   Deep Dish Finish

   Cruz(in) Move in

So the Whitehead family was found by knocking doors. We met Sister Whitehead and she was super excited to hear our message and gave a copy of the Book of Mormon to her mom and her mom (in 4 days) read the first 200 pages of the book so... Let's just say she was very interested in our message. Sister Whitehead, her mom, and her three kids (Alea, Tydarious, and Lamaria) all have the desire to be baptized!!! The sad thing is they were not able to come to church this week... When we taught them though, Sister Whitehead was telling us that long questions she had been wondering about were answered and she felt that God had sent us to be a part off their family. That was super nice to hear! So keep them in your prayers my home-dogs back in the non-Lawrenceville area.

We had dinner at the Dilworth household and (per the usual) we had food that they were all super happy there was no leftovers. What can I say, when people make pasta with meat and ricotta cheese bake.... I just gotta have it all! Also, Dorothy has had several dreams about being baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints... She just won't do it!!! Gahhhhh!!!! That is my main frustration at this point in time.

We saw Jeff (on one of those crazy random happenstance kinda days) and talked with him for a "good minute" and he asked for a blessing because of all the stress he was having. He said that he felt something powerful and it was from God and he also said that "I might have to break out my church tie sooner than I thought". We both got a chuckle out of that. We saw him today with Brother Lewis and had a great brief conversation about       .

My companion and I felt super impressed that we were able to eat the entire deep dish 18" pizza which no missionary (according to the branch president) had never been able to finish in one sitting. We did a lot of finding and helped the Cruz family move in their last truck (which had at least 3million sports cards).
