Week #40 - Service week

Hello Everyone!

What a wonderful week is was. This past week we did a lot of service for the less active members in the ward which was a lot of fun. For one of the members he is fixing up a house he owns and so we help him just move stuff around. We also tried to cut down a palm tree that was in the back yard that was close to the house but we weren't very successful at it. We also helped a member with some yard work and painting which was fun except for the heat which wasn't so nice. There was another member that we helped moved furniture in his house and one of them was a granite table that was so heavy but we moved it. I loved doing service.

An update on who we are currently working with. A lot of the people we are working with are less active members but it's all good cause they know and have friends that aren't members and so we can talk to them. The first one was just baptized 4 weeks ago. He is such an awesome guy and really just loves the gospel. He tells us all the time of how the Lord is helping him in his life. It's so amazing. For his profession, he is an artist. Not with paint but with wood!  He carves things out of wood and it's super cool how he does it. We are hoping to go over there this week cause the past couple weeks cause he has been busy with family stuff. Next one is a tough one, but is progressing in coming back to church. He is a single father and has 3 awesome kids. We are really helping him coming back to church cause then he will be an example for the kids and will help the kids make better choices. There is a guy that we just met last week that we will be working with and his wife; she is not a member but she has questions about the church and seems interested which is super exciting. We are now working with another part member family. When the wife was taking the lessons from the missionaries, her husband was listening with her. She got baptized but he didn't. When we met with them last week we asked him why didn't he take the next step towards baptism. He said he wasn't ready, which not everyone gives that answer. We are very excited about this and can't wait to see him this Wednesday.

I love how God answers prayers. It's amazing that he does listen and he does want to help us all we have to do is ask and he will give us the answer. It might not be as soon as we want it, but it will come. He has answered my prayers and I am so grateful for it because it has helped me learn and come closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

Love y'all!! Make it a great week!
