Update time! June 6, 2017

Hey Everyone!

Hope y'all have had a great week!

We went to see Robert one of the people who came to church last week.
He asked, "Do you have an extra Book of Mormon? I lost mine." Heck
yes!!! He was telling us things he thought were great about the church
and the people. He said he loves that it's so simple. For a while I
struggled to have that mind-set. I've always had a bad habit of making
things more complicated than they need to be. But it doesn't have to
be that way! The gospel is simple! Don't overthink it! As long as
you're doing the little things everyday that keep your testimony
strong, don't worry about all of the little details.

We met with Susan yesterday and she's been reading the Book of Mormon
like she said she would! Yay! We showed the video, "He Lives" and the
spirit was so strong she cried a lot! She said it was a good reminder
because she's been feeling really lonely lately. All of her kids live
far away and she loved being reminded that Christ is always here with
us. We were so glad we stopped by.

Unfortunately there is some bad news. We need to move Alyssa's baptism
date but we don't know what day to move it to yet. Her parents are
divorced so David is her dad and Tracy is actually her step-mom. Her
birth mom lives in Oklahoma and she asked Alyssa to come stay with her
for a month. We don't know what day she's going to be back, but if
everyone would PLEASE keep her in your prayers! We really hope
everything will work out!

Thank you for praying for our goal as a mission of 100 baptisms by the
end of July! Right now our mission has 92 dates set! That's amazing!
We are so grateful for everyone praying for our goal! It's been a huge
testimony builder of prayer! Thank you thank you a thousand times!

Hope y'all have a fantastic week! You're amazing and I pray for you
all the time!
