|My companion doesn't like my driving|
Well this week has definitely been interesting! We haven't been able to work as much this week, because my companion was sick from Wednesday to Sunday! But, we received so many blessings, and our investigators are all progressing. Heavenly Father knows that we want to work hard, and so He has definitely been pouring out the blessings.
We found SEVEN new investigators this week which is absolutely crazy to me. We are obviously doing something right! Four of them are a family, where the mother texted us asking if we could come over. They used to be investigators, but the previous missionaries stopped visiting them. The whole family knows that the church is true, and wants to be baptized. But, they first have to get a divorce finalized so that they can get married. We are praying hard that the divorce will happen soon so that we can see these baptisms happen!
The other 3 are family members also. The mother was the first person interested, but then her kids also wanted to learn. We had our second lesson with them on Sunday, and it went great! They were asking so many great questions, and they told us that they could feel the Spirit! One said the sweetest prayer ever, where he blessed Sister Allen and I, and our families. They already wanted to know what the second lesson was, and he says that he knows that this message will help him to become a better husband and father!

We also have a baptism planned for this Saturday. Our investigator will be having his interview tonight, and then hopefully will be baptized the 20th. His wife also accepted a date for baptism the 27th, the week after!! When she accepted it, I pictured them being sealed together for time and all eternity as a family. I am so excited for them!

We have also started teaching English in our church building. The first time, 19 people came! It is really fun teaching and helping people learn. They all love the class, and are very impressed that these young adults are teaching them. Every class, one lady asks if we can stay for 2 or 3 hours instead of one! It is such a fun experience.
I am loving the work out here, even though it is hotter than Hades. It just means we get free water :). Thank you for all of your prayers, emails, and love! I have the best family and friends!!
