So this week was pretty fun. On Tuesday we went to go see sister Austin, a elderly lady in our ward. We stopped by to visit her and her daughter and son were there so we got to know them a little more. They invited us overfor lunch. we met Janice Metlace, a convert of about 1 year. she has been missing alot of church lately and we wanted to see if things were ok and they were, she was just out of town alot with work. we went to go see the Ramos Family and taught them the restoration and talked about baptism since their Daughter is getting baptized of . They wanted her to understand it more and why not have the missionaries come over and talk about it! we Planned and Taught the phlen's, a family in our ward. We go over and teach their kids, they want them to have a better understanding of the church and stuff. morning we helped someone in our ward move and after that we went to the Ramos Baptism. Later that night we Taught the Marrone Family. We talked about the Restoration. Our lesson went really well, they said they will get baptized when they know the things we told them are true. They are a amazing family, the father john is the only hold up but he is slowly gaining a testimony of the book of Mormon! We to church and didnt see sister Snell, so we asked brother snell and he said that she woke up late and didnt want to come. So guess what elder Clough and I did? We left church, walked home in the snow to get our car and drove over to their house and talked to sister Snell. We told her that their family goal was to make it to the temple by next Easter and missing church isnt going to help her get to the temple. We told her that we left church and walked in the snow to come talk to her because we love her and her family and want the best for their family. After church we went to the Nate Steers house with Josh lyons and made cookies for a elderly lady in our ward. When we got back to Nate's house his mom said that Nate is going to go to Mormon Formal and we (elder Clough and I ) are going to ask her for Nate! I want you to stop and thing about this for a little bit, what would you think if missionaries in your ward came to your house to teach you a lesson but really the lesson was asking your daughter to Mormon formal? We had sister Steers call the parents first so they knew what was going on so things wouldn't be awkward. The Cool thing is, the Girl said yes to him!! you can always count on the Missionaries to get the job done. Well thats all for this week, hope to hear back from you guys soon!
Love Elder Ruiz
