Finishing Touches

We had another great week last week. On Saturday, Trisha was finally baptized after many months of being taught by the by the missionaries. It was a lovely baptismal service and a decent amount of members were able to attend.  We were are proud of her and her decision to get baptized. We know that the Lord will bless her and her family because of her obedience to the commandments of God. 

Joanne and John Rey were experiencing  some family problems last week, so they decided to reschedule their baptisms to June 10. They are still preparing for their baptisms and are set on and excited to be baptized in June. 

On Sunday the Flor family was able to attend church for the first time as a family. Sister Flor's daughter has already attended a few times, but this was the first time that they were all able to attend. As a family, they have been reading the Book of Mormon every night. They are a solid investigator family. They are all excited and anticipating their baptisms on the last week of June.

The SJ North zone is doing well. Elder Rasmussen has started working again and is almost fully recovered from his boils. All the companionships have been working hard and finding.  We have no concerns or problems to report of in our zone. 

I forgot to tell you, last week we went duck pin bowling. It is pretty much bowling but the balls and pins are smaller. The ball was about the size of a shot-put and did not have any finger holes. It was super fun and cheap! The best part was that most of the missionaries became bored after a hour; So by the end, it was just the serious players going over and over again while the others just watched. It was a Blast! 

I have been pretty busy filling out all the exit-day questionnaires and making BRs for all my friends in the mission. 

That is pretty much all I can think of.. The rest of our week was pretty normal. Proselyting in the heat and sweating. Gotta love it!

I hope you all have a wonderful week! 

mahal ko po kayong lahat,

Elder Nielsen
