Hey Fam. Its been a good week. We met with the Nigerian family multiple times this week bringing them to a baptism and catching the rest of their family up with all the things we teach them. The Grandmother Titi is the one who came to church this week with her grandchildren Ola And I have no Idea how to spell her brothers name. But the Grandmother just came to visit Victoria from Nigeria and Victoria gave her a Book of Mormon and told her to read it. So we have been teaching her and she had told us how much she has changed. She told us her son is a pastor in Africa and she is going to give him a Book of Mormon and she is going to have him change too. She is working towards being baptized. So as we teach them Victoria, Ola, Titi will be Baptized then their Son and the Husband Bayo will hopefully sit in on a lesson as well. 

Wondm will be continuing to meet with us and we are going to bring an Ethiopian friend that comes to church to help teach him. We have been working on being very obedient  and we have seen The Lords hand in our life! Its been awesome I believe your prayers are heard and will be answered!!!! Of course be it his will! 

Beat to Teach and Pitbull:
here are some things I forgot to mention. Played Getto B ball or as we call it Beat to teach. They were all cool! My team won. 

Then we went to go check out some potential Investigators and this Pit bull ran up to us and slapped into my comps window without me knowing. I opened my door and the Fart hopped into our car like he wanted a ride! Luckily he was a sweet dog. Later his owner came was looking for him and I helped chase him down. and the Dog wouldnt come to his owner so I stopped and the Dog stopped and I slapped my knees and told him to come here. and He GALLOPED to me hahaha and jumped right into my arms. so I held the dog till His owner came and Got him.

A wonderful week!

 This week was great! We worked hard and had much success with talking with our Ethiopian friend Wondm. We invited Wondm to church AND HE CAME!!!!!!!! IT WAS SO GREAT! He couldnt stay for the entire time so before he left we took him around the church and ran into a member in our ward who just so happened to be from the same country as Wondm! They spoke in their native language for a while and then parted ways and we continued to go around the church. As we worked our way around we came to the painting of John the Baptist and spoke about baptism. He told us he will get baptized but he wants to read more. He seems to be in Alma 45 right now! He does so much research when we arent there, then when we meet him he has great questions! He says "So many people say the Mormons are weird, but I enjoy what they do and how you work." He enjoyed sacrament meeting and is going to bring his wife and kid next week! 

   My companion and I have been praying for a miracle and working hard, then on Sunday we had a surprise visit at church from a Lady named Victoria! We had been trying to get in contact with her since she moved to Indiana. Victoria and her Family have been wanting to be baptized but lost contact with missionaries! She came up to the other Elders in our ward and poked em on the chest and said "WE NEED MISSIONARIES" so we received the correct contact information and we will be starting to meet with her on Tuesday. I am so grateful for miracles in this modern day. I am so grateful for the opportunity to give up a small time of my life to serve in Indiana. I can not describe the many wonderful things that have happened in my life since May 6th 2015. It hasnt always been easy but I am grateful for that. 

I love all of you
