Gone Fishing...for investigators that is!

  Dear family and friends,

 We recently received an e-mail from Mike, and he is doing very well in his new area, Furakawa.  He is living in an apartment with his companion, and two other elders.  They've done alot of finding lately, and have had quite a bit of success  finding a man who was praying to know whether the Catholic Church was true, and they showed up on his doorstep!  The Lord works in mysterious ways.  He tells me that another investigator that they found has totally committed to following the gospel, and all of it's principles.  Both gentlemen are now preparing for baptism sometime in July, we hope.
  Right now, Michael is seeing the miraclous work the Lord can perform if missionaries are willing to be deligent, and work hard.  He is, however, having a rather difficult time finding a location he can e-mail from, so it should be interesting if they can find any other location to use in the coming weeks.

Michael speaking about one of his investigators says:

 "He`s like `I`m going to do everything you tell me to say because I know that its what God wants'. I couldn`t believe it. I should be getting two baptisms by the end of this month I think. (we hope)  I`m waaaay happy, God has blessed us with these people! I cant believe it... the mission is going soooo good right now... It`s all looking super optimistic. I`m loving the mission, every day is just more fun than the previous one."
Keep up the prayers, they seem to be working!
Love, Dad
