Mother's Day

[NOTE] We had a great visit with Elder Record yesterday. He was able to talk with his Mom who was traveling back to Utah from Arizona. The rest of the family followed up with a call on speaker phone.

Since I talked to most everyone, I'll just write about a couple experiences I've been having. We went to go contact a referral this week in the Brayton area. We had one of the Priests from the Rabbit Creek ward with us. It was kind of funny because we thought we went to the right place but we ended up going to the wrong address. The people there weren't the people we were trying to contact so we asked if we could share what we had with them. They said no, so we asked if they knew anyone who would. They told us to go see the people downstairs. So we went to go see them. A little girl answered the door so we asked if her mom was there. The mom came and invited us in and we taught her the message of the restoration. She invited us back to teach her with her husband how that message will bless our families. It was really neat to see. It's the first time I can remember being invited in from the doorstep and then being able to come back. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share the gospel and it's an amazing feeling to be able to talk with someone about it who wants to know.

We also had the opportunity to be a part of [Name withheld]'s baptism. He was baptized and confirmed by a young man in the ward who is about to go on a mission. Wes also received the priesthood from his little brother who ordained him to the office of a priest. Wes bore a powerful testimony. You could tell how much he loves the Lord.

Love you all =) Happy Mothers Day again to all the wonderful mothers! Thanks for all you do in helping us to become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Love, Elder Record
