What a fantastic week serving the lord.
Chris got baptized! We were able to see Chris get baptized this week.
Such a great day! He was so happy and loving every second. He kept
telling me over and over again thank you so much I couldn't be
happier. I am so happy I am so happy. I was like Chris you should be
this is  a great day God has a smile bigger than yours. It was great.
He is so cool and so strong already. His testimony is growing by the
second and he is eating up every bit of knowledge he can get! We had a
few investigators come to his baptism too which was a huge plus. The
spirit is always felt at baptisms and it was defiantly there and they
all seemed to really enjoy! 👍👍

Well the two ladies that elder cleverly and I found while out tracting
last week, We went back to teach them and they were so excited to have
us come back. When we went to see them we had no clue what we were
going to teach so at first it was a little scattered then the spirit
took over 100%. We had the thought come to mind that thy need to know
where they come from and and who they are. So we taught them that they
are children of God, the greatest being ever! And then the thought
came they need to know why they are here so we taught them their
purpose on earth. Then the thought came they need to know where they
want to go after life, and eternal happiness is very much possible for
them. So we taught that they can one day live with that loving
Heavenly Father once again. Then the thought came how do they make it
to live with their Heavenly Father and that is when we began to lay
out the road map that God has given us to make it back to his
presence, we taught them them the gospel of Jesus Christ faith,
repentance, baptism, Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. And to watch
their eyes get so wide as everything just seemed to click in their
mind was amazing. You could see hope come to them, the hope that there
are good things to come as we follow the gospel of Jesus Christ
happiness is at our fingertips. The spirit was so strong! It pushed
them to want to come to church with us this week and it gave them the
desire to be baptized. They are aiming to be baptized on August 1st.
We went back later in the week and taught them the plan of salvation
and it hit home pretty hard. The spirit was so strong! We took the
relief society president with us and they just hit it off completely.
The plan of salvation was exactly what they needed it gave them so
much hope and peace because they have struggled with the loss of loved
ones and with the big 3 questions where they came from why they are
here and where they are going. It was such a good lesson they are
progressing so well!

Well two Saturday's ago elder cleverly and I went to see a member of
the church and as we walked up to his door this guy was out working on
his van and just said hello to us was very nice.  Then this very last
week we went back to see that same member and that same guy was
outside. This time he said hello but he stopped us and asked us who we
were and starting asking us questions. We ended up teaching him about
the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ through Joseph smith and
he was all about it. It was crazy though because the fist Saturday
when we met him he had just got in town maybe 30 minutes before we saw
him. He is originally from Iowa but is here doing a job. So it was
just the perfect time and place to meet him. And he is only here for
so long so we have ,et with him and taught him but he is going to
leave and he as expressed the desire to find the missionaries wherever
he may be at next and talk to them and go to church with them. Huge
mirCke the lord placing us in his path at the perfect time.  No
coincidences.

I am a chef now too. I made me and my companion pulled deer meat BBQ
sandwiches. I put deer meat and a bunch of BBQ sauce in a slow cooker
for 7 hours and when we came back it was so dang good. Therefore I
have become a chef these days. Learning to use a slow cooker best
thing ever!
