Trying to be like Jesus

the weather is so beautiful here in Roanoke Virginia. We are so blessed to have a wonderful place to serve. We spent Saturday with Homer. hes so funny and a great member missionary. he picked us up that morning, and took us home at night! We had a great start to the day by helping with the ward easter egg hunt. yeah you read it right, we had it this past Saturday, it rained when it was originally supposed to be but had to reschedule. we had a busy Saturday teaching. i love being busy teaching. 
we also got to have dinner down town with the assistants to the president. they were passing through and asked if we wanted to join them! theyre fun guys, always making ya smile or laugh. We had such a beautiful Sunday! Manny and his wife and kids came to church!!! it was such a blessing and miracle to have them. they were worried that their children would be disruptive. we told them how its a family congregation and that there were many other kids trying to keep their kids reverent.   a never have i been so grateful for noisy kids at church! haha Sheila gave us some fruit snacks cuz we were all hungry haha! We got to meet with the Crotts. The first councilor in the stake presidency, and his wife joined us. they are one of thr many people we love to go see. they treat us like family. we taught about the authority to baptize. it went so well and was directed by the spirit! i love it! the real teacher is the spirit in all we do 
Shout out to my baby sister for going to get baptized this weekend!! im so excited for her! so many good things are going on here! i love serving in Roanoke with Elder Lopez! 
i was listening to this song and it really brings the spirit in a awesome way. it makes me think of how im trying to be like Jesus, wearing His name over my heart and sharing those things about Him that are near and dear to my heart. please have a good week! love yall!
