Heaven on Earth

Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

This past week has been interesting.  It fees like Heaven on earth still.  Our stake president (aka leader over a few congregations) called us in for a special meeting.  His name is President Kafusi and is Tongan and he is legit.  He told us that our new area is 60% minority (Hispanic, Tongan, and African) and most of those are not members of our church.  Normally in the English wards, they focus on sharing the Gospel with other English speakers (which is normal because they can't really communicate with the other ones).  But he talked about how he wants all the English members start sharing with their non-English neighbors.   We're meeting with nearly everyone in our wards and Spanish Branch to invite at least one person to have a lesson with us in their home.  

At church this past Sunday, a 16 year old named Jair brought his friend to church with him (Joel).  Joel has already decided that he wants to be baptized.  He lives with his grandparents and doesn't seem to have much direction in his life and the Gospel and Church are going to help him so much.

Love ya'll,
-Elder Colton
