This week we finally finished teaching one of our investigators, He's a less active that we found a couple of months ago. He's been coming to church and reading his scriptures. Sadly, his wife left him because she didn't want to have anything to do with the church. So when he started getting active, he kept bugging her about it. She didn't like it, so she left. Which was super sad. But he's actually a lot happier now. He's thinking about moving with his Mom so he can stay active. I was so sad for him, but it's really awesome that he's putting the Lord first.
Last week we had a Family Home Evening with Joni Pono and Silvia. We invited another family to come, and had a great night learning and talking about Family units. We pulled out the Family Proclamation and we invited all of them to read a part of it. We sang together and played a game. It was a really good night. Everyone enjoyed it.

I realized that when I was little, that it was so easy to ask for help, and know God would be there for us. I always knew he would answer my prayer. I depended completely on God, and had childlike faith that he would help us solve the problem. And he did. When we get older, we try too hard to do things all by ourselves. That's the danger! Sometimes we depend too much on our own strength. There are times that we need to rely on God or we won't be able to get anything done. It was a good reminder today, that The first step is prayer. Once we call upon God for help, then we can do our best to accomplish the task. He'll help us, and together, we'll get it done!
I hope you all have a good week. Thank you for your letters, and all of your support.
Love you guys!
