Well I hope everyone had a happy 4th!! We were able to go to a BBQ party for FHE with the YSA on Monday night and it was so great to get to know all of the members and have fun with them!! We had a great
district meeting on the 4th and took pictures afterwords. Over all it was a great day as well!!
First, Kyle. So we initially taught kyle a couple weeks ago and set him with a baptism date and everything and it was such an awesome lesson! We could really tell that he was so ready to make such a change in his life and couldn't wait to get baptized!! Well after that, he didn't show up to the next lesson we had and he just dropped off the face of the Earth. Like, his phone was disconnected, someone who lived at what his address was said he didn't live there any more, he wasn't answering his friend's facebook messages, nothing. Literally
just gone. Well we have been praying and praying for him, that missionaries would find him where ever he is and that he is okay. Well his friend called us this week and said that Kyle finally messaged him back on Facebook! He said that he was in rehab. At first when he said that, I was like "man that's what we expected. Something to do with drugs. Man!" But hold that thought, because he told us that he entered himself into rehab because he wanted to be entirely clean before he gets baptized. That makes the story way cooler, right??? Right. :) so it's been really hard to communicate with him, but I know that God answered our many prayers and has been watching over Kyle because he has bigger plans for him in his life :)
We are still teaching Robbie and he is doing so great! Always so excited. To learn more when we come over and he is so excited to get baptized :)
This week I have read a lot in Alma and it is talking a lot about missionary work, like how Alma's sons go with him to preach the gospel in other lands and such. It is just really amazing to think that missionary work is something that has been going on for a suuuuper long time, and it is so important. I am so privileged to be a part of this great work! It is amazing to see the miracles and the blessings that God brings to his children's lives. There are so many of us, but He loves us each individually and personally. How amazing is that?!!
I love you all and I hope you have a fantastic week!
