He Knows Jesus Is Our Savior

My dearest family,

We have had such a great week! Sister Morley came in on Tuesday from the MTC and so now we are in a trio. She is from Utah and just turned 19 in December. It has been crazy, but I love working with both of my companions. 

We taught ______ more this week and he is doing really well. He came to church and even bore his testimony in priesthood about how he knows that Jesus is our Savior and that he is so grateful for this chance to learn about this church. I am so grateful to be able to teach him and for his desire to learn. We are teaching him the word of wisdom tonight and we will see how that goes, because we already know he has problems with it. He has a ton of faith though and I know that he can follow it with the help of Heavenly Father. 

We also are teaching a guy named ________. He is progressing really well and is very smart. In the lessons he always asks really good questions. He accepted a baptismal date this week for the 14th of April, but we are probably going to pass him to the singles ward because we think he will progress better there. He came to church though and really liked it. 

We are still teaching ________ but some of the appointments have fallen through and she can't come to church because she works on Sundays. She still says that she is going to try to get off and we are planning on teaching the Sabbath day soon. She is still planning on getting baptized on the 31st if all goes well. We tried talking with her daughter more and she is not interested at all, but her grandchildren love when we come over. 

Lets see who else... there is a less active in our ward and she is friends with _______'s family. They are having them over for dinner soon and invited us to come which is great! Hopefully we will be able to teach ________ again if her family is OK with it. 

Well, I don't even remember all that happened this week so sorry this is probably a lame email. Everything is great here though. I love my companions, love the area, and love the people so much!!! I am so blessed to be out here!
