I have always said that the days go by slowing but the weeks seem to fly by. I think that Elder Hayden is feeling that as well. And he is right, you will never hear me say that it is going fast. I will say, though, seeing the smiling children and the decision to be baptized feels my heart with joy and I know that there is a reason for everything and that Elder May is doing what he is supposed to be doing. We love him and miss him so much but we are oh, so proud of him! Enjoy!!
**ps- If anyone is interested in sending him anything, he did say he would love any gift cards. Some of the local restaurants that we both share is Chili’s, Outback, Olive Garden, Chic-Fil-A and Taco Bell.**

Hey Everyone! We had an awesome week down here in Port Charlotte!
This whole transfer has been flying by. (My family will probably not agree) It has just seemed like it has flown by. Did you know I got to Port Charlotte 5 weeks ago? It's ridiculous. But it has been an awesome week even if it was quick.
Wednesday was a ton of fun because we got to go out of our area on exchange for like two hours so I could interview a baptismal candidate for the zone leaders while they interviewed our two for this past weekend.
Speaking of baptism:
Meet Penelope and Alan Bildzukewicz, some of the newest members of the Church. Such a cool family!
Third, in ward council, we are having missionary moments shared and Bishop told everyone about how his neighbor was asking about what church to go to and Bishop interrupted him and said "Your search is over, you found the right church and I am the Bishop of it" then set up a dinner for this Friday so we can teach.
Fourth, this past Sunday we had some members missionary miracles. The three talks were given by a youth, the Bishops wife, and Elders Quorum 2nd Counselor so you can already know they were going to be powerful. Each were the same topic, about "How do I know the gospel is true?" The first two talks given were fantastic and the Spirit was already very strong and the Elders Quorum Counselor talked about he learned the gospel is true by doing missionary work. He said "Brothers and Sisters, if you want to strengthen or gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel, Go Share It With Others! That is the best way to learn. Open your mouth, Follow the Spirit, and watch miracles happen through your words!" It was very powerful.
And now it's preparation day already. Crazy stuff. Love you all and hope you're all doing well! Talk to you all later!
Love - Elder May
