I love this area. We had a guy come to church on Sunday and he went to all the classes.  We had a member come up to us during sacrament meeting and he told us that the new guy is a non-member and he wanted to introduce us to him.  We set up an appointment to go see him and his daughter on Monday. We went over and he just jumped in and told us about his life. He needs help and he has had influences in his life that all lead back to the church. He has been reading the Book of Mormon on his phone. He is in Messiah and he told us that he feels that he should be baptized..... I was ecstatic on the inside but I knew I had to pay attention to what he was saying. =)  We told him about the lessons that we have and stuff like that. Then he started asking about the temple and we told him about the priesthood and what certain things we need to do to be able to go to the temple. He is a great guy. We set up our next appointment for next Monday and he said he is going to have us over for dinner and then we will have the first lesson afterwards. He said how he knew where to go was that he went on to Mormon.org and learned a lot about our religion. That’s how he knew what time to come to church. I have a true testimony of Mornon.org now!!!  Mormon.org is amazing.  You guys need to make a profile!!! Please!! Everyone 18 and over!!!  

I love you all. =)

Dave's priesthood ordination was great! We could feel the spirit. I gave Dave a blessing then gave him the priesthood. It was great I can't even explain it. I think Bishop Orien said that the spirit that we feel now is the same as the spirit that Joseph and Oliver felt when John conferred the Aaronic Priesthood upon Joesph Smiths head.
TJ and Lynne got baptized on Saturday and was confirmed on Sunday. It was a wonderful baptismal service. TJ got baptized first and sat like a Buddha off to the side as Lynne got baptized. Dave got to baptize Lynne and she had to be baptized forward because of her bad knees so Dave baptized her and she didn't go all the way down and Elder Sproul was in the font so he put his hand on her head and pushed her down and Dave had both of his hands on her back pushing down so she would go down and she got all the way under and she got up and she coughed and she said " you nearly killed me."  She then thought of something to say to show that everything was alright. And then we told her that Elder sproul was the one with his hand on her head she laughed. We had a great time and Lynne bore her testimony after the baptism about how she came to America and why she waited a little longer to be baptized instead of being baptized with Dave.  They are wonderful people. 
I love you all. I pray for you guys everynight. Stay safe.

We had a pretty good week this week. On Sunday it was announced that Lynne and TJ's baptism will be at 11am on Saturday the 6th. I'm super excited for them.  And also Dave has been preparing himself to receive the Priesthood and we were talking about it on Sunday while eating dinner with them. Dave told us that he will see us at 8 on Tuesday. And that was the time that the bishop told us to come over to the church and we asked him how he knew we were going to be at the church at that time and he said "because that is when I'm going to be getting the priesthood." So then we asked so who are you going to have give you the priesthood and he said, "Elder Lee. You have already given me a bath and confirmed me. Why not?" and I of course said I'll do it.  I don't know what I did to influence this mans life but I sure did something.  I am so thankful that I'm out here serving the Lord. Helping people change their lives for the better.  Lynne is still getting ready for her baptism date.

Love you all lots. Your always in my prayers.
