Hey Fam what's good!!!

This week was just grand haha except for the weather! We ended up having the wettest October on record so there was a lot of rain last month! But this week we're supposed to have like 4 straight days of sunshine so that's gonna be nice!

Well this week we were finally able to meet with Maggie and Ryan. They have been progressing so well and have been coming to church for the last 4 weeks and reading the Book of Mormon. They are doing much better. We got them a place to live and they still have their new car and jobs at the DI. We met them at a park for the first discussion so there son Roman could play while we had the lesson. We taught them the restoration and how we have a loving heavenly father that wants us to live with Him again and how through His Son we can do so and become clean again. Then we taught them about modern prophets and how they lead and guide families today. Ryan had some awesome questions about that and you could tell they were striving to know the truth! After we answered their questions we asked both of them if they would follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized by someone holding the proper authority of god, AND THEY BOTH SAID YES!!! I have never felt the spirit so strong! The gospel truly blesses families!  I have seen it work countless miracles in their lives just the past couple weeks!

I remember the first day we meet Maggie Ryan and Roman. Me and Elder Packer were walking behind a Denny's and saw a lady sitting on the curb choked up in tears, in front of her broken down car, not knowing where to go. We walked up to her and through tears she said "you’re the missionaries right? Can you help me?" And we gave them a Book of Mormon and now they are entering the waters of baptism. They now know of the love their Heavenly Father has for them and his plan of happiness. So yeah I guess you could say I've had a good week 😊 We also taught the Teskes this week and they are also progressing. They have committed to reading the Book of Mormon and to pray to know if it's true. We have a lesson set up with them later this week and hope to commit them to coming to church so hopefully that goes good!

Well that's all I got for this week. I’m loving it out here and love being a tool in the Lord’s hands!
