These past couple of days has been crazy for us! Long story short, There is a huge fire in my area last night, almost burned down the entire mountain and the Elder's Apts. We got evacuated and spent the night with the Sisters a couple towns over. (Also why I am emailing early) It was pretty intense. You could see the flames from miles away and the entire mountain is burnt to a crisp. It burned down a lot of houses, including the Bishop in the Prosser Ward's house. Then in the city on the other side of us, SunnySide, there was another fire on that mountain! The entire valley we were in was filled with smoke and we couldn't see very well! So like the Spirit of God like a fire is burning.....the entire state of Washington.
But other than the fire, This week was pretty good! We started teaching this 16 year old JWs. His name is Jario and he has the sweetest spirit ever. He really just wants to understand and it's hard for him because everything we are teaching him goes ageist what he has learned his whole life.
We have also started teaching Hortencia. We found her last Sunday and she's super wonderful! She's been looking for a long time for the right church. We left her with a Book of Mormon and she said she would read it. We stopped by yesterday and she is super sick so we'll be catching up with her in a bit.
We also taught Rosalinda's family the Plan of Salvation. Rosalinda is on date for the 3rd of September. Will and Nancy are a bit harder to catch. Danny and Jonathon are super cute too. We read out of the picture book with them. Hopefully we can get the entire family on date pretty soon.
I've been studying Chapter Six of Preach My Gospel a lot this week. Isn't Christ like the best? I think it's so cool how you can't have Hope with out Faith. And you can't have Charity without Hope and Faith, and Vice Versa. Basically, Faith is pretty wonderful and everyone needs more of it. I feel that as I study that chapter, I am learning more and more about our Savior. He really is our best friend! I'm so grateful for him and all that he did.
Love you all so much. Have a fantastic week!
