This email is going to be kind of short because I am pressed for time :) We went to Mount Rainier this morning and only have 1 1/2 hours to finish emailing and shopping :) This week was really good :) It started a week ago this past Saturday with President Eaton calling us.... UH OH! He just wanted to talk with us about our contacting because we weren't getting a very good average (not like it's about the numbers but...). We keep track of how many people we talk to throughout the week and then average that total at the end of the week and ours hasn't been very good lately. President invited us to set goals to talk to more people this week and we did it! It was cool to see how I had changed just from trying to contact more people.
We also had a couple awesome lessons with a family that we met, Shakita and Harvin, and their 6 kids! They are super fun to teach because they have lots of questions and seem to understand and like everything we teach :) We have another lesson with them tomorrow night so we will see what happens. :)
We also had a miracle happen this week! I think it was a blessing that came because we were striving to talk with more people! So we have an older couple, the Foleys, in our ward serving as Full-time missionaries in the stake. They live in the Dolloff Lake ward but they pretty much do everything in our ward. So sister Foley called us and told us that she had someone who was ready to take the missionary lessons! :) It was awesome to talk with her about Inga and to meet with her yesterday! Inga is amazing! She enjoys learning all about the different religions but she really loves everything that the church is about. We taught her the Restoration yesterday and all she kept saying about the First Vision was "WOW!" She also committed to be baptized on September 27th!!!! We are so excited! :)
Mount Rainier was AWESOME! We just drove up to Paradise and hung out there for a couple hours but it was super cool! Mount Rainier was covered by clouds so we didn't get to see it from the base of the mountain but it was still super pretty! There were some amazing sights to see and it was a nice stress-free activity compared to this last week. :) Dad, we definitely have to go hiking at Mount Rainier when we come back up here after I get home :)
Hope everyone's week went well! Glad it's a new week..... Having a little bit of a cold is not fun on a mission but I am on the mend now, thank goodness! Hope everyone has a great week! Love you all!
