Nicholas Cage Story

So I don't really know the story, maybe I will hear it in tomorrow's email, but Julia met Nicholas Cage in the grocery store in Kanab.  She was able to take a selfie with him and Sister Lola.  The other Sisters serving in Kanab also ran into him and took a picture.  Here is the email that Julia sent to Rebecca and the picture.  I'll also post the other sisters picture just for fun.

So... guess who we ran into while we were out shopping this morning... Nicholas Cage. Not the person I would have chosen to meet... He is kind of grumpy. Hahha, we took a picture with him and he look at his weird smile.  image1.JPG
Anyway, he is making a movie here in Kanab... Again. He was slightly strange.

Hey, everybody! :)

Last Monday a family whom we have been working with took us sledding,
and it was Sister Lola's first time. Her first time down she was flung
off her sled did a face plant in the snow but she got up smiling and
laughing. It was pretty funny. :)

This past week was pretty awesome. We were able to teach a man named
Jeff. He is from Texas, but lately his family and him have felt that
they needed to get out of the city and somewhere where they could
provide for themselves and long story short they ended up in Cane
Beds, Arizona. He is so prepared for the gospel. :) We were going to
teach him last week but he was sick, so this was the week. He took
everything we had to share pretty well and promised us that he would
have the introduction and testimonies read by time we came back as
well as that he would pray about it. We are excited to go back this
Wednesday and see how it went.

We also have continued working with Satoria. Her baptism is still on
for this Saturday so we are pretty excited about that. She is such a
cute little girl.

We also went back to see Carolynn this week. She isn't someone who is
ready for baptism yet but we stop by every now and then just to see
how she is doing. This week she was telling us how there is just
something different about the people. She couldn't quite put her
finger on it, but there was something different about us. Well, we
knew what it was!  If only we could get her to see that...  Members of
the church do have a light about them. We may not be able to see it,
but others can.

I love you all!! I hope you have a fantastic week!

Hey everyone! :)

We have been busy this week, and next week looks even busier! But we
are excited about that. :)

Last night we saw Satoria, which is always fun. But it turns out over
the past week or so, she and her brother Oliver have read the whole
Book of Mormon Stories that we left them! That was exciting to hear.
We challenged her to keep reading it and hopefully she will.

Yesterday we also got to see Finley and her sister Cashlynn which is
really good because we hadn't been able to see them all week for one
reason or another. It is so fun to teach them and work with them.
Haha, we were teaching them about tithing,and we use M&M to help teach
it. At one point in the lesson it involves M&Ms being dumped out to
show the blessings of paying our tithing, and it was way cute. Their
eyes just light up and Cashlynn got really excited and asked us  if
they 'Can pay tithing to?!'  We assured that she could and in fact we
were greatly encouraging her to do it. :)

This past Thursday we also had zone Conference, plus interviews for
the Kanab and Kaibab sisters because we live out in the boonies. It
was really good, but afterwards our senior couple (who we rode up
with) took us back through Zions National park. That was fun to see
again and Sister Lola loved it a lot.  This was her first time going
there and even though we didn't stop and do any of the hikes (because
it wasn't P-Day) she kept requesting that Elder Robinson stop and just
leave her there. I attached the pictures of the selfie that we took in
the car. :)

I love you all!!
