"Maybe White People Aren't Half Bad"

Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

This past week has been another wonderful one.  We're teaching many people and having such a great time (maybe white people aren't half bad). 

One of the reasons that its been so great is because every Thursday evening at 7:00, our stake holds an open house that stake members invite their friends to.  Each week we have less-active members of our stake and people of other faiths joining us for presentations on the different organizations in the Church. Its legit. One ward "sponsors" the open house each week and we're just about done with the opening round and will start back at the first ward again. 

People are genuinely curious on what goes on in a Mormon church or what its like (or at least they are here in Utah...and I imagine its the same everywhere else). 

One of the families that we've grown close to is a mother and father with their two kids.  The parents have had rough lives and in the past years have been getting out of drugs.  The mom has been going to church for a month or so trying to make sure they keep the changes they've already made.  And her 14 year old super rebellious son came to church this past week (we nearly passed out we were so surprised).  On Saturday morning she is getting baptized at 10:00.  We're very excited.

Love ya'll,

-Elder Colton
