Hello the family!

This week has been going well, we are still working hard on finding but now as we are finding more and more people to work with we are able to spend a little more time teaching and that's always good =)  We have a couple of really cool people that I am excited to be working with and we are just doing our best to keep everyone that we are meeting with progressing.

This week I think one of the coolest things that happened was that about 2 weeks ago we got a referral from a member, they said that there was a family in the ward who had a little girl that had just turned 9 and had not been baptized yet, and once someone turns 9 it becomes the missionaries responsibility to teach them the lessons as get them baptized.  This week we were able to meet with them and she is just a super cute little girl just having fun.  She had pretty much grown up in the church so she knows pretty much everything that she needs to, we just have to review them to make sure that she is ready.  But it was cool to see that even at 9 years old, people are still able to understand the whole doctrine of Christ and to be able to make educated and informed answers about all of the points of the gospel.  But she should be able to be baptized in about 2 weeks.

Other than that though theirs not too much new stuff to report, we have been eating with quite a few interesting things.  If you look at the pictures, one of the members in the ward made us an interesting lunch.  He used to own a breakfast shop and so he knows quite a lot about cooking things, so he made us all some hamburgers as well as a cool toast dessert things.  It was quite delicious and we had a great chat with him afterwards about his conversion story and to see just how he met the missionaries.

Well Things are going pretty well here and all in all I can say that I am pleased with the progress that we have made in the area.  The mission is having a big push right now to make sure that every companionship in the mission is able to find 3 new investigators this week and wants it to the point that is a companionship has not hit the goal by around Thursday he wants nearby companionships to come to their area and help them find some people.  It will sure be an interesting week, but all to be able to accomplish our missionary purpose.

Thats pretty much my week, hope that you all have a great one!
Love you all!
