Could be better, could be worse

First off, let me tell you about the investigators we currently have! We had to drop 3 of them this week, which was really quite sad. Our pool is beginning to dry up again, which really just stinks! We no longer have any people committed to a specific baptismal date. One no longer wants visits, one is still pretty hard to get a hold of and the other didn't come to church this week which means he cannot be baptized on his scheduled date. So! As you can see, we have a fair amount of work to do! But, the good news is that our district is still doing amazing! We represent, in numbers of proselyting young missionaries, a fifth of our entire zone. Yet within our district we have all of the zones current BCDs! Holler, right? Last week we help all but one! So that is really good for our district. But also sad that the rest of the zone isn't having much luck right now. We had a member out with us each day this past week. Is that not a blessing or what? We received a zone training on Tuesday about that very thing actually. Instead of just having members come out with us, we are to be working with each of the members within the walls of their own homes, teaching someone that they have found, not us! I am hoping that can happen. It really is a different work you are a part of when that is the case. Because the people we are working with have no cars, no phones... It's very very difficult to get in contact with them when that is the case! Cause they are always out walking the streets, or you can't ever call ahead. And so we end up having a lot of dropped appointments, non church attendance, and so forth. So! Our focus this week is going to be to find the very elect! Those who have been prepared to receive us. :) My email this week from President Smith was informing us that Elder Ballard was going to be in our mission March 8th, and that we were all invited to come and participate in that meeting!! I am stoked. Beyond stoked!! Elder Ballard is the apostle that set President Smith apart. I think that is totally neato!! I don't think I have anything else for you all. I know this work is true. I love you all, and hope you have a great Valentine's day!! Elder Smith
