Finding Members

Hey all!

Well this week went well. We really needed to find more investigators, because we don't have much. We decided to clean up a bit the ward member list. A lot of people don't live in our ward anymore, but haven't transferred their records, so we have like 1200 names haha. Well, only about 160, so we figured we would go around and knock on doors to find out who still lives where. We were looking for someone, and this girl answered the door and immediately as I saw her face, I felt something special. She let us in and she immediately told us her name, that she's not a member, and that she wants to get baptized. SURPRISE. She is living with the less active, but she said that they are gonna get married. FINGERS CROSSED. She said she was looking and looking and everyone told her to just ask God. So she did, and that night she said she dreamed the temple. ANSWER. So she woke up with this huge desire to be baptized and go to church. Wow, what a blessing it was to find her. The problem is that her whole family is Evangelico (I have no idea what that is in English...) and she's afraid of how her dad is going to react. So that's the tricky part! But so cool to find her!

So this week since Friday, we haven't had water in our house. Apparently the bill wasn't paid. It's been an adventure with having to shower in the Hermana's house in the other sector every morning, and planning perfectly to go to the bathroom in houses hahahaha. But we talked with Elder Adams and asked why....well, he's got it all fixed so we should have water tonight. WOOO. (Ps...Elder Adams went to Desert Hills, and his brother is a senior. Don't know his name hahah, but yeah, maybe Sarah knows him!) Fun fact.

So we helped a sister with stuff for her baby shower. Here they really go out with their baby showers. Maybe I didn't realize it before, and it's the same in the States, but I don't think so. I mean ALL OUT. It's nuts how much they do and make for a baby shower! But it was fun :)

We watched the CES Broadcast, and it was pretty cool if I do say so myself. I liked it a lot. Did you guys watch it?

Well, I love you all!!!! Tell me what's up :)
