Welcome to my weekly letter page! I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Sacramento, California.

This week has been great! I'll just tell you briefly the coolest stuff that happened:
We taught a new investigator name Rebecca on Tuesday. She is dating someone in the YSA ward and came to church last week and that's where we first met her. Rebecca LOVES the church. She accepts it wholeheartedly. Her favorite part is that we have a modern prophet. She told us that it doesn't make sense that God loves all of his children; He is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and that He wouldn't have a prophet today. She got up and bore her testimony in sacrament meeting yesterday and she invited everyone to her baptism on June 1st. We are so happy for her. It is the coolest thing in the world to be able to teach someone like Rebecca. I hope that no member ever withholds a teaching opportunity from the missionaries in their ward.
Yesterday Elder Grow and I taught another new investigator named Alexis. She is friends with the Hunters, a member family in the Lathrop family ward. We taught Lexi first last week, but it was part of a plan of salvation lesson that we taught and focused on Jacob, a different investigator. We felt like we talked too much, we didn't listen, and Lexi didn't feel comfortable enough to ask questions, but apparently after we left she told her friend Claudia that we answered a ton of her questions she had about the afterlife. She asked her Christian parents about how they felt about her going to church with the Hunters and if she could be baptized. We were so excited when we heard that! So last night we taught her the Gospel of Jesus Christ and read Alma 7:11-16 with them. The Spirit was strong and we invited her to be baptized on June 1st! She accepted.
The church is true my friends. Love you all. Love,
