|A cool Book of Mormon |
So this week has been a really awesome week!! We've done a lot of good things here in the Buhl area. It definitely is a change from the Rupert Zone. Last week on Monday we had a good Preparation Day of sports. I'm looking forward to today of playing some soccer. Let's hope I'm not too rusty. We visited people that and it was really cool. Did some tracting in the area which can always be interesting. We found some really cool people that hopefully will have some potential. We met this one lady who just returned from the hospital and is frail and week. We talked to her friend and the friend wasn't interested, but told us to come back another day. So we planned on going back Tuesday.

Tuesday we went and visited the lady that is very ill and we had a wonderful conversation with her. We shared one of the Easter Videos with her and it brought her so much peace. She had said, "I like that, I feel different." It was heartwarming to see her glow and just feel the power of Christ. I'm having to brush up on a lot of my English teaching skills since I haven't taught in English in awhile. We then later tried some other people throughout the day just trying to meet them. We didn't have a dinner so I decided last minute, to try someone. We tried and met a guy who was just all over the place. Couldn't really tell if he was drunk, but had a good chat with him. He just wasn't interested though. Maybe one day. We grabbed a quick bite before we had a list of appointments to do. We had a great appointment with these two kids that want to know more about the Gospel and it was amazing!!
Wednesday we had a good grind of working. We met some new people and some people that we could do some service for. We had a few appointments later in the evening as the day went on. One of our appointments was with this really cool family. They live out in the desert of Buhl and we got there just on time for our appointment. We were able to teach the Restoration as a story to get the kids involved and one of the kids is nine and hasn't been baptized because they come from a divorce family. It was sad to see this kids face as she lit up from all this that we were teaching and hearing them say that it was all true. All we could do was pray that maybe one day, the one parent will change their mind and let them be baptized. We overbooked ourselves after that and we went on a quick split for an appointment. Both the appointments I didn't know so I let Elder Livingston tell me which one I should go to. He thought it would be better if I went to the Spanish appointment. He later joined me cause his appointment cancelled. But we had a great lesson and the spirit was definitely there.

Thursday....Planning....It was good, but I won't say my favorite thing in the world. We met a cool Peruvian lady before we taught our English class. We invited her to come and she came! It was pretty cool!!
Friday was fun. We had a meeting and then after that we got to work We met with a Brother in the ward cause the ward told us to go visit him. Don't know why, but we did. We met him and he's awesome!! He's from Campeche, which my mom knows what that means. We talked about Mexico for awhile. It's just cool being able to talk about those places and knowing what they are and where they are with other people who know. After that we worked hard and tried to meet so many new people. Which we did. We went to a party and right as soon as we connected to Wifi, our phones blew up with messages and one of them being a confirmation about an appointment that we didn't know about. So we said "Hi and Bye" and booked it to this appointment. It went really well and this family has potential. The Spirit was definitely pouring out of the dad as he was telling us what he wanted for his kids. It was so neat.

Saturday was a day of service. It was really neat serving some people who weren't expecting it. If there's anything that I love about Elder Livingston, is how much he puts others before himself. It has been really a unique quality that has been just so awe gasping as I have seen him serve. We had some really good lessons and met new people. We then had a great Cinco de Mayo party that we attended and made a quick run to deliver a family some food from the party. It was really neat.
Sunday is always a great day. We went to church like crazy, had meetings, and I ended up translating for one of the wards. Hopefully, I did a good job. We did some service cause a family was being evicted that day and I know how it feels so we jumped in and helped them out. They were really happy and really thankful for what we and the ward members helped out with. It wasn't much, but the appreciated it. We had a good dinner that night and they gave us a lot of names to go and try out. We're hoping we can meet some of
these new people.
