Mission President Curve Balls.....

Area:  Kansas City, Missouri (Fleming Park Ward)    
Companion:  Elder Monroe

Hello Everyone!

We have had a great week that has resulted in a lot of wonderful little miracles that have happened!  One of those was that the 9 year old that we are teaching, Michael, has said that he wants to be baptized!  We just need to have him confirm things with his mom and set a specific date for him.  Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.  Darcio was not baptized this past week as much as I would have loved to see that happen.  We have bumped his date back to the 12th of March, but will probably have to bump it back a little further because we haven't been able to see him for awhile.  He was at church with his family this Sunday though!

We made contact with a guy named James who I have been trying to make contact with since I have been in the area.  I had contacted him one time and then it has just been impossible to catch him ever since that.  We had a fantastic sit down lesson with him.  He is in him late 20's early 30's and has such a sincere desire to follow God.  We asked him to say the prayer after we taught the restoration and as he was offering he, he broke down into tears and started repenting without him realizing it.  He was praying about how he had strayed from the path, but wants to get back on.  As he was crying he grabbed his Book of Mormon and held it next to his heart.  This guy is so awesome!  We are excited to see where he goes from here.

Well, this is transfer week!  We find out if we are getting transferred on Tuesday!  :D. I love this area and my companion, but my guess is that I will be leaving.  I have been here for three transfers and two of those have been with the same companion.  But, you never know with President Vest, he likes to throw curve balls sometimes! Stay tuned next week to see what is happening.
