Transfers again

Hey Everyone!!

This past week was a good week. A crazy one, but a good one.

We did have transfer calls this week... and I am leaving Kanab. :( I
am going up to Cedar City which is plenty big for this small town
Wyoming girl. At least I am not going to St. George like Sister Kirby
is! She is going to fry in the heat! They are bringing Elders into
Kanab/Kaibab which was a HUGE shock to all the members because Kanab
hasn't had Elders for close to 6 years but the Elders will do a good
job.

We were able to see Rhonda this week and she was doing well, she was
determined to not let Satan beat her. We are sad we aren't going to be
able to see her be baptized, but I know that she will make it there!
Larry will too, even if it takes him a little bit longer.

Besides that we did a lot of knocking on doors. We found a lot of
really good potentials that the
Elders will be able to pick up as new investigators as soon as we are
gone  so the work will continue strong in Kanab!

I love you all!!

May 15th

Hey Everyone!!

This past week was a busy week. Haha, we have been doing a lot of
traveling ever since they combined the stakes. For instance, on
Saturday we went clear up to Duck Creek (which is about an hour and a
half from Kanab and after a few hours there turned around and went
straight to Cane Beds (which is about 2 hours from Duck Creek) and.
Stayed the night there because we were speaking in their Ward the next
day, We car hopped the whole time because we didn't have the miles for
that... I haven't spend so much time in the car for a long time now!
:)

Larry finally came to church!! We were super excited to hear that, we
had been trying to get him to come to church for a while now. We were
finally also able to see Rhonda as well. Samantha has also been making
progress. She has been reading the Book of Mormon and is all the way
in Mosiah!

Other than that, the other really exciting thing was getting to Skype
home for Mother's Day. That was really good, it was great to be able
to see everyone again. Haha, we did have a neat experience afterwards.
So, Sister Kirby loves Lasagna, LOVES it and she turned to me and said
that what she really wanted for dinner was Lasagna and so during one
of our prayers, she prayed that that is what we would have for dinner.
Guess what we had for dinner? Lasagna. God does hear and answer
prayers!!

Anyway, this next week will hopefully be busy lots of lessons. :)

I love you all!
Have a great week!

May 8th

Hey everyone!!

This week was pretty awesome. We had zone conference on Friday and we talked a lot about setting goals. Elder Ballard was President Smiths mission President so when President Smith got a personal email from Elder Ballard suggesting that we that his talk from last conference might be beneficial to this mission...we decided to focus on setting goals. :) 

Haha, we had an interesting experience this week. Sister Kirby and I were walking down the road, going to go find lunch somewhere and we passed this lady walking her dog. As we passed, we said Hi and were moving on when she stopped looked at us and just exclaimed, "What is wrong with you people?" She was a tourist and apparently everyone in Kanab had just been really friendly to her and she couldn't figure out why. It was a neat experience to get to explain to her a little bit more and hopefully down the road she remembers Kanab and the Mormons and explore it a little more. 

We have continued to work with Samantha this week. She has said that the Book of Mormon makes her happier than she has been in a long while. Working up the courage to tell her mom is going to be hard for her, but we know that she can do it. 

We are going to see Larry tonight and Rhonda later this week. We also look forward to week of seeing a lot of people and knocking a lot of doors. We have faith that the Lord will help us find those who are searching for the truth. 

I love you all!! Thanks for everything!

May 1

Hey Everyone!

This past week has been good. We made a trip down to St. George on
Tuesday and dropped Sister Lola off.  Haha, we made a trip back up
that way (to Cane Beds) for district meeting on Thursday... which was
held in a barn. So from now on we be holding district meeting in a
barn... but it is a nice barn. ;)

Sister Kirby and I have been having a good time together. One the
highlights of the week has been playing the license plate game. We
decided that since we lived in a tourist town that we would see if we
could get all 50 states (the real adventure was trying to come  up
with all 50 states when you don't have google... though it is amazing
what you can do with LDS.org)
 We have 37 so far plus some Canada ones.

Then the rest of the week we spend a lot of time finding. We knocked
on so many doors this past week that...not much success but we did
find a lot of potentials. That is alright though. As said, a lot of
potentials.

We did have an exciting moment when someone texted us and said that
they might be interested in learning more. She is a 17 year old girl
named Samantha. She does have one big thing to overcome however, her
mom is pretty anti against the church. We have bee praying for her to
have the courage to come into the Savior and the peace that He can
bring.

Rhonda was out of town this week so we weren't able to meet with her.
Larry was also busy this week so we didn't have a chance to meet. We
hope to have a full week this week.

I love you all!!
