I hope you all are doing well! With the new school year starting, that makes me realize how fast time goes, but oh well I guess!
My week has been pretty fun, although a lot of people are still out of town. We are currently working with a couple different families who are progressing very well! One of these families is set for baptism on September 19th. It is really exciting to teach them because they really just want to learn more. They've seen how the gospel has made their friends happy, and they are prepared. They are lower-income, and the parents have had a rough past. But their family really is what has brought them to this point in learning about the Gospel!
Another good thing to come out of this week has been our recent zone conference. It was such a spiritual experience to learn from President and Sister Ahlander. We talked a lot about increasing our faith and hope.
One really funny thing is how many Neal A. Maxwell quotes that they use in their training's, especially since Elder Maxwell is Sister Ahlander's dad. We were encouraged by the APs to shout "Hurrah for Israel!" as loud as we could during their training. At the end of the zone conference, we sang "Spirit of God". The spirit during that hymn was so powerful that I felt like it noticeably shook the room! It was amazing!
It also rained last week! For the first time in like 2 months! I love it when it rains here, but there's just not enough of it. We even had a rainbow! It was fun!
Hope to hear from y'all! Have a safe and fun week!
