It's so cold!!!!!  Well, not really.  It's only like 50 degrees.  But I am FREEZING!  Haha it's all good though. I've got my sweater.  It keeps me warm.  Well this last week was pretty good!  There really isn't much to report though.  We are just clicking along.  Trying to find more people to teach.  We received a few referrals last week though and it looks like a couple of them are pretty promising! So that will be our focus this week.  Our investigators are doing pretty well though.  They still haven't come to church yet, which is a problem.  They won't ever progress until they come to church.  So that's what we have been working on with them. Mainly we are working with the Katomski family, Guy Manasuk, Roger Haller, and hopefully we will be able to start working with Kimberly. We still haven't been able to meet with her yet because of a whole lot of different reasons.  But hopefully this week!

I haven't been to see Joanie yet, but we will definitely swing by this week!  

Oh oh oh!  The best news of all!  It is official.  This isn't a false alarm.  It is actually going to happen.  We are getting iPads!!!  They will be here on May 15.  When they get here we will also get to start using Facebook!  It's going to be great haha.  I will probably have more information on it all next week though.  Hopefully anyway! 

Well it sounds like everything is going well back home!  Wow!  Bishops Story is incredible!  I'm going to copy and paste so all my friends can read it haha.  
 "He was telling about an experience he had as a missionary in Australia.  He said that many of his companions didn't like him very much because he was very much a "letter of the law" kind of missionary.  If the handbook said to be out doing missionary work until 9:00 than that is what he was going to do!  So one night they had finished their appointments a little early.  It was like 8:45ish and his companion just wanted to go home.  But he wouldn't let him.  He said they needed to be working until 9.  So they found a cul-de-sac that they decided to tract out.  The end of the cul-de-sac was at the top of a hill.  And there was a huge party going on.  So, they were fearless and decided to go talk to them.  Well. they obviously weren't interested.  So they knocked on a few more doors with no success and were back down at the opening of the cul-de-sac with five minutes left before 9.  So the Bishop pulled out his planner and was trying to decide what to do with the five extra minutes.  His companion was very frustrated.  Then all of a sudden he heard a gunshot and found himself flat on the ground!  He had been shot in the back by one of the party goers at the end of the cul-de-sac!!  Can you believe that?  The chapel was completely silent as he told this story.  No one had ever heard it before!  Turns out that the bullet penetrated his suit jacket and his white shirt, but stopped there.  It didn't leave a hole in his under garments or hurt him at all.  He shared his testimony about obedience and the protection it provides.  It was awesome!" 

That is such a cool story Sade!  That's so great that you were able to be a great influence in another person's life!  It is the best feeling! 

Well, I hope you all have a great week!  I love you all!  

Love, Elder Wise
