Happy, Healthy, and Hopeful

This week boy oh boy was once again AMAZING!!

Jeremiah got Baptized! WOO HOO! It went really well!  Samantha in my last area also got Baptized! 

COOL story: We were eating dinner at the Stokes on Thursday and guess what they told me? Well, Brother Stokes Dad and my Dad both teach Seminary and know each other. Well, Brother Stokes has a twin brother named Bradley. he told me that his twin brother Bradley was named after my Grandpa James Bradley. He said that his parents has my grandpa as their institute choir director! That is awesome and crazy! Small world! Tell grandpa that there is someone named after him! 

We went and saw a less-active couple yesterday. They are only less-active because they are deaf. They have no one to interpret for them at church. It is really sad. I met them for the first time, and had to use my sign language that I learned in High school. It was cool! I wish I could remember more! I hope we can find an interpreter for them soon! 

We  are teaching this mom and daughter April and Makayla. April is  Crystal's ( a member) sister. They now have a baptismal date for April 29th. They are so great! We have such a fun time with them! April decided to move back in with her husband, so she lives 30 minutes away. She told us she didn't want anyone else to teach her, so we have to get special permission to teach her. I am excited to continue teaching her and her 11 year old daughter. 

We met this Girl Danielle last week. We were looking for an unknown member and Danielle lives where the member used to live. Miracle! She is getting Baptized on April 26th! It is amazing the way the Lord works! I am way excited to teach her more because she is 21 and super cool!

Marie was an investigator that we taught for only a little while. Most prepared person ever! Well, she had to move this last week, so we helped her and her mom pack. They are amazing people! We had a lot of fun with them! Her mom actually lives in Texas close to Becky! A cool thing about Marie is she was a Jockey! She went to Jockey school, but had to quit because she had serious knee problems. She showed us all her stuff! It was sweet!

Jada gets baptized this Saturday! I am stoked for her baptism! She is ready for baptism! She is so excited, and the Gospel has truly changed her! It will be great!

Jeff is well on his way to being Baptized! He is golden! He challenged himself to read the whole Book of Mormon before he gets Baptized! Yes, he is awesome! He tells Sister Durfee and I that we are gangstas! haha

funny story.... So we meet with our investigator Michelle this week with a member. The one who says my name a million times and is obsessed with me as Sister Durfee puts it. Well, she asked us about the Gist of tongues and if we believed in it. She asked a lot of interesting questions. Well, in the middle of the lesson while we were discussing things she starts saying all this Gibberish. She was " speaking in tongues" according to her. It was so funny, but I couldn't laugh because they take it seriously. Then she stood up and was yelling praise the Lord, Glory be to God, Hallelujiah!  I just came to a conclusion that my life on a mission should be a movie! It would be a great one because there is never a dull moment. 

We had interviews with our misison president this week. Sister Durfee and I came up with this genius idea that we should co-train. There is only one sister coming in this next transfer, and we told President Woodbury about our idea. He liked the idea too, but we will see. haha! It would be super fun though! 
I just found out this crazy news! Somerset, my last area, is getting closed down with Sisters. They are taking sisters out, closing the bike area, and just having elders again. CRAZY! 
Nicki officially quit smoking on Saturday! Sister Durfee and I are giving up sweets, candy, and dessert until she gets Baptized. It is our sacrifice since she is sacrificing. It is hard, but it is healthier anyways! 
It was another crazy, eventful, amazing, miracle week! 

I love you all! 

Sister Bradley
