Blue eyed... blue haired... super golden investigator!

So I think I definitely took for granted how wonderful it was to be on an island last winter... because now it is cold... and haha I feel like I´m such a baby but I´m bundling up!

So "M" is just incredible... I´m just going to keep writing that every week because she is like the highlight and miracle of our lives at the moment. So we went over this week and she told us that one day she was thinking about the church and was looking at the Book of Mormon and was wondering ´can this really be true´... so she thought about it for a moment and then turned on the tv (haha she also told us that she probably should´ve picked it up and read it... well at least she knows it).. but when she turned on the tv it was a show about the Mormon church (fancy that) and it was talking about baptism... haha  How perfect is that??!!!!  So we talked a lot about her baptism and she is excited for it! She came to church yesterday for the first time and loved it, she loved the messages, the people, the spirit!! Man I´m sooo excited for her!

Hey guess who else came to church... "R"l!!! You know, super Catholic "R" that didn´t want to come to church because she goes to mass... so last week we had a super fuerte lesson with her about how she needs to come to church to know if it is true... and she didn´t come. Then this week we had another fuerte lesson about how she needs to come to church... and then we were really annoying and kept calling her and walked with her to church, but hey- she came!!!! Woohoo.... that is a victory, let me tell you.

We found an investigator this week that is so legit... we contacted her and started telling her about the church and all...come to find out she has researched all about the church and has read the Book of Mormon... crazy right?  She is also such an interesting person- she has blue hair, blue eyes and is a tattoo artist.  Good thing the gospel is for everyone!

Lots of funny experiences this week...
-we met a guy who quoted Princess Diaries to us and then made an analogy from the movie to the gospel... haha so legit.
-We were teaching this lady who would mid sentence stand up and start dancing with her pillow... we invited her to church and she flat out said no... but hey we got an invite to her church!!! :)
-We found this lady whose son is on a mission, and she isn´t a member, so we went to her house for lunch and she absolutely pampered us... super cute

Well love you lots.  Enjoy the winter and the fact that you don´t have to be outside in the cold :)
