Another week has come and gone! There are four things that I want to tell you about so here we go!

Zone Conference was a great time for us. We were able to get together with the entire high desert for one big meeting. President and Sister Godwin gave trainings. As a side note I have grown to love our mission president and his wife immensely. We also had some trainings from the assistants which is to include an old companion Elder Sevison. We learned a lot about repentance, using our area book, and reaching our mission goals. Elder Hargraves and I gave an awesome training on making nightly planning more effective! We began by tying our ankles together as if we were ready to start a three legged race, We had signs to show what we represented. I had a sign that said daily planning and Elder Hargraves had a sign that said Weekly planning. We acted our parts very well. We ran towards our baptismal goal not unified and trying to go different directions to prove the point that we often are very faithful and excited in our weekly plans but we don't use those goals and we don't have the same faith in our nightly plans. We then ran together in unity to reach our goal. It went very well and everyone thanked us for the training when we were through. 

We have been able to pick up two new investigators this recently and set dates with them! One is Jason. He has family who are members and he has had a rough background. I can't wait to see how the gospel helps him. The other we set was yesterday with a girl named Roxie. She is very quiet but she is so humble and ready to get close to God. She too has had a rough past and is trying to change. We taught the Doctrine of Christ and it went wonderfully. She didn't want to pray at the end of the lesson, but after about ten minutes more of teaching about prayer she was ready. She said a sweet prayer and the spirit was strong. I am glad to see that I will be able to finish off my mission these last few months with some success.
