Hello every one! Happy Pi day! Hope it's the best one yet.
We are working with this one family who are super cool. Their name is the family Espinosa. We had a few lessons with them last week, and they committed to coming to church. When they didn't actually come, we knew we had to try and help them understand the importance of why they need to come to church. We had a lesson with them again last night, and we had 2 members from the ward with us. It was an Hermana and her son. The Hermana was really trying to help Momma Espinosa, and really trying to reach out to be her friend. She invited her to a Relief Society activity this weekend and even offered to pick her up. After doing so, we asking the son, what they were doing for Young Mens this week, and then he offered to pick up the son to take him bowling with all the boys. The Espinosas really opened up, and both accepted the offer! I know that they will now feel more comfortable to come to church, and the help of the members was more than we could've done ourselves! I am so grateful that every member is truly a missionary, and that we are all working together to further the Lord's work.
There are a lot a lot of members in this ward that I am serving in, but not a lot of the list actually go to church. So the ward is doing a Ward Rescue. Every Wednesday night, a group gets together, and we go and visit a whole bunch of less active members, to see if they still even live there. It's a really cool idea! This week, we were sad to find out that some of the members had moved, but we were able to find a family who is willing to listen in the same house! It's a really cool little idea, and it's a great way to strengthen the Lord's kingdom here on the earth. I want to find everyone and invite the all back to church! A less active that we have been visiting, who hasn't been to church in months, came yesterday. It's so great seeing those who have already made covenants and promises with God, start the process of renewing them weekly.
Here's a scripture that talks about the scriptures that I really like.
4 For, for this intent have we written these things, that they may know that we knew of Christ, and we had a hope of his glory many hundred years before his coming; and not only we ourselves had a hope of his glory, but also all the holy prophets which were before us.
The life of Christ was prophesied many years before he came, and the same is true with his second coming. Because of the words of the prophets, we have a hope through the glory of Christ. We know that he is the Savior of the World, and that he lives, so we can live with him again.

|It rained, and we were not completely prepared for it. Some people we met on the street were kind and gave us these umbrellas though. We returned them and also gave them some pamphlets.|
