It has been a fantastic week. Sorry I forgot to tell you that I would be writing on Wednesday because we got to go to the temple. The temple was very awesome today. And afterward we had a great missionary opportunity. We had a lady take a picture of Elder Tait and I together and it turns out she wasn't a member. She had watched some of conference and we got to answer her questions about it and point her to mormon.org. She likes the temple because of the peace it brings.
The big news of the week is that our miracle family came to all three hours of church. We taught them a lesson the next day and we learned that Noah hadn't really wanted to come and felt like the Mormon thing wasn't for him. Mary Lou is super fired up about church and convinced him to go. She told him how much she wants an eternal marriage. Then the Sunday school lesson was on eternal marriage. After church Noah changed his mind and decided that he wants to be around happy people and that this is the path for him. Our ward is awesome and they did such a great job fellowshipping. Then the very next day we committed them to live the Word of Wisdom which is going to require some very big changes for them. Yay I am so excited for them.
This week we also met with Daniel Lopez. He has committed to stop drinking alcohol. He knows everything is true and is going to get baptized after his divorce is final next month. He is awesome and has a lot of faith. He wants a fresh start in life and knows how much this can help him.
