We got a new investigator this week and he accepted the invitation to be baptized! He is going to be baptized at the end of July. He is divorced and has a 6 year old daughter. He came as a member referral and we taught him in the members home. He is really excited to be baptized and has been telling people about his baptismal date. He came to church and when people asked him if he was visiting he told them he planned on coming from now on. Usually investigators don't drop out of the sky like this guy, but it's exciting when they do.
I saw a good size dust storm this week! It happened on Thursday. Apparently it was on the news. I got a couple pictures of it in the distance. We didn't have a good view of it, but you could see the cloud of dust. We just went inside the church and waited till it blew over. It actually didn't last that long which was good, because we had people we wanted to visit. I still want to see a really big dust storm. If you're wondering we didn't really do anything exciting for the 4th of July. It was a pretty normal day except we had to go in at 7 just for safety reasons.
I'm so grateful for the chance I have to be on my mission. I feel like I'm learning and growing so much. I really believe that when we bear our testimony it grows and I'm grateful to do that every day. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that through him we can be cleansed from sin and return to live with our Heavenly Father. I'm grateful for the peace the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings to our lives. I love you all so much! Thank you for all of your prayers.
