June 16, 2014

Dear Family, 

It's been a good week. It flew by really fast. The weather this week was actually amazing. It was a little cooler and has been a nice break from what we were having. So first off Pao is still doing great! He came to church with us which was amazing. He's doing a lot better with the word of wisdom which is amazing. He's been clean of coffee for a while now and working really hard with tobacco. He's well on his way. He came to church with us which was great. When we went over there this week we taught his roommate named Anthony as well. The kid is a stud. We taught the restoration which was a great review for Pao and it was all new to Anthony. He took it all in and loved it. He even committed to be baptized which was awesome and we were super stoked. He wanted to be baptized the same day as Pao which is July 5th and he committed to that day but since Anthony flaked on coming to church he won't be able to make that date any more because he has to come to church at least 3 times. We'll see what happens. I'm sure everything will work out great!

We're teaching this part-member family named the Francis'. The wife is the nonmember and she's awesome. She used to be on date but fell away. We're helping her overcome her addiction to cigarettes and its going awesome. We had a really spiritual lesson with her this week and we're really excited for the potential we have there. 

We've been praying and looking for new people to teach and The Lord answered our prayers. We went over to a part member family named the McCalls this week. He's a single parent who's sort of less active. He has two kids, one who's 12 and ones who's 8 and they're not baptized. We saw the whole family outside playing basketball and we got to shoot some hoops with them and just be there friends, it was awesome. The dad said we could come back on tuesday and teach his kids. We're really excited. Missionaries have tried there before but didn't have too much success so it just goes to show that The Lord prepares people in his own way and in his own timing.  

The work is progressing and we're working hard and The Lord is blessing us. We're going on a hike today with the zone to a waterfall, I think. Anyways, it's somewhere cool. I'll send pictures next week!  Love you guys.

P.S. Yes I know an Elder Hughes, I was in his last zone for 2 or 3 transfers with him. I would play basketball with him. He's a cool guy. Small world.
