First off, we went on exchanges with the spanish sister training leaders this week. They went will and I was back with Sis. Smith for the day! The exchanges were cut short though because we had to go help with the funeral. There was a member of the ward who passed away last week (I think I mentioned it in my last email) and his funeral wasmorning. It went really well. It was just sad to see the wife and 3 little boys but I know that they will see them again because they were sealed together as a family in the temple. I am so grateful for the knowledge of the plan of salvation that we have that opportunity to live together for ever as families. After the funeral we helped serve the food and then cleaned up afterwards. They decorated it all cute with Spider Man everywhere because the 3 little boys and the dad loved spiderman.
We started doing morning workouts with a member in the ward. It helps us both get up and going. Its been fun. We have done like kickboxing and dancing kinda like zumba. There was also a reception this week that was beautiful might I just add ;) It was in a barn up on the bluff. Met a nice non member there as well that we were able to share a little bit about the gospel with her. Always looking for missionary opportunities ;)
We taught a lot this week and really saw the blessings that came from working our hardest when we had 5 investigators to church! It was so exciting! I think that is the most both my companion and I have had at church before. We also have been focusing on Earl a lot this week who is planning on getting baptized:) The Elders will also be having a baptism that day as well so it will be a double baptism! We taught Earl the Word of Wisdom and he is doing awesome! We threw away all his cigarettes and coffee and has been staying strong ever since. Earl is so stinking cute!
Yesterday at church there was a member that passed out because of low cholesterol or something like that during gospel principles. So we had to call the ambulance and they had to take her out on a stretcher. We went and visited her last night though at the hospital and she is doing well.
Speaking of the hospital, we got a text this morning from the plumbs saying that Earl went into the E.R last night because he was having a hard time breathing :( So we are going to go over tonight with the Elders and have them give him a blessing. We will be praying real hard so he will get out soon so that he can still be baptized this weekend because he is so ready to be baptized! He really is one of the most prepared people I have met to accept the gospel. He has such a silly personality. He reminds me of great grandpa a lot! I love him!
Well thats all the crazy things that happened this week. Hope yall are having a good time and staying safe! Love you!
