A goal for 23 acts of Service in a day!

Ya' te' hey!
We had a really nice sunny week until Sunday and today it's snowing. 
This week flew by! Probably because preparation day was on TuesdayTuesday night we got to teach Austin again and he is doing soooo well! He is preparing for a mission and had a lot of questions! The spirit was very strong in that lesson and it was incredible!

Wednesday was Sister Thompson's 23rd Birthday and I made her breakfast! She wanted to do 23 acts of service on her birthday to help her stay turning outward to others. We only were able to get 8, but oh well. I loved the Idea and I think I'll do the same for my birthday (only it will be 21).

We had a lesson with Cassie Wednesday night about the temple again just to help her focus her sights on the temple since that is her next step! Also that night we had dinner with some of the Young Single Adults and we gave them 8 minutes to make a list of every non-member they know and have known. We then all got down on our knees and prayed and asked Heavenly Father who on their lists are ready for the gospel. We sat for another 8 to 10 minutes and they put a check-mark next to those that they felt prompted to do so. We will be following up with them to see if they contacted any of those people (because that's what we committed them to do). This was one of the things that we learned from Elder Arnold when he came! The Assistants had already started it (because they got to spend a little time with Elder Arnold before the mission tour) and they have found a lot of success through it already!

Thursday we met a new less-active named Jessen who wants to get back into the church. She's really nice and likes a lot of the same things that I do. We also went to go do some family history with Cassie, but the Family History Center was closed because the building was being  deep cleaned for the week :(

Friday we got a new investigator named Brandi! Mike brought her to stake conference last Sunday and introduced us afterward. We then set up an appointment and got to teach her this Friday! I love her already! She is excited to learn more, and loves the idea of eternal families. She also loves that we focus not just on Christ's death, but also his life (because she asked why we don't have the crucifix)!

Saturday was Cassie's baptism!!!!! It was such a good baptism and I know that she loved it and felt the spirit because she gave me the biggest hug afterwards! (and normally her hugs are pretty soft). We also got to spend some time with her family afterward and I really like them. They are not really interested, but they are supportive of Cassie!

Yesterday, (Sunday) we saw Thomeson for a lesson (as well as at church!). We taught him all about eternal marriage...which is always interesting teaching considering I haven't gone through that yet.

We also got to have a lesson with a girl named Morgan who is one of those people that the Assistants to the president got from that list activity that they had done with some members. It was a little different because we were with the family who referred her and the Assistant's were there too. We felt a lot of pressure, but it went really well!

I love you all! Hagoonee!
