The week has flown by with many crazy events and miracles. Monica's baptism is scheduled for this Saturday still. Her children CJ and Desia are so excited for it. They truly do love learning and are soaking it up. We had a family home evening with her and some members. We had to pull out some creative skills to teach the Word of Wisdom to the kids but with Heavenly Fathers help some colored drawings, a couple paper bags and candy we made it. Artist extraordinaire Sister Weeks and Sister Andrus.
A precious story for the week. Both CJ and Desia (Monica's kids) have really bad burns and Monica said that last year in July that one of their neighbors threw a spray can in the fire and it exploded and Desia who is 8 went to get her bike and just got caught in the fire and was getting burned so CJ who is 10 jumped in there and pulled her out. Amazing. What a great older brother. She was in a coma for 3 weeks and they were both in the Hospital for a little over 2 months. I can't believe it. It is a miracle and they are both still the cutest. They are so excited to get baptized. The week before a baptism is always super crazy to so buckle up for the ride. Satan is against it all and tries to make everything hard. Sister Andrus and I were talking and there is a part on Anastasia where she is stepping on the glass vial and saying this is for me and this is for.... Well Sister Andrus said that is what she wants to do to Satan in the next life. "This is for the hard times you gave to this person for the anti you let this person get a hold of and so on" haha. It's happening.
Well, it truly was a crazy week and I am steeling myself for another one. Thanks for all your prayers. You are in mine. The gospel is true and we are truly blessed.
Love you bye!
Love Sister Weeks (Rachel)
