New Beginnings

Hey Family!

How is it going?

It’s been a great week her in Chelan. Yesterday we started having a separate Sacrament Meeting for the Spanish Group, so we were preparing for that this week. We got a list and went around inviting people, members, part member families, investigators and less active members. We got some families and members from the ward to come support. The result: 1 Spanish family came. But they had been less active for a long time! The meeting was awesome. I played the piano, we had a brother from the Ward and Elder Berg administer and pass the sacrament, and most of the adults there got up and bore there testimonies in Spanish, even 1 sister, our WML's wife who hadn't served a Spanish speaking mission bore it in Spanish with the help of her husband. She did really good! 

I bore mine and compared that day to the day of Pentecost. The new beginnings of our Spanish group in Chelan had similar spiritual outpourings with Sister England being able to bear her testimony in Spanish, undoubtedly with help of the gift of tongues.

We had a cool week. we had district meeting with the Brewster elders on Wednesday. We decided to go out to eat at the famous Blueberry Hills restaurant. It was good, famous for their blueberries. I just got waffles and had their blueberry syrup on top. It was delicious. We got to eat with and teach the Fournier Family on Tuesday. Sister Fournier is going to get baptized in the lake this month, so we're excited for that. They are primarily vegetarian so we had some yummy veggie burgers and salad from there garden. It might sound crazy but the stuff is pretty good. Bro. Fournier made some killer vegan asparagus enchiladas the other day, and they were awesome.

Things are sweet here in Chelandy land. Take care folks!
