Another week gone! Whoever made up the phrase "Time Flies" really did know what they were talking about!
Despite a lot of challenges this week, we still made it great. We were able to go to the Temple on Tuesday and had a great Stake Conference this weekend. New Stake Presidency due to the Stake President going to be a Mission President in Chile in June!
We taught a family from Congo yesterday! Bishop McKee and his family are mentors to them, and they came to Stake Conference with them too. The lesson we had was awesome, Samuel the dad knows English pretty well. He was a pastor for a Christian church in Congo and Uganda. When we taught about Joseph Smith he got really interested and said "If you have a book about this I will read it to know it is true".... perfect intro into introducing the Book of Mormon to them! Very sweet and fun family!
Joy! This is not just joy for happiness, but Joy as in the person! Very sweet lady that is going through some tough stuff in life. We had lunch with her during the week and taught her in Bishop Maxson's home yesterday! Very powerful Spirit there and she accepted to be baptized when she knows this is true and receives that answer! I could really feel how much God loves her and has prepared her for this.
We are still figuring out how to balance working in both wards especially since the boundaries don't touch so we have to cross another ward, which uses time and miles!
I love this work and we have a busy week ahead of us. We have set some high expectations in faith that things will come together :)
Love y'all, Elder Bean
