This week has been especially good. I got two postcards from Aunt Raylee and Nicole. It's always nice to get some physical letters. Jadese and Jodi, the people I told you about last time, are progressing very well. Jadese's has been talking a lot about marriage with her boyfriend Tony so I should be sending you some wedding pictures soon, if all works out. If it doesn't Jadese is willing to move out so that she can be baptized. She has been reading through the book of Mormon chapters we have given her and she spends a good amount of time on the church website watching Mormon Messages and conference talks. I wish that I had utilized more church media while I was at home. The other best part of the week was that we taught the plan of salvation to the young men we are teaching and we should finally have a young men's leader! Tristen, one of the boys, is the most progressive. We taught him about the plan of salvation from pre-earth life to mortality, and also the gospel this week and he should be baptized June 14th. He loved the plan of salvation. His favorite part is that we can become like God someday. We told him about the quote "As man is, God once was; as God is, man can become." He thought that was the coolest thing. He is sharing and encouraging the other 6 or 7 boys to come to church and also to a Book of Mormon class we have on Wednesdays. We let him teach what he had learned about the plan of salvation in 3rd hour and he showed that he understood really well everything we have taught him. It felt like I was back home in Priest’s Quorum. We have started to really focus on our most progressive investigators and it's really paying off. As I have focused on the most important things in my life as a missionary, everything else just falls into place. Hurrah for Israel!

Love you!
