Thank you so much for the package! I’m very grateful for a box from home. My companion had a birthday party for me this morning. She woke up in the middle of the night just to decorate! I also got packages from Grandma Tom and Floyd. Sister Nelson’s mom also sent me some stuff. In grandma Tom’s package she sent some of her homemade cookies. I almost cried! It’s been a fantastic morning and we are planning on climbing up part of Mount Baker. I think it’s the tallest mountain here or something. There’s a glacier at the top and it’s always covered in snow.
This past week has been super real. We talked to our investigator Sharon, who’s husband is a less active member. She hasn’t been keeping commitments so we might have to drop her. We testified to her the real help and blessings you receive from living the gospel. We also talked to Perry, her husband, and told him that he knows what he needs to do. They are really struggling financially and with their health. I know that if they would pay their tithing that they would be blessed.
We also visited Allison. She lives with her less active aunt and cousins. She has been struggling getting into a school because of certain qualifications, but she finally got in. We taught her about tithing and about following the prophet. She has been receiving everything with an open heart and mind and she is excited to get baptized. She is struggling with depression right now. There’s a lot of contention at her aunt’s home. I wish I could take her home with us!
And of course, we visited with the McGirrs. They are so amazing! We had a sort of meeting/ pre-birthday party thing. We have a talk that we want to give the Ward Members participating in the 40 day fast. Sister McGirr even had some black discs that we could use that she had bought that day without knowing what she was going to do with them. And they have a fat cat named Simba and I found his catnip. We had a lot of fun watching him go crazy! We are pretty good buddies now.😸
We had a member show up the other day who dropped of three bags of groceries! We are set for life!!
Thank you for all your prayers!
