When we wen't to do service at the Opp Shopp, she was there! We walked up to Karina and she was super excited to see us! She said that she has been thinking about us a lot. She has a very busy schedule this week but said she was going to stop by the church because it is just across the street.
We have been teaching sweet Sister Gumm the temple prep lessons with Sister Waite and it has been such a cool experience. She is so close to going to the temple. She is doing everything she can to be able to be worthy and ready to go when the time comes. If things keep going the way they are right now, she should be able to go next week!
Lexie is 14 years old and has such a huge desire to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized! She has been taught by missionaries before with her mom. Her mom stopped taking the lessons but Lexie was still really excited to learn, she knows that this is true. She is reading the Book of Mormon each day and her parents said that she can get baptized on her 16th birthday so she really knows and understands what she is doing. So we put her on date to be baptized on. That will be such a special day considering she will have worked hard and waited for that special date.
We went to have dinner at a members house this week and we drive up and see the house has a pink door. cute :) Then, when we go inside we see that everything is pink. They even have a big family portrait on the wall, and the mom, dad, and two sons all dressed in pink. The ceiling is pink, the couches and all the furniture is pink, chandeliers are pink (yes chandeliers in every room). Pretty much it was the greatest thing ever haha :)
Sister Deel has someone who she has talked to a couple of times who is a Native American. She knows all about the Nephites and Lamanites but, doesn't know anything about the church or the Book of Mormon. How cool is that? The Book of Mormon is literally the history of her people! She is going to LOVE the Book of Mormon.
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEK
