I love you all! You are so much fun. Thank you for the article. I will live, laugh and love as a missionary.
Things have been good in Lake City. We finally got in contact with this less-active lady in our Ward. We have been trying to find her house since I got here hahaha and we finally found it and got in both times we went. She is really trying to make changes in her life and come but she just can’t stand the thought of people coming up to her and saying the whole, “I’m so happy you’re here. I haven’t seen you in so long.” She was very blunt with us about how she felt so we were very blunt with her.
We went on trade offs this week with all the Young Women in our Ward. I always feel weird when me and my companion split up hahaha…It feels like it is wrong. We went and visited some less active young women and invited them to an activity the next day. I went with Sister S—– and two younger young women.
We were going to see one of our investigators who has been to young women quite a bit and we were talking in the car about what we should share with her and the new young woman (it was her first young woman activity) said, “We should definitely talk to her about not wearing low cut shirts and not having sex before you are married.” hahaha Sister S—– and I just looked at each other. The young women are so special here…hahaha
I shall strive to make a facebook post about the “Saratov Approach” Movie and let all the Floridians know about it. The name of the man in our Calgary West Stake that was involved as a missionary there name is Brother Derek Wride, right? There is a link to the official trailer on youtube as well, right?
We have extended two more baptismal invites this week! G.B. doesn’t have a baptism date yet. A.R. is being baptized on March 28th. T.L. is being is baptized on March 3rd, but we haven’t met with her lately. The T. Family has been away to Alabama and is less active. B.G. has just been baptized. The R. Family has dropped visiting with us sadly. J. is progressing amazingly!!! She is keeping all her commitments and is reading like a BOSS!!! We have not set a date with her yet. We meet next on Wednesday. A.R. was visited by the young women on trade offs. We talked with her about baptism but her mom says she has to wait until she is 18 to be baptized. J.M. I went to see on trade offs with the young women, I.G. is a member and her mom too. J.M. is progressing much lately and the A—— family wasn’t a church this last Sunday. They are the members we are working with.
I am still getting used to the iPads, learning to love them and stop using the planner. I am having troubles letting go. I love paper. Jackeileen it is sad you can’t figure out what happened to your foot. That is sad you cannot wear heels. Me and you both! I will be praying for your foot and the family too.
“RUN FORREST RUN!!” haha That is what you and brother kept saying when I had a gimp leg. Good memories!! I love, love, love you. Take care and keep warm in the freezing weather. Sister Winkler
