Love you all so much!
Hi family!What an exciting week it has been. Sister Richman left on Tuesday morning which was heartbreaking and we miss her a lot. But I know she is performing miracles for the Lord at home now and thats where she is needed. I guess our missions have to end sometime... Haha on tuesday the funniest thing happened. Sister Escobedo and I were sitting in the car doing something and all the sudden this guy knocks on our window and i jumped it was so creepy but then i roll down the window and he said hey can i have one of your books? turns out he has been to church in tracy (about 30 mins from livermore) before and now he is our new investigator!! he is pretty sketchy and last night we saw him and i think we caught him in the middle of committing a crime but oh well the atonement works on everyone! hopefully he will come to church this next sunday and can begin to progress. a lot of great work is going on here but its been getting really frustrating because we have so much faith and are working so hard, and we have soooo many investigators that are ready to get baptized but they aren't willing to give up the traditions of their fathers or aren't willing to commit to church or something or other. its really tough when you watch people receive answers and feel the Spirit but use their agency to not act. But we are giving it all 100% and praying with all faith. I know this is the Lords work and He will make miracles happen in his way. I am grateful to just be his instrument and work hard. We have a new companion Sister Baldarree she is fresh from the MTC and she is awesome. I really love her. She is full of fire and energy. We are working super hard and being really diligent. Miracles are just around the corner, I know it. Mom you never sent me your final project for that class- I really want to read it!! Otherwise life is really great. We had a fun zone breakfast saturday morning. I am really excited about the new missionaries in our zone its going to be awesome. Everyone is really pumped up and ready to work hard. We are going to see miracles!!!!!!!!! I love you all so much and am so grateful for your prayers. I can feel of their strength. Congratulations Dad on your new calling- you are going to be great!! I am so happy for you!
