Hey y'all! It's been another great week! I got to go on a couple exchanges this past week with some other Elders. On Tuesday, Elder Bayles from the Spanish branch came over to New Haven to speak some English for a change. He just barely came out this transfer. It was cool to see all the progress he has made as a missionary. Then on Friday, I got to go on an exchange with Elder Strobel and he came to New Haven too so that was a good time.

We weren't able to have a lesson with Preston this past week cause work has kept him slammed! He told us that 3 life guards just randomly got up and left and quit right in the middle of their shifts. He is the head at that pool so he had to cover for all 3 of them. This kept him from meeting with us which was a bummer. He said he has tonight off so we will  hopefully be seeing him at dinner with the member that introduced him to us!

We were able to go and see Susan again this week and she is just the sweetest thing ever. She's been trying to do all these projects around her house by herself so we showed up in service clothes and told her to put us to work! While we were helping her with her yard, she came out with some lemonade for us and just kept saying how grateful she was. After our service, we went inside and had an awesome discussion with her. The spirit was so strong when we testified of baptism to her. She said she'll pray about it. She also came to church yesterday again and the members just love her! We are excited to see her again this next week. Our next project with her is ripping out some wood flooring. That should be exciting!

We are going to have a baptism this Saturday! It's a part member family that we have been teaching for awhile. The dad's name is David and he is so excited to get baptized! If everything goes well, it should be done this Saturday!

The Lord has been pouring out blessings all over Tulsa lately and it's so cool to be able to be a part of that. This truly is the Lord's work and it will be done His way. As soon as we submit our will to his, we can be an instrument in his hand to help accomplish His work. Much love to all of you and I hope this next week is real swell.
