Harry Potter & Elect Investigators

Hi friends!

Oh my gosh, this week.

So on Tuesday we were EXHAUSTED. Have you ever been so exhausted that you just act silly for no reason? That was us! EVERYTHING was funny. I don't know why. We were literally laughing till we cried! It was mania. One of our conversations went as follows:

"Hey, this looks like a pine cone!"
" is."
"WAIT! Pine cones grow on trees?"

We laughed and laughed at that. Even though we were so tired we couldn't fall asleep so we did late night arts and crafts. Sister Nelson decorated my Preach My Gospel and we had an extra one to cut pictures out of! She started tearing apart the spiral twisty thing that holds the book together and then we realized it was MINE!!! It was full torn apart. Terrifying. Good thing we had an extra one to fix it all up! Now it looks super cute and all is well.

Sister Nelson has read Harry Potter 8 times and seen the movies 5 times. She was appalled when she found out that I've only read the first book and seen a couple of the movies. She then took it upon herself to give me a thoroughly detailed synopsis of every single book over the course of three days to fix this "blasphemous situation." Now I have a taste of the universe that is Harry Potter and I'm a fan for sure. Truly converted.

ALSO! On Friday it was 65 degrees and sunny!! We got smoothies and weekly planned outside on the grass. We laid there and I could actually feel the warmth of the sun on my skin for the first time in I don't know how long. Don't take that for granted you Arizona people! Last night, Sister Nelson was like "If it's sunny tomorrow, I'm wearing the skimpiest outfit I own. Short sleeve shirt and basketball shorts." Haha....

Okay but missionary work. Sorry for the tangents. MIRANDA IS SO ELECT PEOPLE. She came with us to a baptism so see what one is like! We taught her about the Plan of Salvation, so where we were before this life, our purpose here on earth, and where we are going after this life! We also showed her the Prince of Peace video. She cried. She is on date to be baptized May 27th, if not sooner! It is such a refresher, getting to work with someone who has been completely prepared by the Lord to receive the gospel. Someone who has been prepared actively reads, prays, and searches for answers. They are willing to make the changes necessary in their life to follow Jesus Christ. Gradually watching Miranda's conversion is the best thing ever.

Oh I almost forgot! We found 2 more investigators this week! One was a former, Susan. She said she doesn't think she'd convert but "true doctrine understood, changes attitude and behavior" so we are gonna keep teaching her. The other is Danti. He is hilarious!!! He's white but thinks he's black and started hugging and patting the Book of Mormon. It was awesome.

That's all I have for today! Make it a great week! 💛

TULIP FESTIVAL 🌷 It was basically the prettiest thing I have ever seen. We took pics for days. Enjoy!
