Week 19 Group Email

Hey hey everyone! 

This last week has been super awesome! :) 

First off, HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!! :) I hope everyone had a great time! We had a super good New Year's Eve dinner at our bishops house. It is a Filipino dish called Lumpia! It's basically egg rolls, with a super delicious sweet and sour sauce :) it was super delicious. Then we had to be by 6, so went back to the apartment and played board games. It was super fun! Then all day on New Year's Day, we went shopping, played basketball, and watched the approved movies, which were Tarzan,
and The Prince of Egypt :) it was super good! 

So there have been a few super awesome things this week. We found a new investigator! His name is "J", and he committed to being baptized!!! That was so cool! He is really interested in learning all about our church, and he says as soon as he finds out its true, he will join it :) it's super cool! I love finding people like this! It's so cool! Miracles have been everywhere lately. 

All of our investigators have been doing great! Since "S" hasn't been progressing much, we told him that especially since we have 1 PM church now, we need to see effort on his part, and that effort needs to include coming to church. So we won't be regularly teaching him anymore, because he needs to take his 37 years of investigating and put some real effort in it now. "D" has been doing great still! Can't complain about that guy ;) he's awesome! The "S" family has
been very very busy, and we weren't able to visit them this week. But everyone else is doing good still!

It's been a pretty typical week other than that stuff! It's been great! :) 

I just wanted to leave a quick challenge with you guys. Especially since it's
the start of the year, I think a really good thing to do along with our New Years resolutions would be to start doing something that you haven't done before. Pres. Uchtdorf shared a old Chinese Proverb "the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now" and that statement is very true. Now is as good a time as any other time to start something we've always wanted to. To change something you've always wanted to. To be something you've always
wanted to be. And we can change and become what we've always wanted to be one decision at a time :) so that's my challenge to you guys. Find something to change. And really commit to it. Show your Heavenly Father that you want to be closer to Him this year. And one of the best ways to do that is to write it down :) I've learned that as well. So get out there and do something! :) 

Love you all!
