Dear Family and Friends,
This last week was an interesting week for us. This weekend was great weather for us. It is like 70's.
We were able to find the Tolands. We were driving in Iola and found a pink house. We tracted the street and the next-door neighbor was the Tolands. They said to come back Friday. They were there for that appointment.  They are an older couple that have met missionaries before.  He had stroke a couple of years ago.  They both have been given Books of Mormons before just haven't read them.
We meet with Scott also this week. His addition is about done so they didn't have anything that we could help on.  We finally have met his girlfriend. We were able to give them another Book of Mormon and committed them to read.
We meet with Mason. We watched the Restoration video with him. We are trying to get him to feel what he felt at the time of his conversion. I love watching the video with people.  It can teach about Joseph Smith so much better with them being able to see it.
This week we also go some bad news. One of our investigator name Myra died this weekend. She is the daughter in law to the Pass family.   We don't know what happened. I hope she felt the Spirit and will accept the Gospel in the Sprit World. I hope this will help the Pass family take care of the things to make it to the temple.
Church was great. We had Tina, the Mother of the Pass family, come. She came by herself. The talks were awesome.  They were like they were talking to me.  There were on the power of prayer. I think they also help Sister Pass out with this tragedy in her family.
After church we went with Brother Taylor to see Sister Billington. She is home bound with back problems. We brought the sacrament to her and gave her a blessing. She is having a surgery this week. I hope it will help with the pain. I love being able to help these people like giving them the sacrament.
I'm excited for this week. We have a mission conference with a 70 coming. We also have Zone training and a wedding to go to. It just means lots of driving to be done.
I hope you all have a great week. Be safe and look for opportunities to share the gospel with those around you.
