5 - 26 / Day 261 What Shin' anigans!

ahhh Clovis ...
Another fun week has come & gone. 
Found out I have shin splints this week and it totally stinks! hahah. I can't even run in the mornings till it's better and even walking during the day is starting to hurt. Whatever... It will get better eventually. At least I hope! 
Miracles have happened this week... that's for sure! 
Shay finally came to mutual and had a blast!!! She even said during it, "I really want to come to church on Sunday!" YES! Music to our ears. She loved church and said, "The people are so nice here, it's great."  Then, later that day she came to a baptism with us!!! She said she wants to get baptized in August, but we promised she could know before than. And I told her I leave June 25th and she was like, "Woah. Okay no pressure or anything." haha. I just love her! Hoping she will be baptized before I leave.  She is the sweetest thing EVER.
We ate lunch with Bills anti wife this week. I don't get her... she is so sweet and loves us a lot, but like won't accept the church. We found out that the pastor at her  church is an excommunicated member who teaches against the church now and helps people get their records removed! LAME. Pretty much the anti Christ. hahahah jk. That's horrible.
Speaking of Pastors of other churches... we're teaching the 7th Day Adventist pastor and his family. Ya... I have no idea how that happened! But it's AWESOME! They're great. They don't even try to argue or preach to us, they just listen and share their testimonies on Jesus Christ! & the spirit is always there! 
We've been really trying hard to invite the spirit into all our lessons. So we've started singing hymns to everyone. I'm just having faith that God will eventually bless me with a beautiful singing voice cause we're trying to help people feel the spirit. haha.
I read Deither F Utchdorfs talk the other day on Gratitude! It's so great. Really really helped me.
"How blessed we are if we recognize God’s handiwork in the marvelous tapestry of life. Gratitude to our Father in Heaven broadens our perception and clears our vision. It inspires humility and fosters empathy toward our fellowmen and all of God’s creation. Gratitude is a catalyst to all Christlike attributes! A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues."
Love you all! HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
