Howdy Family and Friends

This week was really really good. Elder Stallings and I had a lot of teaching appointments and we were able to find a lot of people. It's been really cool to see all the miracles. We were blessed to find a new family of 4! The family consists of the Mom, Mercedes, twin daughters Desere and Erika, and a son, Alex. They had such awesome questions! They were asking stuff like "why are there so many churches?" and "what happens after death but before Resurrection?" just super golden questions. They are all originally Catholic but they're open and I think they're really interested in the fact that we have answers to their questions. And these questions are questions they've had a for a very long time and haven't been able to have them answered before.

This week we had a La/Pm family we're teaching come to church. We had Alex (LA) and Lilyana (I) Ceja and their niece Cynai (I) and her husband Gustavo (I) along with Alex's daughter and Gustavo's 2 kids. It was cool to see them come to church again this week. We also had a less-active family at church again this week, the Lavulo family. Church was also really cool because we confirmed our Recent Covert Michael Swancy who was baptized last Sunday! That was a really cool experience. The ward has been super welcoming. In fact we already have a dinner planned with a member where we'll teaching Michael a new member lesson after the meal! Super sick. 

There's good stuff going on right now and the way I see it as long as we keep on working hard and don't mess anything up the Lord will keep blessing us with success.

Remember that God is good and that He has a plan for us all. Winston Churchill once said in an address simply, "Never ever ever ever ever give up". Life is too short to give up. Eternity is worth the difficulty of mortality.

Keep it real!
