Branch party BBQ thingy!
So, this was a good week (: we've taught Chad everything now and had some fun playing marble with him and his friends. Now it's up to him to really work towards baptism. We'll be helping as much as we can of course, but Chad's got to step his game up a bit if he's going to be ready for baptism next month. In other news! Zach finally committed to a baptismal date! That was awesome! He says he finally feels ready and he really wants me to be there, so he made me feel special. April 15th is his date, and I just got my transfer call that I'll be staying in Black Rock with Elder Neves. All around good week! Had a lot of fun too. We cooked burritos for Zach because he's never had them (no Mexican food here) and did some service for this prison rehab place, painting and fixing up.
Also fun (:

Yeah, Bathsheba was pretty sweet (: Oh, it was raining so I made a shirt and a hat out of some grocery bags to keep me dry, aha, it kind of worked. No, I'm just a district leader now. Being an old missionary is pretty coolio. I make fun of my trainee all the time because he still has 23 months to go. Chad's doing great. we taught the Word of Wisdom. He had some changes to make... but he had no problems making the changes. (: He really is a great kid. His date was moved to April 8th though, but it's all good. Zach is doing great too. We played football with him and his crew this week. I love football now. It's so much fun. Aha, he also said he's feeling more ready for baptism so we're going to see what he thinks about April 8th with his buddy Chad (: That would be sweet!

Thanks for all the updates!

Chad is doing great. He came to church again and has been reading and praying and we see him almost everyday, aha, he's a great guy. The law of chastity lesson went well actually. He just told us what he was doing wrong and that now he understands why it is wrong and is going to fix it. (: So, he's living it and still looking good to be baptized on the 25th of March! Which is like 3 days after transfers, so if I get moved I'm going to be pretty bummed. :/ I'm going to ask President to stay one more transfer but we shall see (: Kim's basically dropped. Not like forever, but she's just too busy right now, so it might not be her time. The other investigators are doing alright. Nothing crazy to report on, but Zach is feeling more prepared for baptism now he says. Still no date set but definitely progress! My new companion is great (: He's still learning and stuff, so it's fun. It's weird to think I'm an "old" missionary now. Aha, Elder Neves, he's tall, from Arizona, played volleyball, funny, like girls aha, and just over all just a pretty cool guy. (: But don't tell him I said any of that cause ya know, bros can't just compliment each other like that ;P oh yeah! We went to a place called Bathsheba! I didn't take a lot of pictures because it was raining, but you should google image it! I'll send some pics, too.

I love you all!
