10 year old Jenner

Hi everyone!

This week has been pretty good! This email will be pretty short, but I would just like to tell you about a miracle or two.
We´re teaching a little boy named Jenner! He is the sweetest little boy ever, and he´s super smart. He loves to read the Book of Mormon, and he loves church. He is in one of the saddest situations I´ve seen however. His parents are separated, and he lives with his mom and with his little sister who has some kind of mental defect. His mom isn´t home much, and she often arrives to the house drunk. He makes her dinner and does plenty of the chores in the house, although he´s only ten years old. We´re hoping to get the members pretty involved with him so they can support him in his situation, since he´s so smart and kind! He will be baptized on July 29th, which we´re very excited for as well.
Another miracle! One day my companion and I were a little unsure of what we should do one day since we didn´t have a whole ton of plans. All of a sudden a member from another ward pulled up on his motorcycle and told us he had a reference for us! He showed us where she lives, and we dropped by later to meet her. Her name is Gloria, and she´s SUPER awesome. She used to attend another church, but she is currently looking for another one to attend. We taught her The Restoration, which she understood super well, and she even agreed to be baptized if she obtains a testimony of The Restoration. MIRACLES!
I love you all! Have a great week!
