"Fasting Brings Miracles"

Good Afternoon Everyone,

We had a crazy, amazing Zone Conference week.  Zone conference was great.  It was focused on developing Christlike attributes--faith, diligence, and obedience.  As always the spirit was very strong.  Interviews with President Mehr were great as well.

We are still working with the young man named Jason.  He wants to be baptized so we are excited to keep teaching him.  He has been there for the fun house meetings I keep talking about and he loves it.  He even came to church with the Deonarinesinghs.  He is still reading the Book of Mormon.  Brother Patrick is doing great as well.  He finished his no cigarette chart.  He as gone over 60 days without rum and 30 days without cigarettes.  We celebrated with ice cream.  This time he didn't get rum and raisin.  Progress :)

We got stuck in the mud one afternoon.  Luckily some nice random guys came and got us unstuck and drove away.  We didn't even get a chance to say thank you.

We had a great house meeting with the Book of Mormon as always.  This one was about Ether 8 and the Law of Chastity.  We turned it into a play.  Sister Herrick was the narrator and we had some of the kids choose a character out of the hat.  One of the Deonarinesingh boys got to be the daughter of Jared so it was funny.  Then Brother Deonarinesingh explained what the law of chastity is.

We got to do some service at the Deonarinesinghs.  They are still working on their house so we helped pack bricks and pull nails out of boards.

We had the opportunity to fast as a mission for the end of year goal of 600 baptisms.  We invited the members to join.  It was very spiritual.  Fasting brings miracles.

Miracle of the Week:  We have been struggling to find new investigators these last two weeks.  Last week we only had one.  On Saturday we were pretty sad but we knew the Fast would help.  We went out and worked hard and we found two great families to work with.  On Sunday we found another.  We are very grateful for that blessing.

Thanks for everything.  I love being a missionary.
