I got the pictures that you sent, and Lilly Mei looks really good. Yeah, Curtis is just a bit bigger... I'm glad that you all got to spend some time with the now Great grandparents, i'm sure that they enjoyed that.
This week has been flashed by pretty quick, like they all have so far, but not too much happened. Emily did decide to move her baptismal date forward to sometime in December, she just needs to coordinate her schedule, her family's schedule, and her daughter's schedule all together to find a specific date. We just taught the first half of the Commandments discussion to her, and she pretty much took it in stride. She is doing so well, and i know that she will continue to do so as she works and continues to grow.
We picked up a new investigator as well; Dan's old girlfriend, Dora. She called us to start having appointments, and she seems to be willing to do the work that she needs to in order to learn and to grow. We asked, if she found that the church was true, and the Book of Mormon was the word of God, if she would be baptized, and she agreed.
This last Saturday, we worked at a memberhouse in the yard for almost 6 hours. I liked it, because she actually let me dig out all the weeds, rather than making it difficult to do so by not letting me dig deep enough! We were able to clear out an entire flower bed of weeds so that it was ready to plant, and split enough wood to last her the winter. She was really happy about the flower bed, because she said that it had been something that she had been working on for about three years now. She has a really hard time weeding because of a past knee surgery that makes it so that she can't kneel down or put much force on it. We also got to talk to her son Garth (pronounced Gart) for the day. He is an inactive member who is 19 years old, and stopped going almost 4 years ago. He turns out to be a real video game buff, so Elder Jarvis got along really well with him.
Well, that about sums up this last week. I'm glad that things are going well with you, and that Jeffrey had a good play. Michaela, make sure that you don't worry yourself to death about Lilly Mei, especially over the little things. You'll get the hang of everything, and you always have at least 4 people to talk to: Mario, Mom, Dad, and Heavenly Father.
Love Elder Stuver.
