"This has been a pretty awesome week!! Our investigator, Karen, is getting baptized on July 5th! She is like the coolest lady ever! The area is finally starting to pick up and it's actually sky rocketing!! Heavenly Father is blessing our path with His Elect! The true happiness and joy you feel when an investigator keeps their commitments and accepts the invitation to be baptized out weighs the hard and frustrating times a million to one!
The Lord is pouring down miracles like rain! They are so cool to see and be apart of! On Tuesday, Elder Johnson came on exchanges with me. We were walking through a ghetto part of our area on our way to see an investigator. This guy, Moses, about 25 years old was walking his dog. We started talking to him and told him that we love to hep people come closer to the Savior and feel His love. Moses said, "What about bad people?" he explained that he has substance abuse problems and that it feels good while he's doing it, but after, it's like an open wound. Elder Johnson and i began to testify. Right when we said, "Moses, I can testify in the name of Jesus Christ that..." he looked down and interrupted with a chuckle. I thought he was just mocking us, but we continued to testify of our Savior. Right then, Moses looked back up with tears streaming down his face. He asked in what way he could come closer to the Savior right now. it was one of the coolest experiences of my mission!
And with all these miracles happening, Heavenly Father of course has a sense of humor and decided that i needed to be transferred... Haha So on Wednesday i'll be heading up to Eureka! Actually, i'll be in Arcata, but in the Eureka Zone. It is up in all the Redwoods and i'm so excited! I'm serving in a YSA (young single Adult) branch. And i live in Humbolt County. Some fun facts for ya... Most of the weed in the USA comes from Humbolt county. I'm serving at a college there. And there main growing season is starting up right now! so things could be interesting in these next few months haha:)
But anyways... I hope all is well with everyone! I couldn't be doing better. I have been blessed beyond comprehension in every way imaginable. Keep the faith, know that Heavenly Father loves you and Keep on Keepin' on!! I love you all, have a great week!!"
