Friends and Family,This week has been great. We have seen a lot more potential arise this week. One of our members referred us to a man named Brother Landry. He isn't a member, but is very open and willing to be baptized if he receives an answer. He has gone through a lot in his life, losing his wife and family in a wreck, his second wife left him, and he was also flooded. Really sad. He has lost a lot of hope, and he just wants to turn back to God. I'm really excited to help him do that, especially since he is so humble. I know as he increases in faith and repents, he will find the peace and comfort he needs from the atonement.
We are also teaching to 16 year olds. They are awesome! We tried to help one pray. He almost had it, but wasn't able to finish. I was so sad for him because he was super discouraged, but we tried to pick him up and encourage him. He will be able to do it next time. They are great kids.
We are going to put up some drywall this week. It will be fun! I'm glad I'm learning how to do it. A lot of people need help with it.
