Hi Everyoneeeee! Happy P-Day! Hope y'all had such a great week. It absolutely flewww by this week. We don't even know where it went. Glad to hear school ended well and that's over with for a while. Enjoy the summer vay-cay! Ok lets see what happened this week.
We had Zone Conference this last week. It was amazing! We had it at the Badger Building, where the mission office is. It was good to travel home again (Santa Rosa!) A lot of what they taught is what was given at the last MLC in April, which was definitely a treat to get to hear it twice. Sister Wright taught on using music in our teaching, which is something we've been trying to implement more in our lessons. We now plan a hymn and sing one in every lesson we have. I can definitely tell it brings a very special spirit like nothing else can. She emphasized that even if we aren't musically talented or necessarily have the best voice, that it doesn't matter. As long as we have the spirit with us and have the best of intentions, angels will back us up! We need to start using hymns more in our church activities, meetings, and also just in our daily lives.
Saturday, we had MLC in Santa Rosa also. It was DA BEST! We are focusing a lot on creating a mission vision, because as we know "where there is no vision, the people perish." We've got a good thing established that I'll send on to y'all soon! I love being able to work with President and Sister Wright. They really are the best and are suppose to be in this mission at this time. I totally wish y'all can meet them one day!
We've been meeting more with Israel lately. He even fed us on Saturday. We feel we're really close to opening him up and getting him there. We're just praying to figure out what his concerns our so we can make that next push. We weren't able to meet with Adalberta again this week. She cares for an elderly woman at night as part of her job, and her health hasn't been too hot so Adalberta is with her more helping out.
Welp, somehow this is week 6! I dunno how that happened but I guess it's here. Can't wait for a super week! Love y'all!
