So this was another fantastic week.  I love this place.  Okay so amazing miracle.  We had a lesson planned with a less active member named  Chris and his 10 year old unbaptized daughter Hayley.  We asked an older member to come with us and when we got there the coolest thing happened.  Chris and the member knew each other.  Chris had gone to his ward as a youth and he actually had gone to the man's house to swim in his pool all the time when he was younger.  So they were able to talk together easily, and it just went way well.  Then we had a lesson on the power of the priesthood and how it can bless his family's life.  We were able to set a baptismal date with his daughter and then he called the bishop and is talking to him to make it so he can get on track to hold the priesthood!! How cool is that!  I love it.  The coolest miracles happen when you bring a member to a lesson.  

Ben and Elder "M":

We also had interviews with our mission president this week and it was fun because Elder "M" and I were able to do training for the other missionaries.  We focused on unity and did trust exercises.  One was we put a bag over one missionary's head and his companion had to go on his shoulders and guide him through the gym, as Elder "M" and I moved chairs, tables, and random things in front of them the whole time. lol  It was fun and they were able to learn the importance of working in unity. Below are some more pictures.  Just click on the image to see the picture bigger.
