Weekly Email - June 6th - Summer!!

Hey everybody!

Summer is here & it's so hot up here in California! But I'm super
blessed not to be on full time bike right now sooo I can't even

This week has been real good! We were able to have some incredible
lessons. We met with a part member family this week-the Linns. I guess
they're always super busy & missionaries have been trying to meet with
them for a while & we finally caught them. We sat down & talked to
them about how God is our loving Heavenly Father & the spirit was so
strong in their home. We asked the dad (the member) why he hadn't been
to church in ages because his whole extended family is still real
active & he just said he hasn't been in so long that he's scared to go
back. That is a huge thing I've learned on my mission-so many less
actives are honestly just scared to go back to church! It's our
responsibility as members to reach out to these people. I also have
the biggest testimony of the importance of visiting & home teaching.
Even if the people who you are assigned to visit/home teach don't want
you going you should still go!!! Or reach out to them somehow. & not
to just check it off your list, but because you love your Heavenly
Father & His children.

Our investigator Jana made it to church for the first time this week!!
Ah we were so happy:) she was so nervous, but she loved it! She's on
date to be baptized in August, which sounds like forever away but hey
I'm not complaining :)

Things are going well here! I hope you're all doing well & are making
good choices!

Also shout out to Bonnie for getting married!!

Love you all!

Love always,
Sister Sobotka
