Okay I have had a great week. Erandi Munden is still on date for November 9th. She is an amazing example of Faith. She is living with her parents while her husband is in Afghanistan and they (her parents) are Atheists. They do not want anything to do with the church. Erandi's mom asked her why she had to go to 3 hours of church every week and Erandi said... "God gave his son so I think we can sacrifice 3 hours of church every week!" I love it! We also went over her Book of Mormon reading and she is in 2 Nephi 24. SAY WHAAA. She loves the Book of Mormon and so does her daughter Destiny. We are going to try and have Destiny's baptism the same day as her moms. Erandi was talking to her husband via Facebook and he asked her if they would continue to go to church when they move. Erandi said "Heck yes we are!" I LOVE THEM!
We had a lesson with Katarine this week and it went very well. She wants to get back in the Book of Mormon. The next step is getting her back to church. We are also continuing to teach that black family that I told you about. They have continued to come to church and love the ward. One of our ward members just called us and asked us for their info and called them and had a FHE yesterday. It shows how much the ward does to help hasten the work. We are also continuing to work with lots of less actives. I have told you about a few DO NOT CONTACTS who we are now meeting with on a weekly basis. We are actually meeting with one tonight and she is feeding us dinner (I have 3 dinners tonight). I have no desire to weigh myself!
I have this feeling that this is my last transfer in Centreville and it makes my heart ache. I have come to love these people so much that they are my 2nd family. I still have a month to make it the best it can be. Ohh Dad I wanted to tell you that a lot of my ward is out of work due to the government shut down. On the bright side it’s pretty good for missionary work. Families are at home in the afternoon :) .
I am happy that Stephanie is married now. How old is her baby again? Wow great things are happening on the west coast. Is anyone dressing up for Halloween? P.S I just found out that our zone is watching Despicable Me 1 and 2 for Halloween. I am so excited. People have said that the 2nd one is pretty good.
Ohhh thank you so much for the CD. I Love it! Continue to send me pictures and have a great week.
Love Sister Smith
