Oh man this last week was so good! We had 20 lessons! Wohoo! Last Monday for P-Day we went to the Rec Center and played sports. It was super packed because of the holiday. We had some good games going on with other people. For dinner we went to an American's house. We usually don't eat with people on P-Day but they invited us to eat with them. We ended up tracting that night.

Tuesday we had a lesson with someone that I have not taught yet since I have been in Heber. We have to have another female go with us because two brothers live there together. They seemed interested but weren't home when we had a return appointment a few days later. We also taught Maria de Jesus, Ricardo and a girl named Jenny that we started teaching again. It was a pretty good day. We had 4 lessons and then went tracting.

Wednesday was kind of a slow day. We did a lot of tracting. We ended up having 2 lessons. One with Claudia and the girls. We taught a lesson then painted rocks to help them remember to pray. Hopefully it works :) We also taught a new investigator Angelica. Angelica has 2 boys and is interested but we can only teach a little bit at a time. Our other appointments that we had canceled.

Thursday was a busy day! We taught 7 lessons today. We played a prophets game with Maria and her grandson. It was fun. We are trying to get the boys more involved and trying to get them to go to church. The dad doesn't go to church because the boys don't go which means Maria doesn't go unless she has a ride from someone else. We also taught Jenny again. We taught Ricardo and played Sabbath Day Jenga with him. We created it to help explain good and bad things to do on the Sabbath. We also taught Marisela. She told us that she wants to get baptized but wants to get baptized with her husband which will be a long time. We are hoping that she will do it without him. Her son can baptize her in a couple of weeks. We also taught the Aguayo's. The last couple weeks they have canceled on us so it was good to get in and teach them again. We also taught a few other people.

Friday we had 2 lessons and planned. We taught Marisela and someone else. I can't remember who but we had 2 lessons. Friday night we had dinner with the Riveras. The elders ate their with us as well. It was a pretty good day. We fiound out that Salvador and his family are moving to Midway. They will still be in my area so we can still teach him :)

Saturday we had 3 lessons and a wedding. Wohoo! We taught Maria de Jesus and talked about the Sabbath day with her. We also taught Kenya a little bit. She is a very hard one to get a hold of. She just graduated H.S. and is starting to work full time. We also stopped by to see Claudia and the girls and invited them to the wedding. We went to the wedding to help set up at like 5. The wedding for Salvador and his wife was supposed to start at 7. They didn't get there until 7:30 or a little bit before. Welcome to hispanic time. Take Mormon standard time and add time to that and you have hispanic time. The wedding was really good. There was a lot of people there. We have one roadblock down for his baptism now are trying to get a few more done. We also got transfer calls today. We found out that we are both staying together in Heber for another 6 weeks. I was kind of disappointed at first but am excited about it. The last couple weeks have been pretty good.

Sunday we had 2 lessons. We also went and taught YW in an English ward. It was on missionary work. It was really fun. It has been a long time since I have been in YW. We taught Lupe as well as Maria and Yareli.

Monday was a busy day. I tried emailing when we usually do but the internet was down. So you are getting an email today. For P-Day we went and hiked the Timpanogos Caves. It was a lot of fun. The hike was 1.5 miles with a 1,000ish feet increase. It was gorgeous! I thought I was going to die going up on the hike but thanks to some of the elders who grabbed sticks and pulled me up the mountain. It was quite entertaining. It was such a steep hike and the altitude was awful. But it was worth it. We toured 3 caves and had a blast! I would totally do it again but get into a lot better shape! Monday night we had a branch FHE. It was good. We watched a movie and played charades. No one was there but 2 families. It was really good.

I hope that you are all doing well. I love you all and am so grateful for each of you! I love you and miss you! Have a great week. I will talk to you all on Monday.

Love, Kelcie
