Hey squad!

This week was money! Elder Jones and I have been on that diet grind because we are insecure about ourselves so please don't make fun of us!!!!!😌 The work has been amazing lately, the ward is super pumped up about missionary work and they are very willing to help us out, this is how it should be! On Monday we had a lesson with our investigator Josh in the home of some members, the Estes', and it was awesome! The Spirit was super strong!

Our car was in the shop this week so we did a ton of walking and biking which is super hard in our area because everything is pretty far away and there are a ton of hills! But it is good because we got to get out and talk to a ton of people! On Thursday night we were knocking some doors and this lady answered and was super pumped for us to come back! Her name is Cherish and she told us to come back the next day at 4 because she wanted to learn more about our message. She seemed super solid! So the next day we came back with a young man in our ward (Levi) for our appointment with her. There were a lot of people out around her town house and it got pretty awkward while we were standing there waiting for her to answer, one of the ladies outside even said "she's not gonna answer, she never answers the door". Then a 3 year old kid saw us knocking on the door next to his house and said "I'll go get my dad for you!!!" since we knocked on all those doors the night before we were hesitant and said "no bud don't worry about it it's all good!" "No don't worry, I'll get him for you" "No it's ok bud, thanks though!". Sure enough, he went and got his dad who didn't look happy to see us when he opened up the door. He wouldn't even shake our hands when we introduced ourselves.... But he was messing with us, and it turns out that he used to meet with missionaries in the past! He let us right in and we taught him the Restoration! His name is John Joseph. As soon as we got done with the lesson he was freaking out, in his own words he said: "Man this is crazy. The people you just taught me about have the same name as me (referring to John the Baptist and Joseph Smith) and while you were speaking I had those goosebumps, you know? Like those goosebumps that you feel when you know that God or Jesus is in the room with you but you just can't see them. I had those goosebumps 4 times while you guys were speaking!" "John that's the Holy Ghost, that is how you can know what is true!" It was awesome! The Spirit was so strong in the lesson and John already recognizes the Spirit, that's most of the battle! So solid!

Sunday came around and we still had to find another investigator to reach the standard of excellence and we picked up a lady named Eva when we were out working with a member in the ward, Rick. The lesson went really well and she accepted baptism!! Solid! The ward is getting super pumped about the success that we have been seeing, all is well!!

Elder Jones and I have been cooking up some home videos in our spare time out here, so be ready to jump into the missionary life (with some exaggeration haha). I'll send them when they upload.

Anyways, have a good week!!!
