8/11/14 Week 22

Last week and this week are serious GO TIME!  Hermana Black only has this week left, and we want to see some baptisms!! We had 7 pretty solid dates for the 16th of August, but then we had to move the 3 sisters because Instagram and boys are more important than church right now....but I remember being in that boat not too long ago, so I still have high hopes for them!  There are 2 kids with less active parents that are for sure getting baptized this Saturday.  Oh btw mom, Jenny won't stop bugging us about getting her a cat, so I told her maybe you could help her out with that.   Hint hint...I'm still holding out hope that ours will be in the "PURRestrail Kingdom" by the time I get home. (Major LOL) 

Anyways, organizing a baptism is super stressful!  We have to get all the talks, reserve the building, make programs, make sure they have clothes, get them interviewed, etc…I sleep REALLY good at night!   Other than that we still have the Martinez them soooo much!  They came to all 3 hours of church and are loving it.  But alas...they still don't want to get baptized without their padre, and he is still not ready.  But their day will come! Keep prayers coming.

Love 'em - most awesome family ever
Sunday was the most awesome day ever at church!  The Martinez came for all 3 hours and we had a GOLDEN investigator family come and love it!  We've only taught the mom twice, and apparently she and her boyfriend want to get married, but they want to find a church together first.  Talk about perfect!  "Well did you know in our church you can be married for time and all eternity?"  Then even more perfect was the topic in priesthood and relief society; it was on eternal marriage.  They said they loved it and are for sure coming back next week!   
FINALLY found self serve yogurt.  Go TCU!

Also a less active family that we've been working with ever since I got here came to church for the first time in a year!  They are one of my favorite families ever! My heart literally almost jumped out of my throat when I nearly ran over Hna Hernandez on their way in!  It was probably one of the best days at church so far on my mission.  This ward really is starting to feel like home:)

 As always - the church is true!  I look back on how we met some of our most golden people, and it never is a coincidence!  The Lord has prepared so many of these people, and then leads us to them.  And it is awesome to see what can happen when you act on a prompting, no matter how silly or unimportant it might seem at the time.  I love how this gospel is a gospel of miracles, both big and small.

Love Hna bonny
