July 25, 2016

Dear family and friends! Well we had a pretty sweet week this week! We did another exchange this week and we have 2 more this upcoming week! We do exchanges so frequently I think I am finally getting used to it! Ha! I do really enjoy getting to know other missionaries and making more friends! Its great! :)

So something pretty cool about this week was we have been teaching an Eastern Orthodox Bishop and we invited him to a baptism last Friday and he was super excited to come! He came dressed in a black robe, a purple looking hat thing, and sweet staff! Ha! It was pretty awesome and everyone at the baptismal service was talking to him and loving that he came! It was pretty cool to see him there and I hope he recognized the Spirit while he was there! Some of the members even invited him to the confirmation this Sunday and he came to that as well! It was really cool! His name is Bishop Joe and its been a blast teaching him! Me and Elder Maloy were the ones that started teaching him and he definitely has real intent because we straight up asked him what if he came to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint was the only true church on the earth, and he told us that if found out that it was true he would be calling us up the next day to get baptized! He is super educated and has many accolades, but I know that by the testimony of true servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost can bear testimony and pierce the humble heart! 

Our other investigators are doing awesome and its great to see them progress! Love you all and have a great week!
