Everything is Progressing....

Hello Family!!!

Things are going good here and we had a pretty good week here!!!!  First off I had fun because I had the opportunity to go on an exchange with a Zone leader and be in an air conditioned truck so it was pretty awesome!!!  I enjoyed it more than the sun making me drip sweat and things from all over!!!  The shirt stays cleaner too!!!  I also this week was able to go play some basketball on Saturday with some people that we had met during the week!!!  It turns out that they are on the school sports team and enjoy having me come play with them!!!  It was fun because one of the games that we were playing I scored 5 threes in a row and it was pretty awesome!!!!  Also there are many awesome investigators and things that we have been seeing and things so it was pretty nice to be able to see some of them start to accept the Gospel in their lives!!!!  The companion is doing well and is enjoying the missionary work and he really loves the camera, you never see him not playing with it and things like that!!!

I do not have any pics this week, haven’t taken any but hopefully I will be getting pics this next week when we go and do all the fun things we planned for!!!  The District is doing well and things are going well with them!!!  We had a problem this past week with one of them because he didn’t agree with what was going on so we had to take care of that but it is all good now and things are just fine!!!!  I am hoping that we will be able to get this family that we are working on to baptism they are an awesome family and they understand and know that the message is true!!!  The father is a pastor in his church not the main one but one of them and the wife doesn’t work!!!  When we were nearing the end of the first lesson with them the wife turned and asked her husband “when can we have them come back again"  It was pretty awesome to hear that because of the spirit!!!!  

The recent converts that we have baptized are really awesome and they are doing well they want to serve a mission and are making preparations!!!  I am hoping within the next couple of weeks we can get them a priesthood ordination which will help them continue to progress!!!  The branch is continuing to grow and get bigger and the meeting house seems like it is getting smaller and smaller!!!  I am hoping that we will be able to get a bigger meeting arrangement here soon that will be really nice!!!  There are transfers that will be coming up here in the next couple of weeks and we will see what happens with everything it will be interesting!!!!  Anyway it sounds like there is a lot going on there in the land of the US and that is exciting, good luck with all of those things that will be happening this week!!!!  Have a good week to all and I love you all!!!!
