I forgot my planner, so this is the best you get... (March 28 email)

Happy day after Easter!

I LOVE Easter! We had a couple really nice meetings full of the Spirit & learning about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. 
So get this: this week we tried a potential named Louis. He considers himself more of a Jew than Christian because he's not sure about Jesus Christ. We taught him about the Plan of Salvation & he seemed to really like what we taught. We invited him to come to church on Easter & he said "I'll see what I have going on." which usually means, no thanks. After Sacrament meeting in Mojave Narrows a guy stands up a few pews in front of us & guess who?! LOUIS! He actually came!! & seemed to really enjoy it. We introduced him to Bishop Schaeffer & everyone was really friendly to him :) (Side note: go out of your way to say hi to anyone new you see at church, it could make or break their experience.)

Here is the news about Jane......
She's still amazing. She's so amazing that we moved her baptismal date up a week to April 9th because she is so prepared & really excited & ready for it. 

I went on exchanges with one of my favorite people ever...but I didn't know she was my favorite person because I just met her! Her name is Sister Johnson & this is her first transfer. She's serving in Wrightwood! She came to my area & we had a blast. 
One cool experience we had: We had about 30 minutes before our next lesson & I didn't know what we had planned because I forgot my planner at home, so I just started driving & decided we'd tract a road. I didn't know where I was going though...I just drove until I found a road that looked good. (The hardest part about going on so many exchanges is not knowing where your companion has already tracted.) We got to Tehachapi, which is a road Sister Bergstrom & I were on just the other day, usually you'd think, "oh we were just here, we should probably find a new one" but for some reason it felt good. We tried 2 houses, no one home, not interested. One more before it was time to go. We knocked & a lady & her son came to the door, Genie & Murray. Genie is so sweet & has been to our church before. Murray has a mental disorder & talks a whole lot, but LOVES God. We could barely get a word in, but we asked if there was another time we could come back to teach them more. Murray said "Please mom! Please?" Like I said, we didn't get to talk much, but it seems like they are super prepared. It was amazing to see how the Lord led us there without even knowing it at the time.

That's so awesome you had such a good Easter! Wish I was there :)

Hope you have a wonderful week & I'll "talk" to you again in a short few days!
love you so much!
xoxo Sister Viraldo
