Hello Family!
Good job mom for getting through that medical test, I am proud of you. I was glad to hear from Shane, Ryan, and other cousins. I am glad to hear about the good things that go on with you all. There was a baptism yesterday. It was great and a young 19 year old was baptized. It was really great to see, and I was able to interview him, so it was good to get to know him a little bit. We wanted as a zone to write the favorite thing about the zone today, and I enjoy serving around hard working missionaries, especially some of the sister missionaries work very hard, do not stop, and they have been getting baptisms. There will also be people baptized on the 4 and 5 of June. We have you to find and investigator that becomes progressing. ONe of our less active members did come to church though which was really cool and essential for her. It has been a great joy to see it with others, but I feel as if I need to be working harder. Another missionary had a cool experience he told me while he was on exchanges. they had worked hard, very hard trying to find people, nothing happened. They stopped working as hard, they were given a referral, and the person was later baptized. the moral is not that you do not need to work hard, but the moral is that if you do work hard, the Lord will bless you, bless the people, in his own time, and he gives us experiences like that to know that nothing is impossible without the Spirit or the help of the Lord. I know that people can be found, but I feel like my desire and work and love fo the people just needs to grow stronger. I am glad that through the gospel we can progress, and through Christ we can become different people, people that can make a difference in many lives. Next week will be zone conference, so I am glad to talk and here from president the last time at zone conference, although there will be one more chance in zone leader council in the next month. We really have a great president. The weather has been beautiful, and everything is turning green, and there are also pretty yellow dandelions around, and I really do enjoy the weather right now. It was a little cool still, but today is lovely. Thanks for the care mom. All of those things sound good, but could you not send mango or cranberry. I hope you are all doing very well. Love each other often and big. I love you all. -Elder Larson
