July 28, 2014

Dear Family,

Its good to hear everything. I'm glad you guys had a great time with family at the reunion. I'm sure it was a good time for all. It feels weird not having any celebrations here for the 24th. Haha but as for me this week was good. There was some crazy things that happened this week. As for Jeremiah, his baptism didn't go through on Saturday which was kind of disappointing because he didn't get the guts to ask his mom for permission when he was with her. We met with him again this week though and had a great lesson with him. We talked him through how to best ask his mom for permission and to have the courage. He's on date for August 9th now. His dad is all for it and really wants it to go through. 

Mark is almost a week free of cigarettes which is a huge blessing! We gave him a blessing at the beginning of the week to be able to overcome it and he's pushing through it. He's come to church 3 weeks in a row now and is super on tract for his baptism  which is now on August 15th. We're super excited for him and he is just really prepared. 

Ralph is doing good as well and he committed 100 percent this week to give up coffee. He's progressing and doing awesome! We don't seem to have a huge teaching pool but the ones we have seem to be the elect which is the biggest blessing. His baptism will be on August 15th as well. 

Crazy story, we were out contacting some potentials this week and we knocked on this door and the man yelled come in. So we went in and it was this older man and he was completely naked. It was pretty crazy and kind of awkward. Haha he then went on to yell at us while still unclothed and so we left. It was a good laugh afterwards though. 

I went on exchanges this week with the zone leaders which is always a good time. That's about all for this week. 

I love you guys and you are always in my prayers.
