Dear Everyone!
Its really great hearing that Paul is off in college now and wish him the best of luck. But yes i must agree that it feels weird that Paul is old enough for college!
So this week has been pretty interesting. In both my prosolyting life and life at the house.
First off, that family that i mentioned in the last letter... well we are still working with them, their testimony is growing and they are really liking and i believe understanding what we teach every time we go to visit them. The family is reading the Book of Mormon (the mom more so then the kids, but thats alright and was kind of expected) and praying. I think the most excelent thing is that they went to church this week! We talked to them last night and though they said they like everything and you can tell that they can fell the spirit when they read and pray and do all that stuff but i believe they are still really nervous about making the decision to be baptized this week. So we will see what happens. I know that if they make the decision, they will be blessed so much in their lives...but right now they just need to know that, believe that, and act on that.
ok i am going to continue this later today. We like to split up our hour of computer time into 2 parts depending what we have going on today. So i will continue this later.

Ok im back.
so basically that family that i talked about in the other half of this letter is the family that we have really been focusing on this week and yes we have taught others but yeah they has really been the big focus of this week.
So the changes that have happened at my house. You guys all know that there are 4 people living in the house i am in now and it gets a little cramped at times but now there are 5. And this person number 5 isnt even a missionary. Basically what happened is we got a call in the middle of the night from a young man in the ward. He called to tell us that his mom has kicked him out of the house or something because of an arguement they had about religion. This young mans name is Gabriel. He is the only member of the church in his family and he is leaving for a mission on July 4th. We let him stay the night at our places and then after that we talked to the Stake President and our Zone Leaders and supposidely they talked to our Mission President. And the final choice was made that he can stay with us until around the time that he leaves. Yes it is a lot more croweded but he does like to cook, so im guessing our blessings of letting him stay with us come in the form of food. He also likes to go teaching with us and well basically does everything with us. Hes getting the oppertunity to live the missionary live and learn and all that before actually entering into his mission. Its really cool teaching with him because he is a convert, only been a member for about a year and half or so and he has a really strong testimony that the Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Dias is the true church of God and that the Book of Mormon is true and that we have a living Prophet here on earth today to guide us. I have a testimony of those things too but it is cool hearing him as a convert talk about it in our lessons.
Ok well love you all!
