Well, this week has been a roller coaster ride of emotions

This week we have been working with a family, los Pineda, who the ward has been pushing and pushing so hard to be baptized but the mom is pushing back just as hard. The father desires and is ready for baptism but we are trying to find the balance of helping both of them according to their needs. Our flexible decision currently is to invite both to be baptized, but make it clear that they do not have to be baptized together if the mom is not ready, and then continue to teach the children and read with the mom for as long as necessary.

We also made a hard decision to drop los ninos, because they have received the whole first three lessons (broken into very small chunks) and their mothers will not take them to church. We will still occasionally visit, but it is what is right for our area.

I also had a visit from my Mission President this week. He told me that my father was in the hospital. That was a shock. He had had a major surgery and is currently in recovery.

And we had transfer calls. Hermana Johnson and I are staying here and Hermana Phillipy is going with Hermana Reed to open a Spanish area in North Carolina. It's going to stretch us a lot, me with only a transfer of Spanish, and Hermana Johnson with only 3.

It's been a week of significant decisions and choosing to be happy no matter what happens.

But do you know what? It will be alright in the end.
Because He Lives.
Jesus Christ lived. He walked the Holy Land, working miracles and teaching truth. Then He was crucified. But His death was not the end. Because of His Resurrection, we will live again. Because of His sacrifice, we can rise above sin to experience true joy. Because He lives, we can find His help
and healing every day of our lives.

I want to invite each and everyone one of you to go to the church website
Watch the video. Share it. Bear your testimony.

"And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of Him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of Him: That He lives!  For we saw Him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that He is the Only Begotten of the Father—
That by Him, and through Him, and of Him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God." -D&C 76:22-24

We are sons and daughters of God. And because Jesus Christ lives, so will we! And right now, we live for Him. I love you all so much and want you to know that. I pray for many of you by name. Remember that He is our Savior, our Redeemer, and most importantly our Hope in this life and Eternal Happiness in the world to come.

Don't forget it.

Con Amor,
Hermana Fletcher
