June 15, 2014

Hey everyone,

This week has been a really good week. We have been retaining investigators pretty well as well as finding a few new ones. We actually ended up finding someone new by accident once. We went to the house where we thought the tailor who made my new shirts lives, but after we knocked on the door, someone else came out. It actually turned out to be pretty great because he told us he was busy and what day we could come back without us really even having to say anythning. He is a really nice man, and already believes in a lot of correct doctrine, but he tends to dominate the lessons a little bit too much. He is really nice though, and seems like he has a lot of potential.

Tatay  (The man who gave us shelter from the rain) is progressing really well too. He didn't come to church this week because of his job with the Goa Search and Rescue. He had something he had to do apparently because of the fiesta, and the Stake conference times didn't work out as well with his schedule. He seems really interested to read the Book of Mormon though, and so I think he will be able to gain a testimony very quickly. I am really excited for him.

We were also able to get to our most progressing investigators who dropped off the face of the earth after getting a job for two weeks. Everyone including her is now set up with a baptismal date for July 26. Should be an awesome day if we can pull it off. She is really nice though, and has been investigating the church for a long time, so I don't think that there will be any problems with her baptism because she seems really ready.

I am so thankful for all of the blessings we have received, are receiving and will receive in our work here.

Love you tons!

Elder Benjamin Merrill
