this week is just another great week in the life of a missionary! i love this area and my companions! the work is going great and just continues to do so as well as having joy in the work. we had to move some baptisms back a little bit but it is all good. we currently have 3 set for the 10th of october! pierre had to move his back cuz he didn't come to church yesterday but he is determined to get baptized and i'm ok with that! tim is a stud! he is looking for the standards to live by in the church and i feel like he and i will get along really well. he is someone i am definitely coming back and chillin with and we will be friends for life he is awesome. we had a talk yesterday and he said if he is gonna be baptized he wants to be 100% active in the church. which i wouldn't want him to unless otherwise. he's awesome. he is also taking us to the rays last season game on the 29th! man life is great! the third person is britney. we talked to britney on campus and she has had a hard couple of weeks here at school and really wants the comfort and guidance of religion in her life. this past monday we had a family home evening with the branch at the institute building. president summerhays came and spoke about member missionary work. he then had elder alber and i come up to the front then called up two of the members from the branch and had us teach about the joseph smith story and the first vision as if they were investigators. i know it was a role play but wow i have never felt the spirit so strong. tears were going all over the room and it was just a testimony builder to everyone in that room that joseph smith was a true prophet and that through him the true church was restored on the earth. i have no adequate words to describe the feeling there. i love you all and i love this work!
