Workin' for the Weekend

And hello again!

It's been a good few days since the last time I was able to email: Anand came to church and had a good experience! We're going to try to put him back on date in about a week, he just has some personal things that he has to clear up first, but he still has the intent to be baptized. We haven't been able to get ahold of Diamond recently, so hopefully he's still doing okay. Most of the people we're teaching live in or near the ghettos, which is actually quite fun to serve near, because you meet some characters! Don't worry though, we had to be inside by 7:00 on the 4th of July, so safety wasn't a concern there.

We had a miracle happen on Friday: a less-active member called us and told us that he wants to start coming to church again and meeting with the missionaries. We saw him the next day, and he's a stud! He's super missionary minded, and has a really strong testimony for someone that hasn't been super active in the Church! He came to church on Sunday as well!

Also on Friday, I got to go back to Bourbonnais, because there was a YSA-aged man that got baptized that is thinking about giving the YSA a shot. It's tough for people in that area to come to the YSA ward, because it's about a 70 minute drive. It was fun to see some familiar faces, I saw Brother Anderson, the Beyers, and Bishop Freedlund.

Elder Campbell and I got matching t-shirts today at Dick's, so you can say the level of companionship unity is on point!

Talk to you again soon!

Elder Dallas Anderson
