19 July 2010

Hey family!
Well this was one of the most rewarding weeks of my mission. So i don't know if you all remember Craig Lento? I baptized him about a year ago in South Shore Long Island, when i was serving with Elder Alder. Craig is 26 years old, He got his mission call to serve in the Las Vegas mission about a month ago. He will go into the MTC on August 4th i think. Well this week on Thursday I got to go to the Manhattan Temple with him, he asked me to be his escort. For him to receive his endowment. It was really special! He liked it allot and we got to talk with one of the counselors in the temple presidency. It seriously was one of the crowning moments of my mission. Craig is a completely different person now i cant believe it. Maybe Justin and him will be in the mtc at the same time? It is pretty cool to see a man that you baptize on your mission go on a mission before you finish your mission, it doesn't happen very often. Well the work is going... We are trying to find a family to teach and baptize. I love you all and i love the Lord Jesus Christ
Hurrah For Israel
