Lots of Work

I'm loving it here.  

We had a really great week.  There were a few ups and downs but it ended with a big up.  Elder Dunford and I worked like animals this week finding and teaching as many people as we could.  We were blessed to find a few new families who seem excited to learn more about the restored church. It’s always fun to teach about the restoration and catch the interest of the people. This message is so unique and special.

Jeremias was the man who told us that he would be baptized 100 times if he needed to do it right. Well he was excited until Wednesday, but then all of a sudden he gave up on the idea of his baptism. It was a bummer but we kept teaching him and preparing him like he would be baptized anyways. (Missionaries rarely take "no" for an answer.)  Yesterday we had a special sacrament meeting about genealogy and the spirit of Elijah.  After the meeting, Jeremias came up to us with tears in his eyes and asked us, "Is it too late, or can I be baptized today?" Of course you can!  He went home during the middle hour and grabbed a towel. It was a great day.  Miracles happen so often.  Hopefully his wife and kids will follow his example now.

I love you,

Elder Marsh
