Twyla, Terry and goodbye to Ray.

(From Ann's blog) What a treat we had this morning.  We got to sit with an angel friend, Twyla, who won’t be here too much longer.  Her dear friend and care giver is being taught by the APs and wanted to go to church for her first time this morning.  We went over to sit with Twyla for a few hours so that could happen.  It was like being with an angel.  We loved every moment with her.  Ann

 Hey Mom!

This past week has been incredible! It's been eventful, miraculous and many other things. Let's just say Elder Carter and I have been trying to be master planners and we may have mastered it this week. Just kidding. We have so much to learn. 

We were able to plan for the upcoming 6 weeks and it was kind of weird. Everything that was happening was happening after I get transferred into the land of eternal p-days. Other than that It's been so great!

On Tuesday this week we met Terry Smith. A 60 year old lady that has been taking care of a member named Twila Shuler. Twila has been diagnosed with cancer and has been bed ridden. Terry currently lives in Montana but came down to Yakima so that she would be able to take care of Twila. Terry is married to a less active member of the church and has actually had the missionaries over in the past but never had the chance to accept the gospel. As she has been here taking care of Twila she was reintroduced to this glorious gospel message as the member Twila clings to what she believes at this specific time. After the course of a couple months Twila, the member, says that she will stay alive until Terry accepts the gospel. Shortly after, we were invited over to teach her. As we got to know her we couldn't help but notice how prepared she was. She had been waiting for her husband to become active and take her back to church but she can't wait any longer. We obviously invited her to be baptized and then set the date for December 12th. So for the next couple of weeks leading up to that point are the busiest weeks of our lives. Well of the lives of the new Assistants haha. It will all work out though. 

Just a Quick update on this week! Sorry We have to get running. I will email next week! have a great week! The picture below is of Ray and I when we said goodbye today. He is the man! It's sad to leave!
