Bitter-Sweet News

It sounds like everyone is having fun!  I am so excited to hear what you are all doing.

This has kind of been a sweet/bitter week.  Two sister Missionaries in our Zone got into a big car accident.  Sister Bentley (from Arizona) was airlifted, but passed away.  Sister Love received severe injuries, but is fine, and is back home recuperating for 6-8 weeks.  It is a sad thing to hear, but we know she is in a better place.

We did not have dinner with Carin, but was able to meet with her on Thursday.  She is feeling a bit stressed out still.  Only God and time will help right now.

Mrs. Edmunds was not ready this week to stop smoking, but we had a great lesson on the restoration and had a member there who gave such a strong testimony.

Shannon.  We had a church tour with her kids.  We hope to get her to church this next Sunday.

We are making some progress with less-actives, and getting into more members' homes.  So we are expecting to see more referrals, especially as we follow-up with the people in the Preach My Gospel class.

Lots of biking. The weather has been so warm!  My white shirts are going under some major stain removal!

We should be getting more rain and wind a few more days from other tropical storms moving this way.

Have a great week!

Keep moving!  Like Jenny says: Our Family does Hard Things!
