Week 47: those tan lines though

This week was so great. Its finally summer here in Colorado and its getting so warm and its so great. We've been spending every second outside and oh man am I getting tan. the missionary tan lines are too real. my toes are so white and my farmers tan is the WORST. and its so funny. I love the weather out here. Colorado is too beautiful.
So this week was so great. We had zone conference this week and that was awesome! We also went on exchanges which was super fun.
So some really cool stories this week. So our investigator, Valerie, she told us this week that she got her answer and that it was no. So we met with her again and helped her resolve her concerns and then she committed to continue to keep the lessons. At the end, she was like, "I was fully intending to give you back your book and walk out. But you changed my mind. I can't do it. God knew how much I love young girls like you and so He sent me you." And we were so happy! We just wanted to cry. and THEN. She fasted that she would get her answer and we fasted with her and she got her answer that the church is true!!!! And she committed to be baptized on July 9th!! It was such a tender mercy! I love her so much.
Then we had our investigator who we've been teaching, named Aaron, come to church this week! It was such a miracle! He loved church and by a tender mercy of God, he already knew people at church and it made it so awesome. He is getting baptized on July 9th as well!!!
So it was awesome because there was this HUGE carnival thing here with rides and booths and food. And the church had a booth there! So me and Sister Kastner made a board explaining the Plan of Salvation and we just talked to everyone at this crazy place. It was PACKED but it was so fun. We got to talk to so many people and found some new people to teach! It was super great.
My favorite quote of the week: "To those within the sound of my voice who are struggling with difficulties large and small, prayer is the provider of spiritual strength; it is the passport to peace. Miracles are wrought through prayer." -Thomas S. Monson.

Hope y'all have a great week!
I love you!
