Howdy y'all! Doesn't Grace Baptist have the best signs?
Tuesday we went to the CADC and walked around the town a lot. No one was home, but we got in contact with the Hearns again! They were super sick though. We also got a hold of an inactive member, Sonja Kelly, and we started teaching her husband, Jerry! We just answered a few of his questions and he loves us! It was a wonderful visit! We walked home (we didn't see Shiloh...we were in the same trailer park) and had dinner. Brother Rubly then came over and we gave him a ride to see Sister Myrick. We helped her put in some light bulbs and left a message and went home.
Wednesday we got to see Fran again! We got everything sorted out to where we will teach her, but when she is baptized, she will attend the Hot Springs ward and be fellowshipped here by members and missionaries. Anyways, we taught her the plan of salvation and she loved it! Sister Crow was amazing with her testimony and words as well! Fran is fasting to quit coffee and is progressing beautifully! We visited sister Jacobs. Since Brother Jacobs passed away last week, she's been having it rough, but she was happy with us there. She again told us she didn't want us to leave. We left a thought on the spirit world and offered any assistance. We saw Sister Hill again and read with her. Sister Crow bought us some good pizza afterwards. We went to young men's and had a game night. Might I say I'm a pro at charades.

Friday we went out with Sister Crow again. We went to Brother Jacobs funeral and had another wonderful lesson with Fran. We taught the Restoration with a more interactive twist. I did this a ton in Memphis and haven't really done it since (Shout out to Elder York). I drew a church on a piece of paper and told her to blow on it. It of course blew away. So I put a bible in top of it and told her to blow it again. Didn't go no where. So I explained that's a church without the priesthood and prophets and apostles. Without those, it cannot be the true church. As said in Ephesians 2:19-20 and 4:11-14. To backup those, we go with Amos 3:7 and Hebrews 13:8 to show Gods pattern of prophets. Anyways, we all grabbed the paper and ripped it. After Christ and his apostles were killed or exiled, the church crumbled due to doctrines of man and loss of priesthood. So now there's a bunch of churches with different doctrines. We then explained the restoration and calling of Jospeh Smith and it was powerful! She wanted to keep the paper with the church on it! Haha. After Sister Crow again bore testimony, she brought the spirit in so much and Fran was in tears. She asked us for a blessing for some medical issues going on. I don't think I've given a more spirit led blessing than that. She told us that she felt immediate relief and was so grateful. After seeing her, we saw Sister O'Neal. Let me tell you, besides my grandmothers, I have never met a more funny woman! She has stories upon stories upon stories that make you laugh til you cry! Sister Crow took us home and we got ribs and enjoyed the night in peace.

It was a great week with so many miracles! So far Fran is praying over a baptismal date! Hopefully she will feel the sprit enough to want to do it soon! I love y'all!
