You are not alone

"You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you...He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you, because you are His Him earnestly, and you will find Him" -Pres Uchtdorf

Garry gets baptized!!

     Well this week was pretty good I guess. Just a typical normal week except for on Saturday when Garry GOT BAPTIZED!! If you don't remember Garry he is someone that Elder Boehmer and I worked with a lot to help him and when I left we set a date for June 6th and just before I left he had quit smoking. I was able to go to the Baptism with Elder Samis, who is serving in the same ward as me and he found Garry when he was serving in Clearbrook. So just on that this week is a pretty amazing week. It was also really good to see Elder Kelly and Elder Boehmer.

      Besides that this week has been really good. We were able to teach a lot more lessons. One of our investigators, Janet, finished reading  the Book of Mormon on Saturday and she told us that she is 96% sure that she wants to be baptized! Which is pretty awesome. She just has a concern that she doesn't understand why bad things happen to people if God is a loving merciful God. She has come a long way from when she first sat down with the missionaries because at first she didn't even believe in God and now she is really close to baptism. We also saw Gus this week who is an investigator that we have been team teaching over the last few weeks and he is really awesome. He has a baptismal date for June 28th and loves coming to church and knows the Church is true but just needs to quit smoking and he can be baptized at anytime. We have some really awesome people that we are teaching right now that have been prepared and are growing in the Gospel.
      Surrey has been really awesome and has really been something that I needed to help me get out of my shell and my comfort zone and to really rely on the Lord and trust that He will help me. That is when we are most successful as missionaries, when we are completely relying on the Lord and trusting that if we do what He has asked us to do that we will help our brothers and sisters to find the Gospel to come unto Christ. Sorry for not emailing last week I just forgot to and didn't remember until last Tuesday so sorry. Well I hope your week has been as great as mine!
