Soo, don't have a lot of time this week.
won't be able to write much next week cause we're going to the zoo on p-day. The week after that we'll have the ipads so finding a computer wont be a problem like it was today :(
Ipads are so confusing. the Zone Leaders have them now and showed them to us. I got a headache in three seconds. cool note, if someone puts the password wrong a certain number of times, all the memory on the ipad is wiped.

Well, E is progressing towards his baptism! I'm so grateful that I have the privilege of working with him. He has really good questions and really felt the spirit when Elder Neilson spoke at the Regional Stake Conference this past Sunday. His bike was stolen this past week and he's been walking everywhere trying to find a job. Luckily, he doesn't live too far away from the Church, but I feel for him.

There's a girl we've been teaching named A who is preparing to be baptized next Sunday, February 2nd!! Neither of her parents are members, but her grandmother is and she's been taking her and her younger sisters to Church. We've taught A almost all the lessons and we just have a few of the commandments to go. But she's been taught by her grandmother basically everything. It's interesting teaching someone who has a testimony of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon in the first lesson. The most I think we've had to do is explain definitions of words she's not too familiar with like"Resurrection" and The reason she hasn't had a baptismal date til the week before her baptism is because she wants her mom to be there, and she lives in Atlanta. We're excited for Angel, she's certainly an example for her parents!
