The more sure word of prophecy means a man's knowing that he is sealed up unto eternal life, by revelation and the spirit of prophecy, through the power of the Holy Priesthood.
Doctrine and Covenants 131:5

Dear family,

First thing's first, I want to wish a happy birthday to my older brother, Eric! He turned 23 today! Wow, you're old! Haha, just kidding. :) But seriously, I hope you have a good day!

This week was great. We were able to officially begin teaching Tina and her daughters! They are awesome. We taught them the Restoration and they committed to begin reading the Book of Mormon. They also committed to a baptismal date on July 1.

It's a cool story how Tina found the church. She recently moved to Monroe and needed to find a church she could attend. She had always been a member of the church of Christ, so she googled that and started looking for one in the area. She found our church,
and decided to just show up! She said that everybody was really nice to her and that she felt at home. So this week she brought her daughters, too. They're so awesome. We are grateful to be teaching them. Miracles!

On Wednesday we had zone conference...my last one! That is just crazy. It was a great day, we talked a lot about being truly accountable to the Lord in everything we do. Being accountable is especially important to all of us that are about to return home,
because it's a principle that we will continue to use for the rest of our lives. So it felt like a pretty appropriate way to spend my last zone conference.

All of the departing missionaries also have the chance to bear their testimonies at their last zone conference. It felt so weird...I've seen all these other missionaries do it in the past, but now it was my turn. I just can't believe how fast it's all
happening.

Well, that's about all I have for this week! I love being out here and I'm going to use every minute to it's fullest! I hope everyone has a good week!

Here's a picture of Elder Wade and I at a Memorial Day Parade we went to last week.
