One Year!

How is Idaho Falls doing? I miss it a lot, and I miss you guys! In two days, I will hit one year since I was in my country! One year since I last went to the IF temple, got Reeds Dairy, went to Target, Sam's Club, and all those other fun IF things. But don’t worry, I’m not trunky just yet!! 

I don’t really have time to write much of a group email, but this week Kernizan was supposed to get baptized, we ended up changing it for this week!! So keep praying for him!
I also had a neat experience this week. We have an investigator whose name is Kattia. She is pregnant, and we have been working with her for a while. Honestly, she wasn’t really progressing at first because she was reading the BoM and everything, but she said that there was some reason she couldn’t go to church and she wouldn’t explain that. But we just felt like we needed to be really persistent with her. So after quite a few more visits, she all of a sudden decided she was ready to go to church. Two weeks ago, she went to church. This week, we weren’t able to visit her, and on Saturday night I felt like we should call her and invite her to church even though I don’t like doing it like that too much. I didn’t do it!!!! I can’t believe I didn’t listen!! But on Sunday morning she called us and said "is there church today?" On Sunday night we visited her and tried to put a fecha (baptism date) with her, but she went back to the same problem as always. She can’t understand why she needs to be baptized again. As she explained this, I just prayed thinking, "Heavenly Father, I don’t know how else to explain this to her, I don’t know what else to try. Please help us, we can’t do this alone." And as she sat there explaining, she just kind of came to the conclusion by herself that she would prepare herself to be baptized. We put the fecha for the 27th, and we have been praying so so so much for her! Kattia, who is Haitian, also decided she will be naming her daughter "Madison Marina" my comps and Is names, hahahah so we are gonna have a little Haitian baby born in December :) Please pray for our people, they are so important to us!! 
Sooo much love,
