We have been receiving some exciting news these past few days. Although we were trying to shoot for a baptism for this month, we were successful in getting a total of 5 for next month. 4 of them seem very solid. Two of them we recently found as a referral from brother Roades. It was totally awesome. It was like Jesus Christ saying to our companionship, hey I see your are working hard, here are two baptisms. Enjoy.
So for today, we didn't really need to buy stuff for ourselves. We were pretty much set with food for another week. I learned of an idea to get people out of the habit from smoking. It kind of made me think of my aunt. The idea is for the investigators to buy cinnamon flavored toothpaste, and mouthwash, vitamin C, and pure Grapefruit juice. Each has something to trick the mind that it has already got it's nicotine or something like that. It's rather cheap than using drugs to get out of the habit.
We are going to share this idea with the 2 investigators we picked up from a less active family in Airport. All I can say about Airport is that it's full of crazy, and poor people. Slightly crazier than Empire. We usually only go there when we have a ride with a member. Therefore, it saves on biking time, and safer as well. One of them adopted a baby and her whole world right now is to love it. It reminded me of my younger sister with her loving babies and taking care of little children. That right there is the pure love of Christ shining in other people. We shared with them the restoration and they loved it. We continue to keep daily contact with Athena, Jasmine, and the recent convert- Marcus. Their little boy-Marcus 3rd- loved Primary Sunday. They said he was very quiet. They were amazed. He is never quiet.
Lastly, we've got Zone Conference Thursday, so I will be receiving some good enlistment and to hear from President Clark. Funny things was, it's going to be at my Stake Center, so it will be interesting.
With my love for you all,
