May baptismal date kami!

So lets just say I think this last week was one of the hottest in my life. Every time I went to bed I'd wake up and my sheets were soaked.  It was terrible! The fans were blowing hot air so there was really nothing you could do to cool down so it was good to get out of the house that is basically a brick oven and get out to work. 

One day this last week we decided to go teach a Nanay where every time we go talk to her she hides her cigarettes.  So we show up at her house and find out she isn't home, but her grandchild, Jon Michael, is home.  We talk to Bro. Michael and find out his uncle is Brother Danny, our Ward mission leader.  We talk to him, teach him, and then set up a return appointment.  When we came back for the return appointment he'd read the whole pamphlet we gave him, had come to church, and he had a lot of notes about what he read.  After the lesson, we challenged him to baptism on May 24.

It was probably the best Sunday in Ramon by far.  There were a lot of people who attended sacrament and we had a whole less-active family return and also an Antone who has been less active for years and then on top of that an investigator!

Mom, after I read your last letter about being a missionary, I really thought about it and then I applied it.  I went on splits this week with Elder Mccuasland again and I think it was the best splits I've had with him by far.  We talked to a lot of people and while talking to them, Elder Mccuasland asked me "Do you know these people?"  It was probably some of the best lessons I've ever taught because I just acted like myself even though I had no idea who these people were.  After the lessons people were feeding us and it was just super sick!  (good)

One funny thing that happened this week, we were interviewing a girl for baptism in another area when we asked her a question about what a prophet is and why they are important.  Right as we finished asking the question her little brother runs in the room who just finished getting interviewed and yells "hah hindi nya alam yan!" Or in English "hah she doesn't know that!" it was freaking funny and then he runs out.  

I told them we were going to pray and got a pic real quick!

Housing couple came by and dropped off some bug killer.  We went to town and the next morning there was seven more!

Well love you all!
