We had some great miracles this week! And we are helping one of our new investigators from this week to get ready for baptism on the 30th of this month! Also one of our other investigators told us that she is ready to take the lessons now and wants to be baptized also! The Lord truly works miracles with these people and many are receiving the full blessings of the gospel. This is a great time to be a missionary!
Lots of knocking on doors this week but it went great! The weather is also perfect for being outside, it stays light for longer and we I am getting a new companion, Elder Russell!
This week was good, we got some rain but I am one of the lucky ones that have a car and we managed to stay pretty dry out here.
I had the great opportunity to meet up with my cousin Elder Fonseca who is serving a mission for the Santa Rosa California Mission.
So this week was pretty good even though we didn't have any of the people we are teaching at church. We found a man from Nigeria and he seems interested in learning more about our church.
This was a tougher week but this coming week will be great!
This was a great week! We had a great week and also had a chance to work with our mission president in our area and with the assistants to the president on Saturday. This week we have zone conference so we get to see our mission President again this week! I also received this great big red envelope this week and wanted to thank you all who wrote in it for the wishes! We should be having a baptism on the 22nd for Leah and Heavenly :)

This week was pretty good. We had transfers and I have a new companion from Michigan Elder Compton. He is going home at the end of this transfer so I will be getting a new companion next transfer. I remembered my camera for the pictures!
Baptism of Jeanne and Callie

January 20th- This week was great, we are heading into the last week of the transfers and we will be having two baptisms on Saturday! Next week we will know whether I stay or go! The weather continues in the 70's and no sign of rain anywhere.....
January 14th- This week was good, yesterday we had interviews with our mission president and they were great! Saturday we had a temple tour with our investigators Jeanne and Callie and they loved it. On Wednesday and on Thursday I was actually on Exchanges and I was on bike all day Thursday and half the day on Wednesday. That was fun since I don't get to be on bike very often.
January 6th- All 4 of our main investigators came to church and two are set to be baptized the 25th of this month. And the other 2 can also be baptized that day if they come to church this next two weeks! So we can have 4 baptisms at the end of this month! I was in Spanish for a day and got to see a baptism for the Spanish ward here.
January 1st- There is not a lot new going on this week. Holidays are pretty busy for people and we did not get a chance to talk to a lot of people at their homes but managed to have some great conversations with some people outside. I'm glad Christmas was good and also I hope you had a good new year. We got together as a zone and we played some sports so that was a fun night. Tomorrow we are meeting with our investigators who are going to be baptized on the 25th of this month. I am doing a lot better right now though with being sick, just a little on my throat.

We had a good week. Johnny came to church this week so we are planning on baptizing him this Saturday at 2 pm. he weather has been pretty cold here lately but we are in car and we can wear jackets and have heating in the car :D This week we have Christmas conference with our mission president and that should be awesome, we get to go to the temple with him! We have a lot of awesome investigators and it looks like we could be having a lot of baptisms in January and maybe one more in December or 2! :D

We had Mark's baptism on Saturday and it went well, he is now a member of the church. We are getting a lot of people to teach and it is an awesome time of the year and an awesome area to be in. Also two weeks ago President Lewis came out to work with us for about two hours and it was great, I enjoyed it and he drove us around. Also I got to conduct the zone conference for Elder Baxter of the 70 and it was a pretty cool experience to have.
