Driving Miss Gloria

Last week we went to Zone Conference.  We learned about finding people to teach. 

Recently our zone and district have been divided.
This last week we did yard work for a part-member family, and made visits.
We started teaching family history classes last Sunday.  There is a new booklet from the church that we are using for beginners.  Last week we helped one member start to work on his family history.  His non-member companion asked us to help her with her family history too.  Her attitude towards the church has become more positive.  We will do what we can to help her.
Elder Jenkins has sent a proposal to the stake to see if we can get a couple of computers for family history into our building (satellite from the stake family history center).  It would make it easier for those who don't have cars or internet service to be able to work on their family history.
Today we drove Gloria to her pre-op appointment at the hospital.  Her surgery has been rescheduled for November 12th.  Once she gets healed up from the surgery she should be able to attend church again.  She claims to be the only person who has survived an intestinal aneurism.  She is so funny and keeps us laughing.  She told the nurse that if she needs a transfusion, she only wants blood from rich people.  She wants the nurse to get Donald Trump down here to give blood.  And if they needed a list of rich people they could call to donate blood, she could provide such a list.  She also told the nurse that when people call the hospital to ask about her condition after the surgery that she wants the nurses to tell them that she has been transferred to Spain.   
Saturday, C.J. was baptized and Sunday was confirmed.

It has been great having Elder Alvarenga here (waiting for his visa to Sao Paulo, Brazil).  He has really been a big help to those who speak Spanish or Portuguese.

We have a fresh "move in" list with 21 names on it - for us to check out and see if they actually live here.  If they live here, we welcome them into the ward and invite them to church.
