Week of June 20, 2016

​​​​​​Hey everyone! Sorry I didn't send an email last week we were out playing baseball and stuff!  The last couple of weeks have been so amazing! last week we spent lots of time teaching Jared and Dwayne getting them ready for the baptisms. We also have still been doing quite a bit of service, we have been teaching lots more than when we first got to Winner though so its been great!

On Saturday we were able to have the baptisms of Dwayne and Jared it went so amazing! We had a great turn out and were able to have all of there families there. Everyone was so happy and excited for them! The spirit was there so strong at the baptism it was so awesome! After the baptism we gave the parents of the two boys to give a little talk they were both pretty nervous but they both did such a did job! It has been so good working with these 2 families and helping them come back to church. Gerard who is Dwaynes dad was mad the young men's president this last week. There is no better feeling in the world than bringing people unto Christ and helping them to increase there faith.

This week we were also able to go to one of Molly's kids baseball games they were able to win the championship game it was a really good time! We also went on exchanges this week I was able to go up to Pierre I was able to learn so much. Going on exchange's is always awesome because it seems like crazy things always happen and we are able to learn so much from the other missionaries.

I hope that everyone is doing great! I hope that you all have a great week!!

Love Elder Brinkerhoff

Week of June 6, 2016

Hey everyone I hope that yall are doing great! Things out here in Winner are going awesome. It was super hot this week! I think everyday it has been over 100 degress this week so it has been super hot this week! We did a whole bunch of service this week. We went out to the Bartlets and helped them out on there ranch we had a huge fire and burned a bunch of stuff we also found some wild Marijuana so that was kinda funny, apparently there's a lot of it that grows out here in all the fields and stuff. This week I also umped a baseball game for one of our investigators it was awesome!

So we have been working really hard the last few months and haven't really been seeing any success. But this week we saw so many blessings it was amazing. We were able to put 3 people on date for baptism this week. 2 Kids named Jared and Dwayne and the third one is Kristina. We are super excited! All of our had work has finally paid off. We are really hoping and praying that everything will go as planned. Its super awesome to help people to increase there faith and it is really cool to see them change as they start to become converted to the gospel. I love being a missionary and to help people to come unto Christ. There is no better feeling in the world than brining people into the gospel.

I hope that everyone has a great week! Love you all!
