Look who came and took us to lunch! The Larsen's from Hearne and Caldwell!
Oh and this is the new senior couple in our area! The WILDINGS! They are SO AWESOME AND CUTE!
Literally one of the most eventful weeks of my LIFE! I loveeee the mission life. :)
So the week was busy and we were able to receive about 7 REFERRALS from the members! They are crazy about missionary work and really want us to teach their friends! It's so awesome! :)
On Saturday, it was KRISTY AND JACOB HERNANDEZ's BAPTISM in Waller! It was so great seeing them and seeing them take this wonderful step in their life! It so much fun going back to Waller and seeing all of my favorite people! :) but let me tell you ... it was one stressful day! Haha We didn't have keys to the church so we had to get them from the Elders ... hence the pic with Elder Atkinson! We were literally matching with our boots, pinkish outfits and red hair. Then, we were going to sing a song for the baptism but our pianist didn't know how to play the song ... so we sang "Come Follow Me." It was the first time Sis. Breinholt and I sang it together! Haha so crazy. We had a great time at the baptism and Kristy invited a lot of her non-member family. We briefly taught the Restoration to them and bore testimony of the truthfulness of this Gospel! We didn't get home until after 10:00 since we had to drive all the way back to our area ... haha but this is why I am here! To be a tool for the Lord to use to help guide His children back to Him!
Okay so that was Saturday. On Sunday we went to the Crocket Branch! So cute! About 40 people came and it was so fun! We had dinner with the Deans, who then invited us to go to a multi-faith gathering at the COWBOY church. Y'all have no idea how bad I've wanted to go to one of their services, and last night people from all over the community went. But one small problem ... we accidentally locked our keys in our car! Whooooops. We had to call a tow truck and we felt so bad since it was the Sabbath! But it was cool because we gave the tow truck driver a card and invited him to come to church and learn, and he was totally interested! Maybe it was all meant to be! :)
This week has been crazy and tomorrow we are finally getting a truck! We go on at least 2 dirt roads a day visiting people and we are destroying our nice, cute 2015 Corolla ... but country life is so great and I'm excited to see the miracles happening in the next couple of weeks! :)
Here are some pics from the week!
Love y'all and have a great day!
