FHE lessons and progress among investigators!

Man, this week was nice.

To start, we had a super cool Family Home Evening with a partially active family. We had them all write down their last words of advice to their children if they were to die, and then we put all the pieces of paper in a bowl. So we took them out, skimmed through some, laughed at others, tore some up and then just sort of ignored the rest and put them on the shelf. We asked how they felt and they were like "We kind of want to kill you" hahaha.  Then we asked them, “How do you think the prophets of the Book of Mormon feel when we don't read their words?" And we just dropped that bomb and let them think for a little and then challenged them to start reading from the Book of Mormon everyday and treasuring up the words inside. So it was pretty cool.

On Tuesday President Dunn came by our chapel to do a secondary interview for one of our baptismal candidates and they passed! So that made us happy.
I bought Kota twice this week.  I was feeling a little lazy and didn't want to cook haha, but we were fed a couple of nights this week, which was nice!
Sunday was the best day!  We had three people get baptized! One of them is a 15 year old kid who has been coming to church for 6 months because no one in his family is a member and he comes out teaching with us when he can.  He’s super excited to serve his own mission, and his parents have given him permission and everything, so it was awesome to be able to baptize him.

Thanks for all the love and support.  Talk to you all next week!
