Dear family and friends,This week flew by. It's already May! How did that happen? We had a really good week.
A number of our investigators are pretty much ready to get baptized but they either need to get married or make their significant others move out. Some of them have been interviewed and now we're just waiting for them to make decisions...and some of them want us to talk to their boyfriends for them and I'm like, no way, I did not sign up to be a marriage counselor. We are studying with a couple who's daughter is a member and they're going to get married on the 16th. The dad gets so nervous in the lessons and he's hesitant to get married and then the mom keeps pushing him to set a date...and then he laughs and makes silly faces and we all die laughing. He bore his testimony at the end of a lesson the other day and it was really great to hear him talk about the things he knows to be true. We told them we'd make a cake for the wedding, so hopefully they'll stick to the 16th.
We're going to make cookies today (we found chocolate chips in a chinese store!) and probably hang out with the Beckers.
