Ponca City

Grind Time

Hello friends and family
Another good week out here in the promised land of Ponca City, OK haha. There is some exciting stuff happening. Two of my favorite people are on baptismal date!! Their names are Kessai and Luann, I am super excited for them, it is April 11th because they need to get married first. That is a huge step for us in making a branch here! Also we need 40 people at church on Sunday, that has been the goal since I got here. So we are fasting with all the members and having a dinner thing after church and inviting EVERY Marshallese person we know to "come and see." It is going to be awesome, Marshallese people love a party, I have high hopes for it. We are inching closer and closer to that Branch. But two of our most solid people are moving to Oregon, they were just about to choose a baptismal date. We are way sad about that, but I hope they continue to go to church up there. We went to a Keemem (someones 1st birthday) this week and it actually started somewhat on time it was insane! But they gave us soo much stuff, but my favorite thing was this hat (I will send a pic of it). Also it was stake conference this week and one of the 70 was there. He was powerful and talked about how faith is CHOICE. I thought was cool, I have never heard that before. We can always choose faith. He promised us that as we choose faith, we will see miracles. That is so true, I have seen it so many times. This is a Gospel of Miracles, the church is true. God Speed!
