We taught Kendra again, and she is so excited to be baptized! She came to a baptism on Saturday night, and then to church to see the confirmation. She was thrilled to see what a real confirmation is like! No pressure, and all happy feelings 🙂
We had a wonderful lesson with the Perez Family yesterday, helping them to be self-sufficient with family scripture study. They are going strong! 🙂 We are SO proud of them.
Most of the other things we did this week were visiting potential investigators, former investigators we are trying to get in contact with, or less-active members who may or may not be trying to hide from us haha. Or perhaps our timing just isn’t working out.
I have been reading the ‘teachings of the Latter-day Prophets” books. I finished the Joseph Smith one, and am about 1/3 of the way through the Brigham Young book. I’ve also been listening to the Book of Mormon on CD, Alma 46 – Helaman 5, some of my favorite chapters!
By the way, President and Sister Wilson showed up at our Sacrament meeting on Sunday, out of the blue! President bore his testimony. It was so great!
More Old Occoquan Pictures from Pday
The Book of Mormon is the anchor of my soul, and if you could see what it looks like, it would look like this! 🙂
The beautiful Occoquan River!
More pictures from last week —
Sister Sawada, a member of our ward who is full Japanese, has the MOST BEAUTIFUL orchid! I’ve never seen one with so many blossoms!
A rare glimpse of the horizon. Seriously, it’s been months since I’ve gotten any kind of view of the horizon. This is what it always looks like, but, it’s so rare to be up high enough to see past the trees, I had to take a picture before the chance was gone! It’s amazing, and I sometimes completely forget that horizons exist
Goose that swam over to the dock when we were standing there, looking up hopefully for a piece of bread or something. Too bad, we didn’t have anything to give him! But we got these pictures!
Guy fishing right next to the “No Fishing” sign. There was another guy, about 30 feet away, also fishing. Shaking my head.
This bird would not stop making noise! But it has a pretty song, so it was cool. Try to find this bird in the bird book at the cabin, and tell me what kind it is!
Sister Montgomery did my hair again after our work one evening 🙂 Waterfall braid and curled.
