Transfer 14, Week 3, Lakes Stake, Desert Breeze Ward

Dear Family,
So I'm going to have to make this super fast! We don't have much time! Today we are moving from the Stake Presidents house to another members home in the ward.
This week was great! We had the baptism of Savannah! It went great! Spencer  is so happy to have his wife a member of the church and they are preparing to go to the temple next January!
We had the baptism of Byron last week. Brother Johnstons brother came to the baptism and we ended up meeting with him this past Tuesday! He is great!  He has no real belief in God, only a higher power. We taught the first lesson and taught him/asked him to pray. He has never prayed before but he gave the best prayer Ive ever heard! So much better than any of my prayers!
We also were able to meet with the Worku family! We have brought up baptism and she brushed it off and said that she has already been baptized. But this last time we were able to get her to understand the meaning of the Restoration in her life! She said that she would be willing to make baptism a goal but she said that she isn't ready yet! So exciting!
We also met with Conrad, our new investigator from last week. He is very kind and is willing to listen. He does have a problem with prophets; men getting in the way of god, as he puts it. So we will need to help him understand that... but overall its been a great week!
I love you all! I'll try to make next weeks letter longer!
Elder John
"I believe when we determine within our hearts that by and with the blessings of God our Heavenly Father we will accomplish a certain labor, God gives the ability to accomplish that labor; but when we lay down, when we look at the top of the mountain and say it is impossible to climb to the summit, while we never make an effort it will never be accomplished" -Heber J. Grant
