Wow that is crazy that EJ Rios is home already. It shows what little time we have as missionaries. This week was the best week I have had here in Fall Creek. We taught a lot of lessons and committed many to baptism. On wednesday we went on exchanges and I was with Elder Yukon whom is a zone leader. As we were out working we tried by a guy named David whom we have been trying for over a month. As we walked up to the door he came outside and said, "How yall doing? Wanna come to work with me?" We were a little confused so we asked some questions and found out we would be driving around because he is a tow truck driver, and so we agreed to go. While we were going, he asked a lot of questions and we ended up teaching him the whole Restoration. He then asked us to show him our church building so we took him there and he was amazed at how beautiful the building was. Then, we invited him to go inside and he agreed. We then taught him about our chapel and about what we do at church. We then took him to the baptismal font and taught him about baptism. He then asked us if we could fill up the font right now and baptize him. We explained that there are some things you have to do before you get baptized and then committed him to a date to prepare for. We then left and he took us back to the car. It was an amazing experience, the spirit was so strong. He also came to church on sunday.
Anyways, on thursday during our Hour of Power we tracted into a lady named Natalie. She is a young black mother. Her kids are so funny! She has a 4 year old girl named Allayna and a 2 year old boy named Jeremiah and her husband is out of town for right now because he works for a oil company. So, we started talking and turns out when she was a teenager missionaries used to come over and talk to her dad, but she knew nothing about us. So, we taught her a short lesson and set a return appointment. We, then went back with a member and had an awesome restoration lesson and commited her to baptism and to come to church. And, on sunday they showed up and they loved it! It was amazing. Anyways now to my last story. We have been going over to see a guy named Bobby like once a week. I think I have told ya'll a little bit about him. Anyways, we went over last night and were talking and he asked the question, "Why do people do things in the name of Christ that are wrong?" We then told him that our message can explain that. So, we taught him the restoration. The spirit was so strong and he committed to read the Book of Mormon and Come to church in two weeks. He is a really good man and I am so excited to see what happens with him.
Well, I love ya'll and hope all is going well at home. Elder Martinez and I are working hard and loving it! Love my Misson! Love the Work! Love ya'll!
