Hey everyone! Finishing the second week of this transfer, finishing April and starting May! We're working hard and we're getting ready to talk to our families on Mother's Day! I'm so excited!

This week, we've found a ton of new investigators, 17 in total. I haven't recieved that many in my entire mission, and I've never seen a number like that. So....it's pretty sweet haha. In this week, we're going to keep teaching them and see which ones are ready to receive the gospel and be baptized! Woo!

We also helped out the members in cleaning the prayer house here, it was in great need of a good sweeping. We all put ourselves to work in sweeping, mopping, and throwing out trash so that our little prayer house looked a lot better, and so that the Spirit can dwell there. The scriptures say that the "Spirit cannot dwell in unholy temples", that applies to uncleaHey everyone! Finishing the second week of this transfer, finishing April and starting May!

This last Sunday, we experienced something abnormal too. After the sacrament meeting, something happened to one of the members. This member, named Brenda, left the room all dazed, looking like she didn't know where she was nor who she was. She sat down, she said she had a big headache. We gave her some pain pills and a glass of water, but she still sat there with a confused gaze. We gave her a blessing, and we decided to leave her there to rest and....recuperate? By the end of church she was back to normal, so everything is all right now. It was very interesting...

So yeah! That was our week, pretty fun. We're going to see what we can do in this week to come, and we'll work our way to a baptism! Woo!

Love!
