Our 9 year old on-date, Tyler, didn't come to church this week, which means that we have to move his date back a Saturday. That was a bummer, because we really wanted to contribute to the zones goal for June. But life will go on. Probably.
We met an awesome guy named Joe this week. He's a super friendly older Hispanic guy, and he's got that glow about him that people have when you know that they will eventually get baptized. Any missionaries out there that know what I mean? He's very put together and not crazy, which is pretty cool. And the entire time we were talking to him, he was saying things like "I really feel like it's time I figure out why I'm here" and "when I saw you guys, I knew that you had answers for me" and "please baptize me today." That last one wasn't verbally expressed, but missionaries are also mind readers, so yeah. We are so excited to teach him.
We had some funny moments this week, like when we called the Zillah Elders during a prayer that they were having with an investigators and they accidentally answered. We didn't know that they were praying, so throughout the prayer a faint "HELLLOOOOOO ZILLAAAH. COME IN ZILLAH. DO YOU READ ME." was heard. haha.
An investigating family of 11 that moved to Mabton recently moved back to Sunnyside. so we will start teaching them soon. Aw yeah.
Between cherry season and all the work to do, we are being fed--both literally and spiritually. The lower valley is on fire!
Peace and Blessin's!
