JUNE 27, 2016

SO this week was a BLAST!!!
On Tuesday we had a Zone Conference and it was amazing! We really stressed the importance of our teaching skills! Cause we are great at finding people to teach! But for some reason our mission is starting to lack in our teaching skills! So our mission has what we call "Ferocious Finding" and now we're starting what we call "Turn-up Teaching". We are really focusing on letting people know why we are coming over to teach them and our purpose in it all! So basically, the basics!! It was a great zone conference.
Later that night, Elder Sparks and i went out with a member and his son to go see a referral that we had gotten the day before. His name is Miguel and he is a TRUE TRUTH SEEKER. He is just looking for the truth and something that is going to help strengthen his faith that he says has really been shaken and broken down lately! He is so awesome and is ready and willing to learn!! we are going to see him again on Friday and we can't wait!! 
On Wednesday we committed 2 of our investigators to baptism!! 
1.Bill Tloa, he's a Nazarene that his super religious! We taught him about how he will be able to see his wife again (she just died in January of cancer) and tied it back into the priesthood and taught the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He loved it and said the he knows the Book of Mormon is true and is the word of God like the Bible. we invited him to be baptized and he said yes!! We're meeting with him later this week to talk about a date.
2. John Gatewood, he's a former investigator from a year ago that we recently came into contact with!! He has some of the most sincere prayers i have ever heard! He knows the Book of Mormon is true and loves coming to church!! We invited him to be baptized on July 9th and he said YES!!!!!!!!! 
We're so excited for the both of them!! 
That's about it for this week though! It was just a great week over all!! 
I love you all!!
