First I just wanted to say how grateful I am for such an amazing family and that I love you all soo much! My love for all of you has grown so much! Being out on the mission you see lots of sad and hard family situations. I appreciate all of you so much more and so grateful that we were raised by such great parents who taught us the gospel.
This week has been great! Still having ups and downs. Tuesday the Relief Society has quilting and President let us go for an hour. We met 2 non members and have an appointment with one of them this week, which is awesome! Bishop Greth has had this tradition to take the Elders to 'Taco Tuesday' so we did that with his wife and Sister Shultz. Wednesday was a harder day for me and Sister Barton. We were both kinda low and we had a good talk. We got out of the car and tracted by the church. The Lord showed his tender mercy and we found 2 new investigators. The one is a single mom and has a son and the other is a family but the family cancelled yesterday. The rest of the week was good! We have ate a members home for dinner every night! We had Zone Training meeting, which got all of us pumped! It is so nice to see and talk to other missionaries. We had a good meeting and made some great goals. For the month of March, our zone made a goal to have each companionship to have 1 baptism. Pray for us! On Sunday it was the Missionary Show! Me and Sister Barton talked in sacrament! It went really well. I talked about becoming child like. We both didn't have much time to prepare so we had to rely on the spirit to help us. Church and Sundays are wonderful! I love them so much! Such a great refresher.
Today for p day, some of the moms in our ward took us on this little hike with all their cute kids and a few of their nonmember friends! So that was good we got to talk with them and hopefully will be seeing them soon. We were right by the ocean and the hike led up to the light house! It was foggy but still pretty. We also saw a whale! I will have to send some pics of the hike and other pictures I have taken!
Well sounds like all of you are doing great! I love to hear what's going on! People here love that new Bible Show, it sounds good. Saren's shower sounded so fun!! Can't wait to hear how the wedding goes! That's fun Ashlee and Reese stayed and I'm glad to hear Shae and Bryce are home safe!
Like I told you last week, our goal is to baptize 3 souls! So pray for us! I have a feeling this week is going to be great! Me and Sister Barton are ready to work extra hard this week. I am getting the hang of things but still have lots to learn. We have Zone Conference this week which will be awesome! Excited for that and the Stake Relief Society is doing this Women at the Well thing on saturday! Our Zone is also doing this 40 day fast! I will tell you more about it later! I just gotta trust in the Lord. Just taking step by step. I hope you have been praying for missionary opportunities. If you haven't start this week. Well again I love you all!!
