Hail Mary, Full Court Press, Grand Slam!

The District
Man this week has been real good. We had our last district meeting with Hermana Huhem. She was a very good missionary and served with all her might, mind, and strength!
Anyways, we didn't quite make our goal for people committed for baptism, in fact we were 11 people off. However, it was really cool to see the whole Zone really focusing on baptism and bringing people into the fold. Keep those prayers a rollin' in for those prepared people, we definitely still need them.

We had exchanges this week. I was able to go over to Spanaway this week with Elder Oliva! I love that Elder. Anyways we worked really hard and we even got to go teach their super awesome investigator named Alla Marshall. I got to be there for her first lesson. It was a pass off lesson so we taught along side a senior missionary couple from Tacoma. Alla talked a lot about the struggles in her life and the hardships she has been through. In fact I think she talked most of the time we were there. We were able to slip in a few scriptures to bring the spirit more fully. Elder Oliva shared one and then I shared one. My scripture was on baptism. Found in 2 Nephi 31:17 after we read the scripture we invited her to be baptized right at that moment. She said she would and committed to a date! After we taught her she said the closing prayer she prayed to for God to help her be ready for her baptism! That was such a cool experience.

On the Firgrove side of things! We have an investigator commited for baptism! Albert is committed for June 24th. Amazing, he is a pretty difficult investigator but we were finally able to bring the spirit and get him on date! Wahoo! We also invited him to come to church this Sunday as well.

We also had dinner with the Martin's this week we invited them to come to Church, but they completely flopped on coming to church. Dang it again!

On Sunday we were super excited for Albert to attend church! We even waited outside for him, and freaking table flip he didn't come! Ugh what the crap. Albert just come to church it will be so good! We stopped at his later in the day but no one was home. I hope he makes it next week.

Lastly skyping the family this week was super sweet! It was so fun to see so many of you again! Especially with a bunch of my cousins there. Thanks a bunch Thayne fam, and both Grandma's and Grandpa's. Love all of you!

Have a wonder filled week! With many blessings to yuh all.

The drink that TRUE AMERICAN's drink.

I forgot to tell you guys but we are trying to teach this Iraqian, except he speaks very basic english so we are trying to learn Arabic... or find a translator. From what we understand though is he really likes the Book of Mormon and has been taking notes on it. He even fed us some Iraqian food....which then proceeded to wreck my system for the rest of the day. His name is Salih and he is a very prepared man!
