April 6, 2015

Dear family,

It's been an eventful week, a lot of good things have happened along
with a few unfortunate things, but I'll go ahead and just dive into it.
We're working with a man named Brendall. He's about 18 years old and
his parents are both inactive but he has active grandparents in the
ward which has been really good support for him. Anyways, we've been
teaching him and the lessons have always been really good. Some people
you teach seem to just catch a fire for some reason or another. Well
Brendall committed to be baptized at the beginning of May. Hopefully
he'll continue to feel the spirit and be able to make it. Keep him in
your prayers!

We taught our investigator named Baylie again this week. She committed
to be baptized last week and set a date for April 18th. Well Baylie
went to her dads house this week(divorced parents) and was gonna ask
for permission while she was there. Her mom, who is a recent convert,
texts us and told us the news. Its always hard to hear news like that
but we'll see what happens from here and continue to help build her
faith. Its crazy how the Lord works and is always preparing people for
you to teach. Shortly after we got a text from a member saying that
her foreign exchange student from China wants to be baptized and join
the church. We have dinner with them tonight and will be teaching the
first discussion.

We had our whole mission temple trip today! It was a wonderful
experience being in the house of the Lord and to feel of the spirit
and to be able to strengthen  my testimony. It was a good time and it
was good to see a lot of my companions and people I've served around
throughout my mission.

Conference was good as always. I got to say the family and importance
thereof was a pretty big topic and focus point through it. If I had to
choose a favorite it would probably be Elder Holland he never seems to
disappoint. Elder Brent H Nielson spoke in conference and he has come
to our mission to speak to us twice in the past 8ish months or so. So
it was cool to see him speaking. We got to watch conference with some
less active members we're working with. They were even kind enough to
feed us a couple of meals before conference sessions.

Happy late Easter to everyone. Let us all remember our Savior and that
he does indeed live today!

Elder Rosenbaum
