She needs God more in her life ...

Not much time, but I'mma just throw it atcha :) Alma is doing fabulous and has a baptismal date for the 31st of February!!!! (editor's note - ???) I LOVE the lessons with her cause the spirit is always like tangible and she's very involved. We saw Amber on Saturday night and had a good chat with her. She's getting caught up in the sad things happening in the news and such and with her friends. We were pretty bold with her and she said she would come to church. we frantically got a ride for her the next morning and when they knocked on her door she was still in bed... We went over last night and had had an epiphony! She had just prayed and started reading the beginning of the BOM and says she needs God more in her life and she wants to start her days off by reading the scriptures. We're gonna meet with her every day for 30 minutes and do a study with her and then weign her off to do it herself. We read Alma 32 with her and it was PERFECT!!! Haha she kept saying, "Oh, that's what I've done, I plucked the tree out and it was actually a good one!". This morning we were supposed to meet with her before emailing, but we haven't heard from her.. Jimmy passed his interview this week and is to the point where he's made up his mind completely to be baptized. Unfortunately he's a little under the weather and that's really not good! He only has one lung and it's hard for him to breathe so if he's not feeling better this week, we'll have to push the baptism back a bit. He came to all of church yesterday and met with the bishop. He's still way positive and hilarious. Please pray for him to be feeling well! We met a man named John at the Chick-fil-a drive through on exchanges a couple weeks ago and invited him to church last week. He couldn't come but agreed to come the next week. We got to meet with him twice this last week only to find out that he lives in another area. BUT he is super solid and has a date. We'll try and get to his baptism in February. Gotta run, yall, but I loves you and thanks so much for keeping in touch!! I'm so blessed with so much support and love. 
I know this gospel is true and that it improves ALL aspects of our lives as we apply it! It fills me with so much joy that I often have to squeel or it'll just make me pop! haha Please keep sharing it with everyone! I think all we said to John at the Chick-fil-a window was that we share a message from God and that it's the happiest message of all time! You never know how far sharing a simple testimony will go :)
