Mother's Day Wrap-up

Well, after talking to you all yesterday, I'm not sure how much there is to tell you, so I'll just say the fun stuff that happened this week, and if any of it is repetitive I apologize in advance.

We spent a lot of the time walking around this week, but thankfully it was relatively cool temperatures all week long. So that was really good.

Like I said in the phone call yesterday, we had a really cool experience this last week with one of our investigators. We have been teaching her for a few weeks, and the Sister missionaries had been teaching her for a few months before I had gotten into the area. And she said to us this week that she wanted to get baptized in the early part of July! It was really awesome to see her make this decision. And I look forward to working more with her and getting her ready to make this covenant.

Another cool experience we had this week involved someone that we had talked to a couple weeks ago. He stopped us on Wednesday and asked if the offer of service we had offered the first time we talked to him still applied, so we said yes, and we got to help him move some of his stuff between some storage units this last week. It was really good to help him out, and I hope that someday it will help him and his family come to the Gospel, whether or not I am around to see this happen.

Got to go on exchanges over Mother's Day with Elder Skenandore, so that was a really good experience. It was pretty funny to think that the exchange that we went on was almost the same amount of time that we served around each other before.

To end today, I just want to share one of my favorite "Mother's Day" scriptures as a kind of wrap-up for the day where we honor our Mother's more than any other day. Alma 56:47-48, "Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them. And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it." I'm not sure if there is anything I need to say beyond what the stripling warriors have said. I do not doubt that my mother knows it, and I know that it is because of her that I am where I am today.

Talk to you again next week!
