October 27, 2014

Dear Family,

It's been another good week. Its scary how fast time is going. Weeks are starting to feel like days. haha Its been an eventful week to say the least. We had a few setbacks but we pushed through the best we could. On one day I got a record 7 or 8 flat tires all in the same day. I decided that after a year of patching the same tube that it had better days and that I was probably better off buying a new tube. We also had some major storms this week! It was seriously insane how bad the storm was. Biking around town during the storm and after we saw numerous trees that had tipped over and smashed houses or other various things. It was a good time looking back at it though. We got trapped when the storm was at its worst and we ended up biking through the hail. All in all though we were safe and we saw a lot of cool miracles this week!

Our biggest highlight of the week is our 12 year old investigator named Kyra. She's from a part-member family and we've been teaching her for a little bit now and she committed to be baptized on November 15th! She committed to it and her parents are fully supporting her in her decision. She's incredibly smart for how young she is and knows a ton about the gospel and catches on really fast to everything we teach. She's fitting right in with the young women program and they're taking her right in. Its cool to see all this take place.

We saw so many miracles this week finding investigators to teach. With all of our recent converts we've been spending more time finding new people to teach and so we saw some good success this week. A few quick stories, we were out walking around and we street contacted this college aged man and we got talking and he invited us in his house and we taught the restoration to him and 3 of his roommates. One was from Switzerland, one from Germany, and the others I can't remember. The spirit was so strong though. Afterwards during our closing prayer some of them were crying and they gave us hugs after and told us thanks for the message we shared with them. They said it meant a lot to them. It was seriously the coolest miracle. Although shortly we'll be passing them off to the YSA ward it was still super cool to be an instrument in the Lords hands to find these people.

So many cool things happened this week but I don't have time to tell it all. Our Heavenly Father is so good to his children!  Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Love you guys! Have a great week!
