It was a good week, and is the beginning of week 6. Transfer calls will be on Saturday and it will be fun to be on the phone as a District Leader and to know everyone's news and get to tell them. As you know we are now on the hunt for more investigators, and we have quite a few promising people who we are hopefully going to start to teach this week. I went on exchanges in Echo Cliffs this week with Elder Bowie. They will be having a baptism this week and that is very good, the branch needs it it will be the first one in 2 years or so. Lita is her name, the interview with her went very well, she has gone through quite a few sets of missionaries and now she is ready to add her name to the records of the Church of Jesus Christ. On Saturday we did a lot of service. We went out quite a ways and helped a family that I really love build a horse corral. It is made of railroad ties standing vertically and utility poles horizontally. Nearly indestructible. Very heavy. We also got tons of sun while we were out there, unlike me, Elder Emery does not tan. Poor guy. We had a great discussion with the family afterwards and then went to a birthday party. The family whose house we went to the party at has fed us 3 times this week, as well as 3 more members feeding us too. I am very grateful for the opportunity to pay fast offerings.Well not much more for this week. Thanks yall.
