Hey everyone

Well this week we had a decent week. It was kinda difficult just cause there was a lot going on. We weren't able to teach as much as we wanted but we found some great new investigators last week. One of our new investigators is a man named Rodrick. He is probably about 38 years old. We have only taught him once so far but we have a return appointment with him tomorrow. We seems really interested. He listens super well and he really likes us and wants to listen to our message. He said he will go to church next week so Im really hoping we will see him there. We met him last Thursday when we OYMed him. He then set a return appointment with us for last Saturday. We went and visited him last Saturday and the lesson went really well. Right after we taught him he said he also has a friend who he wants us to meet, so he took us over to meet his friend but unfortunately he wasn't there so we will hopefully meet him tomorrow. This week we also taught Abygail a lot and invited her to be baptized. I dont know if I have mentioned Abygail but she is related to the Decena family who are all strong faithful members here. Abygail's friend and fellow shipper is also Jancel. Yesterday her and Jancel came to church together which was great. Abygail has a baptismal date for this upcoming June 9 and I think she will be ready by that day. 

Last Saturday I also Interviewed several people for baptism. The other Elders in our district have an upcoming baptism this Saturday so I interviewed their investigator Iszchie. Her named is pronounced heshe. Her dad was a less active member who has just recently returned to activity and his daughter will now be baptized this June 18. Its great to see brother Nathan, her dad, return to church and at the same time his daughter, Iszchie, get baptized. I also got a call from our Assistants and they asked me if I would interview one of their investigators. The Elder that was suppose to interview their investigator couldn't so they asked me to do it. After interviewing Iszchie we traveled over to the Russell church building which isn't to far from our area. Over there I interviewed their investigator. He is a really cool guy and it was great to see how much the gospel has helped him change and how he is a completely different person that he was before. He has went through many hard things and has come from a very dark past but he has changed so much and it was great to be able to interview him. Its really cool being a district leader and being able to interview investigators for baptism. 

Well g\have a great week everyone! I love and Miss you all!!
