Kim and Dany

Memorial Day Picnic at a member's house.
Dan's baptism

We got to help with the "Relay for Life" Marathon

So - again - this week was awesome. At the start of the week we had a sweet Family Home Evening lesson with one of the part member families in our ward. We were able to get the boy friend in and listen for a few minutes. It was pretty cool because he actually stayed and he hasn't really done that before. . . progress. The next day on Tuesday we had a way good lesson with a lady named Kim and her granddaughter named Dany. Kim is about 50 and Dany is 9. We were able to teach them the Plan of Salvation. Holy cow - was it way cool. The intense part of the day was that we had been having all of our appointments cancel on us and it was pouring down rain the whole time, so we were pretty bummed out. But then when we got to Kim's it stopped raining and we were able to teach them on their porch. just a little miracle that was able to turn the whole day around. We also taught Kim and Dany on Thursday and it was a way good lesson. We brought a member with us so we could go into their home. We had planned on teaching the restoration but the spirit lead us to just talk about faith in Jesus Christ and bear our testimonies on how the Gospel has blessed our lives. It was way spiritually. And Kim said we could come back ever Tuesday and Thursday.
The biggest miracle that happened this week was Dan H got Baptized !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was way awesome. I got to give the talk on baptism which was way cool to do because I had never done that before. Dan is just so gun hoe about the church its awesome to watch. He has already given a Book of Mormon out!
The biggest thing we are working on is using members. We had 10 member lessons this week which is way good for this area and we are going to try and match it again this week. Any time we have a lesson planned we are going to get a member to be there. We have been able to see a lot of blessings from this because the members are seeing that we care and are seeing how we work and are able to be a part of the work. It gets people pumped up when they get to go on a lesson. especially the priests. We have been trying to use all the priests once every week and they love it. Most of them have not ever been out with the missionaries before we started using them. Boy is that going to change! Over all - this was another awesome week. We had fun and learned a lot. I love the People here and I Love being a Missionary. nothing better.
Love, Elder Woestman
