It has been a good week

Querido familia,

It's crazy to hear about the snow over there in Arkansas!  It sounds like you are making the most of it.  Nice job twinadoes!  That's awesome you're reading Harry Potter.  I still remember doing a Harry Potter marathon with Christy when we went to Uncle Brian's wedding.  The lemon sherbet ice cream was the best part.  

Good luck this week Blake in Conway!  Make sure to send any other newspaper articles!  That's good you guys got a chance to work on scouts.  How close are you to Eagle?  I miss hearing you guys play piano.  I am learning the intro to the District episodes on piano.  We watch it every day for companion study so it gets stuck in my head often.

"It's been a good week. Kyle Templeton was baptized this Saturday and confirmed Sunday with Chelsea and Bernadette! They are being well fellow-shipped into the ward. This Sunday at fast and testimony meeting, the focus was on missionary work. After stake conference, the dynamic of our ward is changing and focusing more on member missionary work. 

We just received a call from a mom of a family in our ward, the Dahls, who said she had a neat experience sharing the Gospel. She was driving down the road and saw a family of 5 walking. She passed them but had a strong feeling she needed to ask them if they needed a ride. She followed the prompting after some debate and stopped by and asked. They accepted. She let them know she is a member and used the willing and brief! They responded saying that they had talked to us, the missionaries before and already had a Book of Mormon. They were grateful she showed them so much kindness. She knows they live in Craig Ranch apartment complex, but is not for sure the address. We think the person she described is Ivan, one of our potential investigators. We'll try to find him and their family this week.

Last night the concert was amazing. The investigators we had coming with us cancelled last minute so we tried last minute to find two others that would like to come (we had 2 tickets). We stopped by the house of two former investigators and they said they'd love to come! They came and felt the Spirit very strong. We gave them copies of the Book of Mormon and committed them to read them. They also committed to come back to church!  It's amazing to see so many lives change through the Atonement of Jesus Christ."

I was so grateful to see that concert.  A couple years ago I watched a Mormon Message about it and ever since I wanted to watch it.  I was so amazed that it worked out that I could go two years later.  This is the mormon message I watched:

Thank you for your prayers.  They are answered.

Have a good week!
