Dear Family,

So we've had some cool miracles this week I'll just start off by jumping right into it. We've been working with this part-member family named the Scheigh's and we've had a hard time meeting with them hardly at all because they've been insanely busy but they still come to church every week. They have a daughter who was baptized about 6ish months ago and we're working with Jeff(the father) and Colton there 11 year old son. Well they had us overSaturday night for dinner and we had a super good lesson with Jeff and Colton. Really just kind down to earth people. Colton has been heavily involved in church for the past several months and was even part of the primary program. Well Colton asked if he could take the discussions again while we were over there and Jeff was all for it. Anyways long story short we will be meeting with them Wednesday at the church and than playing basketball with the Elder's quorum  with them  which will be awesome to help fellowship Jeff in. Colton has expressed interest in being baptized so we're excited that the family is being softened as a whole and letting us work with him.

Every 2 to 3 months we have what we call a zone blitz. So basically everyone in your zone goes into one area and does work for the entire day and helps you find, contact less actives, and so forth. Well I've never had a blitz done in my own area before until Saturday. Me and my companion thoroughly planned it out and gave everyone different assignments and different people to go see. We basically went through all our records in our ward and crossed out everyone who had moved and was not interested and that left us with about 120 or so less actives that we knew nothing about. Well every single one of those people got contacted that day. They might not have all been home but they at least all got contacted. Plus we now have a ton a potentials investigators and further people to work with that they were able to find. So overall it was a really good experience and we had a lot of success!

This Sunday we will receive our transfer calls. Its amazing how fast transfers come but I'm pretty sure I'll be staying in my area since I've only been here for 3 months. Chances are that my companion will get transferred, since he's been here for 6 months. I guess we'll see what happens the Lord knows best!

Love you guys thanks for you're continual support and love!
