5/7 Mothers Day

Well, this will probably be a short letter because, after all, we'll talk tomorrow. It was a long week! But then again, transfer week is always like that for us. It was even busier because we had to do a training for the sister leaders in the middle of the week, which basically meant that we had a total of about 5 hours to work in our area this week. It can be frustrating sometimes, but I figure that the work that we do is still work, and that if we didnt do it, someone else would have to anyways. 

We have been working on contacting a lot more recently, and we have had some good experiences. We contacted this family in the street a few days ago and they look fairly promising. We only talked to them for a few minutes, but they invited us to their house on Tuesday to meet with the whole family so we'll see how things go. I really like the guy's beard too so I hope things go well :) 

Peggy is doing well! We taught her again on Wednesday and she said she had read and after reading she felt so good and realized that we really do base all of our belief in Jesus Christ. She told us she wants to be baptized but she feels like it would be wrong to do it without her ver Catholic husband. Then a little miracle happened and her husband came home from work and sat down and started listening to the part of the lesson right when got to Joseph Smith. The Spirit was super strong as we talked about the First Vision and Book of Mormon and we were able to answer a lot of questions and misconceptions he had about the Church. He told us he liked listening to us and he accpeted a copy of the Book of Mormon and said he would read it and pray about it, and that he would try to come to church with Gina and Peggy. We still feel like he is more of a "long-term project" but still, it was a little tender mercy. We are going to teach Peggy again tonight, and we are planning to place a baptismal date with her. We'll let you know tomorrow how everything goes! 

Next week will be a doosy also. New missionaries coming, training the trainers, leadership conference, and I think we are going to start the zone conferences next week (I think?). This is also President Zobrist's last transfer here, which means I am down to 2 left.... where did the time go? 

Love you all, have a happy Mother's Day!
