ALOHA!!!!!!!! June 14, 2011

Boy can you say go Mavs!? Take that Lebron I am so juiced that the Heat lost. I am so happy Lebron didn't get his ring, and am happy Dirk finally got his. Its a good day over here in Paradise!

Haha so this week was pretty legit for us. We have a lot of work coming up and we are exicted to get it going. We have been tracting a lot so we have found quite a few investigators, now we just have to sift thru and find the elect. We have found a couple that are pretty solid so we are hoping we will be able to see some success with them. We had a miracle this week with a less active family we tracted into a couple weeks ago. So the mom and oldest daughter are members, but she has a teenage daughter and teenage son who aren't members. They were super stoked to have us come back (more so at first just to feed us, seems like that is all people want to do out here, but I am not complaining). We shared the Restoration with them over this past week and it was super powerful when we taught about Joseph Smith and gave the first vision lesson. Man it was solid and we committed them to come to church and they were down. So they came to church and Elder Larsen and I were speaking and we just rocked it! Everyone was loving it, and especially this family. It was perfect. We went over that night and she told us that she wants to be baptized, and hopefully her brother will be right behind. But what an amazing experience. Elder Larsen and I have been tracting like mad out here and the Lord is placing miracles in our path. I love missionary work man, its the best!

Yesterday we had a big meeting on how we are going to take our mission to the next level and we have a lot of good ideas. Starting August 1st they are going to change the teaching in the MTC to help the missionaries be more in tune teaching with the Spirit. They have taken things right out of PMG and focused on them. They will take these things they learn and than when they get to the field they will learn the lessons from PMG chapter 3. All you missionaries that enter the MTC around that time are lucky. These new missionaries are the ones that are going to take all missions to the next level. We are getting some super solid missionaries now days and it is amazing to see how good they are being so young out.
The work is truly progressing and no unhallowed hand is going to stop it from progressing. I am stoked! Thanks for everything, love you all!
Elder Garritson
