Avalon Week 10

So our investigators are doing well. Stephine finally came to church again! It was so awesome to see her there! There is a member that moved into our ward that is really close friends with her dad. So she will be a great influence on getting her out to church! She'll be baptized soon I hope. She called us up last Friday and asked if she could be baptized the next day/Saturday! We were happy that she really had that great desire but when I asked how long she had quit smoking for, she said 8 hours, which isn't long at all. I had to lovingly explain to her that one has to be ready and worthy to get baptized and 8 hours clean of smoking isn't enough. She understood and was able to make it out to church. Hopefully that will give her more strength to overcome the temptations. It's incredible what church will do for someone's ability to resist temptations. Emil and Mona weren't able to make it to church due to some family visiting so we'll be meeting with them this Saturday and they'll for sure be coming out to church more. Emil really loves the Book of Mormon and said that he'll have most of it read by the time Saturday rolls around so that's really exciting! Some of our investigators we haven't been able to see in a while so there's not much to report there but we were able to find 2 more investigators this week, so that was exciting.

Other than that this week really wasn't that eventful. There weren't too many things that happened of note. So I
guess I'll just close this letter for this week. Well that's all for this week! love you! Take care!
