This week has been a great week!  We were able to work with Bunny a lot.  We have finished the lessons with him and he is ready to be baptized.  He was also at church this week.  He worked for 48 hours straight to be able to go to church.  That has changed my life.  I will never skip church unless I am absolutely bedridden.  
As I was talking to him on Sunday that this will be one of the most memorable days of his life and he took a picture with me in the church.  He then proceeded to tell us that he would go to bed crying his eyes out every night since he got here until he met us.  He said the day he met us he hasn't gone to bed crying since.  He also now has one of the most powerful testimonies of Joseph Smith.  We were meeting with him and we asked him about Joseph Smith and he testified that he was a Prophet and the spirit was so strong.  I am so excited for him. 
  We also had an amazing experience with another one of our investigators.  His name is Dustin and he lives with one of our members for the time being(she is his mother in-law) and some background on him he has recently had surgery on his stomach.  We were over at their house teaching the Plan of Salvation and there was a weird feeling in the room.  And, out of no where he started making faces like he was in pain, so I asked him if he was okay and he said no.  His mother in-law came in and was trying to help him, but it just got worse and worse.  Then, his mother in-law came up with the idea for us to give him a blessing.  He wanted one, so while he was in pain Elder Huff anointed him and I sealed the anointing.  In the blessing he was blessed with a relief from pain and immediately his pain subsided.  It was an amazing miracle that we were able to see right before our eyes.  Afterwards his mother in-law pointed out that satan was trying to keep him from hearing our message.  It was a perfect example of how much more powerful our Heavenly Father is. 
  Overall this week was a great week full of miracles.  I love my Savior and know that he is watching out for each and every one of us. 
  We have had great weather for the past few days.  Today it has been in the 70's.  The warm weather is nice, but you always just miss the snow.  I am extremely happy and excited to start a new week.  I love y'all and hope y'all have a great week also.
