8 July 2013

Hi family,

It’s been a really busy week!!! 

We got a referral last Sunday, we went to go contact it Tuesday.  It turns out the referral was actually really interested, it’s an older couple that lives by a member, Elwood and Caroline!  They are the nicest people in the world!!!!  We ended up teaching the restoration and the plan of salvation and the word of wisdom.  They asked all the questions that led us to teaching about it.  It really went well!  We are meeting with them Wednesday afternoon.  I’m really excited about it!!!

We went on exchanges with the zone leaders, I went with Elder Wadsworth.  He has only been out around a year but it was cool.  We saw a lot of miracles though.  The first one was that we were walking to an appointment and it fell through so we started walking the streets looking for people to talk to.  We saw this man named Juan and started talking and all of the sudden he started crying and asked us for help, he wants to get closer to God.  So we told we could and how he could.  Then about an hour later we had the same sort of situation happen.  We were walking around trying to find someone to talk to and all of the sudden this lady yelled help me!!!  At first I thought she was getting jumped or something like that, but then we noticed that she was crying and sitting on her front porch.  So we asked her what she needed help with.  She told us that she needed to be baptized and that she knew that we were a good church so we should do it, so we taught the restoration and told her we could do it.  She was so happy and so was I!!!!

We just got a referral from another set of elders today.  They had been teaching this lady. Jackie for the past 4 months, she had been coming to church and been reading the Book of Mormon, she is getting baptized on the 27th of this month!!  I’m really excited about it all, that was a huge blessing!!!

I also found out that some other elders in the district will be having a baptism on the 27th, so I get to perform a baptismal interview!!!  It was really cool to hear about it!!

Well other than that not too much has happened!!  I love you all and hope you had a great 4th of July!!!!!!!!!

Elder Garrett
