It was so good to talk to you all last week! Oh man, that was awesome! I loved it! Thanks for staying up for me! It was so good to see your faces and hear your voices and see that you are all doing well!Glad that you all had a good time at the Ogden Marathon! I'm glad that you all are doing well!
But, other than transfer calls, this last week has been pretty good! We have gotten in some good lessons, have found some new investigators, and have been getting blessed! Last Sunday we had a kid named S. show up church. He is friends with an inactive member, and wanted to come. So, he was contacted and invited to learn. We met him that night and had a good lesson about the Restoration. He did not accept the baptismal commitment, but he committed to think and pray about it. And he really likes us and meeting with us. So on Saturday evening we took him to the institute party at the Welch's house to try to get him hooked in with members. It was just us for a while, but we played some tennis (oh man it was so fun to get out on the tennis court again! But man, I am rusty!) and built a good relationship with him, and he started feeling really comfortable and open with us. Then a few other investigators came, and we had the lesson. S. loved the lesson that Elder Welch taught about learning to use the Book of Mormon and prayer to strengthen our relationships. Then on Sunday he came to church again. And he loved it. Then Sunday night we met again and taught him the Plan of Salvation, and committed him to baptism on June 8! So that is super exciting!
And we had several other investigators at church that we feel are ready to finally accept the baptismal commitment, so we will try to commit them to baptism as well before we leave! It is exciting to see the work here picking up! Just a bummer that we have to leave. But that's the way it goes. And I am glad that we can leave some good stuff behind for the new elders coming in and whitewashing the area, so that they can be excited!
