This is a happy week!

Hi Family!

Yesterday was the happiest Sunday of my entire mission so far! We had 13 less actives at church and 6 investigators! Marlon came to church!!!!! You have no idea how big this is! this is not your everyday neighborhood newspaper headline. This is front-page-of-the-New-York-Times material! We have been trying for so long to get Marlon to come to church, but he was too shy. We were trying to get Ryan, one of the less actives we're helping come back to church, to go with Marlon to church becuase they are friends, but things kept coming up that kept Ryan from going to church. So we got Franklin, one of the other YSA in the branch to go with him instead. On Wednesday we taught Marlon, and he said when he prays he feels that what we've taught him is true. We also taught him about the Sabbath day, and he said he really wanted to follow that. We committed him to go to church with or without Ryan, and he did!!! And I think he had a good experience! And he will be baptized on November 3! 

We also taught Dave Ashley this week, a 12-year-old investigator from a part member family. We've been teaching him with Jackielyn becuase he's really shy and he prefers not being taught by himself. But we taught him with his mom (who is less active and hadn't been to church in a long time) on Saturday. After the lesson he told sister Asuro that he wants to be baptized! And he and his mom both came to church the next day!! 

Life is happy! the church is true!

Love, Sister Boekweg
