Pres. Bell taking a selfie at a Sister's baptism

It's been a good week here in Kansas.  The work is moving along quickly and there is never a dull moment. The investigator I talked about last week is going to be baptized on the 19th. He is really ready. Yesterday he told us that his family wasn't very happy with his decision but he knew that the church is the only true church and he wasn't going to let their opinion change his decision. He's been making great strides towards baptism and his testimony grows everyday. Last night we had a super powerful lesson in a member's home. It was an incredibly spiritual experience. Speaking of dinner in a member's home, the member that we had dinner with grew up in Rawlins, WY and knows who Jeremy is. He said that Jeremy was a few years older than him but he knew they called him Uno. Also the wife's grandpa is Glen Shaw's brother, I guess it really is a small world. This week has been full of miracles and priesthood blessings.  We have given four or five blessings to people this week. There is one member who is from Dodge City who is in the hospital here in Garden and we visit her and have given her a couple of blessings. She is recovering from a stroke and is doing well. It just goes to show the power of the priesthood and how incredible it really is.
I did get kind of homesick for football Saturday when a couple of the houses we visited had it playing; I had almost forgotten it was opening weekend. I also got kind of homesick for my jug, the member we ate dinner with last night had a big mug he was drinking out of and it made me miss mine a little.  This week we have like three dinners out in Holcomb, which is where the events in "In Cold Blood" took place. It's kind of weird but I'm pretty excited to go out there.
