Monday, April 18, 2016

So this week was pretty great! We got to have zone conference and we got new phones! And the little black boxes in our cars that make sure we aren't driving like crazy people! So that's fun..

Then we got a big announcement! On April 29th an apostle is coming!!
Any guesses on who it is?
ELDER HOLLAND!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!! It's going to be such an amazing experience!

The rest of zone conference was great. We had some really awesome trainings!

On Thursday sister Vaaie and I got to go to the temple! The Las Vegas temple has become one of my favorites! I'm so thankful to be living so close and that we get to go so often. I always try to have a question with me as I go to the temple and I have always gotten an answer! The spirit I feel in the temple is so strong and I always feel so much love from my Heavenly Father!

We got this amazing investigator this week! Her name is Shawn! She actually lives in California but she has been visiting one of our members for a few weeks. She used to be a member but called salt lake years ago and got her records removed. She wasn't completely sure if she was a member or not so she called salt lake to double check. After she called them she called us to let us know what she found out. We asked her if she was still a member or not and she said "no, but I need to be one." She is awesome! She has been reading the Book of Mormon and relearning all of the things that she learned as a kid.

Yesterday I surprised her with a new CTR ring just like the one she had when she was a kid and she was so excited! She has been such a blessing in our lives and her testimony has grown so much in just a few days! We sadly will need to refer her to missionaries in California this week but we will be keeping in contact with her and encouraging her as she works towards baptism! Her goal is to be baptized on May 7th!

Yesterday we had a special stake sacrament meeting.. In that meeting they completely changed the stake. Only one ward stayed the same and all of the rest were dissolved. So now there are three new wards in the stake! And we have a new area! We are now in the Stewart Place ward and we have so many more houses in our area! Finally! We had like no houses in our are before but now we have huge neighborhoods! And apartments! And two weeks to left in the trAnsfer to figure everything out.. It will be a busy couple of weeks!

That's pretty much all for the week! Hope everyone is doing well! Love you all!

Sister Hopper
