2 NEPHI 5:27

The week has been great! Every week I say that and it’s true! This week we have seen a lot of miracles working with the members! We are just here in a gold mine! There are a lot of part member families and families that are willing to share the Gospel with their loved ones! So we have been doing A LOT of member work and it is fun!

One of our investigators named Devan is the boyfriend to a member and they live in the same house... So we told him that he could be baptized if he lived in a separate room and separate bed than his girlfriend. That’s what President Pearson told us was ok. So we go to see him and he was building a wall between the two beds because they live in a one room house that is probably 15 by 15. So he was so excited to show us this wall that he was building so he could be baptized!! It was so awesome and put a huge smile on my face to see this man really willing to do all he can to follow God! Devan came to church and even brought one of his friends with him!! He is on fire with sharing the Gospel! He will be baptized on the 15th of July!
The picture is of a couple of boys that are one of the members kids in this area! The older one we have been teaching for a couple weeks and will be baptized on Wednesday! He is really smart! 

Through studies I found this awesome scripture in 2 Nephi 5: 27; "And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness".  Nephi and his followers chose to be happy because they did what God asked of them! So it is with all of us! We can choose to be happy!! I am happy and enjoying every day!!
