This week has been great. We were able to help Tara get baptized on Saturday. Her boyfriend of 3 years, who is a RM [returned missionary], was able to come down and baptize her. Even in a singles’ ward we help families become eternal, which I had never really thought of before. It is a sweet thing.

This week we have been doing a lot of tracting (knocking on doors). On Friday we knocked on a door and there was this girl in her 20's, Julie, who has been dating a member and she told us that one day she was going to be baptized because she wanted to be married to James in the temple. She came to church this Sunday. She is so ready, but the sad part (for us) is she is going to be moving up to Portland for an internship this summer. We only have 2 weeks before she goes up and we are also going to try to get her involved in a YSA [young single adult] ward up there. I am so glad we tracted into her so that we can help the missionaries up there find her and teach her. It is also good that we could help her have a "home ward" here as well. She is a great miracle for us as well as for the missionaries up in Portland.... They don't even know how lucky they are yet.
On Saturday when we were tracting, we knocked on this guy’s door. He served over in Iraq and he gave us 2 mugs that he made. I wish I had taken a picture. They were half blue and half purple and had faces on them -- one smiley one a little sad (but even the sad one was cute). So we got "mugged."
I love you all so much! Thank you for the nice letters and prayers and thoughts. I am so blessed to have such a great family, how did I luck out? I love you! Love, Sister Cluff.
