I saw the video of Kiegan, and she is adorable haha!!! I'm so grateful to have such great family members and a really adorable niece and nephew :) I hope that Hema's interview went well, I'm sure dad loved having Hendrix there. And I also hope dad starts to feel better :/ You too mom! Get better! Don't worry, I'm all good out here :)
Elder Redmond and I get along just great! We have the same mentality when it comes to a lot of things, so it's awesome.

God has blessed us alot and I know He will continue to bless us if we can stay obedient and dilligent. So here is what happened so far this week:
|PC'ing on campus|
Then we proceeded to go to a lesson with G who is an investigator on date. While we were waiting we tried to call G but it went straight to voicemail. We were getting nervous because we were thinking, "What if she stood us up and was just being nice to meet with us?" Then we received a prompting to go to the bottom floor where we had met her the very first time. And POP! There she was. She told us her phone had died and she just had the feeling to go to where we all first met! We had another lesson with her about the Book of Mormon and how it can truly bring her closer to God and Jesus Christ. She accepted the Book of Mormon and said she would start reading it :) After that lesson, the other lesson we had planned fell through. But we had to go to a meeting anyways so that ended up being a little grace from God. The meeting was to plan for upcoming MLC and Zone Conferences. So it was overall a great day!
After all that work we went to our area and PC'd for a couple hours. We found some potentials but not any new solid investigators yet. After PCing we had a lesson with a LA who has been coming back to church. She is awesome. We just chatted for a bit then we talked about remembering our testimony. She expressed to us that when she was converted her family members were all against it. Sometimes it's hard to do what's right when everything else is pushing against us, again a reminder of Satan and his opposition. We asked her about her testimony and how she came to know that the Book of Mormon is true. She told us that when she prayed about it, it just felt right, almost like a warm feeling. We told her that's exactly how it should feel, and we encouraged her to let that feeling always be her guide because that feeling comes from God and the Holy Ghost. It's a lesson for all of us that as you reflect on and remember your testimony, you will always feel good, and you will always be able to resist Satan. After the lesson with her we decided to swing by H because she got into a car accident last week. We stopped by and she seemed to be doing great. However as we asked her about the Book of Mormon she told us that she won't read it. Then she said she was wondering why we were always coming by to check on her. She told us flat out she won't ever convert and she expressed to us that it would be better for us to do our job with someone more receptive than she. It was really sad but we simply smiled and replied, "Well, our job is to be your friend." It's true. After all is said and done, our job is to be like Christ. It doesn't matter if others believe or not. Our job is to care for and minister to everyone, believer or unbeliever. So now we are just going to continue to do our best. We will just keep helping her and keep doing what Christ would do.
MLC always leaves us drained because of all the stuff we do to set up, coordinate, get started and teach. So not a very exciting day for us haha!
Well today we have a lesson with E and we are hoping it goes well! Please pray for us. Thanks for everything you and dad do for us kids. Tell everyone I love them!!
