June 11, 2012

So first off, yesterday was baptism day!  We had the baptism of Sammie, a nine year old, and Yeny, an eight year old (the missionaries have been working to reactivate her family for a while, so she's almost like one of our baptisms,)  and the elders in our branch also had a baptism.  They just did the service right after church, so there were a lot of members there. It was a really neat experience.
Other than Sammie, we haven't been teaching too many people.  We have one investigator, Vidal.  He is the brother of a less active member, and is friend's with Yeny's mom.  So she invited him to come over to her house one night while we were there and we started teaching him.  We just taught him the plan of salvation last week.  I think we are just going to read with him in the Book of Mormon next time.  We've been trying to find new investigators, so we've been calling and stopping by all of the people in our planners.  We had a few lessons on Saturday, but it is really hard to get a hold of some of these people down here.  Hispanics just work and work and work.  I don't get their lifestyle.  So, it's hard to find times when they are willing to listen to us.  But we have the faith that we will find some!  We are doing a lot of finding.  We eat with members about twice a week, and are always looking for more people to share the gospel with.  
Tonight we are going to do a FHE with a part-member family.  We are going to teach them about Lehi's dream.  
We had sister's conference this week.  I got to accompany Hna. Harper again!  I love being able to play for everyone!  Plus, I always play the hymns in all the meetings I go to.  Lots of piano time!  Lots of the sisters gave talks, and Pres. and Sis. Saylin both spoke to us.  We had a question and answer session with president, and then we went over to the mission home for dinner and testimony meeting!  It was a really good meeting, and it was great to hear messages directed to us as sisters, and as sister missionaries.  
Sounds like lots of good wedding stuff is going on!  I bet it's going to get pretty crazy really soon!
Today we are going to have district activity.  We are going to go to a members home and go fishing, and have a pic-nic, and maybe play some volleyball and/or frisbee!  We are pretty stoked!
I'm so happy for Sarah!  That is way exciting! 
Well, I sent some pictures, so I hope everyone enjoys them.
Love you lots!
