My First Baptismal Challenge
This has been a pretty exciting week! We finally got a baptismal date with our investigator, Anna!! It was such a fun experience because it was the last lesson that Sister Fronk and I got to teach together!! I have to admit that I was so scared to invite her to be baptized even though we were almost positive that she was going to say yes! And it was such a cool experience to see how excited she is to be baptized and how she feels like this church is true! She is absolutely wonderful and we are so excited for her!
I have to also write about how great of a companion Sister Fronk was! She is absolutely one of the most amazing people that I have ever met! She loves everyone and takes care of everyone and helped me personally through so many hard times and I am so grateful for her! She is SO much fun and absolutely hilarious and could make me laugh in moments when I thought it wouldn't be possible to laugh! She is also one of the most forgetful people I have ever met and would forget things everywhere! The last night I was with her we got to pull an all nighter for her doctor appointment the next day! Talk about fun! But before that we had a little disagreement on which day the appointment was on. I was sure it was Wednesday and she was positive it was Tuesday! So we went with Tuesday, stayed up all night, and missed our district meeting just to find out that it was actually on Wednesday! hahaha It honestly was the cherry on top of the cake with all the crazy experiences I had with Sister Fronk! Luckily, because of that we did get to go to the temple after district meeting and get pictures with people in our district before we all headed off to where ever we were going! But anyway, I love Sister Fronk! Best Companion Ever!!!

The rest of the week went really pretty well, even though we had to do a lot of tracting, which I will admit is not my favorite way of finding people, but it all worked out and we ended up finding 3 new investigators this week! One was super confusing. At first she told us that she was absolutely not interested, but after my companion jumped in and testified a little bit and talked to her all about prayer and asked if we could come back and talk to her more about prayer, she said yes! And we set up a time and exchanged numbers and everything! So we are excited to see how that lesson this week goes! We also had a cool experience where we were 5 minutes early to a lesson and so we had a few minutes to tract. We prayed about where we should go and felt really good about this one door that we saw. It ended up being a Chinese couple that was Christian... rare to find one of those... and they were all for hearing more about the church! It was really amazing!
Teaching Agency with Chocolate
Sunday was also a really fun day at church! We got to teach the Primary all about agency, which I have to say was the funnest thing ever! We started by doing a couple of games and one was giving them chocolate and giving them the choice of whether or not to eat it and if they didn't eat it then they got more at the end of the lesson. We also played a game where we would blind fold one of the kids and they would have to follow one of our voices while everyone else was trying to make them lose their way. It was really fun and we got to relate that to how we are going to have a lot of choices to make but that our Heavenly Father is there to guide us to help us make right choices and when we make right choices we get blessings for it! It was so much fun and the kids loved it!
Well, Thank you for all your love and support! Kirkko on Totta!
