Spring is finally here!

Family,

Hey! So unfortunately, we didn't have the baptism. We had a pretty
crazy week with Juan. On Tuesday, I went on exchange with Elder Dunn
in Tualatin so i wasn't in our area. Elder Thatcher went on taught
Juan that day and apparently it did not go well. They taught tithing
and Juan really didn't want to pay it. He doesn't make very much money
so it's understandable, but he eventually said he was good with the
Catholic Church. Well, the next day we went and taught him again and
tried to get everything cleared up with tithing, and it went really
well. He read his scriptures the night before and he felt that tithing
was a commandment from God. It was insane! The problem now is that he
didn't come to church yesterday and we haven't been able to get ahold
of of him since. We rescheduled his baptism for this Saturday, but we
will see what happens.

So Yes Brother Callister came and it was amazing! I didn't realize he
was currently the Sunday school general president for the church. I
knew he was a seventy but I didn't realize he currently had a calling.
He taught the Plan of Salvation in a way I have never seen before. He
taught the entire plan in detail only using scriptures from the Bible.
It was incredible. No wonder he is the creator of Teaching in the
Saviors Way Sunday school program. It was kinda sad too because
President Ballard missed his sons wedding to go to the meeting.

That's crazy that you guys met elder Martin. Well, I guess Brayden now
haha. He is a funny guy. I was just talking to him a couple of Sunday
ago and now he's over there. Haha. Anyways, I went on two exchanges
this past week with some missionaries in our Spanish zone and it was a
lot of fun. We are trying to go on two more this week but we are
probably going to be too busy. We have interviews with President
Ballard tomorrow and then Elder Ballard is coming on Friday. It's
crazy.

Anyways, I'm glad all is well with you! It's getting close to general
conference. Woohoo! I'm getting pumped! Have a great week! Love ya!
