Well it’s me again. So crazy week. Not really sure what happened it was super fast. So to begin we had a good week. It rained a little and it was so fun to be out in the rain trying to find people to teach. We had a zone conference wednesday and it was such a good conference. It was from 2-5, which is remarkably short for a zone conference, but it was really fun as it was at the Chapel in my first area! It was super fun to go back to where it all began. haha. It was also President Miles last zone conference. We talked about the prophet and the book of mormon and how we can be a more exactly obedient mission, but being obedient because we love the Lord. It was great. We heard some last words from President Miles and Sister miles. Then we gave them a hug and said goodbye. They leave in about a week. It was so good to hear their last bit of advice, it was about staying on the covenant path and to marry someone that wants to stay on as much as you. It was great and I will really miss them!

Then we had another cool miracle. Our bishop called us, and said our investigator Josh wants to be baptized. His family was taught a while ago and his mom and brother were baptized but he was not. He didn't want to. So it was exciting after a couple of months of coming to church and pondering the decision on his own he wants to be baptized. He is on date for the 30th of June. Cool miracle. To be honest I didn't do anything. Like really I had one lesson with that family. But it is great news! We also had stake conference. Elder Maynes came, which would have been way exciting except that we just had the prophet come. But it was still great to hear from him, he pointed out something during the sunday morning session that I really liked. He said the Lord wants us to be Worthy, not perfect. How many times do we feel that we are inadequate because we aren't perfect? We should embrace it and move forward. He also said everytime we hear the word repentance we should get excited. It was a great conference. But that was about a wrap on our week. We also got to see president Miles again at our stake conference and say goodbye for the very last time. But love you all hope you have a good week!
