This week was pretty fantastic! So on Monday we had a lesson with oneof our investigators in the Bush over Skype!!!! It's always nice toput a name with a Face! We also had another lesson with the H family! They are progressing well! They even payed their tithing and have seen alot of the miracles of paying their tithing so that was awesome!!!!
Best picture of us jumping with the young women!
On Tuesday we had zone conference all the day long. But I loved it! The Soldotna Zone joined our zone and we heard lots of amazing trainings and felt the spirit super strong. I love these meetings cuz it's like spiritual exercise! By the end of them I feel like I understand Ammon and King Limhi a bit better in the Book of Mormon when they pass out when they are overcome with the spirit, cuz that's how I felt! It's tiring stuff but so good!!!! Zone conference was all based off of President Monson talk on the power of the Book of Mormon. We talked about how to use it in our teaching, how it can answer everyone's questions, and how we need to be reading it everyday.

We have been able to go to the family history center to do family history for one of our potential
investigators, we have never met her before but the member who is referring us (who also happens to be the second councilor in the mission presidency, who also happened to serve his mission in Alaska who also happened to teach this referral when he was on His mission..... here... In Alaska) he said we will get to meether and present this family history work to her. We found alot of cool stuff!
Katie bensons baptism
We found a new investigator for the Ocean View ward. We met with him in Carrs (a grocery store the equivalent of Smith's Marketplace). The meeting started out with him saying he has no faith and he's not ready or willing to do any of this, but as we continued to talk with him he told us he wanted more faith and he wanted to change his life, so it was a 180 turn, but he agreed to meet with us once a week! So we are excited!
Look at who I ran into at mlc!!!!
I also got to attend the baptism of someone I got to teach with Sis. Rose in the Inlet View ward
(my first area) it was awesome! She's doing so good!!!!
In zone conference something president Robinson talked with us about was how we present the Book of Mormon. He asked us what the Book of Mormon means to us, our answers were "it's means alot!" "It's the corner stone to our religion" "it holds everything together". Then he asked what does it actually mean to us personally? I realized that I've been Almost apologetic when it comes to sharing the gospel. I love the Book of Mormon , so I need to be more sincere in sharing it with people. Cuz it is true, it along with the Bible has he fulness of the gospel. And I know I forget that sometimes. It is really an amazing book, and it is why President Monson has asked all of us to read it, every single day! So of you aren't, I quote the prophet, "please do so. " It will change your life!
The Book is blue and the church is true!!!! I love you all!!!!
