One of the Best Weeks of my Mission!

Family! This has definitely been one of the best weeks of my mission. The Waldens and McCormicks are still doing really well and their baptisms get closer each day. We also found 2 new people that are more prepared for the gospel than anyone I've ever seen. One of them, Sister Husband, was almost quoting the Book of Mormon to us after we prayed on her porch. She has never heard of us, but she has been seeking truth and loves the gospel of Jesus Christ. We're going to meet with her tomorrow, so we'll have to tell you how it goes next week. The other one, Cory, is one of the most spiritually intune people I have ever met, but he didn't realize it was the spirit. He told us the peace that he felt as we prayed with him and he has been feeling like he needs to be better in life. We were amazed that the spirit was in his life so much. After discussing the Restoration, he was really excited to read the Book of Mormon and asked that we come back later this week, so get ready for a lot of good news next week.
     So one of the greatest times this week was on Tuesday as we took some of the younger youth with us to teach the Waldens. It was so amazing to see the 13 and 14 year old young men teaching the gospel and inviting the Walden kids to come to mutual and pray. We didn't ask the youth to do anything, but they wouldn't stop talking about how fun mutual is and they taught the Walden kids how to pray and how helpful it is to pray. We were amazed at the power of the youth.
      This weekend has been one of the most inspiring times in my life. Watching the chosen apostles and prophets of our day teaching and testifying of truth was amazing. We are so blessed to live at this time and be in these circumstances where we are led by a prophet of God. We thank thee oh God for a prophet. We will never be led astray as we follow his counsel and if we follow him we will always be happier. I found that there are a lot of things I need to work on, and it's time to start working.
 I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!
