School is out!

I'm grateful to live in a family established on the teachings of the prophets.  Going on a mission has shown me what an enormous difference there is between a firm Gospel family and the opposite.

My English class is winding down now.  I just gave the final exams and then graded them.  It took almost 4 hours to do that, which didn't leave much of our P-day.  Oh well.   The school has let out for the summer, so teachers are off, too.  I get to be a full-time missionary all the time!  I look forward to that.

We have an investigator in our area who is doing very well.  He was introduced to the Gospel by a new member of the ward who happens to be the father of one of our missionaries.  Because this mission is comprised mostly of Mongolians, and because the country has a limited number of cities, it is common for missionaries from Ulaanbaatar to serve in this city and even see their family often.

So it is with this new member.  Anyway, because he recently received the Aaronic Priesthood, we are helping him to prepare to baptize his young co-worker who is very excited about the Gospel.  The 25-year-old comes to Church every Sunday and he wants to go on a mission as soon as possible (one year) after he is baptized.  It's great to see how happy he is in the Gospel. And it's great to see how these friends can strengthen each other.
