Hey Ma and Pa!

On to this week’s events.

We have so many new friends! Some return appointments just need to be coordinated.

We taught one of our investigator's father this week, who originally actually comes from Iceland. His name is Sigurdur (with the Thorn instead of the d) and he's very bible competent. He is willing to hold commitments and takes what we say seriously. Things are looking up for him.

We also were able to meet with ‘E’ and her sister this week. They have just moved into a new apartment, and she had lost her Book of Mormon, but we have a return appointment this week, and she's making progress.

Zone training this week was great. Everyone from my district came up to me after pumped up for the coming month.

This week we also met with a less active family in our area, the ‘T’ family. ‘P’, the mother, asked for a blessing due to some recent family struggles. We talked about the importance of the sacrament and coming to church, and I think she just kind of feels hopeless about it.

The family can get kind of rowdy, and hard to calm down, but I've already started to see a difference just in the few times I've been there, and ‘P’ called us to have us come do a service project for them this week, so I think they are starting to put a bit more trust in the missionaries.

Our good friend ‘M’ finally came to church for the first time in a long time. It was good to see him there with his family after having been away for so long. I think the sting of being offended a while back might be going away. We're still meeting with him, and things are looking up.

Some other awesome news about church: ‘R’ got up to bear her testimony and has decided to serve a mission! She thanked the missionaries and her friends for being a positive influence on her, and said that after some encouragement, she feels like this is what she needs to do. The branch is so supportive of her, and I can tell she's pretty happy with her decision.

We're still teaching ‘R's mom, and we realized this week she has some interesting views about how things work, but from what ‘R’ said, they still talk about the church often, and find time still to read together when time allows. ‘R’ told us she'd like to teach us how to make some good authentic Mexican dishes (a topic we got on before) so we're looking at a delicious return appointment here in the coming week :)

Things are going really well here. They aren't slowing down for anything either. Basically our entire next week is already planned!

I love you both a Whole bunch!  Have a great week!
