It's a Beautiful Day! 3/13/2017

This week was a blast and it went by super fast. We had a ton of meetings that kept us pretty busy. Elder Sutton and I had the opportunity to go to a stake mission preparation fireside for all of the youth in the stake. We were invited to go help answer questions that the young men had about serving a mission and how they can better prepare to serve. It was a ton of fun to be with all of the young men talk with them about how I had made the decision to serve and what it has taught me. They also had pie afterward so that made it even better! Hahaha.

Anyway Elder Suttton, Sheffield, Stapley and I have been companions for about 5 weeks now and this next week will be the end of this transfer cycle, meaning that some of us could potentially get transferred. This whole transfer we have been working and praying and fasting and working to find someone to teach about the restored gospel and baptize. And Wednesday we got a referral from our Spanish missionaries for a man named S. The interesting story is that they were knocking doors in our area trying to find people to teach when they came across S and he invited them in and they gave him their phone number and a Book of Mormon. He called them the next day and said he had been reading the book and wanted to learn more. So they told him that they would send us over and we would be able to answer his questions. That day I called him and Elder Stapley and I went to go meet with him. Turns out he and his wife loved what they learned from the Book of Mormon and asked us if they could become members of the church! As you can imagine both mine and Elder Stapley's facial expressions had probably dropped to an "awh" as we replied that they could. We went back throughout the week and taught a couple more lessons and then both S and his wife came to church this week and are excited to be baptized this week. We will be focusing on teaching them a little more this week as we prepare them for this next Sunday, and if all goes well they will be the miracle that we have been working and praying for! 

Love you all and have a great week!
