Things are going great in Newport News. The sun is beating in hot, and the humidity is settling in very nicely. Simply put, it's roasting hot in Virginia. It's a good mix of being on the same latitude as Southern Utah and being right next to the Atlantic Ocean.
To fill in on our investigator, F**, we had a great lesson with him this last week on keeping the commandments and we invited him to be baptized in June. He said he has to talk to his wife about it, but he says he has a definite desire! His wife comes up from Puerto Rico to Virginia this weekend! Things should start clicking after that.
We found this really awesome Hispanic man who just moved here from Texas a couple months back. We had knocked the door before he lived and there were only some Pentecostals who weren't interested in hearing from us. Well, we talked with this man named Nazario about the Book of Mormon and he seemed really interested. We're meeting with him next Sunday!! Whenever things like that happen, it just gives me hope that you can always find new people. You can say you've knocked every door of a city and have no one respond to you, but go back a couple months later and find a man or a whole family who have been prepared to be baptized. There is hope!
I went to my first wedding in the mission field. It was a great time. **, the groom is one of our investigators and Y**, the bride is Sister M**'s sister. Lots of fun!
We went out with the M** family for snow cones and Cracker Barrel, and then headed out for Fort Monroe on the coast of Hampton. It was so awesome. In the fort, there's a museum. A lot of famous people have visited or been there. Abraham Lincoln, Edgar Allen Poe, Harriett Tubman, etc. Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederate States in the Civil War, was held prisoner there in that fort. I got a ton of pictures.
