Mighty Prayer #10

So this week might be kinda short sorry.. It's a half P-day today because we are going to the temple on Thursday! The Oakland temple! Where our family began!! Yay!

How is everything going?

Everything here is great! It's beautiful and wonderful and every day gets better and better! Everyone should go on a mission! It's the best thing in the whole wide world!

This week we met a ton of new people! None of our investigators are really progressing.. which kind of gets us down at times, but there are miracles every day that lift us higher and help us to keep going! This week we met some amazing people! But sadly they spoke english so we had to refer them to the Elders. ha. Yesterday on our way into dinner, we got out of the car and there was a man on his bike and he suddenly just stopped. He said "I can't go any further, the Lord told me to stop here. You girls have the light of Jesus in you." Wow! We talked to him for about 5 minutes about the Book of Mormon and how he can feel that feeling he felt all the time, especially when he reads the Book of Mormon. He took the book and tried to pay us, but we had to keep telling him it was free. haha! He was so excited to read it and learn more. He told us, "There are other girls out there that have just gone wild, and you girls have not gone wild! You girls are girls not gone wild!" haha! Then he told us that we are going to have some beautiful weddings and he better be invited! haha! The church is true!
And he felt the Spirit! Please pray for him so he can find the truth and feel that happy all the time! His name is Warren :)

Yesterday was fast Sunday and every fast Sunday, as a mission, we have something called Mighty Prayer, and the whole mission breaks their fast and prays from 4 to 5 pm before dinner! It was the coolest thing ever! I had never done that before and was nervous that I would fall asleep or get distracted or run out of things to say, but it was honestly one of the coolest experiences of my mission! I received so many answers and received so much power that I know I'm going to need
for this month! It was so cool!

Also, on fast Sunday, the Perez family has all the missionaries over and has Scones night! We eat like 10 scones and then weigh ourselves to see how much weight we've gained on our mission! hah! After that, we have a testimony meeting. It was so great!

The Santa Rosa mission is so great! I can't even imagine going to Argentina without learning the things I have been learning here first!

I love you all!
