Sister Alex Hartvigsen-- March 13, 2012

Dear Family, this last week has been really good. I have a new companion. Sister S. from Tulsa OK. She is amazing and we are doing really well together. We have had several lessons with the a part member family this week on the importance of prayer and also on the plan of salvation. We have been inviting them to pray about if our message is true for a while but the father seems reluctant. I believe that he is afraid of the answer that he will get and that it will mean some changes in his life. He has made so much progress over the last several months and we will continue to visit his family( his wife is a less active who is coming back to church) but if he doesn't start to progress a little more, we might have to back off for a little while and allow him to progress more on his own. In our singles ward we are working with mainly less actives and activation work. We met with a less active girl and talked to her about goals and how she can use the gospel to reach her potential. She has made so much progress in the last several months and is now working with her bishop to get her temple recommend in the next little while so that she can do baptisms for the dead. We also met with another sister She is struggling with her belief in God and Jesus Christ. We talked to her about the importance of prayer and continued study of the Book of Mormon and invited her to read Mormon 9. We received a text from our district leader this week asking us to go over immediately to talk to a Hispanic man that they had just contacted who was very interested in learning how the Gospel can bless his family. We testified about how we can find answers in the Book of Mormon.
Sister S. brought with her an atomic alarm clock. On Sunday morning we had a correlation meeting at the stake center scheduled at 7am and we were planning on waking up at 5:30 to get out the door on time. Her alarm rang and I checked my watch. 4:30 am....Daylight savings time had started for everywhere but AZ and the clock had switched over automatically. She reset the time and we went back to bed. Yesterday it did the same thing and woke us up at 5:30 thinking it was 6:30. Now we are using my clock and are very aware what of daylight savings time and also a little sleep deprived.
Time is going by so fast. Easter pageant is coming up in 2 weeks and things are going to be so busy and I am really excited. There is so much to do and I am excited for the chance to be a part of it.
I love you all
Have a great week
Love Alex
