Miracles are real. Pray for them. Expect them.

Hey family & friends!
Awesome, awesome Easter week!  I probably watched the "Because of Him" video no fewer than 20 times with showing it to everybody.  I also figured out the first little part on piano.  Such a good video!

Jared's baptism went so well!  His dad got to baptize and confirm him!  Next stop: temple!  Also, they had Capri Suns after the baptism.  First time in years I've had one, I think.  Where have they been all my life?

Dustin's getting ready for baptism this weekend also!  He's so solid--he walked by himself to church in the gale-force winds yesterday morning so he could be baptized this coming weekend!  He's so excited for it!  One night when we had a lesson over there, he had his friend, Bryson, come over too.  Turns out, Bryson lives in a house we've been knocking on for weeks without them being home ever after we received them as a referral!  And he totally said he wants to be baptized, too!  We stopped by yesterday night and, though he wasn't home, we talked to his dad Tom.  There's no mom there, just those two, and the dad's not a member of this Church either.  He took the lessons about 10 years ago, he said, and wants to sit in on our lessons for Bryson, and he offered to feed us dinner this week as well!  Holy miracle and a half!  This family-->eternal.

I got to go on exchanges this week to Highland!!  Oh my goodness, it was so much fun!  We got to see Chriss and Brittney and Jessie!  Chriss is doing sooo well.  I feel like I could truly understand Alma when reuniting with his friends: "Therefore Alma did rejoice exceedingly to see his brethren; and what added more to his joy, they were still his brethren in the Lord," (Alma 17:2).  It showed me even more the depth to which I love all these people I've worked with and gotten to know and taught and learned from for the last little while.  It's pretty deep.

Every year, the week before Easter, a nearby stake does this thing called "Walk With Christ," where they transform their church building into... I don't even really know how to describe it.  It's a journey where you learn more of the birth, life, and death of Christ.  The website is  I don't know how helpful the site is, having never been there, but maybe there's more info on it.  Good luck!  In any case, we took a bunch of people there this week, including Miko.  She really loved it!  She's feeling the Spirit more and more, and we know big things are going to happen due to her great example back home!

Oh, shout out to the Kubies!  And Heather!  You crazy love birds! (Two of Katie's friends got married this weekend!) 
Love you all!  Miracles are real.  Pray for them.  Expect them.
