Well this week has been full of small miracles. To start off we were walking out of the library one day and right as we were leaving one of our investigators was walking into the library. It was really great because he had been out of town for a week or so and it had been hard to contact him. So we talked for a little bit and we are going to meet with him this week.

I was on exchanges with Elder Martinson who was assigned as an American Sign Language speaking missionary. So we knocked on a door and the lady who answered saw that he knew ASL and said that she had taught at a school helping the kids who were hard of hearing or deaf. It was amazing to see the Lord guide us this week. It seemed like we were just at the right place at the right time. 

The big news for this week is that Mia was baptized! Mia is the daughter of Echo, the lady that was baptized about 3 weeks ago. It was great to see Chris, her step father, be able to baptize her. Elder Fowlks was able to give her the gift of the Holy Ghost on Sunday

Also exciting - the Guerreras were able to come to church this week! It was great to see them there and the ward really seemed to welcome them in. 

Since we had stake conference last week, this week we had fast and testimony meeting.  A mother stood up to bear her testimony and she had a two year old little girl in her arms. The mother talked about how she had been having a rough week before and one day she was really thinking about if she was a good mother or not. And one of her boys spoke up and said "You're the best mom ever!"  And she said that that experience had really touched her. But then as she was telling the story the little girl in her arms said "but you are the best mom ever!" It was a sweet testimony that I'm sure touched the hearts of those who attended.

So we had a baptism which was awesome, but not a whole lot else. We had a couple really good lessons with the Millers (Echo and Mia) and with the Guerreras and we have a good week coming up. This week is transfer week. We should know by tomorrow night if one of us is leaving or we are both staying.

Thank you all so much for what you do!

This is for you Dad
