Mom has taken over but just moved to Oregon so lets start again with the last of the last letter and then 2 - 3 to follow

always makes my day.  There is no way we could ever starve here with all the members do.  The members are also really great when it comes to missionary work.  Everyone we talk to has someone we should go see.  A lot of the time the members will just set up times that we can teach lessons.  They always help us get out foot in the door.  I think that has helped so much.  The people feel so much more comfortable and are more willing to listen.  I can tell the Lord has truly been preparing people for us to come and teach them.  I have already seen so many miracles, mostly it is being in the right place at the right time.  Then we just let the spirit take over.  It is such a great feeling when that happens.  The Lord is truly guiding your words and thoughts.  We are teaching a couple right now that has truly been prepared.  The wife was baptized just before we got here and we are working with the husband.  They are an older couple in their late60's early 70's.  Their son and daughter-in-law had recently converted.  They came here on vacation to visit their son and daughter-in-law and the woman wanted to be baptized so the missionaries sent her off with some pamplets and when she came back to move here she was baptized.  Her husband has been stubborn but I think it's harder for him to be that way with sisters.  I know he will get baptized.  It's just a matter of when.  I really have grown to love the people in our area so much. 

When we first got here everyone was so willing to help our house we lived in was terriable, or I thought it was.  I'm sure one time it was a wonderful place to live but now it is old and has mold and is a little dirty from having elders in it for the last five years so the housing coordinators told us if they found some where else to live then they would move us.  The stake worked so hard to find us a new place for us.  We ended up getting the cutest log cabin.  The owners had just barely redone everything so it seems brand new.  We Love it!!! It is so cute and the stake presidents wife has helped a ton.  She brought over tns of stuff to donate.  She's making us drapes, table cloth, plus she is constantly bringing us food.  i feel truly blessed by so many of the members.  The stake president and his wife have been the best.  The Lord has truly blessed me.  There is so much more I could say but I really don't have time.  I love y'all and miss you!    Love, Sister O
