LIFE.  Man, it is so good.  I have like 5 million pictures and 5 million more things to say so here we go.
General Conference rocked- it was so refreshing and so happy because all of our investigators LOVED it and were able to receive a lot of insight.  One of your recent converts actually went to Salt Lake with a member to watch it in person and so that was the coolest.  I was so grateful for the emphasis on missionary work and members and missionaries working together to do it.  My fav insight I received: Repent of your fears and replace them with faith.
Clarissa, one of our investigators who is getting baptized this Saturday is progressing so super well!  We taught her the Word of Wisdom and she got pretty overwhelmed because she has been struggling with an addiction for a while- but she said that she is determined to get baptized on the date she set so she is putting all her faith in Jesus Christ and He is carrying her!  She quit cold turkey and said its the hardest thing she's ever done but she is super determined!
On Saturday Gennifer and Tevin got baptized.. I love them so much- holy cow.  Gennifer bore such a powerful testimony after and was crying afterwards because she was so happy and grateful for having the gospel in her life!  Also like 4 days before she went to get her hair colored and she asked for brown and it turned purple hahaha she was sooo super mad (pics attached) and then she was nervous that it would turn the baptismal font water purple but it did not so we were all grateful!  Tevin is the coolest ever.  His life is so tough and he has so much opposition going against him but he got up and bore a powerful testimony about how he is happier than he has ever been since he has been learning about and applying the gospel of Jesus Christ. :')  We were talking to him on Sunday and we were like 'tevin how does it feel to be baptized and have the holy ghost?' his response: 'still black' hahaha but then he bore sweet testimony.  I LOVE THIS PEOPLE! 
On Sunday we got to go to the beginning of priesthood because three of our recent converts got the priesthood!!!! aaahhhh! so cute.
Last weekend we had MLC and it is in Reno so us and the zone leaders and district leaders all drove our way down to Reno (5 hours away) and spent the night there to go to MLC the next day.  It was one of the elders bday and we went to Texas Roadhouse and he had to sit on a saddle while everyone sang to him... hahaha funniest thing ever, he was so mad.  Anyways- MLC was sooo good.  They talked a lot about listening to understand how the Savior suffered everything we would ever go through so that when we are going through the hard times, he can go to Him, because he knows EXACTLY how we feel.  I am so grateful for that knowledge.  We also talked about how we go through certain trials and tribulations so that we can be a savior for others who go through similar things.  I loved that perspective, because it is so easy to question why we go through hard times or why certain things happen- but a lot of the time we need to go through them so that we can stoop down to someone elses level to help them and show that we understand, just as the Savior does for us.  I love my Savior Jesus Christ.  I know He lives and I am so grateful for all He does for me and can do for anyone who will let Him in.  I hope you all have a wonderful week and let me know if there's anything I can do for you!
