Hey!  This week has been pretty good!  We have seen a couple great miracles.  We have found 2 new people to teach.  They are very prepared.  I am excited to continue working with them and helping them feel the effect of the atonement in their lives.
Our greatest miracle this week was that on Monday afternoon we got a media referral (text) to go and see a man named Dylan Lines.  Our appointment fell through at 6:00 p.m. so we decided to visit this referral.  We knocked on his door and he said "wow, that was fast!" and let us come in.  We got to know him and his background and set expectations with him. He moved to Utah last fall from Indiana.  We went back on Wednesday and taught him about the restoration and invited him to be baptized.  He said yes and is preparing for the 17th of May!  I think he will be ready even before then so hopefully I can ask him to be baptized before I leave.  (Might be a little selfish, but I think he will be ready before then!) Then we met with him on Friday at the church and gave him a tour and showed him the chapel, classrooms, elder quorum room, and the baptismal font.  He said that he talked with his father about it and he got very emotional and started telling about when he was baptized and how great it was.  He is very happy for Dylan that he has decided to be baptized!  Soo cool. :) Then he came to church on Sunday and stayed for all 3 hours.  He is very prepared.  The Lord sent him here to receive the gospel. I know it.  We are meeting with him tonight as well.  The Lord is blessing us. :)
The other miracle was meeting a young man named Tyler.  He moved from Delaware in January.  A member took me there (Elder Hawkins was with another member) and we started talking with him.  His big question was why there are so many different churches and why there isn't just one church and one faith in God.  So that was a great place to start! :) :)  I shared the restoration with him and we came back a couple of days later and taught him again.  One of his best friends was killed in a car crash recently so he says it is hard but that it is making him depend on God more.  The Lord truly is preparing people all around us to share the gospel with!  We all need to be better at getting over being scared and just be open about what we believe.
Well that is about all I have time for.  I love you all very much!  I will write more next week.

Easter was awesome.  I love sharing my testimony of Christ.  Did you see that video "Because of Him" on mormon.org? If not, watch it!!  Its good! 
Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. He restored this gospel in its fulness. I am so grateful for what he did.
