Fun FHE and Father's Day Celebrations!

This week we had Amairani do a family home evening.  I don’t know if you remember her but she is super strong but just can’t get baptized until she turns 18.  She has already shared the gospel with like 3 friends!  She shared a scripture and then for the activity we played Minute To Win It and the punishment for losing was a plate of frosting on your face!  It was so fun!  I was going to take a picture but my camera is dead and I lost my charger but there is a picture on Instagram somewhere.  And her mom stayed for it so hopefully we have built our relationship with her.  Even if we did build our relationship, Amairani switched custody to her cousin, whom she is going to live with in August in California.  And the cousin has had a lot of bad experiences with Mormons so that’s no help but Amairani is strong so she will be fine.

And Christian, we have been working with him for 3ish weeks now and he is going to get baptized on Sunday!  Well, Saturdays are best for his family but this Saturday is stake conference, so he will either get baptized on Sunday or next Saturday.  And then we will start teaching the family and I think his 9yr old sister and his dad will get baptized no problem.  Can’t wait!

And then Saturday the ward had a Father’s Day activity.  We went to a park and played a huge soccer game.  Boy was it toasty!  But some of the old Hispanics here are so good!  Like Hermano Torres, a 65yr old man from Honduras.  He was the man!  He played goalie and he blocked every shot and even jumped to grab some.  Then there were a bunch of 40year olds that were super good too. You probably saw videos from Hermana Diaz.  The guy in the yellow Brasil jersey is my companion Elder Preece.  He scored the first goal and then at the very end I scored the last one.  I wish our ward had huge soccer matches, haha! 

BTW the talk "The Atonement and the Journey of Mortality" by Bednar is super good.  And "What is The Blueprint of Christ’s Church" by McCallister.  If someone read the last one, they would be baptized on the spot!  It explains how we are the only church exactly like Christ's and it does it with the bible.

p.s. Happy Fathers Day if I never said it.  Love you.

p.p.s. Any news of a plane in your future?

p.p.p.s. How about the new iPhone? New BMW i series?  Tesla model C?

p.p.p.p.s. 7 minute work out app on your phone. Its green, recommended by all the doctors here in Texas.  They say "A 7-minute work out is better than a 0-minute one."  We were informed by a member shadowing a doctor so it’s legit.  And it’s good for everyone, fit or not
