July 15th 2013

Hello Family and Friends!!!!
This week has been pretty great!!! We did a lot of service and I loved it. Also our investigator Caitlyn got married and we went to that and it was a amazing wedding. Bishop did a great job and most of the people at the wedding were not members!! They all loved it too and said it was the best wedding they have been to. The day after the wedding we went over to their house and talked to Caitlin about moving up her baptism date from August 25th and she said she will let us know on Sunday at church about the day. So on Sunday we went over to them to see what day they picked and she said August 4th!!!! We are so excited to finally have a baptism on this ward.
This ward has been in a drought for baptisms since December. It is great to finally end that and hopefully improve that a lot!!! The work really is progressing and I can't wait to see the miracles come!!
Some of the service we did this week was working a lot with horses. We first went to a animal rescue place and helped out with them and we did so much in the few hours we had there. We also helped at a ranch. We had to help with kids riding and some of the kids had special needs. It was so much fun to interact with the kids and they were so funny!!! We also unloaded 80 bales of hay at the bishops. We also had a move like normal and on our way home it was raining and of course we were on bikes so we biked 4 miles in the rain and we were soaked and it was great. I loved it!!!
We have a lot of lessons set up this week with members because we really rely on members to do missionary work too. We can't do it alone. The Apostles have been talking about it a lot but the hastening of the work, more missionaries is not going to do that we really have to include everyone. Members really need to invite their friends to do things and just become closer with them. People's hearts are being softened everyday and you never know who it could be. Don't be afraid to do missionary work!!
I have loved these last 5 months, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love this area I have had to serve in and can't wait to see what happens next!!! I thank you for everyone's support. I do miss and love you all!!! I hope the best for everyone and hope everyone has a great week!!!
