A "Really" Good Week!

Hello Everyone,

This week was a really good.  One we had the car.  Two we were able to meet with all our investigators. And three, we now have four people on date for baptism!  So we were able to get things done this week.

We have taught the Howe family the Restoration, watched the video of Joseph Smith first vision, and the plan of Salvation.   They are on date for the 7th of Aug.  So it really awesome!  Then we have Chelsea who is from India and has been in America for a year.  She knows little about Christianity which is totally new for me!!  Because usually people at least people know the stories of Christ.  She didn't even know what to do when someone was praying.  But it was awesome to teach her.  She was really open to keeping her commitments and learn more.   She is as well on date for Aug 7th.

We have been applying what Preach My Gospel says which is teach those who will accept you.  We have found that the people from Burma are very willing to learn and commit so most of our investigators are from Burma.  We have found and are teaching about 6 families from Burma so we have been busy with them.

This coming Saturday, Myia is planning on getting baptized and I will be baptizing her.  So it will be my one and only baptism that I perform.  So please keep her in your prayers at night!  I will send pics!

Thank you all for the support that you have sent!  Will see ya’ all in a few!

Temple Trip with Returning Missionaries

Hey Everyone,

This week was full of events.  We had exchanges with the zone leaders.  It’s always fun because we get to go teach a bunch of Asian people.  We taught this man who came to church because he found a card that had the church’s address.  We taught him the Plan of Salvation and put him on date.  It was pretty cool.  One of those prepared people.

Then on Thursday, all of those missionaries going home this month went to the temple together.  It was really cool to see that we all made it to the end!  I will send a picture of my MTC District.  This week we found three Burmese families!  They were excited to see us too.  Also, Myia is getting baptized this July 9th, so PLEASE PRAY FOR HER to get baptized this time.

Trip to the Aquarium

Hello everyone,

The start to the end.  I have a new Companion, Elder Misustin from Logan, UT.  Pretty cool kid.  This last week we didn't really have anything exciting happen other than we went to the Aquarium.  I will send pics of it.  On the way home Elder Ferbrache lost His camera on MARTA [public transportation] so we tried to find it, but it was gonzos.

The Spirit Whispers

Hello everyone,

This week was the best week we have had in a while we finally got 5 MP's [Lessons taught with a member present] and we found a lot and had a lot of other lessons.  So it was a really good week and I am content with it.

We found this man named Edgardo and we actually found him while we were biking to an appointment.  I said “hi” to him and he said “hi” back and I felt the spirit tell me to go back and so we turned around real quick and ask him about what he knew about the church.  He said he had talked to missionaries back in Guatemala.  Long story short, he invited us back.  Yesterday we went back and gave him the Book of Mormon.  Next time we come back we will follow up on what he thought of the introduction.  So we are excited to see how he did.

Today we are going to hike Stone Mountain.  It’s going to be fun I think!  [I will] send pics next week!

Love you all!

Ferrari Pictures

Hello everyone,

This was a good week.  We worked really hard!  This past week we were riding our bikes along and we stopped at a gas station and there was a Ferrari sitting and my companion “geeked” out on me.  He asked the guy if he could take pictures of his car he said yes so I started talking to him he lives in Buckhead, GA.   He flips homes for a living so it was pretty cool to talk to him.

This week was tough.  A lot of our solid people are flaking out on us so we are doing some serious building.

Have a great week!
