August 25, 2014

Dear Family,

Its been another good week here in Redding. It hasn't been as hot as it has been so its been a lot more bearable so thats good. A lot of good stuff has happened this week. We worked really hard this week and saw some good stuff. Ralph is amazing and is doing super good! We met with him some a couple of times this week. He was suppose to be getting baptized this week but his fellowshipper would have been out of town he and wanted to go to it so the baptism is going to be September 5th. Ralph is still coming to church and still doing great! 

We organized and had a ward softball activity on Saturday and we really focused it towards missionary work and getting the ward members to invite nonmembers and less actives. It was a lot of success and a good time was had. It was fun to be doing missionary work but in a different way. 

Me and my companion also spoke in sacrament meeting this week. With the activity we planned, speaking in church, and the recent success we've been having, I really feel like the ward members are starting to trust us even more with their friends and we've been seeing that with a couple of referrals so its been awesome! 

We found a lady a couple of weeks ago and we had our first sit down lesson with her this week. Turns out this lady almost got baptized awhile back in Utah and absolutely loves the relief society. We had a super spiritual lesson with her and we're really excited about her potential.

Josh is still doing good and is a stud. He's set for September 27th still and we're really hoping everything works out well and goes through. We taught the Griffen family this week. They haven't been to church or met the requirements for their scheduled baptism date, so we're gonna have to push it back, but we're really hoping they can continue to progress and keep their commitments. Sometimes the whole thing of agency can be really hard. haha But we just have to keep pushing forward. 

All is well here and I'm happy. Its weird the harder I work the faster it goes. God is good. Life is beautiful. Have a great week!
