2 new brothers-- weekly letter

This week was awesome. The weather was beautiful, the people were happy, and Elder Becar and I got some serious work done. This week was especially exciting for me, because I was able to hold interviews with two people that are wanting to get baptized into the ward here. They are both so prepared, and we were able to have a very spiritual service for them after church on Sunday. The members welcomed them enthusiastically, and so it was just a great week all around for us.
Our investigators are not progressing the quickest, but we gave a few of them some very vital commitments, and so we are hoping that we will see some greater progress in them coming up. We do have one couple that is doing really well though, and they said after the baptism yesterday that it is not a matter of "if" they will get baptized, but "when" they feel they are ready for it. With the way that the woman was crying, we are hoping that it will be very soon for them.
This week, we had some really special district meetings. We had interviews with President Kosakduring the meeting, and so it was pretty awesome because we each got to get a much more personal experience with him. This mission is so big that we only see him every few months, so it was cool to be able to hear what he is wanting from us and how he wants the mission to progress. I was able to have a good interview with him, and he was surprised to hear that I only have 6 months left- he thought that I had a bit longer. I wish that he was right, because I love being a missionary.
Have an awesome week! I love you all and wish you the best for your righteous endeavours.
