Expect the Unexpected - August 17, 2015

Last Monday we went fishing with the Lewis' for FHE. It was so fun! When we pulled up a couple was getting ready to leave. They caught this giant catfish and let us hold it. It was so heavy and pretty disgusting. It was definitely an experience to remember. We didn't catch anything but today we went and I was the only one to catch something. It was a really small big mouth bass and they hook wasn't in all way or something but I was lifting it up and if fell down and back into the water. But I caught it and was holding it for a minute! It was a lot of fun today but really hot! 

Tuesday was a baptism for a Emma. She turned 8 a couple weeks ago. We were asked to come to the baptism to share a video and our testimonies. It was really cute. Luckily the lights didn't go out at this baptism. Our investigator Tyler did come to it so that was really awesome! He was able to see what our baptisms are like and was able to feel the spirit. It was amazing. We actually had a lesson with Tyler last night and he committed to a baptism date! It is so amazing! We are having FHE evening with the Lewis' again tonight so we are going to show him a cool video. We just have to decide which one :) haha! but it will be great! He has been reading on his own and with his family! The Book of Mormon is so true people! You just have to read and pray about it! 

I love being able to teach those that are prepared to receive the gospel. You can tell it makes such a difference in their lives. They are ready to act upon things and are so accepting. It makes such a difference in teaching those that are prepared vs those that aren't at this time in their lives. 

We went to the west part of our boundaries on Wednesday to a town called Fair Play. We were trying to find less actives. We had no luck. No one was home. We didn't talk to anyone all day. Let's just say it was a really long day. That night was better though. We had a lesson with one of our recent converts. 

Thursday we had interviews with President Loveland and Zone Training. It was good to be able to get to know him better. The Lovelands are really great. We have much to learn from them. :) 

Nothing crazy has happened but small little miracles happen all the time. It is great to search for them and see how apparent they are in our lives. 

Sorry this is such a short letter. It has been such a long week! Not sure what happened to all of our time though. We did have some great lessons with investigators this week. I love you all and hope you have a great week!
