This past week has been so crazy! We were all over the place!
Our mission held a fireside for the members to invite friends and family
to this past weekend. It was done by Gladys Knight and it was amazing!
We went with one of our investigators on Saturday and it was fantastic.
D. ( our invest.) loved it. It was my first time meeting her. She
has a daughter who is getting ready to get married in a temple in California so she has been busy and stressed out of her mind so we haven't been able to meet with her at all for a while. She was really
nice and had a great sense of humor. The fireside was with a choir that Gladys Knight directs and it's unlike any kind of choir I have ever heard
before. Their music was so up beat and the epitome of "Gospel". It was
beautiful though and she bore her testimony how she came in contact with
the church and how she then joined it. I wish everyone in our mission boundaries would have had the opportunity to see it! It taught that we
are all God's children no matter our color, that we do things we don't
like some times simply to be obedient, and that we can give ourselves
to Christ today and it doesn't have to be tomorrow. (in other words - don't
procrastinate the day of your repentance:) Our stake generated 935
tickets for the event. Hopefully we will get a lot of referrals from it
had our last interviews with President Durrant. I can't believe that we
will be having a new mission president in just a couple of months.
prep day is almost over and I don't have any time left. It's been a crazy
day trying to get everything done. I'm excited to see y'all on Sunday via Skype. Sorry this is so short but just know that I love y'all! I'll
tell y'all all bout life here in Texas on Mothers Day.
