It's cool that Suzie Da Rosa is going to where y'all are too! (The Da Rosa Family is very close to the missionaries in Lexington and I'm always getting texts and pictures from them which is such a blessing! Their daughter Suzie just received her mission call to the Phoenix Mission and we are so excited to support her and help her family in any way we can!) She was actually able to help us teach Logan and Janet last night. We had a lesson with them about a few more things that we wanted to go over, and we had to leave to another appointment so we had her and her family teach the rest of what we wanted to cover. Member work is so much easier haha!
A tender mercy from this week would have to be the fact that Janet still hasn't smoked since she quit! She's been clean for 9 days now. She has been way different since she quit. She's a lot happier and she talks way more than she used to. Janet has always been reserved since I met her and now she talks all the time! It's been great to see the change in her. Logan ad Janet have been working on getting Janet baptized with the ward for 3 or 4 years and now finally we have gotten her to that point. Her baptism will be at 4 on Saturday and we are really excited for it to happen! I think all of the success has been a great mercy during my time in Lexington and I'm grateful I am able to see it all pay off.
I had an asthma attack this week out of nowhere. Elder Smith and I had only biked for 10 miles when I couldn't breathe at all and I had to stop and breathe through it. My lungs were on fire! I talked to the mission doctor and just asked for a prescription for Advair to make sure I am taking something preventative during the Spring here. I bought more Zyrtec and I have been fine since. It was just weird for that to come up randomly like that.
We went fishing behind the Koivu's house earlier today. Here is a photo of what I caught.
Oh, lastly, Elder Smith and I taught Book of Mormon class this week and we had almost 30 people there!!!! It was the best class that we've had yet.
