This past week got HOT overnight! I'm sure it's just as hot over there in Utah and Texas though. Well on Thursday we met our new companion, Sister Champlin. She's from Logan, UT and is 19 years old. She's a super hard worker, she ran track (sprints) in HS and loves Harry Potter :) She's really enthustiastic and even though she can't speak the language it doens't stop her from talking! It's been really fun to work with her and realize that I actually have made some progress...even if it's just with time on the mission. I have so much to learn from her though and I honestly feel spoiled, once again, with the people that I get assigned to work with. I'll try and send a picture of us three after this email.
I think the highlight of the week was on Saturday. It was well over 100 degrees but we decided to take the bikes out for 2 hours to give Sister Champlin her first taste of the pink bikes. She was dying after the first hour! But she almost made it back to our apartment. As we were riding into our apt complex we heard a crash and turned around to see Sister Champlin had fallen into a big bush. Poor thing! I guess we did a little too much too soon! I didn't realize how much riding those bikes for the past 12 weeks would pay off.
She really is great though....she's super willing to try anything. She invited 2 people to be baptized her first day her and they were both in Spanish!
Well as for investigators it looks like Amber's son Anthony will be getting baptized without her :( Nothing is for sure yet but that's the way it's looking. She's still making great progress though and has been coming to church faithfully. Maybe this will give her husband a chance to accept the gospel. Keep her in your prayers!
Will came to help some famillies in the ward move so he got to know a lot of other members. One day he'll make it to church!
Well that's it for this week....I hope everyone has a good week! Love you all!
Love, Hermana Billings
