Dear family! It's been a great week! It's gone by so fast. Time is so weird out here. The coolest thing that happened this week was teaching Joni the restoration and committed her to reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it..she is so nice! Also a cosmetologist! It was so fun and she has a very strong relationship with God. Charles is doing so good! Still trying to quit smoking and drinking coffee! Keep him in your prayers. We had a really good lesson with about satan and how he works which is really interesting to know how he works and how evil and easily he try's to trick us. It was really important for Charles to know how real that is. Satan doesn't like that he is preparing to be baptized. And he doesn't like that we are helping him or anything else that we do. He's a meany head! We also went to the visitors center with charles in Lake Oswego with Merlin and Marie Evans, it was really fun! And so good for everyone. The Portland mission was getting there new mission president which is elder ballards son! So there were no sister missionaries in the visitors center and so sis Farnsworth and I got to be the ones to walk him through all the different displays. It was really cool!! My bday was fun starting out with walking in the morning with Marie and Debbie Evans and they got me a Oregon ducks shirt cause I always wear beavers clothes when we go walking which they don't like haha Had zone training meeting and sis Farnsworth and everyone made it a really good day...lots of yummy treats and food...oh man! Fun memory this week was being in by 9 on the 4th and doing our planning on our balcony/fire escape while we waited for the fireworks to go off! The trees were kinda in the way so we just tried to remember some girls camp song and sang them to Brownsville. It was funny. Well and before we went in we had dinner with Kathy and Gina two la woman in the branch and we had a campfire that we helped build. I was laughing a lot because Gina cracks me up! The fire kept blowing up cause she put rocks under the wood and we couldn't stop laughing so we had our own little firework show! There are some potential families we might teach this week and I'm really excited..so hopefully we can make it happen. It almost happened this week..but work schedules got in the way! Love sister heywood!
