This week was really awesome! We had so many miracles!
After our baptism we were like crap now what?! We lost our real progressing investigator! But we got a call from a family in our Ward saying that their two grandkids were going to stay with them now! Ryan (age 13) and Tifa (age 15) and that they aren't members and need to be baptized! So we had 2 lessons with them this week and they are going to be baptized sept 3! Which is really cool because it will probably be my last Saturday in this Ward! But they are awesome and it's awesome to have lessons because the the family likes to interact with the lessons!
Friday we met with the Mano family! So the dad is a member and the mom isn't. And they have 3 kids and one (JJ) is about to turn 8! We had the 3rd lesson with them and invited the mom to be baptized and she accepted! She is actually going to be baptized with her son in October so that will be super cool! They are an awesome family!
Another awesome thing that happened to us this week is we were tracting and ran into this guy named sonny! He's probably early 20s and we walked into this 4 plex and he was sitting there reading the bible! We were like what the heck?! But we started talking to him and he had just got out of prison 4 days before! And wanted to change his life! We talked to him for a little bit then the next day we shared the restoration with him and his siblings! He is on house arrest for right now so we can't really get him to church but he loves having lessons with us an wants to learn more!
This week we actually got to go on base and help this family move a dog house... And now you're probably laughing because that sounds weird but it was harder than it sounds! It took 6 of us to pick up this dog house made out of 3/4 inch plywood and it was insulated! It was crazy how heavy the thing was! And walk it to the back yard! Haha it was so funny!
Well that was kind of my week this week! Thank you for everything you guys do for me! I love you all!
