I can't believe it is Monday already.
To start off I went on two great exchanges with Sister Graff (my redheaded twin) and Sister Nebeker.
Sister Graff is amazing. This is her second transfer but you would never have guessed it. We learned more about the role of the spirit in missionary work and the importance of serving a mission.
Sister Nebeker is a sweetheart. We had some really powerful lessons with Jelina and Jacob and also Khoa. They were both focused on the Book of Mormon. We studied and did the best we could to prepare for those lessons and the spirit guided them both. It is amazing how different lessons can be when you prepare and role play verses "winging it". The spirit will always guide when we do our part.
Also this week we had a great lesson with one of our investigators, Keshon. He is Muslim, but as we taught about the Atonement his heart softened and we could see that he was understanding that Christ was more than a prophet. I knew that the spirit touched is heart and that his faith in Christ is growing.
Saturday night we had a Night of Music. Sister McClellan and Sister Zavala came up with this idea in May and it worked so well the first time that we did it again. So we had about 9 musical numbers. Sister Taylor and I sang "Savior, Redeemer of My Soul" with 3 of the young women. I am so grateful for everyone who performed - all of the performances brought the spirit. It was a great turnout - we had about 6 non-members, 5 or so less-actives, and the rest members. So that is what I call a success.
On Sunday Bruce was confirmed! Later that night we had a great lesson with him. At the end of the lesson one of the guys in the house asked us if we were Mormons. We told him "yes" and he continued to tell us that his sister is a member and he has seen how it has changed her life. He also said that he would love to sit in on Bruce's next lesson and learn more about the gospel. Bruce is already a missionary and Heavenly Father is continuing to prepare the hearts of his children.
I love you all and am grateful for your sacrifices.
Bryn and Sister Taylor
