Week 33, May 4, 2015 BIG WEEK

This week has been awesome.  We were able to see sop many miracles, and our area is building up.  We have been able to find several new investigators, and 2 of them are being taught and have accepted baptism.  Also, one of our investigators we have been working with for a long time (since August) kind of stopped progressing.  We weren't really sure what to do to help him, so we just started teaching his whole family.  On Friday, our investigator Kevin was talking to his friend who went with some of the elders in our zone for the mini mission, and is waiting on his papers.  We got a text from Kevin saying that he wanted to get baptized! It was a great miracle.  We followed up with him the next day (because it was late) and he wants to get baptized on the 16th!!!

We also had a specialized training with our whole mission (in thirds)  so we went to Carson City, and Fallon came too.  We got little black boxes installed in our cars.  They monitor our every move, bump, speed, seat belts.  It seemed pretty horrible, but so far, its only had to tell us to slow down once (even though we were going the speed limit and there were no other signs :P ).  Our mission president also talked to us about the importance of going to church, and how important the church experience is for EVERYONE.  Two great quotes were:  "What is said is hardly relevant to what is felt." and "We must give our sabbath day to the Lord. 6 days with Him on our side is much better than 7 days without Him."  I know that with this new push on the importance of church will allow us to see even more miracles!

I have seen this on my mission.
