June 19, 2017 - "And he shall turn ... the heart of the children to their fathers..."

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a happy Father's day! This week was another week of missionary work. We went out and talked to a lot of people this week and we had a fun time while we were doing it. This week we really focused with Jacky on trying to get him ready for his baptismal date on the 24th. Unfortunately, he had to work last minute on Sunday and we also ran into some commandment issues, so we will see where we go with him. This week we took Jacques Leon with us to visit some of the Less-Active members and that was fun. For those that don't know, Jacques Leon was baptized in Hollywood when I was being trained, so it is good to take him out with us. :) He wants to go knocking with us this week so we will see how that goes. It should be hilarious. This week miracle-wise we knocked into this old Haitian mommy who most of the time aren't that elect. Older Haitian women usually have their own churches and don't want to change, but this lady was named Bernita and she has been to church twice IN UTAH!! Most Haitians have no idea what or where Utah is but she has been there and been to church as well. Her son is an active member of the church over there, so we are hoping that we will be able to help her progress as well.

On Friday, we were in the biggest thunderstorm I have ever been in! The roads were all flooded in seconds and there was standing water everywhere! The lightning was right over our heads and I got soaked in the 3 seconds it took to get from the church to the car! That was an exciting experience. On the missionary work side of things, we weren't able to teach anyone this week other than Jacky and we weren't able to get anyone to church so that was too bad. One of the days this week, I forgot which, we went and saw a less-active member named Immacula. Right when we visited her we found out that they were moving so we helped them pack up their stuff in the pouring rain. That was fun... Then on Sunday night we went and visited them again because her husband is not a member. So we stopped by and low and behold, she made us food! This was the first time I had Haitian food since I left the Haitian Ward in Palm Beach! It was super good and we were very full! Then we talked with the husband named Makenz and we got to know him and talked about basketball. It was a good time. Hopefully we will be able to help him get baptized!

That was about it for the week, time for a borrowed last thought for Father's Day:

It's called "The Truth about Dads" on LDS.org

I hope you guys have a great week!
