Dear Family and Friends,

This was a great week for me.

The ward took the Bueschers to the Temple to do baptisms and we were able to participate. It was a great experience.  The Bueschers are doing family history so they had names to take to the Temple. I had the opportunity to be baptized for some of their family members. Elder Goro, my companion, baptized me.

I also went on Exchanges with the Platte City Elders. I stayed with Elder Webb. We had a great time together. We biked and walked. We spent some time in Tracy, a little town they cover. I meet all kinds of nice people in that ward when I was there.  I meet one of their investigators named Marisa that is so close to baptism.

We went to a baptism of a lady named Jenn that Some Missionaries in the Ysa branch had taught. It was a great baptism.  You could see how the gospel has blessed her life. It was a little sad that not lots of people from the branch showed up.

Josh is doing great. We are still working with him to get him married. He came to church and loved it and participates more that most of the members. We have been teaching him the commandments this week.

We gave a blessing to Carline this week. She isn't a member but her sister Sam is a member. She wanted a blessing since she has had problems with headaches and had just had a MRI and wanted comfort.  After the blessing we left her with a challenge to read from the Book of Mormon and to pray to know if it is true or not. She said she would.

So Sunday evening we took the Buechers to the Presidents devotional. It was at the Liberty Jail. We heard the testimonies of 5 converts then Sister Buescher got up and shared hers.   It was a great experience.  We then heard from our Mission President and his wife. It was great to listen to their insight. I know that they are doing great things for the mission.

Thanks for all the letters and the prayers. I hope you have a great week.
Elder Allen
