Shhhhh...It's a secret!
Today's letter from Danielle...
she is so happy and is doing really well!!!
I had to laugh when I asked her about the storms in Maryland.
I didn't hear from her on Monday, due to the storm, she remarked that it was a "Sissy-Storm" but everyone closes down when the storms hit...she thinks they are all just a little pathetic about snow and ice.
She must be an Idaho girl!!!
Let's get to Danielle's big news ~
she has been working with a family for quite a long time and here is the secret!!! Drum roll, please....
SISTER SCHNEIDER IS ON DATE FOR !!!
We are so freaking excited for her!
Her husband is a convert of 5 years, but until just recently, she hasn't been interested in taking the discussions.
But she's attended all three hours of church for about 6 months, and has been going to sacrament for a few years; she basically holds a calling as well.
She decided to let Sister Anderson and I start teaching her though, and it's been incredible.
She's grown so much even in just a few weeks.
Two weeks ago we left her with the commitment to pray about a date to be baptized on, and last week she told us that she'd been praying and picked M, but that she still wasn't sure that there was a God, but if she knew He were there, that she'd be baptized on that date... so she swore us to absolute secrecy so that no one, especially her husband, would find out, and set a goal to know by the 22nd.
She has such amazing faith!
Keep Krista Schneider in your prayers!
We're so excited for her!
This week Brother Kincaid passed away.
He's been in the hospital for about a month...
it's been pretty sad watching him go down hill.
Their family was just getting active again when he had the stroke and fell. So we've spent a lot of time with them.
His wife, Nicole, and son, James, asked me to sing at the funeral... it was pretty hard sitting through everyone crying and then get up to sing.
But as soon as the piano started, the chapel just felt so peaceful.
I'm so grateful to know that families can be together forever!
Their next step is being sealed together in the temple. It's so neat to see the strength they've gained from the gospel at this time.
The church is so true!
