Christopher's baptism went great and was well attended. Leo and Brother Naelgus gave talks. Christopher was beaming after as he gave his testimony. He was way happy.

We followed up with the members after the baptism, at church, and at some of their houses to see if they had given The Book of Mormon away to someone. We got quite a few referrals and contacted one yesterday. A really nice family that lives close by. We taught and got a return appointment.

We taught several investigators life after death. That has been a subject people have had a lot of questions about. We would read to them from The Book of Mormon which gives some clear answers, and supports the Bible. Sister Lumanduz really enjoyed the lesson on life after death.

I am grateful for the knowledge we have about life's 3 big questions. Where did I come from? Why are we here? And where are we going after this life? It puts life into perspective, things that are important and things that are not. This is one of the many blessings we have because of The Restoration.

Merson Gregorio is doing great. He takes notes when we come over to teach. He will have his [baptismal] interview this week. Brother Fang has been twice, but is a student of accounting and they have had some activities at school, and he missed the last two weeks at church. He should hopefully start progressing again this week.

Janmar Sales is also progressing very well. He is 11 and loves primary. The problem is trying to get his family back to activity. His dad has some word of wisdom problems and is to a little scared to come back. The members are the key with him.

I have loved it here in Aurora. Transfers are this week, we shall see what happens.

I know God lives. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that this church, which was established by Jesus Christ, was restored through him. I know Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet on earth today.

Thanks for your prayers.
