19 May 2014 letter

Spending a lot of time this past week looking for a new apartment to live in.  I thought being a missionary was busy, but it's even worse when you have to find an apartment on top of that!  We don't get a whole lot done.

Last Friday we drove to Nauvoo for our Zone Training Meeting and ate at Grandpa John's Cafe afterwards and went to the Fudge Factory next door, yumm!  Drove back to Burlington and then got a ride back to the temple that night with the Rowe family from the ward.  I love going to the temple.  The peace and comfort felt there was very much needed the past few weeks.

Bryce and Taylor were baptized on Saturday morning!  We reactivated a young mother 2 months ago and because of this her sister decided to go back to church to sit with her and bring her two sons, Bryce and Taylor along.  If me and Sister Woodbury hadn't found her, they wouldn't have been baptized.  It was definitely a miracle!  One of them was even old enough to get the priesthood yesterday after Sacrament meeting! 

Zeke also went to the Baptism and church and was able to feel the Spirit very strongly at those meetings.  She wants to be baptized now!  I am so happy for her.  We knocked on her door and gave her a book of Mormon and she has done all the other work.  God doesn't help those who don't help themselves first.  She converted herself and we supported her through it.  When she is baptized it will be my first baptism through our own finding efforts on my mission.  Zeke calls us her "Ladies."  lol. She's cute.

Those were our miracles for this past week!  lots of hard things and lots of good things happening everyday, but it is definitely worth it to see people change and gain a testimony of the Truth.
