Well another week has come and gone and here we are again. So like you know I don’t really send group emails but this week is a little extra important so here we go. The week started out like most do, with going out and seeing the investigators that we have. I think we taught some pretty good lessons. Alex is doing really well, we teach him 3 times a week. He understands everything we teach and it feels like it’s perfect for him but he still hasn't come to church. Alexice is still doing well; he came to church yesterday and is talking more than ever about his baptism. I think he is ready. We will be baptizing him within the next couple weeks.
Other than that there is nothing really new, except for one small thing. So the reason I put the title as the Big 12 is because I have 12 weeks left on my mission, but I also will be receiving a new companion.....a brand new missionary. I received the call on Wednesday that I’ll be training a new missionary named Elder Tano from the Ivory Coast. So now is the time I really need to work the hardest and show this new missionary what it’s like. I know the importance my example will have on him. Now is the time for me to be my best!
Pray for me, it’s going to be tough but I also know it will be worth it. I love you and miss you all!
