Happy B-Day, Mom

Glad to hear your birthday was great Mom! Sorry I haven't sent anything home for that... in fact I have just been terrible at sending anything the last year or so. I haven't forgot I promise. And I have some stuff to give you when I get home.

This week was pretty slow actually. Transfers happened and we got some great new people in our zone. But it was just a very typical week. We had two lessons with Chris, the guy training to be an Olympic sprinter, and they were both great. He was making awesome progress but he missed church yesterday and we weren't able to get a hold of him. So we're hoping to see him tonight still but we'll see. Had a cool lesson with Steve A. this week too where we listened to a talk. It's Bill Carpenter's conversion story, I think it's really called, "Conversion of a Catholic Priest." It was so powerful though and he really enjoyed it. Diego is moving forward too he told us this last week he wants to be baptized. He just doesn't feel ready yet. he attended the YSA ward this week though which I think was really good for him. Oh man, our lesson with him was SO AWKWARD. We went to his house and had one of the YSA in our ward come meet us named Jenn Mack. She's pretty cool. Anyway, he fed us dinner before the lesson and it was really weird. Elder Zimmerman and I totally felt like we were on a double date. Yeah... it was pretty strange.

The weather has cooled off a good bit this week, raining off and on but like beautiful temperatures.

We met a super crazy guy this week tracting. As soon as he opened the door we felt something was off. He started telling us his weird belief that man was God. It was basically a modern day Nehor. He told us though that he used to be a pastor and "made $225,000 a year leading people astray." It's sad that so many churches are like that down here just like a business.

That's about it though... Elder Zimmerman and I are still getting along great and having a great time. Hope you all have a great week and hope you have a fun time camping with the girls Mom haha.
