The best miracle ever this week happened when we tried to get Saul to come to Priesthood session. We tried calling him and everything, but he didn't answer. So, we dejectedly went into the English session. As we sat there, I forgot worrying about it, because it was amazing! The Church leaders aren't being vague or soft anymore; they mean business! Afterwards, Elder Lewis comes running up to us and says; I saw Saul! He came! So we went running to where they showed the spanish, and there he was, grinning like a champ, talking with all these different ward members and being awesome! He absolutely loved it! He'd tried calling us during the conference, but our phone was off. So, he wondered what to do, and finally went in by himself and found the spanish bunch! So then we sat down and taught a ridiculously good Chastity lesson to him with the Bishop (Best Idea ever!) They got along great, and Saul is committed to live it. He's doing great on the word of Wisdom, and all is ready for the 19th-ish of October! We're super excited!
This week has been MAD!!! We weren't able to get out and work a lot for a ton of reasons, and when we would finally have time to get out, our bikes BOTH got massive flats. My tire keeps getting flats for no reason; there's no holes at all! (Weird) and Elder Law's tire died Friday; it looked like he'd run over a porcupine! Then, Sunday Elder Law's legs started hurting like crazy, so we had to come in and ice them. We were not looking very good, until this morning.
We Got a CAR!!! We're back on wheels! So that'll be interesting. We're gonna go crazy on this area the next two weeks.
I barely noticed my birthday, although it's weird being 22! (I'm not sure I'm happy about it!) I was so busy with conference I almost missed it. I loved the package though! That Eclipse CD is the best Spiritual Pick-me-up ever! I hope ya'll have a way to listen to those songs too, they're powerful. Also, Mom, can you take out 2 dollars tithing for the 20 Gma Fuller sent me? Thanks a ton!
I love you all, and I'm very grateful for all you do! I know the things that were said yesterday are true, and they are real! The prophecy that we will not always escape the persecutions our ancestors faced is frightening, but the promise that if we are solid in Christ we cannot fall is stronger. Be strong! Keep studying lots and being Bosses! Love Ya!
