Weekly Email :)

Hello Everyone!
Lots of BYU fans were here for the football game! Ha almost everyone that came into the Visitors' Center was wearing BYU shirts and hats haha! We represented well in DC! ;)

This week went by so fast! I can't even believe it! I don't even know where to start!
Melody- She is doing so well! She came to the Relief Society dinner activity that our ward had and she really enjoyed it! She told us and Bernice, "Wow it feels like I have 3 new sisters in my family!" Haha it was so cute! I love the unity and sisterhood in our church. We are all a big family! We taught her the Plan of Salvation this week as well! She is so excited for her baptism in October! She is changing so much just in the couple weeks we have known her! She is just the best and such a huge miracle.

Doris- So we got to meet Doris this week! She was a media referral! When we got over there we got to know her and then started to teach her! She recently had one of her daughters  pass away and so we taught the Plan of Salvation to her! She found so much hope in this plan our Father in Heaven has given to us! It was really neat, she told us the one thing she wishes she would have done, is have her daughter baptized. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to testify of temples and how we can do that essential work for our ancestors who have passed on who didn't receive those essential ordinances while they were on the earth! I am so glad we are able to do that for them so that they have
the choice in the next life to accept it. Temples truly are so special!

Rachael- Huge miracle this week with her! So Rachel is the one who has a strong desire to get baptized but her parents are not supportive at all. BUT GUESS WHAT!!! Bernice took us all out to lunch and RACHAEL'S MOM CAME!!!  It was nice to get to know her mom a little bit more! I
know their hearts will be softened one day! I am so grateful for Bernice! She is such a key member in the Bethesda ward!:)

We brought a cute young woman out with us who is preparing to go on a mission soon! That was such a neat experience and we saw lots of miracles!

Well those are some experiences this week! I love you all! Here is a quote that I really liked from this week! It is by Brad Wilcox, "Scriptures make it clear that no unclean thing can dwell with God
(see Alma 40:26), but no unchanged thing will even want to". I love this quote! Change is so essential! I am glad this mission is changing me!
