Lily and Eliouse

Hey family! 
This last week has been pretty amazing. Elder Kelly and I are continually teaching and trying to find time for some letter writing haha. Work is going great! It sounds like the missionary work back home is going great also! 
This first picture is with our investigator Lily. She is Chinese and can cook some bomb food! As for the teaching she has really progressed. A while back she prayed to ask if God could help her with interpreting and understanding. A month later she could understand 1 Nephi 8. Lily is set to be baptized on August 30th. 
The second picture is of last weeks baptism and it was amazing! The first in the ward for two years. Kinda crazy. Everything in the baptism worked out perfectly and I was actually asked to be a spotter because she felt more comfortable with me in there. The one thing that stuck out to me while we were teaching Eliouse was that when we put her on date for baptism we promised her that her sick sister that was in the hospital would be there. And she actually made it. Everything lined up perfectly and it ended up being the best baptism that the mission presidency has seen in the mission. 
The last picture is of the hike that we went on today. It was up to the top of Beacon Rock. It was pretty sweet! You could see the entire gorge. It was pretty fun but the humidity and sun was pretty hot. But so far I am loving Vancouver. Not a big fan of Portland but Vancouver makes up for it. The weather here is amazing even though it rains almost everyday from fall to spring. 
I have learned so much this last transfer! The people we meet and are bringing closer to Christ and his teachings. It's amazing to have the opportunity to help others and bring them through the trials and tribulations that they have. We wouldn't be able to do this without Heavenly Father's help! It's an awesome feeling to know that God has our back as long as we are doing what's right. 
Love you!
