Nov. 25 to Dec. 2

So I don't have a lot of time this week since I wanted to respond to everyone emails personally, and I need to write president too. 

Monday- Knocked on a lot of doors of less actives. Talked to one, and we are visiting them this week

Tuesday- We finally had correlation! A new assistant ward mission leader got called and he is AWESOME. I love him. And the ward mission leader will be in town for 2 months, which is nuts. And so the next 12 weeks here will be magical! woot.

Wednesday- Taught Virgil, he still isn't getting it and wants to meet less frequently :(
We finally taught Robert too, but his interest has waned since its taken so long to have an actual lesson

Thursday- Thanksgiving morning. Had a fun day. Started with softball with the ward, and then we had district meeting. Which is the last we'll have with our district leaders, since they're getting trainees tomorrow. Which is weird. We had dinner with the flores family, and they're awesome. Love the Flores family. 

Friday- Weekly planning, took forever. Stopped by a bunch of people who weren't interested. Except for one guy, who we taught on Sunday is super interested! 

Saturday- We helped the Bates with some service, and taught them the Restoration. he is really interested, and so is the wife. However, rose has a slightly different viewpoint on it, and it might be a hard thing to overcome. But I'm confident her husband will actually be a big help in that. They're a really awesome family

Sunday- No one showed up to church, but right after church we picked up a new investigator, and he is really excited to keep learning. On thursday we are giving him a tour. 

So things here are really hopping! Of course, this is the last week of the transfer. We'll see what happens come Saturday. Love you all!
