August 4, 2014

Dear Family,

It's been another good week. On Thursday we traveled down to Gridley
for a trainer trainee meeting which was super good! Good news, our
mission President informed us we might be getting a car in our area
because of the size and the hills.  That would be really great with me,
we're hoping we'll be able to get one. We'll be able to see so many
more people each week because right now we just spend so much of our
time biking. I guess we'll see what happens.

Mark is doing so well! We literally almost met with him every day this
past week. He came to church for the 4th week in a row and people are
starting to really take him in at church. He even advertised himself
to all the priesthood group that he was going to be getting baptized
soon and he was really excited for it. He asked who could baptized him
and he asked which of me and my companion haven't actually baptized
someone yet so he asked my greenie to baptize him. I'm super excited
for my companion and to be able to do that in his first transfer in the
mission. The baptism will be August 15th. Its been amazing to see The
Lord take over. The doctors told Mark not to stop smoking cigerattes
because he has terminal cancer and it would be too hard on his body.
We'll he's showed his faith in The Lord and he's been free for about a
week and a half now! The Lord has been blessing us so much!

We went and visited a part member family this week named the Griffens.
I visited them many times before but nothing has really come of it.
Well all of the sister griffens kids committed to take the discussions.
She has a 25 year old, 17 year old whose boyfriend is also going to
take the lessons, and a 9 year old daughter. It was a huge blessing.
We taught them the first discussion and will be going back tomorrow.
We've been having a hard time the last few weeks with finding new
investigators, so this was definitely an answer to a prayer.

We taught Ralph twice this week and he even came to church! He will be
getting baptized as well on August 15th! Its been awesome teaching
him. We had a lesson two weeks on the dot before his baptism and we
told him he has to be free of coffee here on out in order to be
baptized. We gave him a blessing to be able to overcome it. We're
praying that he'll make it!

All is well here! Love you guys, hope you have a great week!
