Take it Easy

Well hello there family! Great to be talking to you again. Always love the chance I have to share awesome miracles.
Well I'm just going to get down to it. This is what you have been waiting for!!! The chance of a life time is knocking on your door! Opportunity is throwing small pebbles at your window waiting for you to pay attention to it. Success is rolling on through like a freight train plummeting straight for you...OK that's all I got.
Seriously though, this last week was awesome. Starting with the major news, Ashley Brooks, The Poke'fanatic, Entered the waters of baptism on Saturday, April 16th. It was so amazing. She asked me to baptize her and she asked Elder Anderson to confirm her. We confirmed her after the baptism because we had stake conference this last Sunday. But It has been such a crazy ride with her. We have gone from her not even wanting to talk to us to her really understanding the concept of baptism and accepting the truthfulness behind what we share. She is so crazy to. After i lifted her out of the water, instead of wiping her face like someone might think to do, she shakes her head violently (like a dog would do) to get the water out of her face. She cracks me up. She is actually a very funny girl as well. She has mental situations and an ADD disorder but she is hilarious. I'm so happy for her and her decision that she made to be baptized. She is an awesome kid. And she has taught me A LOT about 1. Patience and 2. Pokemon hahaha. Good times.
Also, a sweet miracle that happened. Last Sunday, an individual came to church that I never recognized, we didn't have the chance to talk to him before he walked out the door and it was very disappointing. Well we asked around and found out the members he was sitting with and got in contact with him. We found out his name is Adam (last name disclosed). He is an awesome kid. He is 24 years old and the best way to describe him and the church is that he is in love with it haha. I am in love with him! just kidding...but seriously. Adam is so cool and is super solid. We have taught him everyday since we found him and he on schedule to be baptized on the 30th. He actually set and interview up with the bishop (on his own) and talked with him for about 30 minutes. He told the bishop that the only problem he had with being baptized on the 30th is that it wasn't soon enough. This is what he wants. He wants to be a part of this and he knows its true. He came to stake conference and he also came to the fireside we had last night. He is awesome.
Then there is also a young girl we are teaching that we found this week. Her name is Kelly. She has always been interested in the church but she was living with her inactive boyfriend that is against the Church. So she was never presented with the opportunity to learn. But now somethings have changed and she is not in the same situation any more. Now we are teaching her and she loves what she is learning. It makes me so happy to see when people have the chance to embrace this wonderful truth we have.
I love you all so much. I hope your week was as amazing as mine. Let us all remember the advice of The Eagles and lets "Take it easy"!
Love, Elder Pierce
