We Need the Gospel in Our Life

Dear Family & Friends:

Traffic to the airport.
So the other day we roll into an apartment complex and we spot a man we are going to go talk to. haha We scoped him from a mile. So we go up to him and start talking to him. It didn't take long to realize the old man was a little crazy haha. Out of the blue he goes, "Where did you come from, Mars??" I said, "Nah, we actually are from Jupiter" and Elder Bird lost it.  He started laughing and trying to hide it and the old guy says, "Oh yeah, that is the one that has more rings right?" The dude totally believed us, I think haha who knows?  Well, keep it real!

6/6 Tuesday
Running and gunning! Today started off with another adventuress drive to the airport! We had eight missionaries coming in today and they all are going to be super good missionaries. One of the sister’s luggage got stolen, so she will have to go shopping and get all new stuff. We said goodbye to Elder Evanson today. He is going to do great things in the Rancho Ward his last six weeks. We let a set of zone leaders use our car to help with transfers and we got it back today and they had made a mess out of it haha. There was stuff stuck in the seats and crumbs all over it was pretty gross. We weren't too happy, but what can you do!

New Missionaries.

6/7 Wednesday
We had MLC (Mission Leaders Conference) today and that went well! Right in the middle of one of our training's, this monstrous cockroach was crawling on the wall behind me. As I was talking I started to notice that eyes were following something behind me and I turned around to see a real big cockroach on the wall behind me... gross. President stomped it after it started running around. At one point it was under Sister Walker’s scriptures. haha She was more disgusted than me hahaha. We had a couple good lessons tonight with Dylan and Brenda! Dylan is stoked to get baptized on the 17th!

6/8 Thursday
We got to go teach Ken today! To be completely honest the lesson was pretty rough at the beginning, but Ken definitely felt the Spirit and he is starting to change! It is amazing to see the gospel change people! We saw Jenny again tonight! We are really struggling getting her to change and really become committed but we did set her to be baptized on the 8th of July. She needs the Gospel in her life super bad. She is headed to San Diego for a few days so we won't be able to see her for a little while.

6/9 Friday
Well today didn't go as well as planned! Most of our lessons fell through and we also ran out of water and so it is going to be a long haul until Monday so we can actually get some water into our bodies! We talked to some nice people and got a return appointment but nothing crazy solid!

6/10 Saturday
We taught a lot today! We started at Joseph and Janice's place and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ lesson! They are awesome! I can't wait for them to progress in the gospel as a family! We then taught Ken, and Brother Warden came and it was a really great lesson! Ken said that he is all in and ready to be baptized! He is definitely excited about the path he is on! He is changing so much! We also met with a lady tonight that right off the bat felt the Spirit because we shared a scripture that touched her big time! It was sweet! She said she would come to church!

6/11 Sunday
Ken came to church and loved it! Also Janice and Joseph came and they liked it! Both talks had amazing stories that were perfect for Ken and Janice! It was great. Dylan came to church and is all set to be baptized on Saturday! It was a great week!

Things are well in Las Vegas! Next week Elder Costa is coming for a mission tour and we get to go to dinner with him.  It will be sweet! I am super excited! Elder Bird and I are getting along well! We already have our halibut trip planned!
Love you all
