Happy 4th of July + Miracle

I don't even know where to start! So many things happened this week.

We had a great lesson with this investigator named Charlie (20) and he fasted and came to church this Sunday! It was his first step of actual progress and it was neat to see. The ward fellow-shipped him well.

I got to use a lot of my Spanish this week! We taught a lesson to the Ruiz family on the El Libro De Mormon in Spanish and read from 1 Nefi 1 ! I actually did a little teaching and we had a member that spoke Spanish so he translated what I couldn't say. I am getting pretty good at contacting people in Spanish and getting a return appointment. Then we just bring someone to help translate haha.

Miracle of the week! : While out visiting on Thursday I was out with one of the young men that is in high school and we contacted this family that was out on their porch. Turned out to be one of the best contacts I have ever made. His name is Ryan and hers is Regina. Ryan is way cool and we had a good discussion about Jesus Christ. At the end he was like "Yeah you know I would like to learn more." Then, the next day he texts us a super long message about how he looked into our beliefs after we left and found a lot of the same things he already believes. He said that he found differences in belief/lifestyle, but those differences are things he has been wanting to change his whole life. He told us he wants to come to church next Sunday as well! I cannot even explain how much joy I felt as I read that message. Ryan is so prepared by the Lord to accept the gospel! His family too! I am so excited to be able to teach them and it was a blessing/miracle that we found them. This truly is the Lord's work and He led us to them for a reason.

Cool note of the week: Went up to Sun Valley to greet people as they came to church, and there was 517 people that came! Tons of people on vacation for the 4th of July!

Love y'all!  'Sweet is the Work'

P.S. Also yesterday we ate lunch with a family in Carey and they had a lot of people over. One of them was this guy that is Youtube famous for playing the violin! His name is Rob L??? Can't remember his last name. He was super cool though and we talked about violin since I used to play, he graduated from Rice University in Houston in fact!  Best part: He played for all of us! It was the most legit violin playing I have ever heard. He played Radioactive, Hello, Thunderstruck, Thriller, James Bond, Hallelujah, some others and finished with How Great Thou Art. Also played Ghostbusters! and he releases that video this Wednesday, so we got the sneak peak.
