March 21 and 28 2016 Letters

Trying to get caught up on the blog.....  Start with the March 21 letter including a picture of Elder Burnside with a investigator's new dog.

I am glad to hear all is going well. I hope everything works out with Brandon. That is crazy it is your last pinewood derby, you know you will secretly miss it haha. Janelle's baby shower should be fun, we went to one this week that was enjoyable, and had really good food :)
That's too bad you weren't feeling well, but I hope you are doing better now.  Our week was pretty good. Itzia went to the court again and is now going to have a hearing on April 18th for them to get married. So that is good, but it sucks we have to wait that long to get her baptized. We had a good lesson with Rammy. He is progressing slowly but surely.  We had a lesson about prayer, and talked about praying about baptism.  He said. A prayer for us at the end of the lesson which was a first.  So he is opening up and doing good.  They were filming a tv series from the movie Training Day with Denzel Washington in our area. So we walked through and saw a couple of the stars. One of the actresses came up and asked us if we were real. We were all like, uhh... Yeah. And so she started telling us about her Mormon friends and she actually knew a ton about our beliefs. So that was cool.
Then on Sunday our investigator Timothy came to church which was really cool because he had kind of just disappeared and he is really solid. We taught him the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of Wisdom afterwords and it went really well. He is really solid to be baptized if he can just resist the temptations of the Word of wisdom for the next two weeks. But he is super cool so it was really exciting. But yeah that was our week. I love you guys and hope you have a great week!!

And the March 28th Letter.  Start with pictures of investigator Timothy.

I am glad you are doing good. Sounds like you had all your meetings go well, I hope your ones this week go well too. Sounds like you all are having a great vacation.  Considering you almost forgot too email me lol. But everything is going well over here too.
We took Timothy to the VC, and he has been doing good with the Word of Wisdom. He is good to go for April 10th! But it was cool to see the spirit touch him so powerfully,that was the happiest I have ever seen him! He felt it so strong, that he brought his 9 year old cousin Jovann, and now he will be baptized with him on April 10th too! He is super excited to be baptized, and just absolutely loved primary. So we are excited for them, they are super solid. So that is going really well.  We had a lesson with Rammy this week. We did it all about prayer and shared our experiences about prayer, and watched a  video called Origin. We read 2 Nephi 32, and at the end we got him to pray in front of us, which was a big step. But he hasn't prayed as much as we would have liked when we followed up. But we recommitted him and he is praying about baptism now.  
Sorry this letter is short, I am running out of time, and can't think of much else that happened this week, It was mostly just fortifying those that we are teaching. But I love you guys and hope you have a great rest of vacation and a great week!!
