We have been so blessed these past few weeks with some great successes. First with Dianna and now with Alex Lundgren. He has been seeing missionaries for ten years now! On Thursday he we set a baptismal date with him for the 7th of April! Seeing him change these last few months has been incredible. We wanted him to set the date himself through prayer. He wanted it to be on March 31st, which is a lot sooner then I thought he would want to do it. Unfortunately and fortunately that weekend is conference weekend, so we moved the date up a week. Along with seeing him change, It has been wonderful to see what the gospel has done and will do for their family. Their two kids will have a rare opportunity to be raised in The Gospel of Jesus Christ. When the time comes they will also have the chance to be baptized by their priesthood holding father. The funny thing about this is that we have decided to keep Dianna's date for the sixth of April, putting both baptisms a day apart. We considered combining them, but our branch president wanted to have the baptisms separate to make it more special for Dianna and AJ. In other news we have a new Branch Mission Leader. Our last one was an older guy named Michael Scullin. His family at one point one more than half of the businesses in Running Springs. He knows everyone in town and we can't go tracting without a few people saying "oh.. you guys must know Mike Scullin!" He has been an amazing resource to have. Our new Branch Mission Leader is one of my favorite members in the branch Earl Purkiss. He has already been helping us a lot in our work. He is very sarcastic and we make fun of each other non-stop, so he's obviously the best guy for the job. :) So we are still working hard here and I hope we can find even more success. I know that the only way that will happen is rely on The Lord. I love all of you and thank you for your letters. :)
