All the Good Stuff

So the family we met at the gas station, Tyron Aden Tyvia. We haven't been able to meet with them since last week so that is a bummer. But we did find two more guys that wanted to here our message!
We got a call on Friday from some guy named Michael who said we had talked to him and that he wanted us to come by. Elder Taylor and I could not recall any Michael. As we drove over there we finally remembered who he was. We had been driving to church and we saw a guy on the side of the road that we felt like we needed to talk to. So we pulled over and went and gave him a BofM with our number in it. Well we told him we would come to his house a coupled days later but elder Taylor and I totally forgot to put it into the area book because we were running to get to church! Well when we went and visited him and his cousin Deondre was also there. We taught them the restoration and they accepted a baptismal invitation for Oct 29th!  They weren't able to make it to church because of a family function but Elder Taylor and I feel that they will definitely progress to baptism.

Friday was Zone Training and there was such an awesome spirit there!
Elder Taylor trained on the enabling power of the atonement. He did a great job and had us split into different groups and discuss different scriptures and quotes from "in the strength of the Lord" by David A.Bednar. Always a good topic to think about and discuss.

Sunday Cameron received the Aaronic Priesthood and I was blessed to be able to confer it! Always a blessing to be able to exercise the priesthood.

We have been able to have Tony, one of the priests, come out with us pretty frequently the past two weeks and it has been a lot of fun getting to know him. He is the son of our ward mission leader, brother Johnston. A couple weeks ago we invited them to read the scriptures everyday and I guess Tony has been quite the stickler about it. He will call his family at the time when they usually read scriptures if he isn't there and remind them. We heard one of the conversations...
"Hey did y'all read scriptures yet?..... Ok well are you going to do it?..... Mom I need an affirmative Yes or No..... Well can I at least get an I love you?..."

Such a funny kid

Gotta Run!!
