Completing Families!

This week was SO great!
We are still majorly focusing working with the Members. That is what our zone and district is really trying hard with. On Tuesday we were visiting a different ward's achievement days and talked about being a missionary to the little girls. It was sweet. We also had a faith promoting experience when we lost the keys to the car. The biggest miracle of all this whole week was witnessing a family being completed just like President Toone promised us. After 13 years, the Thoreson famliy got married on Friday night by Bishop M*. (the first wedding I've ever been to, it was cool). Then on Saturday the Dad and 2 kids were baptized (the mom is a member). And Sunday they were confirmed and given the Holy Ghost. Seriously at every event the Spirit was stronger and stronger. It was so cool to see this family enter into the waters of baptism and make covenants with Heavenly Father. And now they are working towards the temple! This is what it's all about. Seeing families making those steps to be sealed for time and all eternity. That was truly a blessing witnessing their decisions and feeling the power of it through the spirit.
-J* had a relapse with Alchohol this week so we are really praying for him right now.
-Also saw cockroaches for the first time this week in an investigators home. sooo freaky. haha

On Sunday there were some big changes in the stake. Our ward boundaries got changed. We pretty much doubled in size! it's crazy! ( we actually live in our ward now) haha but I think we gained about 250 members, so now the M* ward is going to be over 1000 members! Hopefully we will get another set of missionaries so we can have 3 sets.

Also this week is transfers and luckily i'm not getting transferred! yay! I am officially not going to be the youngest missionary in our zone anymore! It's so crazy that 1 transfer is already over! time is going so fast! Thank you all for your support! And thanks for the packages MOM and everyone else! I got the treats and all the letters! you guys are the best and I love you all! Have a wonderful week!
