June 27, 2016
This week was interesting. I feel like nothing happened this past week, so it might be a short email D: On Tuesday we were able to help out at the ranch again so that was super fun and we were able to talk about the gospel with the owner a little bit! Yay!! We were able to bike on Friday a little bit, we started talking to this guy who was working in his garage and he started bible bashing us and all this stuff, but we were able to testify of Jesus Christ! Saturday was a super crazy weird day! We tracted in the morning right after our studies and we got 3 referrals!! Go team!! We were so excited! We tried a bunch of potentials but they wanted nothing to do with us and kept on telling us what we believed in was wrong.... but all we could do was testify! Also on Saturday it was super cool! So we had just walked out of the house and we were getting ready to do service, so we were putting everything in the car and Sister Winiger goes, "Sister Rook, there is a man over there. What do we do?!" and so I looked and It was my Brother-in-law Joe!!! I ran over to him!! I was so surprised and shocked I didn't know what to say! It didn't even feel real! Joe also came to my ward on Sunday and got to hear me speak! It was super cool. It made me so happy! Well time is almost out but I wanted to share this way cool quote that I found with you! "We have more friends behind the veil than on this side, and they will hail us more joyfully than you were ever welcomed by your parents and friends in this world; and you will rejoice more when you see them than you ever rejoiced to see a friend in this life; and then we shall go on from step to step from rejoicing to rejoicing, and from one intelligence and power to another. Our happiness becoming more and more exquisite and sensible as we proceed in the words and powers of life." -Brigham Young . Well I have to go, but I love and miss you all! I hope you have a great week!
