Answers to Prayers . . .

January 6, 2014

Dear Family,

I am so glad that you are all doing so well back at home and that you had a great 2013 year!! It is so weird to think that another year has come and gone just like that!!  Dylan, congratulations on reading so much in the Book of Mormon!!  The Book of Mormon that I use hear is really my most prized possession right now!!  I can't imagine not having it!!  Also, congrats on your basketball game!! Parker, also congrats on your basketball game.  Sounds like you guys are having a lot of fun!!  How is baseball practices going as well??  Are you doing the things that we learned??  Mom, thank you for sharing the experience of going to the Cloward Family baptism!!  That is so cool that Wyatt got to baptize Jace.  So funny to think that we all grew up together!!  Such a long time ago!!  Dad, thank you for the news about the dishwasher, but we have it a lot better here in the DR...  we have FOUR dishwashers (Me, Pedersen, Fallentine, and Darby)....  !!!  :) Thank you for all of the updates!!!

So now on to the investigators!!  Right now, we don't have a whole lot of people with baptismal dates, still just Danilsa and her family. Carolina was not able to come to church, so we are going to have to move her fecha!!  But the rest are still doing well, so if they want to be baptized on the 18 then they can, or they can wait until Carolina can be!!

Enmanuel told us something interesting...  His girlfriend said that she wants to marry him!!  We are going to start teaching her as well, and hopefully they can get married and then they can both be
baptized!!  That would be a really happy thing!!  He is also read all the way to Helaman in the Book of Mormon!!

We're guessing they REALLY like hot dogs!

We recently found a lady named Mary!  She is really excited to learn. She first asked some weird questions.  Her first question was if the dinosaurs were real.  Then her next question was where do we go after death.  SO we are teaching about the Plan of Salvation right now.  She said that during the lesson she could tell that what we were saying was true, and not because I told her it was, but because the Holy Ghost told her that it was true!!  Hopefully she progresses well!!

Well,  I hope you have a great new year, and that you all continue to be strong and grow in the gospel!!  Thank you for your emails and letters!!

Love you all,
Elder Garrett McEwan
