January 12

This week was a really good week. We were able to teach a lot of people and had a good experience at ZTM this week. I am motivated and ready to give all the time that I have left to help the mission achieve this goal. 

This last week we were able to set 5 baptismal dates. There are 2 baptisms set for Jan.17, 1 baptism set for Jan.24, and 2 baptisms set for Jan. 31. The interviews for the 2 baptisms coming up this week have already taken place and both the baptismal candidates passed. If all goes well this transfer is going to end off really well with 5 baptisms! Our main focus lately has been on making sure that we are doing all that we can to help these baptisms go through! 

Elder Kenney and I have been working really well together and have been able to teach quite a bit, along with staying busy in the community, building relationships, helping out at the school, strengthening LA and non-members and of course, having fun! We were able to find another family this week (a family of 7 kids!) and we were able to teach 4 of them and make them new investigators. We have had some pretty good success in finding families and individuals and have a lot of people who are very eligible at this time to be future baptismal dates!

This Sunday we had 20 people at sacrament meeting, 4 of them being investigators with baptismal dates. There was a good talk by President Cruikshank of the Stake Presidency from Regina followed by Relief Society, Priesthood, and Primary Classes! All in all it was a very big improvement from last week and I firmly believe that things will only continue to improve as the holidays are over and everyone seems to be getting back into their usual routine's. 

It has been pretty cold here too, but nothing too unbearable we still make it out everyday.
