Another week here in Sandy Utah!
We did some service for our elderly landlord, she turned 86 this past Thursday. We cleaned out her laundry room. Our new fridge was installed and works great! No more crazy fridge noises at night. Thank goodness!
We got a call from a member the other night asking if we knew what happened to Brother Bitner. He's one of our cute elderly neighbors. Back in November we racked leaves from his yard. Anyways, he had fallen and now is in a coma. Please keep him in your prayers; he's such a sweet old man.
Mallory and Michelle still are on date for baptism. We met with Mallory last night and we talked about ways we can obtain faith. Look up Mosiah 4:6-12. Her fellowship family, the Alstons, are great people! We were teaching a young girl, Alexis, but she's moving on Friday so we're hoping that we can get in contact with the missionaries in that area to make sure they can take over the lessons.
We also had a lesson with a less active member, Spencer. His wife is Laura, I mentioned her a few weeks ago, she's from Mexico. Anyways, last Sunday we had a lesson with their family and Spencer had a lot of questions that we couldn't answer about Joseph Smith. We encouraged him to pray and to read the Joseph Smith history. So last night we met with him in his parents home and Wow! his whole demeanor had changed! It was truly a miracle. He was really open and willing to read more. His parents are wonderful members and really helped in our teaching.
Sister Paredes and I are looking forward to another week of sharing the gospel. I love my Savior and I'm so thankful for all the wonderful blessing I have in my life!
p.s the pictures I've included are posters of an Elder's homecoming. I thought it was a cute idea!
