WEEK 44- Easter Baptisms and Miracles

What a week!! This week zoomed by like no other, it was crazy...first off....Exchanges,
RAY AND TY GOT BAPTIZED!!  and Easter!! 

I hope you all had a great Easter. Yay!!! We went over to the Hoskinsons in the Ward! And guess what they
had...lamb! Haha so it felt like home;) also I LOVED the video you sent !!!  tell Nana THANK YOU! It was great to see family!!  Monday we had a zone Easter Egg hunt -  actually balloons full of treats…but we had to pop them…now that was funny!

Shout out to the JAY family -'

PS …The Jays are so sweet and sent a huge Easter package!!! So these are
 the chick and bunny squishy things. We love them! Their names are

Ralph(the green chick) and Waldo (the pink bunny) like Ralph Waldo
Emerson. Haha just for fun:)

 This week was full of exchanges. We started Monday night after preparation day and were on
exchanges straight until Friday morning. But it was so good. Such a
week of miracles! The first exchange was great, I was able to go with
sister Nielson and its her first transfer. She's awesome!! She's being
trained by sister Cox!! ( my MTC companion) Wooho. Awesome exchanges with them, then we
had an exchange with the YSA sisters!! Sister Adair(my trainer) and
Sister Harris(sister Freeman's trainer). It was fun to be with our
trainers again and to be able to work! And let me tell ya, we WORKED.
we traded off days with a car  and walked all over Missoula.  We were
tired as all get out but it was a good tired.

Cool miracle with the Zmoleks! Sister Adair and I went by to  say Hi ..and remember R??
The new  step father of the boys?
:) We showed them the bible video of Christ being baptized and talked all about what baptism and
the Holy Ghost are. The spirit was super strong! And Randy opened up
and started asking questions.....long story short, the spirit taught,
we were able to answer his questions with scriptures and Randy asked
if he could get baptized in a river. What?? So cool. It's amazing to
see what the Spirit does when He teaches. And also-miracle--R

somehow got work off and was able to come to church this Sunday for
the first time!! He was able to see the boys be confirmed in sacrament
meeting and stayed ALL 3 hours!! Wow miracles.

And Saturday was Wonderful...a day of wonderful..the baptism!!!!! Holy cow. It's been along road for these boys!
  We did have a little snafu with the programs so there was a little stress there...but we made it with the help of our Elders.
 Long story short…
they haven't seen their father for awhile… The day of the baptism, they met
their father for the first time in over 5 1/2 years. And their father
baptized them. They gained an AMAZING step-mom Jen, an older step
sister, a younger half brother, and 2 sets of amazing grandparents. And with Michelle and her new
wonderful husband R…it was a room full of love and family!
Miracles truly happened this weekend and the hand of the Lord was all
throughout these last few weeks. I feel so incredibly blessed to have
been even just a tiny part of the first few steps of the boys journey.
They're amazing!! Gosh this work is incredible. I love the Lord. I
love this work and I love being on a mission!

I hope you all can treasure family and love  and the love of our Savior.  It’s a good week J
