Me & Junior...May 22

This week went super fast. I guess that's what happens when we're really busy.

On Wednesday we did a service project with half the zone. We all got our machetes and cut down this persons big field. It was really fun and I have a ton of blisters. It reminded me of when you take a month break from baseball and swing a bat again and get blisters like crazy. We had a good time and it felt good to be able to help out.

Junior is the oldest of the kids in the Mamoe family that we have been teaching. Even though his dad shut us down, he sneaks out to come to church activities. This week he even went to seminary that starts at 5:00 am. He is such a cool kid and wants to get baptized so bad. The rest of the kids want it as well.  They just aren't as ballsy as Junior. Whenever we go visit with him he always walks home with us.  It's just a perfect example of when someone becomes converted, they're not gonna let anything stop them.  Hopefully, he will stay valiant and his dad's heart will be softened when he sees the positive impact the gospel is having on his children.

We finally have a baptism this week!! His name is Malu. We actually met him at dance practice for a performance thing they're doing for the stake party on the 1st. He is a really cool and super-humble guy. Sometimes we just go and visit him to answer questions. He loves learning about the gospel. He has the Gospel Doctrine book and whenever a Book of Mormon reference is made he looks it up in the scriptures. It has been awesome to see his testimony and knowledge of the gospel grow.  It really makes me happy to be a part of that process.
