I Love Trailer Parks!

Hola Querida Familia!

So I was so excited about writing a nice long email today, but once again the hour that we are supposed to have is going to be cut short! But I'll type fast! Everything here in Spokane is wonderful!  Spring is gorgeous with all the green, and Washingtonites really take pride in their gardens and flowers, so I am loving it. The work has really been moving along as well!  I learn so much everyday it's unreal, I could write a volume in my journal every night, but there's definitely no time for that.  So . . . where to start. . .

Well first, Steve is doing amazing.  He continues to amaze me with his faith and uninhibited desire to learn.  He ask so many incredible, pertinent questions during lessons, sometimes I just think to myself, "Is this guy real?! Did we really get this lucky?"  But he is definitely real.  He is making awesome progress and June 6 is looking like the baptism day!  I hope with all my heart that I don't get my Visa before then, but it's very likely I will.  Lessons with Steve are so fun as we watch him get used to the whole "Mormon Culture."  He'll say things like, "I was in the brotherhood yesterday, and we were talking about . . ." (meaning Priesthood.) But all the members absolutely adore him, for good reason, and he is totally being drawn in, which is incredible.

We have been so blessed this week to find new investigators to teach, and most of it is thanks to this little patch of heaven called "The Sunshine Trailer Park." Okay, maybe it's not quite like heaven, and it's not really called Sunshine Trailer Park, but that's what I like to call it because I love the people here so much and it's just such a happy place!  Plus, we have had a lot of recent success there!  We are teaching a young man named Oscar, who really has a desire to find the truth, and we're just working with him to help him understand that he has to read the Book of Mormon to know for himself!  That is our answer to often: you have to read and pray!  Anyways, we're becoming pretty well known in this little trailer park and every time we visit, we find someone knew to teach, so I love it!

I've gotta run, but I love you all so much, and I love being a missionary!  Thank you for your prayers and support!
