Mission Madness

Happy March Madness everyone! 

First things first, I just wanted everyone to be aware that I'm currently leading the Iowa Des Moines Mission MLC bracket with 590 pts and was perfect through the first round ;) #PRIDEFULL 

Haha on to the actual important stuff this week. 

Holy cow this week was dope! We had a great week and got a ton of work done!

The coolest thing that happened this week was that our home girl Kara passed her Baptismal interview!! She's finna get baptized this coming Saturday! I'm pumped!  Kara is so prepared, it's awesome to see how much she's grown in the past 6 weeks. She's super humble and just willing to accept all that Heavenly Father has in store for her. It's honestly been a learning experience for me teaching Kara and learning how to be more willing to submit my will to our Heavenly Father's like she does. 

But yeah she came to Church yesterday for the 4th time and her kids came again this week. She's all ready to go and invited her mom and all her kids to be there. So it'll be a great moment. She's got an awesome fellowshipper as well which we're pumped about. The Ward's really coming together, they haven't had a baptism for awhile so they are way excited. We are beginning to work with her 4 kids as well so we should be helping them to get baptized in the near future. Stoked for that as well. 

A lot of other good things happened this week as well. Found some new people to teach, we've been working with another cool family getting them ready to progress and keep commitments. We've also been working with our cool member referral Jamaylah. She's tight and should be getting baptized next month. Things are on the upswing here in the city of Burlington. The whole Nauvoo zone actually is doing amazing. I'm super proud of all the members in the zone we get to lead and help. They are all straight studs. 

Well that's all I have for this week. Please everyone remember #PRAYFORKARA she's awesome but everyone could use prayers the week before their baptism :)

Love y'all!
