Hello Family and Friends,
How is everyone doing? Well for me, it was another wonderful week in the mission field serving the Lord and doing the Lord's work. The weather was still very nice this week in the mid 90's, drinking lots of water throughout the day keeps me hydrated. We had some very great lessons this week with the investigators we are teaching. Sandy's Baptism got postponed because she went into the hospital on Saturday, she is pregnant and was not feeling well and having pains from her baby. She got out of the hospital a few hours later and was doing well. She just needed to stay home and rest. Hopefully she feeling good this Saturday and gets baptized and receives the Holy Ghost to help and comfort her. We also had a great lesson with Lareda on Friday about strengthening our Faith in Jesus Christ by praying, reading the scriptures, going to church, serving others, and keeping the commandments. She did not know if the Book of Mormon was true and she was not receiving any answers from our Heavenly Father. We promised her that if she continued to read and pray about the Book of Mormon that she would receive an answer. She text us the next day saying "YES, I am ready to be Baptized". We were so excited to hear her good news after we were bummed about Sandy's baptism. Lareda has a baptism date for May 19. Lareda had a great Sabbath day at church. We had a wonderful fast and testimony meeting. The spirit was so strong that I had to go up and bear my testimony about the Gospel and how grateful I am to be a servant of our Savior - Jesus Christ and preaching his Gospel to all our brothers and sisters in Phoenix. We also taught the Gospel Essential class on the Atonement and how we can live with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and our Families for Eternity as we live the Gospel through our lives. Robie Moore recent convert is doing really well. She seems to always be happy since she got baptized and received the Holy Ghost to help and guide her. On Saturday, I was on exchanges with zone leaders Elder McBribe and we had a lesson with Sandy, we read 2 Nephi 31 with her and prepared her for her baptism. Then we did some visit with some potential investigators. We made it a goal to talk with everyone we see not only the people we pass on the streets. We had 4 return appointments to give a Book of Mormon or do a prayer with them. That strengthens my Faith that the Lord is truly preparing people for us to teach and help them come unto Christ as long as we are doing our best to share the Gospel with all those we come in contact with or see. Two of those return appointments were from people out in the yard and as we are going up to them and offering help. Well that was my amazing week here in Phoenix. I love being a missionary and sharing the Gospel and our Heavenly Father's plan for all of us to return to live with him. I want to wish my Mother and ALL Mother's - Happy Mothers Day! this coming Sunday. I cannot wait to talk to my family this Sunday. I should be calling around 12-1 Hawaii time. Well until next week! Take care.
