August 4th letter

Ok so the week was great! The whole week we were working a lot with references from members trying to increase the rather small teaching pool we started with this week. And...... wow. Imagine some very incredible members of the church who havent been baptised yet.
The best way to describe my week is in the stories. Monday I got here and at about 7:00 we had a meeting with the ward mission leader. He is an excemplary member of the church who has a passion for the gospel. His family warmly greated me and we all immediately became good friends. After we went to the bishops house, and he too was happy to have me here, commented on how he liked my enthusiasum and seems like he will be great to work with.

Tuesday we met with some of the investigators the past missionaries had been working with. 
I forget the order, forget the when, Ill just get to the stories. 
During one day this week I was a little anxious about our group of investigators, and prayed that we would be able to do what is right and find those who were ready to hear the gospel. The next day we found a woman named E who told us that after almost passing away from cancer a year ago  wants to know why she is here, where she came from, and where she is going! 
Pray for her.

That same day we found a young man named B that believes the Book Of Mormon is true but has yet to be baptised because he never believed it was very fair that Jesus would visit the people who lived her in the Americas. He is hidding the book of Mormon from his parents and reading it because they do not accept the church. 
I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to be short.
