Madet Manyiel Dut

Hello Family!  How is errbody???  Well I wish I had time to reply to all your emails individually, but I dont have much time.  But thanks so much for your emails!  Especially Dad and Mom.  They were great.  I am glad to hear that all is going well.  So yeah.
Wellllll  .  .  this week was good!  We got someone baptized!  Joseph Thoker!  But we actually baptized him by his African name Madet Manyiel Dut (hence the title of the email...)   so yeah!  It was great!  He was ready and he is going to be a great member.  We challenged him to go to the temple in one year and so I hope he does!  Also he is going to get the Aaronic Priesthood next week.  So that will be sweet! He can pass the sacrament.   . .   anyway . . . 
What else happened this week  . . ..    oh!  we had zone conference.  It was great!  Learned a lot.  We are asked now to envision all our investigators three times in white.  Once at the baptism, once at the endowment in the temple, and once at the sealing in the temple!  It helps us see how we can help our investigators make their commitments and keep them.  So yeah.  It was a great zone conference. 

Alright. . .  Well also this week two of our investigator didnt have the money to pay rent so they made a deal with their landlord that they would clean and paint the upstairs apartment so that they could stay.   . . .  they are both on disability and have a lot of problems.  So we actually did a lot of painting. . . .    im pretty sure we painted for about 10 hours total.  .   We were there one day and Margie (one of our investigators) fainted . ..   She just straight up passed out.  And she wasnt coming to . . ..  it was scary!  Daniel (her husband) called 911  . .   Eventually she started to come back.  She was fine and now she is doing okay.  She has diabetes and high blood pressure and she is on oxygen . .  so its hard.  But she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met.   They are trying to quite smoking now so that they can get baptized next weekend!   Hopefully it all works out well.

We also took Stacy (another investigator) to temple square!  It was really awesome.  We had a lot of fun and she learned a lot ..  She is very scared to commit to things though :/     but we'll work on that.

I had exchanges with the zone leaders this week . . I went into their area and they are spanish speakers . .  so it was a little weird. . . but it was fun. 
Anyway.   Other then that, we went to the temple this morning!  it was amazing.  I always love going to the temple . .   I learn new things every time I go.  Its awesome :)

Well I think that is just about all.  I love you all!  I love being a missionary.  It is going by very quickly too. .  I don't know what to think about that .   . .           

God lives and He loves us.
Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer.
The church is true.
