Feb. 3, 2014

Happy late birthday Dad! you guys should be getting a letter either today or in the next few days.
So the ground hog saw its shadow? Man I don't want 6 more weeks of winter, not that I believe in that sort of stuff. the weather here is cold its staying in the low teens and we got freezing rain on Friday, so everything is covered in a thin layer of ice, it looks pretty cool.
My new companion is Elder Hendricks, he is from Galesburg Illinois, so he is like 3 hours away from home, but he is waiting on his visa to go to Brazil, so he could be here for 3-4 months or get his visa in a couple of weeks, so its pretty random. but he is a really cool missionary, it should be allot of fun serving with him.
This week went ok, Monday-Tuesday Elder Taft prepared to leave and packed and we visited some members so Elder Taft could say goodbye. and we taught Keim the rest of the commandments and talked about how her reading is going and she is still reading whenever she gets the chance to. they where pretty sad to see Elder Taft go.
And on Wednesday we went to transfers and picked up my new companion. we met with Keim on Friday and just reviewed the interview questions and reviewed some of the things that we taught her, and answered any questions that she had, but she didn't really have any questions, she understands every thing that we taught her.
But she wasn't baptized on Sunday, she wanted her daughters to come to it but they couldn't, due to the weather and it was a busy week for every body, but she is still way excited to be baptized next Sunday, so next week I'll send you pictures of the baptism.
Besides those things nothing else really happened.
We are trying to find more people to teach, but we just aren't having the best of luck, I feel way bad cause in the trainer responsibilities we are to have a big teaching pool and we don't have that :( we only have two people that we are teaching and one of them is getting baptized which is great, but we haven't seen Abdur lately and haven't really been able to have a good sit down with him. I don't know what to do really, besides tracting, but I don't have the greatest out look on that, so its hard to try to motivate me to do that. so that's how I'm feeling right now. sorry to go on about that.
Glad that Dad had a good birth day.

Hope you all have a great week. love ya
