Sunny in Greenwood, IN

Wow! this week has been a long one!
The sun has come out here in Greenwood! It feels so good to not have to wear a coat now! We have had the car this week so that has been great :) The Lord has truly blessed us with some new potentials and I am so excited to see what the future has in store. 

Our investigator Richard is still moving forward steadfastly towards baptism. He was on his way to church yesterday and when he walked out his door, his sister and cousin convinced him to go to their church (baptist) and he said that he did not feel the same feeling he felt at that church then he did at ours. He said he got bored there and made a paper airplane and wanted to throw it at the preacher (this is a 63 year old man here people!). It was a good experience for him to go through that and now he is committed to coming to church faithfully every week. 

We have been meeting with him everyday and it is amazing to see the change take place in his life. This guy used to be a bad, bad guy but just as Alma the younger made a miraculous change and became a man of God, Richard is doing the same. He called me this morning at 7:30 while I was eating breakfast (he gets up at 5 every morning and reads the Book of Mormon) and informed me that he was having an awesome day and that he hasn't felt this good in over 40 years. It is such a blessing to take part in this turning point in his life.

The ward here is wonderful. One of my favorite things about my mission is to get to know the saints in Indiana. They are a loving and dedicated people. I love getting to know about their lives and laugh and share the gospel together. These people are being prepared for their temple being built here. I also have to say that there are a TON of ties to Rigby, Idaho here! My goodness! Everyone has either lived in Rigby, visited Rigby, or has relatives that live in Rigby! haha I love it :)

That is about all this week. Its great out here in Indiana! Love you all!
