August 6th, 2012

Things are going great still here in Burlington.  Our investigator jerry wasn't at church on Sunday though so we might have to push the date back one week to make sure he comes to church.  But that's ok he still wants to be baptized and is doing good.  Those 4 referrals we got were awesome!   We taught them on Tuesday and they loved the lesson we were there for 2 hours and still didn't finish the restoration.   We invited them to baptism and they said if they know its true they would.   We got Camille to say the closing prayer for us and in her prayer she said thanks for bringing these boys over and shedding so much light on so many different things.   It was awesome!   She asked us several times throughout the lesson how we are so knowledgeable about the scriptures and about life in general, haha!  They were really impressed it was great!   The spirit was definitely present and directing the discussion.  The pageant is over =(   It was such a great experience to work at the pageant and to meet so many people.  I made really good friends with the guy who plays Joseph Smith and his wife that was really cool.  He would come talk to me every time he saw me.   I know he wasn't the real Joseph Smith but playing that part gave him an enormous amount of the spirit and you could feel it every time you talked to him.  It was awesome!   If you haven't seen the pageant you need to see it next year because it is amazing!   We got to watch it on Wednesday, it was SO good, and very spiritual.   It teaches all about the church and the restoration its so great. Saturday was the last day of pageant and we got to stay and help take it all down we were there till 2 in the morning taking everything down and loading it all up.  It was a long night. We didn't get to bed till 3 than had to be up for church in the morning.  Luckily we got a 3 hour approved nap after church.  That was sweet!   I love you all and appreciate all the support.
Love Elder  Jach
