This week we moved into our new apartment. It took all day long and was pretty stressful the day before because I am apartment leader and needed to make sure everything was packed and ready to go. I was a bit bratty that day. Aiyah. Anyways moving wasn't too bad basically because the Elders did just about everything and we cleaned. The Elders were so helpful this week and had to have A LOT of patience with us. Especially with Sister Hadley, because she locked the keys in the apartment twice and then dropped them down the Elevator shaft :)

We had a great lesson with M. this week where we both really listened to the spirit and gave her a baptismal date that wasn't even planned. She accepted but is not super stable on it because she is nervous what her mom will think about it. Her mom is way into baaisahn (ancestry worship). Please please pray for her mother's heart to be softened as she notices the change Christ brings in M.. Funny that you mentioned that in your email, Mom, because that is exactly what M. told us she is hoping for. I have been doing a personal sacrifice for M. which is not popping any knuckle or joint. haha it is really hard!! But I haven't done it since I made the sacrifice. It really helps me focus on her and think about her constantly. Her baptismal date is May 31st.

We ran into a Lost Sheep this week while finding. Pretty cool. Her name is Sister K. She said she would come to church yesterday but didn't show up. Keep you updated.
Remember when I told you about the handicapped girl we got to pray with. We've had two very similar experiences with two other very similar teenage girls since that night. I think God is just trying to help me understand the love he has for his children and its easiest to feel that around those people. Very tender mercies.
Aunt Lori sent me a package this week. So nice! Excited for Jared to head out on his mission!
PPS Is Ngoih sang Leuih's name really Penny? (Ngoih sang leuih is my older sister's daughter haha) I love that. I think that is the cutest!
I love you and all and hope your missionary experiences were awesome. Plantin' seeds is all it is really. It takes a few times for most people to recognize the Lord calling after them (3 Ne 11:1-6)
3 And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, they heard a voice as if it came out of heaven; and they cast their eyes round about, for they understood not the voice which they heard; and it was not a harsh voice, neither was it a loud voice; nevertheless, and notwithstanding it being a small voice it did pierce them that did hear to the center, insomuch that there was not part of their frame that it did not cause to quake; yea, it did pierce them to the very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn. 4 And it came to pass that again they heard the voice, and they understood it not. 5 And again the third time they did hear the voice, and did open their ears to hear it; and their eyes were towards the sound thereof; and they did look steadfastly towards heaven from whence the sound came. 6. And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them; 7 Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name - hear ye him.
