Baptism scheduled for Saturday

Hey! Things are going pretty well. We have been having a good week here in Lancaster.  Edwin is getting baptized on Saturday and we get to go down to it. It'll be in charlotte. He has came a long ways, and I can tell that he is happier. He has been applying the gospel, and it's making a difference in his life. I'm way happy for him! I've noticed on Facebook he mostly posts church stuff, he has changed a lot since the first time we met him. He's a lot more mature, and genuine.

We had a powerful lesson this week with an investigator who is an older lady named Josephine. We taught the restoration, and the member we were with said it was the most powerful experience being with missionaries he's been apart of. He said watching from the outside he didn't want to speak or interrupt , that everything we said from the very beginning had power, and he could feel the spirit. It was very reassuring to hear that, ITs an amazing feeling to know God can use us for teaching his restored gospel. It is not me. She was pretty receptive though, she did not fully accept the baptismal invite, but is praying and reading about the Book of Mormon. I have high hopes for her!

We also had a zone conference this week which was good as usual! Things are still going really good, and we are working hard. We have been surviving the heat and having a good time! It's going faster and faster. When the members out here keep saying hay I'm getting closer it's hard to comprehend it will actually end. I know it's getting close, but it'll be a weird day for sure! I'm happy though and love
serving the lord! Thanks for all you do!
