Work moves on.

This week was good. We were able to find a new guy to teach. He is 16 and goes to one of the local high school's here (there are 3 in our area). We found him while trying to get a hold of his brother, who is an investigator. We also continue to teach some great families, our boxer friend, and a few part-member families. All of the converts are doing well. Gina is having trouble with her kids at church. She is a single parent, still very new in the church, and has 3 high energy kids under the age of 6. The 5 year old and the 4 year old do not want to go to primary and she is starting to get a little frustrated. The primary presidency is going to visit her this week. Hopefully they will have some ideas.

We've started doing some new lessons for active members that involve teaching them how they can do missionary work. The first one talks about using church websites for missionary work. We show them how to use, make a profile, and then invite them to share it with 3 friends. It has been great to use that in addition to and Many people don't think of these different ways to share the gospel.

The area is coming along well. One thing that is really exciting is that we have reactivated 4 people since I've been here, in addition to the 4 baptisms. The ward is very strong and supportive. It is a great ward for missionary work.

Love you all, and appreciate all the mail.
