Working Hard 3/18/2-13

     Good afternoon everyone, hope you all doing well.  It's kind of crazy to think that I have been in Spokane now for a month.  This is also the last week of our transfer.  To coordinate with the adjustment in time that missionaries will be in the MTC, the mission cut a week off of this transfer.  But it has been a great transfer. This week has been no exception. Elder Christensen and I have spent every moment doing everything we can to help this area and our investigators progress and we have seen great miracles this week. 
      We had a new family come to church this week for the first time. They are the Tso family, and they are Navajo. They moved to Washington recently, and we just tracted into them. The father, Jim, has had a little exposure to the church and same with his wife. We started teaching their oldest daughter first, but now the whole family is getting more interested. We had a lesson with them on Saturday and invited them to church. They came and really enjoyed it. We have another lesson with them today and we are super excited for it.
      Dennis is still doing great and we are anticipating a great turnout for his baptism this Saturday. He is excited and so prepared. He still reads and prays and his comprehension of the scriptures is astounding.
      Robert and his fiance came to church as well this week. We took a member to one of our appointments with him, and as it turns out, they know each other pretty well. Bro Minzghor (the member) invited him and his fiance to dinner yesterday after church and in their conversation, Kathy, the fiance, told the Minzghors that she wanted to work towards becoming a member of the church as well, so hopefully we'll be able to teach her with Robert, but she is so busy I have hardly ever talked to her. Robert is still doing great though. He has definitely been more optimistic as he has been reading and praying every day. He has really progressed a lot since I have originally met him.
      We taught Corey the Plan of Salvation and invited him to be baptized, but he is still hesitant to set a date. He really likes what he's been taught, but wants to make sure it is true before he makes any commitments. He is really sincere and I really pray we will be able to help him recognize his answer. 
      We have had a lot of great lessons with other people that we have met this week and we continue to go, find, and teach to the best that we're able to. The Lord has really blessed us this transfer and we have seen so many miracles.  I love you all and pray for you often, and hope you all have a great week.=)
