This week was great! :) There were lots of highlights so hopefully I can get them all in here and say everything I want to say about them :)
Monday: Nothing super exciting happened :) It was just a normal P-day :)
Tuesday: We had Zone Meeting and it was great! It was all on Family History and how to help investigators, members, and less-active members get into doing family history :) I learned so much about how to use Family History better and how to apply it in my own life. One thing that was super cool was at the end of the meeting, the Zone Leaders had us write down our own individual plans on how to further the Work of Salvation once we get home. We could write down anything from keeping a journal to doing temple work for our ancestors. It was super cool to decide what I could do to further the work even though I won't be a missionary. I also got your package Mom, and I LOVED the shirt! :) Thanks so much! :)
Wednesday: We were able to have an awesome lesson with our investigator, Kristen. Kristen has been meeting with missionaries for a really long time and hasn't gotten baptized yet. We had a mini testimony meeting and really got a feel for what is holding her back and what we can do to help her understand the importance of being baptized. I can't wait to see what is going to happen with her :)
Thursday: Nothing to report here except we were able to do some service for a non-member who is friends with our ward mission leader's family. Super fun! Oh and I also finished Jesus the Christ! It was such a good book and I can't wait to read it again!
Friday: We had interviews with President Eaton and it was great! I learned a lot from him in a very short amount of time. He also told Sister Swapp that one of us is getting transferred in just about 2 weeks. It will be interesting to see what happens at transfers.
Saturday: Best day of the week! Courtney was baptized! It was such an amazing day! Courtney's husband was able to baptize her and her In-Laws came up from Logan to be there for them. It was super cute because Brooke (6) and Everleigh (3), Courtney's two cute girls, sang "Follow the Prophet" as the special musical number. The Spirit was super strong and I am so glad that Heavenly Father allowed Sister Swapp and I to teach Courtney and prepare her for baptism.
Sunday: Courtney was confirmed in church today! We had a great lesson on fasting in Gospel Principles and one on the Holy Ghost in Relief Society! One thing that happened at church that was a shocker to us was.... SHELIA came to church! Shelia's our investigator that had the issues with the Priesthood but she came to church yesterday and we had no clue that she was planning on coming. A couple former sister missionaries came up to visit this weekend and were able to talk Shelia into coming to church. From the few things that Shelia said about church, she really enjoyed it! We have an appointment with her tonight so we will get to talk to her about it :)
This week should be super great too! Next Sunday is going to be great because Sister Swapp and I get to sing in church :) It's going to be great! Hope everyone's week goes well! Thanks for everything! Love you all!
