Having a wonderful time in Quincy (week 96)

We have been having just a wonderful time here in Quincy. The members have really good trust in us and really take care us us. The weather has been warming up and the wind has been less of a nuisance. We have however been getting a good amount of rain and it usually comes out of nowhere. On Saturday we had a really good down pour that only lasted for 15 minutes. It did a pretty good job of flooding the streets in that little time. It was great to break out the rain coat for that short time.

Our investigator is really progressing well towards baptism. We had her baptismal interview this past week and she did well. We could see that Heavenly Father is really helping in the process and that he is aware of all his children. The members have also been doing great with extending a hand of fellowship. The young women are doing great at helping her feel welcome. This week for Wednesday they are going hiking and our investigator is going to be able to go with them. We are looking forward to the baptism this Friday and all the doors it is going to open for her. This ward has really been a testimony builder for me on the importance of working with the youth. It is such a critical time and they are so much more willing to accept the gospel. Then in turn it affects so many people and helps spread the gospel even more. Our investigator is thinking of doing the mini missions that our mission is offering in august. That would be such a great experience for her. 

On Saturday we went to a ward dinner held by the young women and it was a blast. They has a silent auction for desserts and it was funny watching all the members go around and bid on what they wanted. One of the members ended the night going home with close to ten different desserts. We ourselves ended up with three. We were also given two big plates of fresh donuts but we drove by a park and shared them with some kids that like to play basketball there. After the dinner we went to Brother Erikson's house and had correlation. We are getting everything set up for a fireside we are going to have the 11th of June where President and Sister Lewis are going to speak. This is one of the things we are working on to allow the members to do missionary work and invite their friends to learn more. We are looking forward to the results that it will bring. 

This is going to be a great week and I hope everyone has a great week as well.

Love Y'all,
Elder Boren
