Well hello there family,
I am just going to jump into it. We had some awesome things happen this week! First of all, Bruce is on track for his BAPTISM on Friday! I am so excited for him. Yesterday at church he wore a suit for the first time since we have been teaching him (thanks to Brother Avila).
On Friday we had a ward potluck and it was a great turnout. Linda and Gib both came. I love the Star Lake ward - they are so friendly and welcome everyone.
We had another Festival of Finding as a mission on Saturday! We met together as a zone and then split off and went finding all day. Sister Taylor and I were able to teach on the spot a lot. We also contacted a media referral that we received. The dad is an inactive member that is married to a non-member. He wants his kids to be baptized. So when we stopped the dad opened up to us. He said this is the first time ever that sister missionaries had stopped by. He was grateful there were sisters in the area. We met his kids and committed them to come to church.
The second part of Festival of Finding I was with Hermana Van Leuven! I still can't speak Spanish...so I just prayed while Hermana Van Leuven taught. We found some awesome potential investigators for the Spanish branch. We also taught a man to pray that had never prayed before. After he prayed he said that it felt good and he hadn't experienced that feeling before. It was such a testimony builder to me of the power of prayer!
The General Women's Session was wonderful. I loved it so much. I am so pumped for General Conference!!! #ldsgenconf
At Church on Sunday Linda, Bruce, and the 2 kids came - Jalina & Jacob. It was awesome! The youth helped out so much with Jalina and Jacob. I don't think they had ever been to church before but they liked it!
Sunday night we had a stake meeting to announce boundary changes... The Stake President spoke about building up Zion and he walked us through the process of how they came to the conclusion of the changes. By approval of the First Presidency they consolidated 9 wards to 6 wards. Three wards were discontinued and divided into the other wards in the stake. It was pretty crazy because now there are 3 sets of missionaries that don't have areas. The next few weeks will be interesting. Star Lake got bigger but we aren't sure if Elders will be serving in the ward with us or Redondo.
As always I love serving the Lord and feel my Father in Heaven's love everyday!
Much Love,Sister Wynder
