It is good to see, that everyone had a fun time in Atlanta this last week, and that everyone looks so good. Congratulations to James, and to Hannah and Chris.
Well this week was a really good one. Especially with teaching Bubba. He is so cool. We have been able to see a change in his countenance and the Gospel light enter into his life. We just met with him again yesterday, and he is doing good. He feels like he is going to war with Satan everyday now but he know that if he can make it a couple more weeks til his baptism, that the Holy Ghost will help him so much more. I have never seen anyone more happy and excited about the Holy Ghost.
We have another investigator named Shane, that is doing well too. He is a cool kid. And excited to learn more about God, and his relationship with him. It is cool, to see his reaction when we teach him truths that he never knew before. It helps to remind me to never take the gospel for granted.
We continue to teach Anna, and she is making good progress, because she has started to read the Book of Mormon again. Another testimony of the great power of that book. I love it.
This past Sunday was Stake Conference. We had a broadcast from salt Lake, and Elder Perry spoke. He spoke all about missionary work, so we loved it. It was really good, and helped bring into perspective the marvelous work and a wonder the Restoration really is.
Also in yet another story of weird connections. This past week we went down to the mission office for a training for new trainers. When Lo and Behold we run into an Elder Olsen. He asked me if i was indeed Elder Bevan Blake, I told him i indeed was. And then he asked if i was related to a Bevan Blake, who was a bishop in New Jersey. I told him he was my Grandpa. Turns out he was one of his councilors with him. Crazy. And as if that weren't enough, he was at Deborah's Wedding reception because he knows the Ryggs. Well Anyways he says hi to grandma.
Thanks for all that you do. I love you all, and i love this gospel.
