Dear Family and Friends,

This week was a busy week for Elder Goro and I.  

We were able to meet our new mission President for the first time this week. We had interviews with him and his wife. The Vests are great people and very funny. The interviews took like an hour longer for our group than planned. They are from Texas and have served in many callings. He served a mission in Japan many years ago.

We taught Josh the third lesson, the one about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are working with him and his Girlfriend to get them married so he can be baptized. He came to church with Michel and had a good experience. He even met with Bishop to ask if he could marry them.

We taught the Bueschers the plan of Salvation again with their home teachers. It was awesome.   They were asking questions that most people don't think about.  On Sunday evening we went to the Historic Liberty Jail with them. That was a great experience. I hadn't been since the first day that I had arrived in the mission field.  We got a tour by a sister missionary that gave us a history lesson then took us to the replica. It was a small place for 6 men to spend a long time in.  The prophet did get some great revelations when he was there.

We also found some new people to teach. One of them let us right in and asked us some questions. We left him with a Book of Mormon.  I hope he reads some by the time we come back.

We learned that Tasos is moving to live with a different daughter in this next week.  He says that this is good because he then can be baptized just not here in our ward.  I hope that daughter is more receptive to the church and will let him go and be baptized.

One of the members took us to Outback Steak House this week. It was some good steak.

Thanks of all the letters. I hope you all have a great week. Be safe

Elder Allen
