How is it going everyone!!! Sorry about that short email last week... I will type more in this email. Sometimes it just gets tiring to type so much on the computer. I don't have the strongest fingers so they tire out quickly.;) BUT yeah. This was a good week my friends.
SO like I kindly stated in my email from last week, the mission president came down and interviewed us. So that was good. It was quick, but good.
|Elder Jenkins and I|
Also, Elder Jenkins (One of the assistants) has been doing splits with us this whole week. Which was really great. He has helped out a ton. We have found many new great investigators and have had a great time. We also figured out that he knows Miles Anderson. Pretty cool. I guess they went to school together.
SO yeah this week we did a tonnnnnn of walking and finding and teaching and it was soooo great. The mission is so great when you work your butt off! I absolutely love it! It had been a little tougher to work hard with my comp because he is finishing off the mission. BUT things are improving!

|What weights look like for poor people...like us!|
We have found a lot of cool people. AND it looks like in the month of September we will have quite a few baptisms. We have quite a few baptismal dates. The firmest baptism that we got so far is a girl named Emilly. So she was excommunicated 3 years ago, but on splits my companion ate lunch at her moms house. The Elder that he was on splits with shared a message and his testimony touched Emilly and gave her the desire to finally be re-baptized! So we have been working with her to get her all the way ready. Now the bishop needs to approve it and clear the date we have set. So we are just waiting on him. But within 2 or 3 weeks she will be baptized. That will be exciting. She has completely changed her lifestyle.
After that we just taught a lot of new people! So we found one guy named Venicius that is really really interested but also kinda nervous about everything. He is really smart and has toonnnns of doctrinal Bible questions for us. haha. We are meeting with himat 6 so hopefully that goes great. But in the closing prayer of the lesson, he prayed to be baptized and for the church to grow!!! Super cool.
Anyways this week was great. Elder Jenkins and I got a little sick though. He got really sickactually. He threw up 5 times in the night... Pretty rough. But we are getting better. Luckily I haven't ever thrown up on the mission...
Anyways that has been the week so far!! I have been studying about the sons of Alma the younger. I love all of these stories. BUT I love the counsel that he gives to them. I really loved the counsel given to Shiblon. He didn't tell him much but in the verses he tells him some powerful stuff!! So give that a readin! Love you all!!
