WOW OKAY? What a great week.
Okay so we had dinner with Renie and Ruby May this week and it was so
great because we finally got to meet Ruby May! Apparently she liked
having dinner with us so we were so happy!
It gets better OKAY SO Renie’s baptism was so great. We had all of the
youth sing “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” since we knew her kids Ruby
May and Walker would be coming. Walker ended up not being there but
Ruby May came!
Renie was in tears as they were all singing and after the baptism
Renie told us that Ruby May said “That was really emotional for me too
mom”. Renie helped her to recognize that was the Spirit that made her
Then… MIRACLES…. We had stake conference on Sunday and guess who
came to church? Ruby May. THAT IS A MIRACLE. Then she even went to the
youth meeting after church with Elder Pimentel from the quorum of the
NOT ONLY DID SHE COME but after church Renie texted us saying you will
not believe it but Ruby May got in the car and started crying and says
she wants to be baptized!!!! She says she feels something so different
at this church.
HAHAHAHAHAH WHAT? Is this real life. So we are teaching her Thursday
if we can get permission from her dad. So pray that we can!
Renie is so excited and says the Lord has been answering her prayers,
she says she honestly cannot believe that Ruby May even came to
church. She also says that her relationship with Ruby May has been
better than ever. She just started her new job today and she says that
everything has just been falling into place lately. Ah she is so so
happy. All the time.
So that was cool. Also, Sadie the Ward mission leader’s daughter said
that her friend told her she was searching for truth. Hahahahahah what
okay um yeah that doesn’t happen so then Sadie was like listen I know
some missionaries that can teach you some truth so we had a lesson
with her friend Maddie on Wednesday and she told Sadie she feels so
good about things and is excited to meet with us again!
She is reading the Book of Mormon and is sooo prepared for the gospel.
We are aiming for May 7th for her to be baptized and she says if she
comes to find out this is all true then that’s exactly what she wants
It has been a really great week. We volunteered at the Redlands Bike
Classic so I’ll be sure to send some pictures of that. And Renie’s
other daughter and cousins and neighbors came to the baptism as well
so that was way cool. Also mom Renie made frog eyed salad for us, I
just about had a heart attack I was like IS THAT FROG EYED SALAD?
She’s like how do you know what this is? I’m like MY MOTHER. So she
gave us the leftovers. Pictures and video of me opening frog eyed
saladincluded. Also here’s Zenah’s pictures from last week. Zenah went
to Renie’s baptism, the adult session of stake conference Saturday
night, the 8:00 am special message with Elder Pimentel AND stake
conference at 10 am. Sheesh she’s amazing.
I have never been so grateful for this gospel. I have never been so
happy. Everyone of us can feel this way if we LIVE what we KNOW and
OPEN OUR MOUTHS. SHARE IT.
I have been rejected about a trillion times and waited outside of many
many closed doors that never opened. It’s not offensive to me, but
just sad that people are missing out on real happiness. Jesus Christ
leads His church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we
stand with Him as His followers. We have absolutely nothing to be
Have a great week I love you all.
