Friends and Family
I have to tell you guys an awesome thing!!
JASON ( Kayla's step dad!) IS GETTING BAPTIZED! ON SEP. 29th!
I am so happy!!! Last night we had dinner with the Lorance's at the Crockett's (member) home. We watched the Restoration DVD. The spirit was so strong! The whole family was there except the youngest (Jasper) he was home with grandma ( cool story about grandma. Cheryl is her name she asked Sister Davis and I if she could go to Dana's and Kayla's class. she said " I think I want to start coming back to church." We were stunned but so happy! Cheryl hasn't been to church for over 15 years. We quickly told her of course you can!)
Back to the story. The spirit was strong during the movie. Sister Davis was entertaining Jacob. I felt the spirit very strong, I knew that the spirit was testifying to me that this gospel really has been restored to this earth! Afterwards, Bishop Betteridge and his son Caleb showed up to home teach the Crockett's. (Heavenly Father knew that all of us needed to be there.) After the movie Sister Davis smoothly took the seat by Jason and I moved behind them to entertain Jacob! We were able to invite Jason to be baptized, the spirit was so strong! I know Heavenly Father really helped Sister Davis and I know what to do to bring the spirit into the lesson. It worked out perfectly-It was AMAZING! President Weaver said " This month lets have the perfect storm." I found out what that meant yesterday. So many things came together to make the perfect storm last night.

I can't believe I have been out (on Thursday..park day eek!) 3 months! Time is flying by and at the same time going by so slow! I need to do what my journal says "happiness is found along the journey". I'm trying to do what my plaque scripture says " Trust in the lord with all thine heart and lean not to thy own understanding." There is a song that I heard last transfer its called "Open My Mouth." I love that song! its about opening your mouth and testifying what you know is true. I'm working on it. Another song is " Don't Give up." I have loved when this song has come on. It seems to come on when I needed it mos. I LOVE personal study! I cherish it!

Zions' camp was awesome, did a rope's course. Loved it! The drive was good too, I'll send a few pics on the drive up. Highlight was the bridge! and I saw so many MORE trees!! :) I'm so excited I have a training this Wednesday, I go see the broadcast Saturday night, have a Baptism Sunday night, then P-day, and then Transfer meeting, then General Conference! I'm so excited for General Conference!!!! How you guys preparing for Conference?
Saturday Sister Davis puked twice. I felt so bad! She is optimistic though. Even when she is sick. She hasn't puked since Saturday she received a blessing. She has a cold and Bronchitis that never went away when she got it a couple months ago. She is a bit better today, less congested. I Love Sister Davis. Well time is up. I love you so much! I hope you have a great week!
