The Book of Mormon is True!

Hey everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful week and are enjoying the rain if you live in California! You're getting more than Suriname!

We had a good week this past week and we really just worked hard and saw some cool miracles! We found this person named Jerrel and he was actually a referral from one of our investigators so we contacted him and he said we could come by sometime. So we went on a search for his house and finally found it in the jungle and I'm just going to say that he has the coolest house I've ever seen! He is completely self-sufficient! He has a solar panel for his electricity and gets his water from the rain and heats his water with wood fires. His place just looks so cool and he lives a simple life, but is so happy! We're pumped for him and his son and they've already started reading in the Book of Mormon so we're pretty pumped. One struggle this week was that all of our members got super sick! I don't know what happened! All of the sudden they just all got sick at the same time and two of them had talks in church but had to cancel them. It was pretty crazy! Probably the coolest thing that happened this week was with our investigator named Miguel. First of all he's awesome and has so many fruit trees and vegetable plants everywhere so we always have a ton of food to bring home from his house. He's a stud. But we committed him to read and pray and ask if the Book of Mormon is true. Well he did it and guess what? He got an answer!!!! He just brought it up before us asking about it and was so pumped! We are super excited and he is just progressing so well now! Ahhh! It's the best!

Also today we had some serious sporting with our zone and man I'm exhausted and out of shape! It's not so easy to run as it once was! I'm excited to get back into running when I get back home though but the time in the mission is going way too fast! That was our week though and we're excited for another great one!

Loving the mission and it's going by too fast as I've already said. Make sure you're reading every day out of the Book of Mormon! It'll help you always stay strong! love you all! Lobi!
