Hello dearest friends and family!

   This week was filled with miracles! Some of the things that happened this week may not be seen as miracles to some but they truly are. 
   We had a dinner with a family and the Spanish Elders were there as well. We decided to throw the lesson at them since we always do it, horrible reason I know. They took a little while to get into it and we had another appointment so we left before  they started. As we were leaving the families non-member friend showed up to pick up her daughter. The Spanish Elders invited her to listen to the message and she loved what they read out of the Book of Mormon. We now have an appointment with her tomorrow in the members home. I think this might be the first lesson I've taught in a members home with someone that was found from the members. I'm pretty excited!
   We also dropped the Theobald's this week. They weren't willing to come to church and as much as we enjoyed helping them with service our purpose is not to do service for people, it's to help them come closer to Christ, and if they aren't willing to make the changes to get there then we have no purpose in being there. They have our number and can call us if hey ever change their minds.
   That's pretty much all that happened that's worth mentioning. Oh! We went to the Elders Quorum presidency meeting and there were tons of assignments made and awesomely they gave themselves the assignments to do stuff. So that was pretty cool.
   I think that's all now. Just one last little rant thingy.
   I feel the need to say something due to things that have been said in the past by me and others that have been bothering me. The Bible is the word of God, it contains much of His teaching and has been given to us to learn more about the life of our Savior Jesus Christ and of how we can become more like him. It is a holy book which can give us direction and comfort. The Book of Mormon is also Gods word, given to us to bring even more truth and light into our lives. As we we use BOTH together we can truly come to understand more of our Father in Heaven and of what we need to do to return to live with Him. I have a strong testimony of the importance of using both books of scripture in teaching for if I had not studied the Bible I would not be able to show others how the two can truly become one in our hands. It is my invitation to each and every one of you to read both the Bible and the Book of Mormon this week. Find ways that they connect and learn all that you can from them both. If you have trouble finding connections let me know and I can help you out. Please heed my invitation as I know that as you do this God will give you answers to questions you may have through both the words you read and through His Holy Spirit.

I love you all and hope you have a great week!
