It was great to here from you all this week! I had a really good week! We found 4 new investigators this last week! Heck yeah! We have 8 investigators right now and 4 of them are really solid I'm hoping for at least three baptisms this next transfer.
Yeah so I’m staying with Elder B here in
just fine with that this area is pretty awesome and we are really seeing some
good things happen here. One guy who we found this last week while street
contacting is way cool and he came to play basketball this last week and came
to church. He has a ton of potential and I’m sure he will get baptized if he
can just kick his smoking habit. He is 26.
We had stake conference here in
this last week! They had to broadcast it at 3 different building because there are
a lot of people in the stake. I was at the one with all the live speakers in Annapolis Severn so that was cool. President and Sister Richards
came and spoke and gave some good talks on missionary work and all the good
stuff going on in the mission. So it was a good Sunday. We had dinner last
night at the Y’s and there huge forty Niner’s fans so they were talking about
the game and giving me all the updates, so that was cool.
Overall my District did really well this transfer. We had a couple baptisms and have some really solid investigators right now so there are some good things going on. I also went on exchanges with the Zone leaders this week and that was sweet. I went to there area with Elder H and we are good friends so it was cool.
We taught this really cool family and they want to get baptized but cant give up smoking so we taught the word of wisdom and the spirit came in and slapped them all and they committed to stop smoking and they haven’t so far, so that was awesome!
Today for P day we watched a movie called facing the giants that president Richards approved and the whole zone went to the B’s ( a senior couple) super nice club house that has a theater that we watched the movie in and it was pretty fun to watch even though it was pretty cheesy ha-ha.
So I had an awesome week and loved the emails from you guys! I have played against some high school players for fun here and
and give them a good fun for there money ha-ha. Anyways thanks so much for
writing me I love you guys very much.
Anyways I’m glad lynz had a fun party and hope Sarah gets feeling better and has a fun birthday! I love you guys! Have a good week!

Wow thanks so much for all of your long emails you guys sent to me! Seriously that is the best birthday present I could get!
I..went to a place called Gabe's and which is like a really nice upscale thrift store I guess and it’s huge. My sun glasses broke a couple weeks ago and I got two brand new pairs of sun glasses for 2 bucks! The lady at the counter gave me a really good deal for some reason! I also got some new shoes that were only 10 bucks so I’m excited to not have my sock rub against the ground in my proselyting shoes ha-ha. I’m going to take a picture of my shoes and send them to you so you can have a good laugh ha-ha. Do you remember those shoes in that one general conference talk that the stake president bronzed? Well my shoes blow those shoes out of the water with how beat up they are ha-ha.
It sounds like all the birthdays and everything have been really fun and you have enjoyed them so I’m really glad to here that! I hope Sarah has fun at her Dance though!
It sounds like R is ready to go on his mission. He will do well though, the most important thing to have when you leave is just the desire to help others and do your best.
So anyway in a really short explanation of my week, it was one of the best weeks of my entire mission. The
Severn ward is killing it right now and the area is on
fire! We put two people on date to be baptized this last week named R and T who
are both older guys and really cool. T has been taught for a year and a half
and finally he has decided to be baptized on October 11! And R is another older
guy about 65 who has gone through a rough life and wants to be baptized soooo
And we also have two other investigators praying about a baptismal date!!!!! The sister training leaders in my ward and district also have 2 on date so we are killing it right now and everyone is just in awe! The lord has blessed us a lot for our hard work and dedication!
Anyway thanks so much again for the birthday wishes, presents and emails! I love you guys very much. I let you know how everything went next week ok. :) Love you all! :))
