Our investigators came to church and we finally got a translator so we can teach Valentina. She's such a sweet lady. She grew up in Communist Russia and she ranted for a really long time about how awful it was. She loves Christ though and she told us that she would read the pamphlets that we got her in Russian. So we really hope she likes what she reads. We are going to start meeting with her regularly on Sundays and will answer any questions that she has from reading the pamphlets. I really hope she accepts the gospel message. She prays every night that God will just take her home and I am hoping that the gospel will show her that she still has a purpose here is life.
We are still trying to get Steve to recognize the spirit and it is a slow process, but, we hit hard on the spirit and it is a slow process, but, we hit hard on the spirit every week. He seemed super happy when he came to church this week, but he left right after sacrament meeting. We might do the living Christmas card with him. The living Christmas Card is where we get names from the ward council of people to visit. We then show up in the evening and sing silent night. Then we ask if we can take 10 minutes to read the Christmas story with the family and share a Christmas message. Then we invite them to Church and leave a blessing on the home. Short and sweet. It's pretty fun.
Anyway, I'm going to cut things short. Love you all! I hope you have a great week!
