This was a super cool/crazy week. So many super cool things happened and some not so good things too, but we will focus mostly on the good because the bad stuff is dumb. But Amon and Ertila came up and visited us this week and it was soooo awesome. They are some of my favorite people I have ever met. Amon was the guy that we studied with in Enid and was just recently baptized, and Ertila just received a calling as a Youth teacher. They came up and gave us gifts and just had a good time together. They also came on member presents with us and it was sooo awesome to see them bear their testimonies and help out other families. We brought so many members to their house and it is so cool to see the roles switch. One of the highlights of my mission. Another highlight of my mission is that the Mission family is back!! They are "back in white". haha Paul gave Josiah (another recent convert and his son) the Aaronic Priesthood yesterday. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. They are back in full swing. Now for the sad thing, Hermine, who is one of my other favorites, is moving to Sacramento. It is so sad. He is leaving today, he has come so far, but he will be an awesome member of the church in Sacramento. I have developed a deep love for these people and it is super sad when they leave, but it is okay. The Lord's work will move on. God is good all the time! God speed!
