Hello!!!

Sorry guys, I found a letter I hadn't posted. Thanks for your patience with me.
Andrea

Ok everyone I am so sorry! its been a crazy couple of weeks but i am going to give you an update of everyone!

Anya: she is the mom who has been meeting with us. She hasnt been able to meet in the last couple weeks and still hasnt come to church :( we are hoping to teach her this week about the importance of baptism and taking the sacrament and invite her to church!

olecya: she is a recent convert, and she is so awesome! a little while ago she told her friends that she got baptsied, and they said "we did too! but we dont remember it, we were babies." and she sent them these scriptures:
11 And their little children need no repentance, neither baptism. Behold, baptism is unto repentance to the fulfilling the commandments unto the remission of sins.
12 But little children are alive in Christ, even from the foundation of the world; if not so, God is a partial God, and also a changeable God, and a respecter to persons; for how many little children have died without baptism!
13 Wherefore, if little children could not be saved without baptism, these must have gone to an endless hell.
14 Behold I say unto you, that he that supposeth that little children need baptism is in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity; for he hath neither faith, hope, nor charity; wherefore, should he be cut off while in the thought, he must go down to hell.
15 For awful is the wickedness to suppose that God saveth one child because of baptism, and the other must perish because he hath no baptism.
16 Wo be unto them that shall pervert the ways of the Lord after this manner, for they shall perish except they repent. Behold, I speak with boldness, having authority from God; and I fear not what man can do; for perfect love casteth out all fear.
and her friends like them so much that they posted it all over their twitter, instagram, and other social media sites! she is such a missionary!

Zoya and Lydmilla: A while ago we bumped into a member on the street and asked if she had time to meet (we were going to her member neighbor) and she said yes, but i have a friend over, i have to ask her if shes ok with that. she was so we visited and shared a spiritual thought. Then her friend (zoya) showed up at church! Zoya is visiting from a city so far north in the winter it gets to -60 C (!!!). she said "its so hot here!! im dying!" haha. she is a way funny babushka that is about as tall as my hips. she is very sensitive to the spirit and she loved the first lesson. her daughter, Lydmilla, (and granddaughter) were on the lesson with us and it was so cool to teach a family! we are hoping to meet with them again soon! they wont be leaving to go back home for a while so we shall see!

Alla: she is an investigator who is pretty slow. She is really cool and really kind, and loves to meet with us. She has a hard time understanding, because she comes from no religious background at all and so its kinda hard to teach her. we went and taught her this last saturday and she told us we were "prideful" and "wanted to argue" with her. she said "i don't like that you come here thinking you are going to teach me something!" well... thats sorta awkward because that is all we had in mind! so yeah that was an interesting lesson. she called us and apologized and said she wants to meet again so i guess we will think about it.

Sister Ibragimova and i have been so busy its so much fun. We are just running around meeting tons of new people and this week we even took off our hats for a second!
love you all and have a great week! happy birthday dad!
Sister Wilcox
