It's been in another great week in the Santa Clara Heights Stake!
Here are some updates!
Andrew continues to progress towards his March 7th baptism date. Mikayla has been kind of out of the loop but the Young Women and Relief Society are working to get her back on track. Andrew is so awesome though! Every time we come over to teach him he plays a song for us on the piano. It's amazing especially since he's 20 but has the mentality of a 12-14 year old. Truly inspiring. We are excited for that whole family.
We visited the Maycocks this week twice! super big. It's har dbecause they're pops works a lot and it's a house full of teenage girls so we can never go in.But we taught them and the dad was more receptive and said he needed to come back to church. Music to a missionary's ears of course. They're such a neat family - just been through so much :( hope things start to look up for them.
Jeven is doing super well. He had the problem of not remembering any of the lessons but we switched up the way we taught and he has remembered the last 2 perfectly. Of course, offering his favorite chocolate as a reward helps in keeping his attention ;) haha We hope to give him a baptismal date as well. We are trying to work on his mum too. She's opened up a lot since we've been teaching. and we were able to reactivate his older sister. Need to get them on the way to the temple.
Cheyenne is on fire! She's been reading and praying and going to church. She accepted to be baptized on the 14th of March. We went to the visitor's center last night to watch Meet the Mormons and God's plan for families. It was awesome! We are also working on her parents. They have taken lessons before but the missionaries were overbearing and it kinda turned em off to the whole thing. Fingers crossed and prayers in our hearts.
So other news!! Remember the Chestnut family back in Richfield?? Well Gage was baptized and Sister Chestnut has accepted to be baptized the 15th and Brother Chestnut will hopefully baptize her!! Wow! There's a song in my heart. I love their family. Some of the most spiritual moments of my mission have been there.
The gospel brings change - good change. We need not be afraid of it. We strive to follow Christ. We show our love to Him by being obedient to His commandments. If we haven't been He has prepared the path of repentance so we may if we choose. That is - if we choose. What choices will you make today?? I love you - each of you.
Our Savior love you - each of you. May your day be filled with His light and His love.
