A great week :)
This week was great. We didn't teach too many lessons but we still saw miracles. We set a baptismal date with Alex who we met with a couple of weeks ago. He is a great guy. Has some mental issues and needs staff to come in every once in a while and check on him. but he is great. We set a date with him for the 21st of June. He is very excited and has all ready read a few chapters in the Book of Mormon. Hopefully he continues to read. We were planning on having a church tour with him on Saturday. But that feel through because he had some family functions going on. But he was able to make it out to church on Sunday despite not knowing what would be going on. and he had an unfamiliar family come pick him up for church... he is a brave guy! Alex loved church. He even went up and bore his testimony in Sacrament meeting which was the super scary but he did a great job! He is super solid and is excited to be baptized. Hopefully things progress with him.
James is another investigator of ours who is a super cool guy and owns a tailor shop. he is super cool. But he didn't make it to church on Sunday and we couldn't get ahold of him... So we will have to see if we can get in touch with him throughout the week. Hopefully things go well with him.
We also have a baptismal date with Calvin Barley for the 21st of June, and we will see how things go with him. He wasn't keeping his commitments for awhile but he read the plan of salvation pamphlet which means he is showing progress! So we will see what happens with him.
Anyways, I am grateful for all of the blessings the Lord has given me. This is a wonderful work to be a part of and I appreciate the Lord and his willingness to let me endeavor in the work of Salvation. It's a great thing to be a part of. I'm grateful for all of my many blessings! I love you all!
