I love seeing the Gospel touch peoples lives!

Ya' te' hey!
We got transfer news and Sister Garner and I are both staying! :) So it looks like I'll be sending her home at the end of the transfer!

This week was great! To be honest it's all a blur! 
On Monday, as a district we went to Hovenweep for a hike. It was lots of fun! I'll send physical pictures hopefully sometime soon, since these computers can't send them.

Tuesday, we saw Jerry and talked about family history with him and his wife Marty! They are seriously sooooo cute! We also saw Catrina (a recent convert) that night with the RS president. 

Wednesday we had a wonderful Zone Conference all focusing on how we can become more like the savior! It was soooooo good and I ended up being called on to give a short 5 minute talk on humility. After Zone Conference we did some walking since the weather was beautiful! We met some good potentials! We also had dinner with the Bells (a returning less-active family) that night and Payton Bell (the cutest 14 year old you will ever meet!) said that he loves passing the sacrament!!! :)

We went to mutual with the youth that night as well and talked with Payton while the others played kick-ball. (Payton can't do a lot of physical activity because of some medical he sat on the side). Parker unofficial girlfriend who is a non-member also joined us and we got talking to her for a while. She's not interested in taking the lessons right now but it seems like she has a lot of potential and one day will end up taking the lessons. She said she would like to come to church with them when Payton invited her!

Thursday we had interviews with President Adams. We also did some family history with Jerry! He was so excited about it all! We also saw Doris that night. She's still doing well, but it's definitely a challenge with her Alzheimer's!

Friday we had so many appointments that we had to do our weekly planning on Saturday instead! We saw Nichelle and talked about the law of chastity with her and her boyfriend. They said they'd have to talk about what they are going to do to live it.

We also saw Tanner (a recent convert) and he is doing soooo well! He and his wife Andi plan on going to the temple together for baptisms by the end of the month! (It will be his first time!)

Saturday we also got permission to go to a little bit (like 30-45 mins.) of the McCoy's baseball game to show our support for them (they are an investigator family)! It was fun and apparently Austin won both of his games!
We had dinner with the Chavez family that night as well and I seriously just love them! They make THE BEST enchiladas too!

Sunday we had a wonderful fast and testimony meeting! The spirit was very strong, and the Bishop gave a blessing on the ward! Jerry came to church too and he felt the spirit so much that he couldn't hold back his tears! We also had a lesson with him after church and talked about temples and read the talk "See yourself in the Temple" with him.
I love seeing how the gospel touches other's lives! I know that Jerry will make it to the temple again very soon! :)

I love you all have a great week!
