Muslims, Mexicans, and more teaching!

Hello Everyone! It's been a good couple weeks here in Coldwater! I'm really enjoying it here and having a blast! The work has picked up a ton, so we are busy busy! We have been talking to a variety of people from Mexicans and Muslims to Native Michiganders! The people here are a lot more receptive than in Rockford, so that's a plus and things seem to be going really well.

Week 6 of last transfer was from July 10th to July 16th, and Monday and Saturday were both pdays, so we had Tuesday through Friday to work. We got a lot done in those few days, so we were proud. Our mission had 9 baptisms, so that was super exciting! We were able to do a fair amount of teaching and contacting, so things seem to be progressing. We went fishing for our Saturday pday, so that was fun!

Now this last week was super cool! We had a ton of success this past week! We taught the most lessons in a week since I've been here! We had 2 people on date (that has since changed, we only have one now) and we were able to talk to a lot of different people, some cool Arabic people that we were able to understand there Muslim beliefs a little more, some Mexicans so I got to speak a little gringo Spanish and some cool white people! Fun stuff! We are at the point where when we run into any Muslim kids they flock to us saying "Hey Brown and Garvin!" It's awesome to have such a cool bond with these kids and people!

I hit my year mark on this Friday! Crazy!

I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and I know that he lives! I love you all and hope to hear from each of you soon!
