What a week! We have been visiting the Flores family more. He wants to get baptized in June. Please pray for them. They are going through a lot of opposition right now. Please keep them in your prayers.
I have been doing a lot better. I love this area and hope that I get to stay here. Elder Reeve and I are working hard. I am pleased with our progress.
We rescued a cat this last week from a tree. Then we drove to the reservation to ask a family in the branch could take of him. It is the same family with the squirrel.
Thanks for all the support and love!
No group email for the week, however, we enjoyed our Skype call for Mother’s Day. The whole family (Jes & Tim in Utah & Erica & Sam in LA) was able to participate.
Drew is making the most of his mission. When asked what he enjoyed most about his mission, he quickly replied, “I love the people, I really love the people I’m serving”. Then he said, “I really don’t like the cold weather, it snowed again yesterday (5/13/17). We were supposed to go fishing”. Winter 2016-2017 broke records for snow totals and freezing temperatures in Pocatello, Idaho.
Drew was pleased to report his investigators are slowly progressing. Although none came to church, he is encouraged by their progress. One investigator went to the ER. When she returned home, she asked Drew and Elder Reeve to give her a priesthood blessing.
Thank you for the support you show Elder Allen. He is humbled by your kindness. Until next week!
ps – Drew sent four pictures this week, 3 of a coyote on a farm & one of him. This is getting ridiculous!
We were teaching Osmar, the man who recently moved from Peru. He has really slowed down as far as progressions with the gospel. He lost his original desire for reading the Book of Mormon. He stopped coming to church, and started to cancel appointments, etc. Saturday was the first time in a week we were able to meet with to teach him. He still wasn’t progressing and didn’t accept the commitment to go to church. We told him “Lets pray about it, and lets see how you feel afterwards.” So we prayed, and he said, “I think that I need to go to church.” That was so awesome. He came for sacrament. The branch welcomed him openly. It was a really cool experience.
We went on a service project and then golfing. I’m sorry, no time to email everyone today. Thank you for all your love and support.
Love you all,
