There aint no rest for the Righteous

I would like to start our my letter my congratulating my favorite cousin Spencer Williams on his awesome mission call to the Fort Lauderdale mission in Florida Spanish speaking! Spencer that is awesome! you are going to be great, I love you, I'm so happy for you.

On saturday we moved into our new apartment, so things have been very exiting and kind of crazy. right now we kinda dont have anything, no trash cans, no cups, no silverware, no shower curtain, but we do have beds, running water and food which is all we really need. We are making a list of things we need and the ward will donate it so we wont have to go with out for long.

It was another great week. The best experience of the week was probably our first lesson with Jeff. Jeff is the friend of Joel (who was just baptized) and he came to Joels baptism and to church the next day. Jeff had incredible experiences at both the baptism and church. So he already had felt the spirit and knew he wanted to get involved before we had are first lesson. We had the first lesson at Jeff's house, and we had a kid named Austin come with us to the lesson. Austin was baptized right before we came into the singles ward, and he kinda got to know Jeff at church. It was the best lesson we have ever had, and it was all because of Jeff and Austin. The whole entire lesson Austin was sharing all these awesome experiences and how he felt when he was learning about these things. We taught the restoration and Jeff immediately knew it was true because the spirit was so strong. We challenged him to be baptized and he accepted, he is going to be baptized on the 23rd, which is soon but he is such a bright kid and he is so willing to do whatever he needs and so i know he will be ready. It was such a incredible experience, I felt such a brotherhood. It truly was like we were his best friends just telling him the things that me so much to us.

I am kind of short on time this week so that is all i can write, thanks for the prayers, I love you all.
