#Hallelujah—An Easter Message about Jesus Christ

Hello Hello,

This last week has been really amazing, we have had so many awesome experiences, and things are really looking up in our area!

This week has actually been pretty hard when it comes to finding, we had several hours of knocking where people wouldn't even let us show them the Hallelujah video, but the few lessons that we were able to teach were super awesome!!

I love having the Hallelujah video on our iPads, because it makes it easy to just bring the spirit in so powerfully right at the start of the lesson. Then when we are teaching people about how to receive revelation concerning the Book of Mormon, we can point out how the spirit feels to them because they just felt it super strongly as we watched the video!

It's also been super hot this week and we've been biking a lot, but boy it's so worth it.

Saturday was SUCH a good day, in the morning we went and did some service for a member. He had 2 stocked palettes of mulch that we spread, and they got us some BBQ after which was tasty. I got a bunch of Chigger bites on my legs though, they have been sooo itchy. After that we went and contacted a referral, her name is Arley is she is just collecting as many Bibles as she can hahaha. She loves Jesus and everything Christian, and she doesn't know much about the Book of Mormon so we are going to go teach her the restoration next week! She is one of those people who are kept from the truth, only because they know not where to find it, so hopefully we can help her find it!

We had a lot of other great things happen Saturday, but the pinnacle was with this lesson that we had with these former investigators, Ken & Sharon. They were former investigators from a couple of years ago that we tracted into, and we set this appointment for Saturday. When we got there he was talking to his son on the phone and he totally forgot about our appointment, but he hung up on his son to talk to us. Like I don't think anyone has ever hung up the phone for me, I hope you all realize how important him hanging up his phone for us is, it is truly the sign. Anyways we had an awesome lesson with them, and they are so ready for baptism! They are going out of town next week so we won't be able to meet with them soon, but they are so great. Hopefully I'll be talking more about them.

Saturday night we also had the transfer call, and I'm going to be staying in Fort Caroline for another transfer with Elder Carlisle! Six months is going to be a long time for one area, but we've got so much going for us right now I would've been really disappointed if I got transferred. Elder Barney & Elder Barrott are also staying which should be fun! Unfortunately Elder Bangerter is getting transferred out to go be a zone leader which is sad. I'm going to miss him like crazy.

Things are going really good in Fort Caroline, and I'm so grateful to be a missionary!

Love y'all. :-)
