July 17, 2010

Yo Family-fo-Shamily. Things are going well. I'm glad to hear that you had a good 4th of July. And you got Bronson out of the house! Alright! Hopefully, he lost some weight, ha-ha.

So last week was good. We have three baptismal dates set: Terri, for July 31st, Kennedy for August 7th, and Margie for August 7th as well. We might be dropping Kennedy. We need to see how seriously she's going to take it. Terri is really cool. Elder Berhold and I tracted into her my first week here and set a return appointment. Then later, we found out that she had previously received some assistance in the emplyment center at the mission office. And she had talked to an elder that was here a while ago and she was going to take the lessons but then that missionary left. So we just happened to knock on her door. Pretty crazy. She already had a Book of Mormon. The Lord definitely had a hand in putting our paths together. I love how that works :). And then Margie is really awesome. She was a referral that a couple of sister missionaries gave us. The boundaries are a little confusing up here so they were tracting in our area and found her. Free investigators! Whoo! Ha, kidding. But she's great and wants to get baptized. She came to church with her 8 month old daughter, Unique. She's so cute, ha-ha. Such a happy baby. So we're really stoked to work with Margie.

We had a pretty fun experience this week. We were knocking doors and this Arabic family was having a Bible study and they told us to come in and tell them about the "Mormon Faith." So we did and we were straight up standing and preaching to like 12 people, ha-ha. It was so sick. Some of them tried to argue but we pretty much worked them . . . nicely . . . on everything. It was a good time. Ha. But that's pretty much it. Now it's Zone P-day and I'm going to go play basketball.

Have a great week!
