So this week has been so full of miracles and some super
amazing experiences! I wish I
had a little bit more time to write but I'm running out so I may have to make
this a little shorter than I want to. First off we had an awesome MLC on
Tuesday! There have been a lot of changes in the missionary work lately and
we're still trying to figure out how we're going to work through some of the
new changes, so we spent a lot of time counseling on how we can implement new
things without losing anything. Also it was super good to see a bunch of other
missionaries again, and President and Sister Lewis. One of the coolest parts
about MLC was President told us that on June 10th our mission is having a joint
mission conference with our neighboring Kennewick mission and that a member
the Quorum of the Twelve will be there!! Along with a member of the Presidency
of the Seventy! It should be a super cool experience!! Don't know who they'll
be yet though.

Ok so this week we've worked more with Jeff and Amanda and Evva. All three are doing super well. Though sadly none of them came to church this week, which is kinda sad. However they're doing really well. On Friday we went and helped Jeff and Amanda build these garden things. We stacked a ton of logs in a prism shape and then poured wood chips all over them. Now Jeff is going to put a bunch of top soil over the top of that. Apparently what happens is the logs decay underneath and keep the dirt super nicely fertilized. It looks pretty good. We're working with them to help them get an answer.
Hopefully by the end of this week they'll have one and be
more active in coming to church.
Evva is doing really well! We had an awesome lesson with her on Wednesday about baptism and the Law of Chastity. She's living with a boyfriend right now and he is not interested at all. It was super cool though, before the lesson even started Evva told us and our member that she felt like it was time to end her relationship with this guy because their views on life, God, and kids were complete opposites. So we talked to her about God's stance on things and she was totally in. Now we're just waiting to see what happens. Also she super badly wants to get baptized and is currently scheduled for May 27th!!!! So pray for her!
We found another awesome person this week as well! We were doing some tracting and we saw a member outside of her house doing some yard work so we figured why not ask her (Sister Bauer) who we should visit on her street. As we were talking to her a young girl walked by and SIster Bauer said "Hey Trinidy! How're you?" Trinidy (age 14) walked over and we talked with her for like 20 minutes with Sister Bauer, we showed her the Prince of Peace video from Easter, and she loved it! She thought it was so cool. So we invited her to church and she said she was in! Then on Saturday Sister Bauer hooked us up with a church tour with Trinidy and we had an awesome church tour where we taught the Restoration and Baptism, and she totally wants to get baptized!
It was super funny during the church tour she told us that
her mom said that Mormons all have 2
wives, and her response to her mom was "Okay! I'm okay with that!"
She also read us a text from her brother that said that he was okay for her
going to whatever church she wanted as long as it made her happy. Also she
introduced herself to a member of the bishopric as the newest member of the
church. She is totally into the church and has absolutely loved it! Then last
night (Sunday) we had a lesson at the Bauer's home with the mom there. We re-taught
the Restoration (for the mom) and invited Trinidy to be baptized on May 27th!
With her mom's permission of course and the mom (Tina) said that would be okay
as long as Trinidy wanted to!! So Trinidy is also going to be baptized this
month! It was so awesome! Tina seems fairly interested but she's kinda reserved
right now. Hopefully as we continue to teach Trinidy she'll start to open up

That's about it for the week! Love you all!
