Hey family!

How is everyone? Sounds like Brooke had quite the fall. That picture looks pretty nasty. But I guess that means she was having fun, and sounds like everyone else is really busy. I like the Movember idea, sounds pretty cool, dad you will have to send a picture with your beard! 

Well this week was pretty good. We worked really, really hard. We had a ton of lessons; we put a couple of baptismal dates and had 10 new investigators. We are trying to work better with the ward, we got the bishop to visit a family with us, and the stake president is going to visit with us tonight. It’s kind of cool that the stake president is in our ward, and willing to help us.

Manuel is going to get baptized this week so that is exciting. He is super ready. He says he wants to go on a mission in a year and he was participating in all the classes and stuff on Sunday. He is definitely one of the most prepared investigators that I have had my whole mission.

The only disappointment is that we committed 15 people to go to church this Sunday and only 4 went... I was super bummed. We had 3 families that said for sure they we going but none of them went. The good thing is that we have a lot of work and we are definitely going to see lots of progress in this area.

I don’t really know what else to tell you guys. I have been thinking about the story of Enos in the last few days. About when was the last time our souls hungered? And about sincere prayer. Many times we fall in the habit of prayer, that it’s just something we do in the morning and night. But when we can really have a sincere prayer, with real intent, and "cry" unto the Lord like Enos instead of praying or talking to him, that’s when we will see real changes in our lives. 

I love you all, have a great week
