We had an incredible experience last Monday. One of our investigators, Pearl, has been severely depressed for a few years after losing her husband, and she liked us to come over just to talk, but she wasn't too interested in the gospel. We felt impressed to offer her a priesthood blessing, so on Monday, our zone leaders came with us and gave her a blessing and the spirit was so strong! She said she felt at peace and could feel herself getting happy again. And she practically asked if she could come to church with us. She came yesterday and loved it, and now she's really excited about learning more! She says she knows it is the gospel that will help her see her husband again and find joy in this life. We love Pearl so much!

On Thursday, we felt like we needed to stop by a family in our ward's house just to say hi and see how they're doing, even though they're fully active. So we did, and let me tell you, that was where we needed to be. She's been stressed for a long time, and we were able to help clean and de-clutter and organize some of her house with her so the spirit could be in their home more fully. We were there for 2 and a half hours and she was so thankful afterwards. It was such a great service opportunity!

Church was great on Sunday! The talks and lessons were great, and perfect for Pearl! She really seemed to enjoy it! After church, we had a meeting with our bishop, so we had to wait for a while. It was the time one of the wards after us started coming in, and I got to see the Duces!! One of our favorite families from Marysville :)
 I heard news that on Saturday, Will from Port Gardner got baptized!!! When I was there, he wanted it so bad, but they had to wait for Anjie's divorce to go through so they could be married so he could be baptized. And now they are married and he is baptized! Makes me so happy and I can't wait to see them again someday!

And as of today, Sister Wikstrom is officially on the plane, heading back home to Utah. We really did need some Sister Training Leader help Saturday night, so we called them asked our questions, and got to say goodbye. She will do great things and I'm so excited for all that life has in store for her!

It is a good life being a missionary!
