Aloha! January 31, 2010

This was probably one of the most solid weeks of our whole transfer! We did some work this week, it was good! First off we went up to a place in our area called Sunset to just do some tracting and stuff because there is choke non members up there. Not too much success with that but it was a lot of fun and we had a drunk guy crying after we got done sharing a message with him. He wants to change but has been messed up his whole life, pretty sad but miracles can happen. Not expecting very much outta him but thats okay we still just do work!

Last night we had a lesson with a Tongan that just got here like a month ago and he is getting baptized on Feb. 19th! He had a lot of problems with the church before but we resolved all his concerns and he is solid now! He especially liked the fact that we do baptisms for the dead. We are so blessed with that knowledge and that ability, what an amazing thing to have the restored gospel on the earth and to have Temples dotting the Earth! Don't take the temple for granted ya'll, I know that we see them everywhere we go in Utah but go often, not only will it bless your life but more importantly the lives of others in the Spirit World that are just waiting for us to pick up the slack and go to work!

On Thursday we had a lesson with another family that was amazing! This family had a couple concerns and cancelled on us probably 15 straight times but they kept re-scheduling so thankfully Tuih and I never gave up on them. They will be getting married shortly and than he and the daughter will be baptized right after! This work is sweet! Don't ever give up on anyone, I have learned that lesson. Don't ever let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved. I know this gospel is true, I thank you all for the prayers and examples you have set for me. Love you all!
