This week we had great week! it was awesome! 1st we were able to go on trade offs with the Zone Leaders i was with Elder Marley who is a big baseball player from Arizona! we had a great trade off! we taught a couple of new investigators that they had picked up! these investigators were asking great questions but in one lesson i got pretty fired up. after the lesson i learned that we need to stay calm and let the spirit work in your self and lessons and if you are angry you cant do that! This week we were also able to have dinner with Josh Klock and his family we were suppose to have a branch coordination but we decide to just invite the mission leader to the park that we were eating at with josh. so our mission leader showed up and because he did and because our mission leader is so in tune with the spirit he started talking to josh right away about the Gospel and right there josh told us all his concerns and we were able to talked them out! they next thing you know is Josh to church this sunday! it was awesome! he brought his two little girls. we had a great sacrament meeting about temples and i realized how important temples really are to everything that we do! and josh loved it also and so this week their is a temple trip to the indiapolis temple and josh and his wife have decide to go and take the kids! so pray for them that they will go!!! they lord knows how to best handle everything! one thing that i have learned this week is that the lord shows us our weeknesses so that we can humble our selves and trust in him and as we do that he will make our week things become strong!!! (Ether 12:27) the Lord is also having a baptism on August 1st it is for a Member that has decide to come back to the church! she has come a long way i have been able to work with her since i have been here and it has been an amazing experience! Her testimony and her experiences she has had and she has shared with me have been a real testimony builder for and to me! i know that this Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ is real and that his grace is their to change us and to help us become better! my favortie mormon messegaes are the ones called his grace if you havent seen them watch them and see how The lord has changed these people lifes and if he can do it for them he can do it for us all! Love you all!

we did have to much go on this week we did have a couple great lessons with jada and tim and both of them commited to come to church but neither of them showed up we tried everything we could to get them their but nothing. we Have gotten a new branch mission leader and he is awesome! we have come up with a plan to get more unity with in the branch and to bring members together and to LIFT the attitude of the branch! we call it "Project LIft" based of the mormon message lift! if you havent seen it it is awesome! we have a couple of baptisms hopefully coming up! We have jada in august and also rylee pascual from a part member family! he is doing great! hopefully we can help a couple of our other investigators progress towards baptism too! this week we went over to fletchers house with brother banner. and fletcher just cried the whole time and said how grateful he was for me and elder Mafileo and helping him out it was a really neat experience. sometimes we just dont understand how much we bless peoples lifes!.we also caught a turtle this week so that was pretty awesome! i know that i am here for a reason in south haven im not sure why yet but I know God has a plan for all of us whether it is but great things or by small and simple( 1 nephi 16:29) i know that as we all try to do something good for someone at least once a day and put others first this world will become a better place because it is by those simple things that God brings about great things! i love you all and i hope you have a great week!

For the most part of this week i was in lansing picking up my boy! (new missionary) His name is elder Mills he is from bountiful utah. he was born in Cedar and has family in cedar. his grand parents Gary and Marie Hayes in Enoch. He likes to hunt, likes country and has a girlfriend so we get along pretty good. Before i picked him up me and elder Houser who is another trainor worked on Michigan State Campus and had some awesome miricales! the night before we were to work there our old assistant to the president told us that we would be teaching a roosevelt. so we got his number and called him. as i put the number in the phone it turned out to be the same roosevelt that i had been teaching in south haven! we set up a time to meet with him then met with him the next day. he had gone to the dominican rebublic for a while and had meet the missionaries there then came back to michigan state to go to school and make money so his family can come over and he started meeting with the missionaries there! it was awesome to teach him again he is doing really good. the next day we were just walked around on campus talking to people we were able to talk and sit down with one student and have a lesson right there but after the lesson he wasnt really interested anymore. then we found marylin. she said we could meet with her in about 3 hours so we set up the appointment and told her to meet us at the institute building. we met her there at five and taught he the restoration it was awesome! the spirit was really strong and we invited her to ber baptized on Aug 29 and she accepted that date! it was crazy to be able to find her, teach her, and to set a date with her all with in about 4 hours!!! it was a miricale! i got to hang out with elder bloskas while i was in lansing it was pretty awesome i sure do miss my bro. well things in south haven are going steady we are really working hard with the branch to strengthen it and to work with the less actives. jada is doing great she was able to read 6 chapters of the Book of Mormon over this past week! she is on fire! i hope you all have a great week i love you all and i will send pictures next week cause i forgot my camera.
Love Elder Dunn
