50th week in Spokane

"Serve with all your heart might mind and strength" We certainly
magnified this portion of our calling this week! We did so much
service its ridiculous! We laid a hard wood floor, we painted, we
helped some one move, and we cut down and cut up a tree! I have
definitely been able to use my own gifts to help out others so its
been good, I love doing service, we're always looking for some to do.
Not only does it give us a chance to wear something other than a shirt and tie but it of course makes us feel good to know we helped someone out. When you're in the service of your fellow beings you're only in the service of your God, right? Right. So cutting down the tree was pretty fun, we did it for Jessica because they depend on firewood for heat since they live clear in the boonies and have no electricity or
running water. However, both her parents have gotten injured and can't do anything to help with the firewood so we decided to go up there and help em out a bit. We were exhausted by the end of the day because that morning we helped someone move. Another fun thing about that day is see, Wenatchee is just this big valley in the middle of no where so we gotta drive up the mountain to get out. so coming back its all downhill and this road is especially steep! So.. We rode our bikes back down it! It was cool because it was dark so Jared, our recent convert, drove right behind us and had his lights on haha he said that our top speed was right around 50!! Speaking of Jessica, she is doing really good, we were able to teach a way good lesson with her and we also taught her about the Sabbath Day, we invited her to ask work off for every Sunday and she was really scared to because she barely has any hours as it is and she needs money for school but she said she would because she said if shes gonna jump into this shes gonna do it one hundred percent. She's solid. She asked work off and got it off and is getting baptized September 17! We are excited about that! Well, thanks for everything you do I love and miss you all!
