This week was great!!!!
Tuesday morning we got a call from our friend Crazy Dave. His friend, Joe was in the hospital and wanted us to come visit him. We had a good visit and invited him to pray. On Sunday he ended up coming to church! :) Then, yesterday morning, Joe called us and told us he wants to be baptized!!!! So exciting! We have to pass him off to the proper missionaries for where he lives, but we are very excited for him. :)
This week we taught Barbara lesson 1 and lesson 2. She got a blessing last week to help her with her health. When we stopped by she couldn't stop telling us how amazing she felt after the blessing! When we told her that we have the priesthood authority, she said, "I don't think I was baptized with the right authority." Then we invited her to be baptized and she said YES! She also came to church on Sunday and she loved it. Aaaaand even more, she reads the Book of Mormon! I love her.
On Thursday we got to meet our new mission president and his wife--President and Sister Bartlett. They are awesome people, from Omaha, Nebraska! He gave us two commitments based on the two things he emphasized. 1. Write in journal everyday. 2. Exercise everyday. I love that he stressed these two things on his first day as a mission president. They are both so important for us as missionaries!
Also on Thursday we met with Sameayah and set a baptismal date for July 30th. This is probably her 50th date she's had, because she has met with TONS of missionaries, but we are working hard for her to get it! We will see...... That night we met with the Fluckiger family and made a plan of what needs to be done to make it to the temple. The thought of them going to the temple makes my heart soooo incredibly happy. :)
Independence Day happened to be on our P-day this year!! :D We drove to Idaho City for the celebration! They had a parade that consisted of: Fire trucks, Rangers, a few horses, fire trucks dirt bikes, and fire trucks. hahaha We caught candy and also toilet paper and radishes!!! I was so excited because we had run out of toilet paper and needed some! haha At our dinner appointment, we had lots of fun with fireworks. Then last night we did a few sparklers at home. It was a fun day!!! I love holidays. :)
