Craziness, March already!  Time just keeps flying by

Well, I wish there was more to report but sadly we literally didn't teach any lessons this week.  100% zeroes all across the board.  We're pounding the pavement, mind you, but the fruits haven't quite been seen yet.  

We did get a chance to stop by Rose, the lady that we helped move.  She was really excited to see us and gave us hugs when we showed up at her house.  That was pretty awkward.  She's Italian so she's really expressive and funny.  Anyway, her house is still an absolute mess from the move, and we got to just chat with her for a few minutes.  We tried to slip in some Gospel conversation but for the most part she dominated the conversation, which is fine.  She is interested in having us over although I'm not sure she quite understands the purpose for our visits.  That can come over time, so I'm not too worried about it.

We had Stake Conference this weekend and had a visit from Elder Pino of the 70.  The adult session was really interesting because they actually talked about Ward Council for the entire session.  They even addressed the fact that it seems more fitting for a leadership training sort of setting, but that the direction given from Elder Ballard was to train the entire Stake about how to have an effective Ward Council.  It was pretty interesting.  President Toone was there as well standing next to our Stake President.  It was pretty funny because our Stake President is probably around Rick's height, and President Toone is 5'24" as he would say.  

We got to go on a couple exchanges which are always good.  Still doing a ton of service which is pretty much the best thing ever.  Hopefully it can soften some hearts and lead to some baptisms, but we'll see.  Maybe the Lord has plans for us other than baptizing people.

Other than that, transfer calls are next week so we'll see what happens there.  Our mission gets brand new iPads this Wednesday for... some reason I guess we'll find out.  They're changing a bunch of stuff about how we do online proselyting and such.  President Toone will also have god-like control over our iPads remotely, which is also pretty cool.  He basically has a "big brother" program where he can watch our every move and turn off certain functions of our iPads remotely.  So that's pretty neat!

I don't think I'll know by next Monday if I'll be transferred or not, so it'll actually be a couple weeks before I can let you know.  They're changing a bunch of logistics about transfer week so... yeah.  Anywho,  have a good week!
