Found a 'lost sheep' this week

Hello!! (: I'm glad you and the kids liked the letters!! I will hope to keep them all coming! And Grandma is so awesome! But yeah I'll write her again soon! It's hard cause I can only write letters on Monday.... so yeah (:

But yes, he [bike man] was soooo nice! we are planning on going back. We didn't get to go back last week... but soon! And dad mentioned he wanted his address... and I'll get that soon as well!
That is so good to hear that dad can still continue to teach the UVU class! That is such a blessing! Heavenly Father really will answer our prayers if we just have faith (:
So yesterday, Elder Dopp and I found a "lost sheep."  She was walking down the street, and we decided to go talk to her. Her name is Kimmy, and It turns out that she was raised in a foster home in Hawaii, and she was adopted into a Mormon family. (I think?) but she was never baptized... She attended church for a few years, and then moved out. We were talking to her and we invited her to come back to church and she said she would love it! Then we helped her carry her groceries home and she was so appreciative of our help. We then said a prayer with her and she loved it. We set up an appointment to meet with her for tomorrow so that should be good (: 

I don't remember if I told you last week, but we were teaching Ezekial and it was going good, until his dad (A retired pastor for a different church) came in and gave us a lecture on how he believed the Book of Mormon was not the word of God.... Well, we went back this past week and talked with both of them, and we invited them to be baptized, to read the Book of Mormon, and to pray about its truthfulness. And they accepted the baptismal date of May 11th (: Woooo!!!! Hopefully Heavenly Father tells them it's true! 

Beverly came to church this week. She had to leave early, but from what a member told us, she said she liked it (: woo! Hopefully she can keep progressing!! That would be awesome!

This work is so amazing! It is often referred to as "the hardest thing I've ever loved to do" (: It's so true. Missionary work is awesome! I hope all is well back home! Love and miss you all!
