Leugim (Emailed 3/16/2015)

Hi!  How is everyone doing?

I'm doing good.  It has been a pretty good week.  So last Sunday, my first Sunday in the ward, they changed the Bishop out.  So this week the ward was adjusting to a new bishopric and everything.  It was good though.  The ward is really great.  This is probably the strongest ward I've been in.  I also think it's one of the smallest.  We have about 60 people that go on Sundays.  Almost all of them are returned missionaries. It's pretty great!  They're willing to help us with anything!  The only hard part is finding people to teach :) 

The good news is that we've been working with Faviola, and she's super excited to get baptized this Saturday!  This is a miracle.  This is the first baptism that this area has ever had.  It's been almost a year since the first sisters came to open a second area in this ward, and we have the opportunity to be the first sisters to baptize here!  Faviola is super excited and we are too!

This week, we also contacted someone really crazy in the street.  He told us that he learned to speak English in the street and that his name is Leugim (that would be miguel backwards).  His chihuahua is named Holly.  He told us that he just happens to be a Chinese god and he comes from Mercury.  He was wearing 2 different earrings and was really happy to talk to us in the street, twice.  We're excited to go teach him this week.  He would be such a great member!!

Anyways, I just want to finish talking about the Book of Mormón.  I hope you are all reading it!  Together as a family, and individually.  It is so powerful.  I think about how perfect it is and how perfect the Plan of God is to bring forth this light in the perfect time, and it's incredible.  It really brings us so much closer to God and Jesucristo.  We can learn so much from this book, and we keep learning more and more as we read it.  It is such a powerful testimony builder, and it protects us throughout the day when we read it.  The most important part though, is that we read it consistently.  When we do the things God commands us faithfully and consistently, our lives change and our families are strengthened continually.  I want to invite you all to read the Book of Mormón every day.  Try to finish it before I get home!!

Love you all!!!
