This week has been kinda crazy., we were doing service at Whispering Chase and received news that our new investigator's (Jodi) neice passed away. We were like, "not again!". Bah. So we got to her house and bless her heart....it doesn't get easier seeing people so sad. She was just sobbing and we held her. When she could finally speak, she just said desperately, "I just need to know she is okay and I'll see her again". It broke my heart. Mostly because so many people don't have the knowledge we do. We calmed her down and shared part of the Plan of Salvation with her. It eased her mind a lot. We've been really trying to be strong for everyone around us (3 investigators in mourning right now). It's kinda wearing us down a bit, but we know we are the ones that need to help them, so we're doing our best.night to night we were on exchanges! I'm not the biggest fan of them haha. But it's been fun. When I was in another area, the sister and I went tracting and got like 30 doors slammed in our face. It was THE BEST THING EVER. Ha. But we did place a Book of Mormon to an agnostic, so that was pretty cool!we had dinner with miss Katie Bailey! I FREAKING LOVE THAT WOMAN. Seriously. Just thought I'd throw that in there.Anywayyy,we visited with Angela and her son Michael. Angela is from Mexico! So guess who has been LOVING speaking Spanish? Me. Haha it's so nice to use my language! We have such fun conversations. They go to the base here to the like, thrift store or something every few days and gave us SO many clothes. It was awesome., Zach came to church again! He hasn't missed one yet. I'm so proud of him. We had dinner with the Bowlers last night, too. And they invited him to come! So it was so fun just talking and we laughed about SO much stuff hahaha. It was awesome. His little girl, Taylor, and their little girls were all singing Frozen songs and dancing around in their dresses. It was the most adorable thing ever. I filmed some of it. Haha.Also, sincewas Fast & Testimony in Sacrament. I had this really strange feeling that I should bear my testimony in Spanish. We're in an English ward. Haha weirdness. Anyway, I told Sister Fillmore and she went up before me and was just like, "And now my companion is going to bear her testimony in Spanish...so if you don't understand her, that's why." And everyone laughed and I was like "OKAY, so I was sitting there and had the weirdest feeling to do it in Spanish! And then I just thought about how amazing our church is that you can go absolutely ANYWHERE in the world and the church is 100% the same. If that isn't a sign of the true church of Christ, I don't know what is." And then I proceeded to bear my testimony in Espanol! Legit. It was so cool!

She would love some mail!Hi Everyone!I hope you all had a great week and weekend! We did SO much service at Whispering Chase. Bless them, they really rely on us for help! I am loving it. Maybe I'll be an event planner or something someday. ;)We had a little lesson with Zach. It was kinda last minute, but I really wanted to take the kids a little Easter basket. We got Taylor some cute fairy wings and some candy and such. When we walked in the house, her eyes got so big and she was so excited! Sister Miller (the Primary President in our ward) was already there and she said that the second we walked in and said, "Hi Taylor!" and were talking to her as we came up the stairs, Grayson immediately turned his head towards where the sound was coming from. He knows us. :) I love this family! They went up to Torrington for the weekend to be with family, so I'm sure they had fun!We had a fun Easter weekend! The Green's spoil us so much! And got us little Easter baskets. We had an egg hunt, too. It was so fun! Two women in their 20's and two teenagers going crazy looking for eggs. Hahahaha! It was so fun. :) We took lots of pictures, too! I think Hannah will post them on Facebook soon. So you can see them! Hannah and Sister Fillmore sang a duet in sacrament meeting and it was beautiful!After church, we went to Whispering Chase to visit a couple lovely old women who don't have family around. It's a big perk to do service there because we get to know the residents so well. One of the ladies we visited is a member, we took her a little Easter gift and had a great chat. She is so cute! We also visited another lady that could be on the verge of going to a nursing home. She is so sweet and Sister Fillmore and I just love her. I told her we would come visit, and when we did, she was SO happy. She's a little slow in response when we talk to her, but the smile on her face was incredible to see when we walked in her apartment. :) We eat lunch with her a lot too since no one usually sits with her. I love her!Anyway, that's really I have for now. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!! Remember the Savior and all he has done for us."He lives! All glory to His name! He lives! My Savior still the same! Oh, sweet, the joy this sentence gives. I know that my Redeemer lives!"I'm sure this has spread like wildfire, but if you haven't seen it--watch this video!!Because of Him
