Elder Ballard, Elder Maynes and Elder Risenmay

Hello everyone!

Thanks for the letters and the emails again. They are always appreciated.

This week was awesome! We had a couple of slow days but that's ok, it happens every now and then. We had some miracles happen again as we were visiting with a part-member family this week. They opened up to us about some struggles they have been going through and then they committed to come to church and they actually did. We had one of his member co-workers come to church with him to fellowship him.

Now the big highlight for the week was on saturday when Elder Ballard, Elder Maynes and Elder Risenmay came and talked to all of the missionaries in the Washington Kennewick Mission. They talked a lot about working hard and setting goals to help push us. It was really cool to shake their hands and to listen to the things they felt inspired to tell us. Afterwards we took a big group photo and then headed to another stake center to have lunch. It was a lot of fun to see a bunch of old companions again and other people from my MTC district.

I just want to say how grateful I am for the gospel. It gives so much direction and comfort to know where the straight and narrow path is and to know that Christ always has his hand extended when we fall off. The Atonement and repentance are wonderful things that allow us to fix things from the past and gives us strength and determination to do whats right despite difficult times. The Book of Mormon is true, there is no doubt in my mind that it is true and because I know its true then we have the true church and a prophet is leading and guiding it today.

I hope that you all have a great week and go out and talk to someone you could share the gospel with!

Elder Young
