April 5, 2010


What a week it has been full of success miracles and spiritual knowledge. Did you not just love Conference it was so good. Family centered and just wonderful I loved it. I am so grateful that we get to listen to them every 6 months. Ok well my week was great, a little crazy and mind boggling but over all great and spiritual.

First- Tuesday came around and we were told that Hna Brodhead (my daughter) was going to come back and be with us for a while because her companion was going back to Temple square and there was no other sister coming in or no other visa waiter or anybody. So Hna Brodhead is with me again (I love her). So we are running her area Madison (20 min away) and our once again two phones, two apartments, 1 1/2 cars, and three sisters. Great fun! We go to her area 2 times a week and then work in ours the rest of the week. It is a little crazy and it just was thrown at us but we are making it work and all is well. We are not sure for how long but at least until Transfers in 2 weeks...then we will go from there.

So after we got all situated and figured everything out we started to plan a wedding with decorations, food and fun along with our other missionary duties.
Friday we had a BODA (wedding)!!!!! It was so good, simple but cute and she really loved it. Her dress was not the modest of things but what can you do. We got her married and they had fun. Then on Sunday....We had a BAUTISMO (Baptism)!!!!! She was a little nervous at first had some doubt running through her mind but we talked to her bore our testimonies and after Sunday morning conference she was ready and she was baptized. She told us after "Thanks girls for helping me" LOVE HER!!!! Her husband Omar is nice he doesn’t talk very much but he is nice. He didn't come to her baptism because he said he didn't want to. He is going to be hard to work with but she wants it for him and we want it for him so we are praying that his heart will be softened and that he will be open to the message that we have to share with him. They are a cute family with there two little boys Omar Jr and Giovanni.

Saturday and Sunday were Great!!!! We had 4 wonderful sessions of conference which were some of the best. I really did learn a lot about families and even things that I can relate here in the mission field. Also that Saturday night while all the men were in priesthood we set 2 more baptism dates for the 25 of April. One with Genaro and the other with Miguel. Genaro came to church on Sunday and really liked it but Miguel didn't so we will have to work with them a lot but they are really good.

Also Olivia and Jessica....I am not sure with them. They are great and I know they want it but we had some problems finding them and then we found them again and she was good said she was coming to church and then she didn't come and we couldn't get a hold of her. So right now there date for the 24th is dropped (because they have to be to church at least three times before they can be baptized) but we just need to work with them more to get them back on track. She is also having money problems so she needs help but we can't help her... But we will keep her in our prayers and everything will work out and go well. We just have to get her back on track.

So right now we just had a baptism and a wedding and we have two more for the 25th of April. The lord is really blessing us and we are doing well. I love this work I love this season. Easter really is a special day...I am sorry that I missed the family party but it sounds like you all had a great time. Know that I was thinking of you all.

P.S- Pictures are of her baptism and her wedding and her colors were pink and white. The ward did the food and we did the decorations with what we could find. Turned out pretty good.

Love Ya!
