It's already week 3...

Time is flying by soooooo fast!!  It's so crazy.  It feels like I just barely got here to Colton.  Let's see, what all happened last week.  Well obviously the big news is the mission conference was last week!  It was super awesome!!  Elder Anderson is super cool.  And super funny! He just kept cracking jokes and stuff.  He taught us about the Atonement.  Which was super amazing!!  One of the interesting things he said was when he was talking about receiving answers to questions and stuff and he said "If you want more answers, spend more time on your knees."  Which is so true!  We have to pray always.  He also told a cool story.  When he was a newish member of the 70 he went in and was going over some stuff with President Faust and he had a lot of questions and problems going on with his assignment, and he asked Pres Faust for the answer and Pres Faust leaned back in his chair and thought for a sec, then said "Have you prayed all night long like Enos?"  And Elder Anderson was like "No..." and Pres Faust said "Once you do that, you will have your answer." I was like whoa.  That's a whole lot of praying.  It's true though!!  God will always answer our prayers if we put in the effort that is required. 
 We taught Ransom again last week and we set a baptism date with him for April 5!  Sadly, he didn't come to church with us this last sunday though, so to be baptized by the 5, he is going to have to come every sunday between now and then.  So please pray for him!! He is awesome!!  We also found out for sure that he is super loaded.   As in he has millions in the bank.  He get's three, $250,000 checks a year because of his turkey ranch in Arizona.  And he just put's it in the bank.  He's such a cool guy! 
Let's see, what else?  Oh we got a new investigator this last week.  Her name is Sabrina.  And her husband is named Jose.  He's not really interested right now but I think as he sees the change in Sabrina he will want to start learning too.   They have a 1 year old son named Sol.  He's super cute.  I guess some missionaries talked to Sabrina like 6 or 7 months ago, set up a return appointment, and then never showed up.  And she was really bummed about it cause she's been looking for a church and she's really open to learning new things and stuff.  We taught her the Restoration a little bit in our first meeting.  We have only met with her the one time but we are going back this week. 
And that's really all that happened last week I think.  Nothing too exciting.  Which is weird considering where I am serving.  But it's cool.  Haha
 Well, missionary work is great!! I love it!! And I love you all! Thanks for all your support and prayers!!
Love Elder Wise
