Also, this week, the Santa Rosa Stake launched the "MINI-MISSION" for this year, it involves the youth ages 16-17, and had them paired up with us missionaries and also live in our apartments for 3 days to experience how to be in the mission. We got Bailee and Sarah, who are both 17, and they loved it! They bore their testimonies most of the time, and I love their spirit! We had great time preaching the gospel and helping them learn more about some missionary skills, we went tracking a lot for the space of 2 days, and did some street contacting, and they had the chance to lead it, so they pretty enjoyed every moment while on their mini-mission. I loved the testimony meeting we had with them, I just love hearing the great spiritual experiences that they had, and how this activity strengthened their faith and testimonies.... The Lord is indeed hastening His Work. . They are really lucky they had this wonderful experience and they will be MORE prepared when the time of their mission comes. I could just imagine.HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

Meeting of the Century!
This week has been wonderful! (I ALWAYS HAVE A GREAT WEEK!) Our zone meeting was super edifying, with Elder Hyde and Windholz teaching and motivating us to move forward with the work, especially our vision 101 this coming July (it means we are working for 101 baptisms) and what's amazing is that Sister Alba announced that this week, we are going to have 61 baptisms! Imagine that! Please help us pray for these people :) It gave us chills and we are so excited for the forthcoming "meeting of the century" on June 23rd! Have you heard about it? Our Zone Leaders emphasized and quoted from Elder Nelson, that.. "THIS IS THE MEETING OF THE CENTURY! MISSIONARY WORK AS WE KNOW IT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE FOREVER. THE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH WILL SEE SOMETHING THAT THEY THOUGHT THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN IN THEIR LIFETIME!" --- we were just soooo pumped up to work harder! Everyone here is so thrilled with what is going to happen. The First Presidency entitled it "The Work of Salvation."
