Easter Sunday. I am so tempted to just stop writing right now. Easter is the best, and every good thought you have about it is just multiplied when you get to wear His name next to your heart the whole day. Yesterday during personal study Elder Moss looked up and asked "So people (do what they do on 4/20) even on Easter Sunday?" We really do live in perilous times. On Sunday every Christian had a choice even more so than on any other day. A lot of people chose to follow Satan: that master of all lies. This world is a rough one, but think of the wonderful Sabbath on the other side of the veil! I know without a doubt that "numberless concourses of angels" sang "He Is Risen" yesterday. This week was very interesting. One of our investigators, A, is living in very difficult circumstances. She lives with her very abusive and constantly drunk father, so she tries to have us come when he is gone. Well the other day we came by while he was there. I was able to witness some of the promises made to the Lord's servants: we were able to speak truths and this man literally had nothing left to say to us. It is difficult seeing people in such darkness that even the smallest glimmer of light blinds them. I would be lying if I tried to say it wasn't. But that is not what our days are filled with. We get to see people come unto Christ each and every day. 

We are really struggling to find. It is hard in a YSA just because they are so [flaky] by nature. I love them! But much more importantly, the Lord loves them! If you could include Dillon in your prayers I would really appreciate it. He is supposed to be baptized this week, and Satan always works the hardest right before we make covenants with our Father in Heaven. In our mission we do something called BDAW: before, during, after, warning. It is such a powerful tool! We recognize the feeling in the room when it changes. When we can literally feel a member of the Godhead with us. The Holy Ghost is real. He ALWAYS does his part. Our privilege as missionaries is to invite him into every home we enter. I love you. Thank you for your prayers. It is a different feeling being a missionary and knowing that literally millions of people are praying for you and for your purpose. The church is true!

Love, Elder King
