Boynton Beach to Naples

Hey everybody! 
Things have been awesome here, just got transfer calls and I will be moving to the west coast over to Naples! I will be working with the Estero YSA with Sister Tarullo. Lots of changes! But I'm pretty excited. It will be really hard to leave the Gateway YSA. I have loved every minute and the many friendships I have made here. 
We saw SO many miracles this week! This last week we started teaching someone by the name of Lukas. He was found by the Portuguese sisters and they gave us his number to call. We had called him and he had told us that he had done some research on the church (read some anti material) and he decided that is wasn't for him, especially because of his atheist past that he had lived a lot of his life. About a week later, we got a phone call from the sisters again about him. We met with him and he told us how he was feeling so much stress and pressure and he was so lost and the only thing that came to mind for him to do was to pray. In the middle of the prayer, he stood up because he felt prompted to call the sisters. We talked to him and he had a COMPLETE change of heart and he felt the Spirit testify to him that The Book of Mormon was true, that the sisters were sent to him for a reason, and he needed to try this out for himself. He came to church and was glowing the whole time. He felt the spirit so strongly and he told us after that he loved it and wants to be as involved as he can. We are so excited for him and his progression! He was definitely prepared by the Lord to accept the truth in his life and to feel the fruits of the spirit.  I have learned a lot from him about faith and hope. Hope is to believe in a better world, to know that there is always something better through God. His plan is perfect and He is the only one with the perfect eyes to see it. I hope that you all can look at your life through God's eyes, through thick and thin. 
Love you all and hope you have a great week!
