Asia's Baptism!

I cut my hair!  Bangs!!!!!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing fathers out there! This week was really good, and I learned a lot! On Wednesday we had an awesome zone meeting! We talked a lot about family history, and then the zone leaders talked about leadership, and how a lot of missionaries will be going home, so all of us young missionaries will be put into leadership positions! Talk about pressure!! Haha! After the meeting we went to this really nice Chinese restaurant. Oh my
lanta the portion sizes were ginormous! Later that day we went and
taught Avery. He is 8, and is getting ready for baptism. He has been
coming to church these past couple weeks, and we are so grateful for
that! Avery hadn't been coming to church, and so we are glad that he
is coming every week! We went over a few of the baptismal interview
questions with him, and he did so well! He understands the things that
we teach him, but he struggles with remembering it:) But he is
progressing, which is really good! 

We had an amazing day on Thursday! The Spirit was definitely prompting me to go tracting! I am not fond of tracting but the Lord was persistent with me:) And so
was Sister Hunt! So we decided to contact this one less active, and
then knock on the neighbors doors to see if they knew the less active.
We knocked on this one door, and a guy named Lorenzo opened the door.
We talked to him about the Book of Mormon, and he told us that he had
a faith in Christ. We asked him if he was interested in learning more
and he (to my astonishment), said yes!!!! Ahhhhhhh! That NEVER happens!
What a miracle it was to have an experience like that! The Lord truly blessed us when we followed the Spirit.

Later that night we went to see the Miranda's. They are an awesome
family that we had dinner with a week or two ago. They are all
converts, and they all have strong testimonies. But it is hard for
them to come to church consistently. We shared the story of Elijah and
the widow of Zarephath. We talked about sacrifice and faith, and the
blessings that come from exercising our faith, and doing what God
wants us to do. 

On Friday, we did some weekly planning, and we taught
David who is a returning member. His friend Kolton came to the lesson,
and we talked about missionary work. At the end of the lesson, we
challenged them to give out a Book of Mormon to someone. They were
really excited about the challenge! 

On Saturday we had Asia’s baptism! She is the happiest person you will ever meet. Even when she is mad she will say with a big grin on her face, “It makes me so angry!" And then she will start laughing. She is amazing! Her testimony is strong,
and she will bless the lives of everyone around her. Sorry the letter
is so short this week! I love you all!
