That's cool that you met Elder Madsen. (One of Rochelle's friends told her that a guy moved into his Ward south of BYU campus and he had gone to Canada Calgary on his mission and just got home. He said that this guy had all good things to say about Elder Dowd, including the fact that he was the funniest Elder in their mission! Well, we had him to dinner on Sunday night and really enjoyed visiting about the mission.)
This last week was great we had another baptism. Our investigator Josh got baptized. It was really great. The spirit was really strong. The Bishop of this ward baptized him. Tthen on Sunday Elder Orozco confirmed him.
We had some other great miracles this week. We got some really solid referrals and we had a Filipino lady come to church on Sunday. We will be teaching her this week.
It rained most of the week. President Archibald leaves this Sunday so I have been kinda sad about that. I will really miss him.
Other than that not too much happened this week. The Book of Mormon is true. God lives and His son is Jesus Christ. We can all be together forever as a family. I love you all!
Love, Elder Dowd
PS: We are always joking with other missionaries about turtles and an Elder in my district showed me a scripture so I think you should read it. It proves that turtles are doctrine, Songs of Solomon 2:12 - 12 The aflowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the bturtle is heard in our land;
