Words from Sister Brittany Platt in Colorado

Olo everybody!

I hope you all had a wonderful week! Last week was a bit crazy, but good! We had like four super long meetings, plus my visit to the hospital for a HIDA scan, plus my comp getting sick and us staying in for half a day. But, there were also some funny things and great things too. :)

We're still teaching Ranjeeta and she's doing well! She won't accept a baptismal date until she comes to church and she still hasn't come! Work keeps getting in the way. BUT, we have a plan. Her boss referred her to us, so we're gunna call him and ask him if he can make it happen where she doesn't have to do work on Sunday so she can come. Hopefully that will help! We're also teaching a 9-year old named Ellie and that's coming along great. She has a baptismal date, but she's not ready and she hasn't come to church enough times, so we're pushing her date back. It's a miracle, though, that we're even teaching her and that they did come to church once (it's been 3 years). We also taught Sophia this week and she told us she doesn't want to get baptized until she's older (her dad's influence) so we told her we couldn't teach her anymore and she got really sad! She did come to church on Sunday with her aunt Kirsten, so hopefully that will continue to help her. She's a wonderful girl, and I believe one day she'll get baptized and so will her mother. I think we met her for the purpose of meeting Kirsten and getting her baptized. It's crazy how the Lord works! And Kirsten is doing great! We're going to the temple this Friday with her so she can get her husband's baptism done. It will be a wonderful experience!

We need more investigators to teach so we're praying hard for a family and we've got a lot of finding planned this week. This is the last week of the transfer and I can't believe how fast it's gone by! Our transfer days have now changed to Wednesday and we'll find out next Monday where we're going. It's going to be different but good.

Funny story this week: we knocked on a less-active's door and she told us that she would never come back to the church until a black lesbian bishop knocked on her door. It took us a bit by surprise and I almost said "well, guess you'll never come back then." But, luckily the Spirit kept my mouth shut and we were very nice to her! I'm grateful that the Spirit is the one that does the work and when we listen to it, we keep ourselves out of trouble! It was a good lesson to learn.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful week and that it's filled with missionary experiences! Love you all and God bless you!

Love, Sister Platt
