"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

May 26, 2014

We saw a horse so you know we had a fun week!! We got wrecked by the rain the other day though. We were walking back from a lesson out in the fields and these huge clouds rolled over from the mountain and nailed us. We booked it to our next appointment all pathetic and drenched, but they saved us with some towels. We had a black out, or brown out as they say here, so we had a lil' candlelight lunch. Then it hailed too, like bigger than a quarter size. Ah, if only it were snow....

We had a way dope baptism though on Saturday. We have this family we've been teaching. The mom is inactive as in hasn't been to church in like 25 years and her husbands not a member, just their 13 year old daughter. But we baptized their 17 year old son and they all came. It was great! We've been teaching them every night for the past few weeks, so we've gotten way close with them. He gave a great testimony and broke down a bit. He's got a crazy past for a 17 year old and just talked about how after his girlfriend left him and took their kid from him, he wanted to fix things for his kid. So he started going to church with his sister and me and my last companion started teaching him. He quit smoking and drinking and now reads, prays and goes to church and plans on serving a mission. We fasted with him the other day and then took him out to eat at McDonald's afterwards. I am way stoked for that family.

We're having fun though. We keep having investigators show up that we've been teaching. We had the young man above and now 3 others. All 21 and all have gages and tats, but they all like rap. Two of them are artists so we get along well. Its way fun teaching kids our age, helping them to figure life out other than just being young wild and free.

But that's about our week. Only a few more of these reports left and I'll be home! Got flight plans and all! I'm so stoked. Love you!
