Week 5 of Transfer 4

Hey, everybody! :)

This is the last week before transfers...we don't think anything is
going to change but you never know. :)  if anyone is going to leave it
will be Sister Lola (knock on wood) but we think she still has one
more transfer left in her here in Kaibab.  Transfers are slightly
annoying sometimes...

We had a couple interesting experience this week. First off, One of
our Ward Mission leaders texted us and told us about this girl,
Satoria, in his Ward who had been coming to church with her
grandparents for forever, but for some reason was not baptized so we
got over there pretty quick and turns put it just hadn't happened
because the dad, a less active member, hadn't gotten around to it but
he was very open to us coming back! We were super excited about that,
and in fact we have our first lesson with her tonight. :)

Another happy note we had this awesome person we were teaching, her
name is Carolyn, but she decided to drop us. :( But we got a call from
her earlier this week saying that she wanted to see is again, she
didn't want to talk about the gospel but she did want to be friends.
That was really exciting to us because we had not had any contact with
her since we knocked on her door and she told us she didn't want us to
come over anymore.  So for the moment we are just going to be friends.

On a not so fun note we were going through the unbaptized children
list and knocked on one of the doors and this lady invited us in. We
thought she was a member and she was talking about her conversion
she... and then she mentioned Joseph Smith... and proceeded to bash
the church and everything in it quit harshly. Hahah, the funny thing
was she kept saying how 'we could just be friends, and we didn't have
to talk about religion at all (when she was literally the one doing
all the talking) and then she would bring up something else about the
church she didn't like. Sister Lola and I were talking afterwards
about it and how a person can lose their testimonies like that and it
just goes to show. This woman had a testimony, she had gone to church
for 10 years,  then she stopped doing the little things that would
keep her testimony strong. She stopped doing the things that she was
supposed to be doing and it lead her down a path of places she didn't
want to go.  We have to keep doing those things small and simple
things that are apart of our everyday life, if we do that, then we
will be alright.

I love you all!!
