Dear Mom,
That's so awesome that Liz came. I miss those guys! It sounds like pioneer day was tubular though.
We had appointments for those two investigators at church for Saturday but they both crapped out on us. Yesterday something pretty cool happened. This whole week has been one of the best weeks so far on my mission. On Friday it was zone conference. President Gamiette is so cool! He is way funny and his discourse was amazing. Then yesterday we were walking on the boulevard where we usually walk every night and I was about to sit on some steps to take a little rest and then Elder Silvester was like 'hey lets go rest over there' and there was a huge roller skating party on the boulevard so there was a ton of people that we had to walk through. Then when we were walking I heard someone saying 'excuse me' trying to get our attention. Then we talked to the lady and she said she wanted to join our church. She had a couple other times in her life that she had seen the missionaries (like christmas caroling) that she was really impressed with. I felt the strongest prompting I've ever felt on my entire mission to testify to her about the truthfulness of the church and I did it and i said a bunch of other stuff. I was kind of shaking after it was incredible.
I got the package and it was great. The candy is great. The recipe is great.
Yes, I play the piano at church every week. Sometimes its weird because the branch doesn't know the hymns very well and the singing is off from my playing but its fine. I don't have much time to write today but love you and thanks for your prayers, letters; and support! love ya!

Letter 6/28

Dear Mom and Family,
I just got back from a chute! A waterfall I mean!
It was amazing! It seemed like something from a movie.
There was a huge round pool at the bottom and the river
that flowed out of it was so deep! And ofcourse all the
water was crystal clear. It was a zone activity so we
had an awesome thought from the zone leaders and then
one of the zone leaders (Elder Snow) ripped his shirt
like captain Moroni and then he duct taped it on a
stick. It was so hilarious. Next week me and Elder
Silvester are going to help some guy build some crab
catching cages for service! I am doing great. Francine,
the investigator that's going to be baptized this
weekend told me she could recognize me from a dream
she had a long time ago and I was so glad because I
thought I wasn't that big of a help because I still
don't understand alot so I didn't think I had a big
influence during our lessons but she told us that we
helped her so much and she loved having us over. Elder
Silvester has told me a bunch of stories about people
who got baptized because of dreams they had. I'm loving
it out here! I'm working hard! I pass out every night!
I am cassé! The language is coming fine. It's still
pretty hard to understand people sometimes but I feel
like I can say most of the things I want to. Love you
family! Thanks for your prayers! I pray for everything
to go good for you too!
