I'm Doing Pretty Good!

Hello Everyone!  I'm doing pretty good this week! It's been pretty snowy over here! Which is crazy, because we had one day where it was 65 degrees and then 2 days later it snowed 2 inches! All of these temperature changes have given me a cold.
This has been a pretty busy week for our investigators. A lot of them have had different issues come up, such as changing work schedules or illness, which has made it tricky to get in with them.  Alex is doing really well, though! He has been reading and praying on his own and has also decided to pray about a date to be baptized! He even made it to a youth night that our church held, and he loved it! So, it's been great to see him! Dolphin has had a really busy week, so we haven't met with him. However, he was able to make it to church on Sunday and he even brought his wife, Joy! It was so cool to see all of the members reach out to them. We are planning on seeing Dolphin tonight, as well, so it should be good!
I don’t have time to write more, I’ll try to do better next week. Hope you have a great week! 
Old Ellicott City, which is in our area.  It's pretty cool!

This is our backyard! It looked really cool!

We went to Panda Express.  Found a funny fortune!

The Lord Puts People Into Our Path

Hello Everybody! It’s been a rainy week over here in Maryland, but a pretty great week for our investigators! We had a really awesome lesson with Dolphin and both his mom and his wife were able to sit in with us for the lesson. It was fantastic! We brought a member of the Relief Society with us to help introduce them to her, for when they came to church on Sunday. Dolphin stayed for all 3 hours this Sunday and he really enjoyed it. If you remember Alex, the 15-year-old we met last week, we had a lesson with him and his mom and dad sat in on the lesson, as well. It was great because it was well received, and Alex was super excited to learn more. The Lord has definitely had a hand in our area! It really helped, since this week I was also pretty sick for a day and wasn't able to go out and visit people.
I know that the Lord puts people in our path who need what we have to share.  I also know that when we reach out, even in small ways, it can make a huge difference in the lives of others. I hope you have a great week!

Sorry, there are not a whole lot of pictures this week. 
I will see if I can take more this upcoming week.

This is me, sick with Elder Haynie.
