Through Christ you can do all things!

What a week. I can't believe that it is already pday and we get our transfer letters on Friday and I am excited to see what changes are going to happen for the next transfer. We are continuing to be blessed by the Lord in this area and I love seeing how this is truly His work. We decided to go through our former investigator list and we found two new investigators from it and set up two more appointments to people who are really interested in learning more about the gospel. We are also taking Mia to the temple visitor center this Wednesday and we are so pumped! This week we invited Arem to be baptized and he said he would but wants to watch a baptism first and then he will commit to a date. So that is really exciting and hopefully we will have Chris on date before the end of the week. July is going to be a month of miracles. We also saw a really awesome miracle yesterday. We were prompted to go to a potential and we went but they were having a huge party so we started to tract and we saw this lady go to lock her door and we walked past but then the spirit told us to go back. She is really interested in the plan of salvation and we are going to see her this weekend. This area is blooming. It's crazy how strict obedience and hard work does that :)  

We also met again with Jeffery and it was so cool. He has met with missionaries in the past but hasn't really committed to anything. He also hasn't opened up at all to missionaries before. We just spent like ten minutes laughing with him and getting down to his level. He is fourteen so it's easy to talk to him because Tyler is the same age and they are very similar. He told us a lot about how he wants to come closer to Heavenly Father and make his parents proud of him. He loves coming to our church because it makes him really happy. So we will continue to work with him because he is amazing and needs to  be baptized. 

We are also getting a lot of referrals from our ward members. One of them asked us for a Book of Mormon to give to a classmate and she has been reading it and loving it so we are going to see her this week as well. We also got to go to the temple this week. And it was really amazing. I just love being in the temple it really is a place of peace and learning. I also went on exchanges with my sister training leaders this week and it was a good stress free day....well as much as possible for missionaries. Not much more has happened this week. Last pday we went exploring down in Portland so that was pretty cool. I love being a missionary and I love helping people. Oh we did meet this man named Jerry and we helped him take out his black berry bushes so now we are all scratched up but he wants to meet with us to talk about the gospel. Service is awesome. 

I hope everyone has a great week and remember that through Christ you can do all things.
