God Answers Prayers

This week was literally so good and such a faith building experience. First of all the heat was killer. It was like 90 degrees all week... On bikes it was way fun! Haha but seriously God has answered my prayers so many times this week. I was like DANG, I don't know what I would do without praying. This week has truly been a "magical march":
-we got 19 member present lessons this week!
-we had 4 investigators at church!
-we have 2 people on date to be baptized in April! J*, who we have been working with for a long time is getting baptized on the 12th! She is seriously like my best friend, we get a long so well and I feel a deep connection with her. We have been working through some problems and this week and they were all resolved through prayer and fasting! Yesterday we fasted that she would pray and get her answer. And when we talked to her she said that in the middle of the night she got up and said the longest prayer she has ever said and cried because the Holy Ghost told her that if she wants to be happy then she needs to live this way. It was such an amazing experience and answer to both of our prayers because we have been working SO hard with her. We asked her to pray and ask God if he wants her to be baptized on the 12th and she did and the Holy Ghost told her she is ready!! She has literally changed countenance. When we met her she was very reserved, angry, and didn't talk at all. Now she is happy, talks more, and wants to do good. It is a miracle. The 2nd person, P*-who lives in the recent convert family's home, is going to get baptized on the 19th of April. Apparently his brother who lives in Mesa has been working with him for 23 years and now finally he is ready to make this change in his life! It's so exciting! He is trying to quit smoking, but the cool thing is every time we teach him we ask him to pray about Joseph smith or whatever we taught and he says, "oh I don't need to pray, I already know". It's amazing how prepared the people are when they are friends or family of members!
-we are also working with a recent convert, A*, and her brother M*. He works on Sundays right now so he can't come to church. So we had a lesson at the church on Monday and he said he really liked the feeling of the Mormon church. And on the way home he was like "so this happy feeling I have is the Holy Ghost? And you guys feel that way everyday?" Haha it was sweet. It made me realize how sweet the Holy Ghost is and how we take it for granted sometimes.
-this week has been super crazy as well. Tuesday we went on splits for the first time with 2 members! It was weird at first, but really cool. Then on Wednesday we had our neighbors, the sister training leaders, move in with us! So now there is 4 sisters in our apartment! It's a lot of fun actually! Hermana M* and I get along really well because we both love sports. Sister F* crashed her bike again... Sad day. But this time it wasn't as bad. Her bike was broken so I rode one of the Elder's bikes, it was super weird! Then I actually got a flat tire on his bike haha it was funny. And lastly, the General Women's Conference was bomb! Seriously, I felt the spirit so strong.

This week has just been wonderful and now I have 1 week left till transfers, we find out on Sunday if we get transferred! Last week of training-here I come! Happy Conference Week!
I love you all!

"We had a young woman, K* come out with us on our bikes! She rode her cute little bike and wore her mom's name tag. It was so sweet!"

"And then Hermana M* was going through my closet and mix-matching clothes... haha she's hilarious."
