We're being richly blessed here!

Hey, family & friends!
This might be short--sorry!
Also, as of July 1, our mission address will be changing to:
135 S. 7th Ave.
Pocatello, ID 83201
For all those MILLIONS of letters coming in.  (But I'm not bitter.)
(You've only got 5 more weeks to write her, She'll be home in 6 weeks! Her current address is on the right. It's the address you will want to use til the end of June!)

So miracle: remember Harley?  The awesome new convert my first weekend here?  Well, his brother, Austin, and his mom just moved up from Arizona.  And now we're teaching Austin!  And he's getting baptized this month!  And his mom is interested and we're going to send the family elders to her!  For one thing, we didn't have a baptism lined up for this month, but God saw fit to bless us with this miracle!  But more importantly, this is a FAMILY!  And we're only in Young Single Adult work!  This is the first family I've seen baptized (a few reactivated as a result of a child getting baptized, yes, but all getting baptized?  No.) on my mission, and we're not even working with families!  What a miracle to see the promise come to pass that the Gospel blesses families.  We haven't met the mom, yet, but the brothers seem close, and the Gospel's going to bring them all even closer!
Also, a ward member's sister just moved in with him for the summer!  He converted a few years back and is the only member in his family.... for now :)  We taught her a lesson with him and a few good friends from the ward, and she just ate it up!  She's so receptive and so sweet, and we can tell this is going to be a wonderful process for their family too, even if it's just the two of them here.  They'll be a light to the rest of the family, too!
Caleb is fantastic!  His faith is growing SO much and so quickly!  He's already finished   1 Nephi, and he's a lot more receptive to seeing God's hand in his life!  We can tell he's right on that cusp of recognizing and accepting the truth into his life!
I wish I could tell you in detail the miracles we've been seeing daily.  There's no time, and there's no way.  Suffice it to say we're being richly blessed here.  I know that diligence and obedience are divine principles.  "Stick to your task till it sticks to you!"  Though things may be hard, the fun is IN the hard work, not just in addition to or after or instead of.  I love work, and this is the best work there is!
Love you all!
