Put God first

It really was great to see you all yesterday! I told you already about our sweet lesson with H where we taught him the Restoration, Plan of Salvation, Gospel of Jesus Christ, Word of Wisdom, Law of Chastity, and Law of Tithing, plus we set a baptismal date with him for May 19th! He really is amazingly prepared to receive the gospel. You can definitely tell a difference between someone who is sincerely seeking for truth and someone who doesn't really care.

We did also have a good lesson with G this week, too. We taught him the Plan of Salvation and he really understands when we teach him. He's just very hesitant to commit to come to church and to be baptized. He's studied a lot of different churches and is a little leery of committing whole heartedly to one just yet.

Also, I forgot to tell y'all that on Sunday at church we had 3 investigators and a less-active family who hasn't been in about 4 years come! It was a great meeting (despite the fact that I had to give a talk). S is the daughter of Sh and they are both really great. S usually comes to mutual and has been to church before, but it was a big step for Sh to come. Hopefully we can set a baptismal date with them soon as well.

I love you all and am very happy to hear about the things happening in your lives. I want you all to know the gospel is true. Even though life gets hard and hectic sometimes, if we put God first, it will all be for our good. But it's a continual process we need to go through and live.
