Hello all!

Elder Conlin and I had a busy week. We taught many lessons and we even had 4 investigators on baptismal date. We had MLC on Friday and that was great. Got to counsel with many close missionaries. We did a lot of service as well. We go to a place called Habitat for Humanity. It is pretty much a thrift store and we help move in donations and move things around. We also helped an older man in the ward move some filing cabinets and other furniture from his former office. 

We tried really hard to get our investigators to church but none of them came. So now we have to push back their baptisms except one. Her name is Stella. She was a referral given to us awhile back and we gave her to the Spanish sisters. Stella now requested to be in an English ward because its closer and the time we meet makes everything easier on her and her kids. She has been taught by missionaries since 2002 and has seen tons of missionaries. But it seems like every time she tries to get baptized she backs out. For instance one time she thought the water was too cold and another time the elder that she asked to baptize her backed out right before her baptism. But she really wants to be baptized on March 26th because that is her grandmothers birthday. Hopefully it happens. I really think the adversary played a part in our investigators. Ricky's mom got in a car accident this week and she had to go to the hospital. Stella said herself that she had a skirt picked out for Sunday but her daughter got an ear infection and she had to take her to the hospital and didn't get back til 4am. Elder Conlin and I are going to fast this week to help them progress.

Elder Conlin and I and the sister training leaders met with the stake president yesterday to give him a report of the zone. We have zone conference this week on Wednesday and Thursday. Elder Conlin and I are doing car inspections with the rest of the zone leaders. We don't have too many appointments this week unfortunately but we are going to be making a ton of calls in the next couple of days. I hope all is well, I miss you all!
