Really great week (week 50)

We had a really great time this past week. We are keeping busy and finding those that have been prepared to receive the gospel. Looks like it's starting to get warm again ,but at least it's not that humid. 

The recent convert family the Acostas is doing really well. We had family home evening with them on Monday and talked about the plan of salvation. We were able to answer questions and help them understand things they hadn't grasped yet. It's a lot of fun teaching them because they ask questions and give input. It helps learning how to involve people into the discussion. That's why it's so important to teach people and not lessons. When we teach lessons it's almost impossible to get people involved. 

On Tuesday I went o exchanges with Elder Allsop here in Sunnyside. It was a bunch of fun and we got to teach 4 lessons. We got to teach on of our investigators who has been trying to find out if he should be baptized. He has been coming to church and really enjoys it. We have been working with him to answer his questions and help him in his search for the truth. We have been talking about the Holy Ghost and how it helps us find our answers and the many other roles it can play in our lives. We were also blessed when on Sunday the two speakers both spoke on the Holy Ghost. It shows how much Heavenly father loves each of his children and wants to answer the questions they have. He does a lot to make sure we know the truth. We get to see his again tomorrow and help him answer more of him questions. 

The is so much that has been going on that it's hard to remember all of it. We are on the last fully week of the transfer and it is a little hard to imagine. Doesn't feel like I've been in Sunnyside for that long. We'll see what transfers see this Saturday.  It sounds like everyone has been having a great summer so far. Hopefully the rest of the summer is just as great if not better.

Love you,
Elder Boren

 Elder Buchanan had his birthday this last Friday. We went to a fancy restaurant thanks to our awesome branch mission leader.
