Hey everyone!!!
So this week has been CRAZY!!! My favorite gator, Katie, has been doing just amazing! She has been through so much, I honestly cannot believe it.. So the other day we were going to have her go talk to our mission president to see if he could even help her.. but that kinda didn't work out too well..
It started off with me and sister Chapa texting president Porter about Katie,and why we think that she should see him. Then he texts us back and basically says, "Of course you can come teach Katie a lesson in our home!" I specifically rememered saying we thought just SHE needed to talk to president! haha. So we text back telling him that that was NOT what we meant.. Forgot what he said back to that.. then we said, "Too intimidating!" Then he says, "I know, but I will be fine!" Our mission President is such a punk!!! Haha. Well basically we got dragged into teaching Katie a lesson in Presidents home! It was sooooo nerve racking! That was on friday..
Well I don't have much time to write today, but it was a really good experience and she is thinking about being baptised May 6th. So cross your fingers, and Pray for her!
Love yas,
Sister Steffani Stokes(:

Part of Email from Grandma and Grandpa Fish :) Small World!!!


Yesterday, Saturday, Grandpa and I went over to the Salt Lake Community College at 8:30 a.m.  Mitzi and Mickelle were driving down from Logan for Mickelle's dance competition.  There were hundreds of people there -- both to dance and also to watch.

Mickelle is 9 and an incredible little dancer.  Her first dance was at 9:15 a.m. and then she didn't dance again until about 12:30 p.m. 

There was an hour break from 11 to 12.  Many of the people sitting around us left their seats.  A lady and her little girl asked us if the seats in front of us were taken.  We told her that the people left and didn't leave anything there to save their seats so it would probably be okay to sit there.  

We started talking about dance and one thing led to another.  I told her about all my granddaughter's that danced and that two of them were on missions now.  I told her that Steffani was serving in Cincinnati and was suppose to be attending the Louisville Kentucky Temple on Saturday.  

The lady's name was Jacque Lee and she was holding her 'smart phone' while we were talking.  She lives in Centerville, Utah.  She told me that her neighbor's son was serving in Kentucky and his mission went into Cincinnati also.  She said "let me check my phone, my neighbor sent me a text and a picture this morning of her son, Elder Beckmen,  she mentioned something about them going to the Temple today".  

She finally found the message and the picture and showed me the picture !!  Holy Cow -- there was Steffani in the picture with Elder Beckmen sitting at a table with other Sisters and Elders having lunch.  

She said she would e-mail me the picture.  

Isn't it amazing how we are all tied together under Heavenly Father !!  There we sat among hundreds of people and a total stranger sits in front of us - and because of a friendly conversation and a smart-phone .........
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
Grandma and Grandpa Fish
