June 17th, 2013

Guess who I'm sitting next to.  No, not the prophet, Elder A  His child (a missionary) is finally getting here , and since we're the closest area to the mission offices, they sent him with us for today and tomorrow.    It's been AWESOME!!!  And keep writing him, his family stopped writing again. 

It was a pretty awesome week.  We had the leaders training meeting Tuesday and it was incredible.  President Wagner taught us how to put a baptismal date with anyone in the first lesson and we did a lot of practices that ended up helping me out later that day (keep reading for more info).  Also, I saw Elder B (still in A, but he's zone leader now), Elder D, Elder D, Elder D, and Elder E, so it was way fun.  And basically I learned way too many things to really be able to tell you them all.  But it was great.  I got back just in time for our lesson with G, an investigator that we had found last Sunday, who started off the lesson telling us that she had thought about it and she decided that she didn't want to get baptized.  We'll see about that!  We taught her the restoration and she understood it really well, and when the time came to invite her to be baptized we applied what President Wagner had taught us and she accepted a baptismal date for July 6th.  Sweet!

We're still working a lot with members to get them excited to help us.  I think it's been working, along with President Wagner's talk from stake conference, because we have a ton of lessons already scheduled this with new people the members have been talking to.  Yes!  And L finally came to church!!! She's looking pretty good for her baptism on the 29th.  Also we had an activity this week.  We played Mormon family feud and it was fun.  

I don't have a whole lot of time left, but I also don't have a whole lot more to say.  Thanks for everything and have a great week!  Less than a month and you'll be getting letters like these from Timo too!!!  Who's ready?  Love you!
