Aloha Family and Friends,
How is everyone doing back home?  Well for me I had a fantastic week full of spiritual experiences on my mission.  To start off we had 4 wonderful baptisms on Saturday.  The first baptism was at 10 for the Romaro's family of Robert, Catherine, and Sonya.  They were so happy to be baptized and make convenents with God.  The spirit was so great.  Their brother in law-Brother Rantz baptized them.  It was a great baptism.  I am so grateful to have a family baptism that brings their family closer to our Heavenly father.  I hope they stay strong and continue to endure to the end and get sealed in the temple for eternity in a year.  Then we had another great baptism at 6:30 for Ben Courtney a 16 year old.  He had a great turnout of family and friends that came to witness this spiritual day in his life to be baptized.  Lots of them were non-members so hopefully they felt the spirit and are interested in learning more about the gospel and our Heavenly Fathers love for them.  We had 3 book of mormons on a supply table and they were all gone after the baptism so that is a great sign that they felt the spirit.  His friend from school baptized him.  He shared a wonderful testimony of his decision to be baptized and hopefully he continues to build his faith and serve a mission because sharing the gospel is a wonderful feeling.  The next day on Sunday, they were confirmed members and received the Holy Ghost in Apache Park sacrement meeting.  I got the honor to confirm Sonya.  It was such a wonderful spiritual feeling to confirm her, give her the Holy Ghost, and give her a blessing by the spirit.  It was one of my greatest spiritual moments on my mission.  They were all filled with joy and happiness after they were confirmed and got the gift of the Holy Ghost as a constant companion in their lives to guide them.  Then in Sunrise Mountain sacrement there were TWO great mission farewell talks by Preston Brooksby the Bishop's son and Spencer Perreck on preparing for their mission.  There was so many people that came to hear there talk.  There were chairs half way into the gym and they were all taken. The rest of the week was great.  On Tuesday, we did some visit with members and some tracking which I placed a Book of Mormon.  We are going back some time this week to see if he read it and prayed to know if it is true.  On Wednesday, we had zone interviews with President Taylor and learned about nutrition and being obedient to our mission rules.  After I went on a companion exchange with Elder Vaoga in his area and we had a lesson with Ethana on the plan of salvation.  On Thursday, we visited some less actives and taught them the gospel and we are trying to help them come back to church.  On Friday, my companion Elder Geren was sick so we stayed in all day and I just studied most the day and cleaned around the house.  Well hope everyone is doing great back home.  My prayers are with you all.  Please write me letters, I love hearing updates on everyones life.

Love, Elder Lance Kuhi Cabral
