121 members present!!!!

This week was great! 

It consisted of a training, 2 exchanges, 3 baptisms, 3 confirmations, and a bunch of other great things! Our zone broke the mission record with 121 member presents!!!!! (The previous goal was like 80 something). It was definitely a miracle. Lots of fasting, prayer, and hard work. We had 8 in our area! It was so great! The members are amazing here! 

One member invited H to go with him to the father son camp out, it meant so much to H and his mom! Another member took H to her house so A could watch the relief society conference! It was amazing. The talks were all on keeping your covenants by serving and the member, in the conference offers to walk h to her house to play with her kids. It was amazing! 

The ward is getting so involved with missionary work it is great! They make all the difference. If it weren't for them fellowshipping, offering rides, and testimonies those 3 baptisms would not have happened. The baptism was so great! The spirit was so strong!

 It was amazing to have 3 baptisms for our ward. It was kinda great to have both sets of missionaries having someone baptized and so many of the members there and involved. That is what is supposed to be like, a group effort. Where everyone is reaching out and being Christ's hands by reaching down and lifting up. 

On Sunday we had the 3 confirmations! It was great! And then H bore his testimony! it was amazing! Sister Dycus and I got to teach real quick in combined priesthood and relief society.  It is so great to see how much hope this gospel brings, the Atonement brings. I know that this is Christ's gospel. That His church and authority has been restored!

 I love you all!
