temple and do a session! I am so excited I can hardly contain it! I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Keep Rockin the Health World Chris and Dad!! I am one Proud Sister Missionary of her Pappi and Brotha!
