Things are going awesome this week. Winter is done, all the trees are blossoming, its up to 70s now, and Collette and the kids are getting baptized!!! Like you were saying Mom and Dad, The Lord has amazing timing. We've been teaching Cole and she has quit smoking, drinking alcohol, drinking coffee and tea, and her family especially her dad has been giving her a hard time about it. Last week we taught about the Plan of Salvation and a few days later her dad had a heart attack and has been very sick, so Cole flew out to Kentucky over the weekend to see him. She has been such an amazing example of faith and strength to her family. When she learned about the Word of Wisdom and that Heavenly Father wants her to take care of her body and wants to bless her, she completely stopped everything. She looks so much healthier and you can see her countenance is brighter. Before she left for Kentucky we gave her a blessing of comfort and strength because she was way stresed out. I spoke, and after the blessing she just gave a big sigh and started crying. She said she felt so peaceful and loved and the spirit was so strong. We had been talking about what the priesthood was to the kids, and after the blessing, no matter how much they understood the concepts they understood the feeling and power of the priesthood. Even tho that wasn't the first time I had given a blessing it was definitely the most powerful time and it has strengthened my testimony of God's power that has been restored here on the earth. I love this gospel so much, it makes people so happy! This Saturday at 4 is going to be so cool. Matt gets to baptize all four of them! And the next day during sacrament mtg Matt is confirming Cole, Elder Deming is confirming one of the twins (Jaqlyn) their grandpa is confirming the other twin (Jayla), and I am confirming the 10 yr old boy (Oakley). Its gonna be awesome!

Other than that there is not much happening. We have about 6or 7 very potential investigators, we just need their friends to invite them. Transfers are coming up on the 28th and Elder Deming will probly be leaving. We shall see. I love you all so much, thanks for everything!

Love Elder Kendric Hale =)
