The area here is wonderful the members are so nice and talk slow so i am able to talk to them. The investigators we have are good they ask really good questions. We have this one investigator right now her name is sonia and we brought her to church on sunday she was so cool she was participating in the lesson in sunday school and asks so many questions we gave her a pamphlet for the plan of salvation and she loved it she told us to give one to two of her neighbors! it was so cool to see her get excited about it i wish i could think of a better word than cool right now. I wanted to thank you for having soeur banks be my trainer she is amazing and just trying to help me out everyday. She gives me awesome ways to be apart of the lesson so i dont feel useless like sharing the first vision having me bare testimony, something i love that she does is we choose a scripture before the lesson we want to use and she will have me introduce the verse then we read it and then we ask a question about it. it is really nice. This week we were riding down the street on our bikes and we had a little bit of time before our next lesson because someone wasnt home and i was just following soeur banks and she had stopped and this family on the side was pealing beans, she asked if we could help. that family did not hesitate to give us the bowl of beans and while we were helping them with there beans we had shared the restoration lesson with them, it was such a cool experience after that the man we were talking to wanted to hear more so we set another time to meet with him. that honestly just showed me how important it is to talk with everyone and just to serve and to always just ask if they need help with anything. I hope you have a good week! this was just some of the email i was writting to my mission president but i wanted to share it with you but honestly it was such a cool experience and i had felt the spirit so strong during that time and it was weird cuz there was music blasting and kids running around but you could just feel that the spirit was there. i also in that lesson i didnt know what was going on to be honest but i felt a question pop into my head at first i was like alright you dont know whats going on is this question even relevant but my heart like felt hotter and hotter the longer i sat there and i knew i would regret not asking the question so i did and the guy i guess said that was exactly what i was thinking i dont know and we had the opportunity to explain it to him. It was honestly such an amazing feeling and such an amazing experience!! i love you thanks so much for al the stories love you!!!
