This week was pretty good! There is not too much to update on. Sister Bishop is doing so well!!! She is a natural at teaching. She is on top of things and really cares for each person she meets. It has been really fun to have her with us! I really love her. Trios can have their advantages and disadvantages but I think this one is working out well:)
We had three really awesome lessons this week that I would like to share with you:)
1. Kareem Abdul Jabbar (our nickname for him): We have been praying for his hair to grow in so it can get wet and it has!!! It has grown an abnormal amount since we have last seen him. We taught him the Restoration and he said that he knows it is true and that he is ready to be baptized. The only hold up with him (there is always a hold up…darn Satan.) is that he has work every single Sunday for 10 hours!!!
We are trying to figure it out though.
2. A new guy: He has the EXACT same issue as Jabbar. He works every Sunday. Baaaahhh! They have to come to church! But he is the sweetest person I have ever met. He is SO ready to be baptized and it will happen SOON.
3. Two Sisters: I think I told you about one sister last week. She is the most prepared person I have ever met and I mean it! She has a stronger testimony than some people who have been members their whole life. We went and taught her on Sunday and her sister, sat in on the lesson and LOVED it. It turns out she is just as prepared as her sister!! AND their mom wants a Book of Mormom too! It is so cool. We really love that family. They both came to church on Sunday and loved it.
Life is good here in LakeHOOD. Our zone is all getting matching Lakehood hoodies for this transfer! I really love this zone! We had a missionary musical fireside last night at our stake center and the spirit was really amazing. At these firesides we do, we bear testimony of Christ and sing songs about him. This time, we also showed a video titled “Because of Him”. It is a great video that the church just released yesterday for the Easter season! If you haven’t seen it already go towww.mormon.org/BecauseofHim and watch it!
We get to go to the temple tomorrow as a mission and I am so so excited!!! I haven’t been in nearly a year and I can hardly wait! The temple is the BEST. 🙂
I love you all so much! Hope you have a good week!
Love, Sister Cassell
