Hi All,
Let me tell ya, it’s amazing how the Lord works!!
We have really been struggling finding new people to teach.
 We haven't really found a new investigator for a while!
Thursday we had our district meeting.
 Our district consists of one set of Elders in La Verkin
the other set of Sisters from Kanab, and us. So long story
short, we were all struggling with finding new people to work with. We had
until Sunday to reach a goal that we had made earlier that month. So
we had 3 days to find new people to teach but we new miracles could
happen!!  In 3 days we ended up meeting 5 new people that are interested in learning more about the church!! It was a miracle worth waiting for!

Friday we started teaching a 12 year old girl who randomly came up
to us and wanted to be baptized. ha!  Then Friday we also started
teaching this older lady. She is awesome, but quite stubborn but it was a
really spiritual lesson!  I know she felt the spirit!
Saturday were able to meet the lady from the miracle phone call we got last week.
 She moved here a few months ago. She wanted to come to the
General Women’s Broadcast. So we met her for the first time and watched
the broadcast at the church with her. She loved it!  the spirit
was so strong.  Afterwards we taught her the restoration lesson.  it is
amazing how prepared she is for learning more about the gospel.
She kept talking about the spirit that she felt.  It is a great experience to teach her.
And I’m excited to keep working with her!

Sunday we had an appointment set up with a less active family and

they have two kids who want to be baptized. It was a crazy lesson with
their 7 kids running in and out haha but it was fun, and they are a great
family. We look forward to teaching them.

Everyone of those new investigators the Lord has been preparing for
this time. These last few days have just been full of miracles!

Our recent converts are also doing really well. We had a great lesson with
Mike and he has been passing the sacrament every week. It sure made me
happy to see Mike in his white shirt and tie passing the sacrament.
Its truely been an amazing week.  It makes all the hard times worth the effort.

"Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back,
behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brotheren, the
Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give
unto you success"
(Alma 26:27)

Pictures: we went to the sand dunes for pday. Super fun! ( we are
those tiny black dots at the top of the sand dune)
Oh and we thought it would be a cool picture to throw sand...ha! Til

it was blown back in our faces. So there are the before and after pics of


Flash Flood, Kanab Cowboys Homecoming, Apple Festival,
This week was all over the place...! A definite low was the Flash Floods in Colorado City and Zion.  It really affected the community here. All the deaths and destruction was truly tragic.
We had sooo many service opportunities this week!!  We helped make a ton of  blankets for a Humanitarian project which is always fun. Then, this week was homecoming for the Kanab Cowboys! So we got to see the cute little homecoming parade and on Friday night, and we were asked to help in the concession stand during the football game. I swear the whole town came out for the game! Ha! But, it was way fun and they sure kept us busy! Then, on Saturday we were asked to help out at the Apple Festival in Glendale. It was really good to do service and so meet so many new people!
So funny/awkward story. We were walking one evening and we went and knocked on this a door , and this older woman opened the door. She wasn't overly nice and she said she wasn’t interested and then just shut the door. I remember walking away wishing I would have at least said something, anything about the gospel. But she really didn't give us a chance to talk. So then fast forward to a few days later...We live in the side apartment of one of our ward mission leaders home. So we went home for the night and we had to ask him a question. So we went to his side of the house and you will never guess who was over at his house at that very moment...it was the lady who we had knocked on her door only a few days before! haha! She was over helping our ward mission leader and his wife with something. It was a little awkward at first.... But we were all visiting and I sat down next to her and was able to have a good long conversation with her. It wasn’t about the gospel at all, but I just got to know her, and she was great, and hopefully she could see that we were nice normal people! It’s amazing how the Lord works!  Maybe next time she will let us in.
We have started teaching a man who is no longer a member of our church.  He is a great guy, and sadly he has throat cancer. But we invited him to church and he came!!! It was the first time he had been to church in forever!!  It was great to see how happy everyone in the ward was to see him!  Also one of our younger investigators that we have been teaching finally came to church!!!! We have been trying to get him to church for 6 months and he finally came! We almost died when we saw him in sacrament meeting! It was a great sight!!  We were so happy!!
Sunday evening we went with some members and our investigator, who is a 12 year old boy, to St. George to see a performance by the Navoo pageant people. It was a great
little performance...not sure how much our investigator (12 year old boy) liked it, but I think he had fun.   ha!  but it was a good experience!!
Well we have really been working hard finding those who are looking for the gospel. I feel like we are constantly doing things to meet and find those who are prepared! Well a miracle finally happened! We got a phone call and there is a woman who has been reading the Book of Mormon, she wants to come to church and be baptized!  We haven't met her yet...but that call was a miracle!  An answer to our prayers.  Don’t know how it will go...but it gives us hope because I know there are people here who need and want the gospel in their lives!  
The gospel is true and I love my job!

Hi All,

This week had its ups! and downs for sure :)   And, we did get a new investigator this week...she recently moved here from Connecticut and she had contact with the church  there. She is so excited to learn, we are excited to teach her, there are good things to come! We are also working with this older man...he is awesome and he will do everything we invite him to. He loves reading the Book of Mormon and everything !! BUT he will NOT pray!!! AHH Its crazy....I know Heavenly Father loves him and He just wants to hear from this man...but he will not pray. Prayer is so - powerful but we must actually do it and have faith!!!

Saturday night we had the opportunity to do a really cool service opportunity! One of the small towns that we cover, Orderville, has a Demolition Derby every year!  Ha! And they needed help in the concessions stand, so we got to go help out with that!! It was crazy how packed the Place was...people came from all over to see the Demolition Derby!  I guess it’s a big deal around here.  It was really fun and we got to meet new people and see a lot of people that we are already working with so that was a plus!

Sunday, we were sitting in one of the ward's fast and testimony meetings. All the sudden this woman (a visitor) got up to bear her testimony. She was just visiting Kanab from Poland and she had wanted to go to a church. So she found this one and went to it. She didn’t speak too much English but she shared her love for Jesus Christ!  After the meeting we ran to talk to her...we caught her just as she was on her way out!  Her name was Ewa. We told her that she could find this same church in Poland. We took her across the street to the Family History Center and got her a Polish Book of Mormon! We even looked up the closest LDS church building to her home. She left with the address to the building and a Book of Mormon in her own language. She was really excited!  It really reminded me that by "small and simple things great things are brought to pass". it’s the small moments the when we share that gospel that count. A lot of times we get to share the gospel but we don’t see that much happens from it. But it’s planting seeds for when the time is right for that person. The Lord has His own timing but, when we  do even the small and simple things it further prepares His children to hear the beautiful message of hope that the gospel brings!! 

Thanks for all the love and support!
