Letter received April 19, 2014

Dearest Family,
Oh my goodness, what an amazing day!  We had 5 member presents!  Super fun day.  It was a very spiritual lesson teaching Regina and Wakita for me.  They are getting baptized on April 19th and they came to us this evening having doubts.  Not bad doubts, just usual doubts when one is taking a big step.  As the opening prayer was being said the thought came to mind to, in a way, praise or thank them for having doubts.  I shared with them Joseph Smith's experience right before he had the first vision and that when we are close to having a spiritual experience that Satan is going to do everything he can to doubt or change our minds.  It was amazing to see the doubt and fear basically melt away from Regina as we shared these things.  She said she felt at peace.  It was amazing!  There will always be opposition when we start to choose the right.  Well it was an awesome week altogether!  We taught 11 member present lessons with 6 in a members home which is awesome.  It's been so warm lately it's helped a lot.  And it's raining today of course.  Fun stuff.  I'm looking forward to Easter weekend with the baptism and the celebration of Christ's eternally important resurrection!  How are things back home?  All the roads repaired yet?  Got my tires pumped up on my bike getting ready to break them out.  I enjoy walking more but if we have long distances we'll go with bikes.  Gonna have to start carrying water or Gatorade as the heat settles in.   Gotta stay hydrated.  Still sitting around 150 lbs...which is nice.  Sorry about being late with last weeks letter...meetings happened and time flew by.  Hope you have a great week.  Love you!
Much love,
Elder G
