Dear Family & Friends,
Great week again! We were on exchanges this week with East Sacramento and North Sacramento. We also did team ups with the new missionaries. I haven't spent as much time on a bike as I did this week in a long time!! It felt so nice. Besides the sunburns on my arms and ears haha.
Update on Katherine. She is doing awesome! While I was in North Sacramento on exchanges, Elder Greenwood and Elder Ross went over to teach her. She invited her friend Derek to come sit in on the lesson. They had an amazing experience and Katherine actually ended up testifying to Derek that she knew that the things we shared were true and she could not deny it! They extended a baptismal date for August 6th and she is praying about it. She wanted to come to church first before she committed to it. Yesterday she came to church with Derek and her kids and they loved it! The kids made some new friends in primary which they were really excited about. After church they drove up to the temple without telling us and they want to do a tour sometime so this Tuesday we are going up with Elder Terry to do a tour around the temple grounds and then teach them their next lesson. We are going to recommit her and Derek to be baptized on the 6th of August while we are there so we are anxiously waiting for tomorrow!
We have some amazing things going on in our ward right now. I have never felt as much trust and love from a ward then I do in this one. We have been really focusing on strengthening and uplifting the members as much as we can. It's been a great testimony builder to me that if we take care of our own, the Lord will bless us with new people to teach because they will have a safe home to be brought into.
It's going to be another really busy week. Back to back to back exchanges all over the place so I'm making the most of this Pday because I'm going to need it haha.
