Well hello there!

I bet everyone is running around like crazy this week.... I can't wait to hear about all the wedding stuff! 

Everything in Oakland is just plain great and awesome. Last week we met a lady named T****** while going to visit a less active. She really liked us so we asked if we could come back the next day and she said yes. So we went back with a member (Sister S********) and it was one of the most memorable lessons of my mission. T******* is soooo crazy and sooooo funny. She basically told us her whole life story and is one of the most animated and exuberant individuals. What's even more amazing though is her story. She has been off of drugs for 10 years and her and her husband are the nicest people just trying to make it in life and are so grateful for all they have. She is excited to learn from us and loves us.

Another exciting miracle recently is that we've met a few times with someone who has been investigating the church on and off for 4 years. He's had many baptismal dates and they have all not happened. Well recently we met with him and he told us he wants to be baptized. We extended a date for this Sunday (the 31st) and he excepted! Now the only thing we have to do is do everything in our power to make sure it happens! He is an older man, in his late 60's, and is so sweet but something always seems to get in his way. Not his time though! The ward is really excited about this because he's been learning for so long and just needs to enter into that water!

Those are a few highlights from the week. We went to the temple today and there are other pics we took recently. Life is great!

I love you all and have a wonderful week and CONGRATULATIONS BRAD AND TATUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I'm so happy for you both and for your new family! I can't wait to see you when I come visit in a few months! Enjoy your special day!!!!
