June 30, 2014

Dear Family,

Its been quite the week this past week. Definitely one of the highlights from my mission. We'll start with the best part first, Saturday was Brayden's baptism. It was awesome. It makes everything so worth it as a missionary. I'll send a couple of pictures from it. The story with this family is so awesome and there definitely some of the people I've become the closest with throughout my mission. Now everyone in the past 15 months or so, including Brayden now, has been baptized in that family, besides the father. Hopefully he decides to make that decision soon. Even though I've only been gone from that ward for about 5 weeks it was awesome being able to see everyone there at the baptism. After the baptism we went and had a barbecue with family, friends, and all the missionaries who were able to come to the baptism. It was a good time. After Brayden was baptized he told me he knew this was true. That alone makes it that much better because you know he's converted. I'm grateful to be able to be a instrument in the Lords hands to do his work. 

This week we went down to chico and had what they called a specialized zone training but what it really was, was just a meeting to be able to say goodbye to our mission President. It was a great meeting and it was definitely sad to say goodbye. I'll send a picture of that as well.

As far as the work this week it was busy but good! Mary is still on date for June 19th and Jeremiah is on date for July 26th(but we might change that one) we met with both of them this week and things are going well with them. They're continuing to progress. We're just praying really hard that Mary will make it to church these next couple of weeks. We did a lot of less active work this week which was awesome and had 5 less actives come to sacrament. We also found two new investigators this week. So The Lord is continually blessing us and helping us out. 

So I'm living in the same members house right now that one of the Voorhees boys lived in. It was Brad.  Small world just thought I would let you know about that. 

Sorry if I sent too many pictures!   Love you guys. Have a great 4th of July!
