Hello everyone! Today is Wednesday, and I'm emailing because our P-Day switches to Wednesday for transfer weeks. I found out that both my companion and I are staying here in the Weston 1st Ward! Very good news. Things are going very well here, we are teaching a bunch of people, and should have a baptism within the next couple of weeks.
I love all of you. I have been very blessed to grow up with awesome people all around me. That helps me when the difficult times come. Not much else to write, just excited to find out who the new missionary to our apartment will be. The other companionship we lived with got switched up, so we'll have a new roommate. I'll write again next Monday.

Hello everybody! I'm loving my time here in the Weston 1st Ward. We have found a bunch of people to teach, and our investigators are coming to church as well as reading/praying about the Book of Mormon. It's very satisfying to see people find the same truths and happiness that you have found in your own life. It's a good reminder to me that I need to keep doing the basic things, such as reading from the Book of Mormon and praying every day.
Not much to report, everything is going great. My companion and I are getting along great and teaching well together. Almost every lesson, he will say something that I myself would have said if I was the one talking at that point in the lesson- it's awesome to feel that both of us are being directed by the same Spirit when we each feel prompted to say the same things. Transfers are in a week and a half (this transfer has flown by!), so I will let you know what's going on next Wednesday, which will be our next emailing opportunity.
Love you all!
