June 22, 2014 Letter

Hey family!
It sounds like some people had some fun down at echo lake. Zach you sound like quite the fisherman. That is awesome! You will have to teach me a thing or two. Robbie and Cammie are you getting excited? When is the due date again? Amelia and Joanie when is your due dates? I am sure you have all probably told me but there is so much to remember. Also happy birthday to Robbie this week on the 28th! Turning 25 right? That is crazy! It seems like not that long ago that we were taking you down to the MTC. You were scared because you thought they were going to take you wand away. Just kidding!
Well things are still going well for us. This is definitely the warmest winter I have ever had in my life. Cammie we have run into a few people that watch the world cup, but it doesn't seem to be too big. I think Australia is already out. That is probably why.
As far as our teaching pool goes, we are having some ups and downs. Meeting with people is probably our biggest struggle. With Tarl and Darlene things keep seeming to pop up. We were able to get a short lesson in though. We are still trying to meet with Brandon again as well. We are planning to see him on Wednesday night, so we are excited about that. Alex and Chrissy were unable to make it to church yesterday which was really unfortunate. We stopped by yesterday afternoon though and had a great talk with Alex. He is trying to give up smoking and he has made some great progress. There is a program the mission uses as well so we are trying to help him with that.
We had a miracle this week! It was a long week for us and not many people were responding while we were tracting. On Saturday afternoon though we knocked on a guys door named Sam. He looked like he was in his early 20's and he was very interested in religion. We went over the restoration with him and he had some great questions! It was an awesome lesson. He understands the concept of Priesthood and he understands that if the Book of Mormon is true, then the rest is true as well. He was excited that we gave him a Book of Mormon. His only hold up is that he is starting University again this week and he will be busy. If he takes the time and puts the effort into finding out if the Book of Mormon is true, I know he will find the answer. He is a smart guy. We are seeing him again this weekend.
So things are definitely headed in the right direction. We just have to continue putting the effort in and I know the Lord will bless us. It is such a blessing to share the Gospel. I know without a doubt that we have a loving Heavenly Father who loves us and hears our prayers. He sent His Son to die for us so we can find strength in our trials, receive forgiveness of our sins, and work towards the goal of never-ending happiness as king Benjamin describes it. I am so grateful for this knowledge! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
