I Love Prayer!

I loooooved the pictures from Nebraska! Looks like a lot of fun! I love pictures! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD TOMORROW! And so I don't forget happy anniversary on the 13th!! This week was busy busy and it was
 just great!!! Savannah had her baptism interview yesterday and she will be getting baptized on saturday!! So excited for her! She just turned 8 yesterday and she is sooo excited for her baptism, she is so crazy sometimes at our lessons but when we went over the baptism questions I was so impressed with how much she has remembered and she has such a great faith and it is bringing her her family into the gospel:) She really wanted to share her testimony at church yesterday so we helped her come up with what she was going to say and she did
great and was so excited and all the members were so impressed. She is so precious! I just love these people here so much!! And kelly (her mom) told all the relief society that she was going to be a full fledged member in november haha but now we know kind of when she wants to be baptized, she won't set a date until after savannahs baptsim. We have so many miracles coming!!
Meet the new Sister Wells
So jerry met with bishop on wednesday and it went really well!! His two main concerns are tithing and not having nice enough clothes to wear to church. Well yesterday he came with a new white shirt and
tie:) He looked so nice! Bishop helped him out, and talked with him about tithing and we need to follow up with bishop how there meeting yesterday went but think that that problem has been resolved! Jerry really loves bishop and said that bishop told him that he was very prepared to be baptized and that made jerry feel good and because pres ames told him that too that made him feel good! So we were like so when are you going to get baptized tomorrow?? hah he said no, and we said next week? and he said no, so we asked next month? He said maybe, but don't hold me to that!! haha he knows we are kidding but  kind of not really.. ha He just likes to move realllll slow but atleast we have some direction with him now:) He is really starting to get fellowshipped into ward and his countenance has changed even since I first met him! He's in 3 nephi of the book of mormon now:) Love him!

Carrol also came to church yesterday! He is really coming along now and actually reading the bom! He has a desire to learn more and has great questions and says hes been thinking about baptism for a long
time! Missionaries started seeing him over a year ago but he just didn't have real intent but now he is totally awesome!! His birthday was on saturday so during lunch we cut out a lot of hearts to heart
attack his door to wish him happy birthday, he is 78 and lives alone and is really lonely, when we were going to put them up he saw us and came outside, darn haha but we talked to him for a little while and I
asked him of his 78 years what were some of his most memorable birthdays and yesterday at church he said that this birthday will be one of the most memorable ones because of what we did. It brought tears to my eyes that such a little thing that we just thought of on the spur of the moment to do would make such a big impact on him. I'm so glad that we did that for him:) So we did it for savannah yesterday too! I can see that following even the smallest promptings of the spirit can really bless others lives:)
We were able to see a lot of other people this week who hopefully will progressing soon!! So many awesome people!! Our rs lesson yesterday was on prayer and we read this from the BD When we pray in the name of
Jesus Christ, it means “our mind is the mind of Christ, and our wishes the wishes of Christ. … We then ask for things it is possible for God to grant. Many prayers remain unanswered because they are not in
Christ’s name at all; they in no way represent his mind, but spring out of the selfishness of man’s heart” I've read this before but it clicks this time! In the talk we read it also said to prepare for our prayers and imagine Heavenly Father before you are to pray, I did that this morning and I felt like it was more real and I was talking with
him it was really cool! But i'm trying to still be better. I love prayer! And we are trying to help our investigators to have real prayers so they can receive real answers:)

Well hope y'all have the best week ever!! Hurrah for Israel!!
