July 25, 2011 {Email}

We had a great lesson with Douglas after emailing last week! He now has the Book of Mormon and a baptismal date! He is very determined and excited to become a member of this church. It is such a great thing to watch someone be so ready for the gospel and then to see them act on it. We also had another really cool experience this week. We have been teaching Alice since Elder Baraza came and she hadn't really progressed much so finally we told her that she had to really pray to know if Joseph Smith was a true prophet. The next time we came back i was expecting it to be the usual, "I didn't pray" or "I didn't get an answer" but when we asked her she just looked at us and smiled, then said, "It's good." I was not really sure i was hearing her correctly so i asked her, "Wait, what?" She said again, "It's good." She said she knew it was true after she prayed. She also came to church this week for the first time and really enjoyed it. Things like this make everything worth it! Elder Baraza and I went to another part of our area yesterday that is a really nice place. While we were there we saw a bunch of kids dumping some trash into a big swamp that was at the bottom of this steep hill. It was filled with thick trees too. I asked the kids if they have ever gone down there and they all got so scared haha. Then they said there was a BIG! snake in this swamp. Yeah then i was scared too. I want to see the snake really bad though! We will keep walking by there to see ha. Maybe i will get to see that something sweet that i've been waiting for...
