April 1, 2013

FAMILY!!!!!  Wow that week went by fast! haha I hit my 7th month mark this week! It is pretty crazy, sometimes it feels like it has gone slow, but looking back it has gone pretty dang fast! haha.  This week was a good one and it sounds like you all had a good one too!

We met with Leo this week!  It went really well!  He is such a good kid.  We taught him the plan of salvation, and also taught him about the word of wisdom.  He told us that he would stop drinking coffee.  So far he has stopped a little bit, and he is improving so much.  I truly can see a spiritual change in him.  He is a genuine good kid.  He comes to church every week on his own and has been reading the Book of Mormon on top of school, work, and everything else.  He is a great example to me.  We are trying to mark his baptism for next week.  We meet with him again tomorrow night.

We also met with this girl named Pamela, who is friends with a Recent Convert family.  We taught her the first lesson and invited her to be baptized on the 13th.  She accepted, but when Sunday rolled around, she didnt come to church.  We will have to push the baptism off another week if she still follows through.  We met with her two times, and we will meet with her a third time this week.

We met a new guy named Jair.  We met him last week doing some contacts.  We returned on Saturday and shared the first lesson with him, and gave him a Book of Mormon.  He seemed to really enjoy the message we left, and is looking forward to meeting with us again on Friday.  We left him a part to read and said he will read a bunch this week and pray to know if it is true.  He is a really great guy and I hope he follows through.

We have been working a lot with Less Active Members, and trying to find new people to teach.  It isnt very easy to find new people! haha.  A lot of people already have their religion, and they just say, "We love the work you are doing." haha but they dont accept our lessons.  But we are trying to find new people and we are working with a bunch!

I love you all and tell Morg that I love her too!  I missed Easter without you guys, but me and Elmer chilled and made some cookies for the neighbors.  I am super excited for Conference this weekend!!!!  You all better watch it :) Have a great week!
