Polly is dead

So this week we had a lesson with our Chinese investigator. He finally prayed outloud in front of us! Which is a huuuuuuge step. He didn't believe in God when we first met him, and now he is starting to. It's amazing to see someone's faith strengthen so much in such a short amount of time. 
We had a lesson with the Allison this week. Her husband is a member, and she has taken  the missionary discussions for at least 7 years, but she's never had sister missionaries before! I loved her lesson this week. We just talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is Faith, Repentance, Baptism, The gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the end. The spirit was so strong during the lesson. I loved it! She said that the information we were telling her..that she just didn't get it before, but that she does now. It's amazing how time can soften someone's heart. 
We helped with our investigator's garage sale. They're moving to Georgia. It's so sad that they're moving, but change is needed sometimes! 
We also had a lesson with a less active in our YSA, Young single adult, ward. He got baptized a year ago, and doesn't know much about the gospel, so we're re teaching him the lessons. It's so fun to teach people our own age! 
In Sunday school yesterday at church someone read the quote to us: "as someone has said, if we do not choose the kingdom of God first, it will make little difference in the long run what we have chosen instead of it." 
This world is crazy. It's super fast pace and focusing on how we look, how many material things we have, and how popular we are.  What matters is that we're happy, that we're following Heavenly Father and His teachings, and that we're immersed in the Gospel. 
I'd rather choose Heavenly Father than to choose the world. 

All pictures: we played at top Golf today as a zone, and we played football this morning. 
Cactus Picture: it has nice little fuzzies on it, so it doesn't look scary. BUT it actually is. I touched the little fuzzies, and they all stuck into my hand. Everything in AZ is meant to kill us.
