June 27th

Hey how are things going for you all?! hope things are going well this week things went pretty good I was able to go on two trade offs and one of them was a new missionary from cedar! his name is wes baker! i didnt know him but we know a lot of the same people! we had a great trade off had some fun times! we pretty much just talked about cedar the whole time! We had some great lessons this week! we have one investigator whose name is Allison and she is the bomb! She rode her bike for 1 hour to get to FHE and then on sunday she rode 1 1/2 hours to get to church! talk about commitment! She is on date for the 30th of July so we will she how things go! We also taught a guy named Ahmad and his girlfriend Daynita. He is muslim but we had a great lesson with him we talked a lot about praying! At the end of the lesson the today us that they had just got evicted and have no where to live. they are both trying to find jobs but are searching for them. We asked if we could so the pray and pray for them. so we did! The spirit was very very strong and you could deffinantly feel the faith that they had! about 2 hours later we saw them! he came running up to us and told us that one of their prayers has been answered! and that he felt something! we know that what he felt was the Holy Ghost! It was a great experience! 

I have been thinkin a lot this week about the law of consecration and sacrifice There are a lot of people who give up a lot of things just do to what i do and to have what i have everyday. And a lot of the times i just think that the things that i have everyone has. As i have gone through this week i have realized that that is not true one bit! I know that everything i have been given is from the Lord i deffinantly dont deserve it but for some reason he gives it to me! I know that as i give all i have to the lord he will bless me in countless ways! Like in the parable of the talents the Lord says " Because you have taken care of a few things, that i will make you a ruler over many!" As we live our lives in a way that what we do, who we are, and what we say all points to our Lord and Heavenly Father we will be able to find the most joy and peace and happiness that we could never find anywhere else! I sure have a long way to go but i know that as we help one another that this is possible i love you all and i can promise these things in the name of Jesus Christ! Amen
Hope you have a great week!
Love Elder Dunn

Happy Father's Day!

So until my mission it never dawned on me how much our Earthly Fathers reflect our Heavenly Father. They Provide for us, they watch out for us, they warn us, and the teach us skills that no one else can teach us! I very very grateful for my dad and the things that he has taught me i deffinantly would not be where i am at if it wasnt for him! I hope that we can all remember the importance of our fathers and our families! One of my favorite scriptures is 
47 And again, the Lord has said that: Ye shall defend your families even unto bloodshed. Therefore for this cause were the Nephites contending with the Lamanites, to defend themselves, and their families, and their lands, their country, and their rights, and their religion. 
Which teaches us the importance of familes and what they can do for us! with out families earthly and eternally none of this would be possible i hope as we all go thought out this week and our lifes we can always put our family first in all that we do! Exspecially of Heavenly Father!

Love you all i hope that you have great week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Racoon

Hey everybody this week has been great! so we had transfer calls but i stayed here in Kalamazoo and Elder Johnson left he went up to lansing! But my new companion is Elder Turley and man it is just like me and palmer or me and bragger being companions! we are just a like and it is a great time! This week we found 4 new investigators. Sarah, miriam, carter, and Emily. They are all pretty solid and truly want to learn! our main focus right now for them is helping them to read and to meet with us again soon! Keana is doing pretty good she is slowly progress but wasnt able to come to church because she was babysitting here nephew. We are working right now with all of our investigators to just understand that as we put God first in all that we do that everything else will fall into place! I was reading in Jacob 2 where jacob is telling the nephites the importance of seeking the kingdom of God first! He then gives a promise that as we do that then we will abtain the riches and what not that we are looking for. I truly know that as we put God first in everything that We will be able to have the stuff that we need in order to live and succeed! Seeing how the gospel can bless us is defiantly something that i cant even put into words! I hope that we can all strive to do better then we did the day before, so that we may have more hope and happiness in the days to come! i love you all and i hope that you have a great week!

We also had a fun time picking up a dead racoon and putting on the sisters porch and playing a little joke on them haha!
