91st week in Spokane
It just doesn't slow down up here in deer park! This week we were teaching like crazy! It's the most lessons I've had in a week in a long time! It has been amazing! Everyone is still pretty solid! Our lesson with Richard on Wednesday went through and we were able to invite him at the very beginning of the lesson to be baptized on July 9th and he said yes! Ed is doing awesome! He is constantly quoting scripture to us from the Book of Mormon during our lessons. He has been a big help to Emil because he will teach him while we aren't there. He will be getting baptized this weekend! We've been teaching a guy named John, and this week we were able to focus on baptism. He's made a whole lot of changes in his life and he is finally ready! So we invited him to be baptized on July 16! On Tuesday we went on exchanges with the assistants and I was able to go down to Spokane to the 15th ward for a day! It was pretty fun trying to see all the people that I taught when I was there. The 15th and 22nd wards were my first area that I covered when I first got to the mission! So that was fun. With the countryman family we were able to teach them and we were able to find out one of the main concerns and so we taught to that and then they did a fast and so did we on Wednesday and they said that they received their answer! So we are way excited about them and are praying that they won't get cold feet for July 9th. Its amazing too because in the zone right now, there are eight people preparing to be baptized on July 9th! We were able to do some service this week.. my favorite! We split up about three cords of wood!! It was awesome!! Alright, so last night, we were at a members house eating dinner and he is from Cambodia so he made us some food from there and it was delicious, its called fa. But then after dinner, he had us try out some hot sauce. Brother Lim has done a whole lot of research to find the hottest sauce in the world and the one that he has is called the bomb! It was insanely hottt!! It was a solid fifteen minutes of straight pain! It was awesome!! They got it all on video, they said that its a tradition that whatever missionary eats at their home has to try it. It was intense!! Well, that was pretty much our week! we are continually being blessed! love ya!
