It's still been slow here with finals and everything coming up. This week is finals so next week things will go back to normal. A lot of people are going home for the summer which we're really sad about. But we'll get a lot of new investigators and people to work with as well this summer. So ya lots of new changes.
I have a couple highlights from my week that i'll share. On Saturday we usually have correlation with our branch mission leader. This week he and his wife invited us over to their house for correlation and they made us breakfast. They made German pancakes which are they best, with hash browns and fruit! It was super good! They have a cute little apartment and we love spending time with them so that was fun. Then that night we went out to dinner because it was one of the Elders in our area's birthday. We decided to go to Chilies but it was packed so we ended up just going to Denny's which was super good and fun. There were a bunch of us there and we always love doing things with everyone.
Yesterday was fast Sunday which was super great! We had a break the fast afterwards and it was yummy. We had sloppy joes, salad, chips, fruit, dessert. We had tons of food and were so stuffed by the end of it! We had a lot of people show up to church that day because of break the fast which is pretty normal. What college students don't like free food? Haha! Then that night we watched the CES Devotional. Elder Lynn G. Robbins (presidency of the 70) spoke. He's so awesome! He talked about our faith and testimonies and used Alma 32 to show us that most of us probably have a stronger testimony and knowledge of the gospel than we think we do. I set the goal to be more diligent in my studies and to always find joy within it. If you didn't get the chance to watch it, you should cause it was that good haha. It should be on lds.org.
My favorite highlight though was yesterday at church. Sister Jones and I decided to buy Loveday (our recent convert) a quad (set of scriptures that contains the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price) with her name on it so she could have a set of her own scriptures. We gave them to her yesterday and she was SO happy! She was taking pictures of them and looking through them and her face was just so excited and happy! Man I love her so much! She's so cool! She just got called as the Chinese Gospel Principles teacher for the branch so we're helping her out with that. It's cool to still see her testimony continually growing!
So ya it's been a good week overall. Hopefully everyone's week goes well and you have a good Mother's day with your Mom.
Love you all!!!!
