Rancho Cucamonga, California -November 25, 2013

Hey Family,

Well it just so happens that the Chamberlins are getting baptized on the 14th of December.  We have reserved the building and are working on getting their clothes.  For the last four weeks we haven't had a ward mission leader (ours got taken to be the bishop in the ysa ward) and planning a baptism without one is quite difficult.  Normally they help with most of it.  So we haven't known who to contact or anything.  Luckily we are baptizing kids, and so we have enlisted our primary president.  She has helped us out loads.  She has giving us all the numbers we need and told us what to do.  So we are getting that all worked out.  Isabella and Bianca will be baptized for sure.  We are still working with Erika.  We are hoping she will get baptized with them.  I think she wants to, but it is just not set in stone yet.

We haven't started working with the Baros yet, but this week....hopefully

Then we have the Verons.  The dad is ex-communicated.  The mom is not a member and they have at least three kids.  The dad has wanted to come back for a while, but they haven't been married so it hasn't happened it.  The Elders have been working with them for a while now.  They came to church yesterday!! On their own!! They have plans for December 30th to get married.  They have reserved a place and everything.  So once that happens, then they can all get baptized.  We are excited for that!

We also got a new investigator this week.  Her name is Jessica.  She is black.  Her brother lives in texas and recently got baptized.  He changed his whole life around and wanted the same for her.  He called Jessica and asked if it would be okay if he sent the missionaries to her.  So he did.  We went over.  She has a five year old son and says that if this church helped her brother out so much, she was interested in it.  She says she also has a friend that she wants us to meet with.  So we are hoping for that soon too. 

Other then that, not much is happening.  We are working on finding and working with less actives.  We have the living nativity coming up.  It is supposed to be really cool.  We have live actors and they recreate a street in Bethlehem.  They actors walk around and you can go and talk to them.  Then every 45 minutes they act out Jesus's birth.  We  are really excited.  We told Jessica about it and she was so happy and wants to bring her son!! So yay!!

We went on a hike as a district today.  I am SO out of shape it is not even funny.  I am going to be so sore.  It was a pretty hike though.  We hiked to a water fall.  Those are always nice. 

Well that is about all I have to say this week.  I hope you all have a great thanksgiving.  I am going to a lady in the wards house.  She never got married, but was a social worker and ended up adopting 7 kids.  She is amazing and an inspiration!! We are excited to eat with her.

Well now that I have given a really long email, I hope you have a good week and a good thanksgiving. tell all the family hi for me.

Love you all
Sister Woodward
