Week 35: 03/27/17..."APRIL 3RD: SAVE THE DATE"


this week was a warm one for sure!!! 

Anyways, miracles are everywhere! Sister Fun and I have started working with the members in our missionary work and so we are excited to do that this week :) there's one sister, Sister Anderson, who's husband hadn't met with missionaries for over 6 YEARS! so imma change that and get him to the water real soon! (lol jk, ok not really)

Shameika came to church and brought all her kids except Kiko, her 8 year old son! he's so funny, he's always riding his bike around the neighborhood in just his underwear! He probrably didn't want to come because he knew he would have to wear clothes to church, lol! I was SO thankful for the members here in Sav because they welcomed Shameika and all her kids with open arms!! Sis Fun and I were worried that the kids would feel uncomfortable or Shameika would feel that way but everything went so smoothly! all of the kids that came want to get baptized so.... we shall see!

Another miracle that happened was a young man named Marvin came to church! Here's the story about him: He was taught by missionaries for a while and was close to being baptized many times! Each time he was gonna get baptized, he went A Wall! Anyways, while Sis Fun and I were on our way home one day, this woman stopped us and told her the missionaries used to come by and teach her son... Lo and behold, that woman was Marvin's mom! We told her how we've been trying to find him but we didn't know how! She told us that her and him will come to church on Sunday and they did! Joan, Marvin's mom, came for the first time and loved it! the relief society were very welcoming to her and I know she felt loved! I'm hoping that this will be our opportunity to teach the both of them!

Paulette, Shyann, and Cody are still amazing and I'm hoping they can come to church soon! They were meant to come yesterday but weren't able to because there was a man who had to fix the roof of their shop and home slice didn't wanna do it on Saturday! It's okay, I have faith that they will come this upcoming Sunday and watch our very own leaders of today speak to us! 

This past Friday, the sisters of the Sav branch put together a little celebration in honor of the 175th anniversary of the relief society and that was so much fun! I love this branch and all the members!

I can't tell you all how excited I am for General Conference..... but we ALL know that the most IMPORTANT day is that following Monday. Just saying.

Anyways, I hope you all have a great week and enjoy every minute of every moment you're given to do something awesome!

Love you all!

Sister Meli
