February 10, 2014 Alrighty so this past week has been full of excitement. So much has happened. But where to begin. I guess i'll begin with the biggest news. We got Ipads. Ya thats right, they've been talking about it forever and now we finally got them. We had a zone conference that started at 8 in the morning and we didn't leave till 5 at night, it was the longest meeting ever and it was all on ipads. We didn't get them till half way through and of course once we got them everyone zoned out and was messing around on them instead of listening, but it was all good. The Ipads are so much of a hassle right now, all our planning and all of our area book(teaching records) have to all be put on it. And it just takes so much time to do so. But when it comes to teaching it's really nice, we can show videos and other things on it. They also have a lot of restrictions, we can't download anything and if we try doing so, or going to a site on the interent thats not allowed it gets red flaged and you get your ipad taken away. They have so many rules on them, i feel i i'm going to do something on accident and loose my ipad. But other than that we also had some other exciting news. A little while ago we got a media referral for a Johny Brown, but was never able to go see him until recently. We called him on the phone and he just sounded awesome as we were talking to him. When we went over we had an amazing visit. Turns out he is actually a member, got baptized back in the 1980's and he just recently had moved here, he has been less-active for the past year or so but wanted to get back. He has a fiance who has a 6 year old daughter and he just wants to do everything right with her, and wants hers to join the church. Her name is Tiffany and she is amazing. They came to church yesterday and had a wonderful experience, the only bad thing was during gospel principles class the ward mission leader teaches and he always likes to focus on one person for the entire class and yesterday it was her, but it all went good and she didn't get turned away. We are going to go see them again tomorrow and set a baptism date with her. It should go really well. And that about all the exciting news for the week, this coming saturday Chelsie is getting baptized and the Sister's have a baptism earlier that day also, so it's going to be a wonderful day. Also next week is transfers and we're thinking that i will get transfered since i have been here so long. We'll see what happens. I love you all so much.
