The Work is Progressing!

Hey! So this week we had some good progress with our investigators and the work here. We had our last English conversation group for a couple of weeks to let the program rotate and that went well, we had family home evening on Tuesday and had a handful of investigators there and they brought their friends, some of which we are now working with. Namely, there is a guy named Michael and his friend Truman, both Americans who live over here and among other things teach English. We had the first lesson with Michael and it went well. He agreed to read and pray about the Book of Mormon, so we'll have to keep meeting with him. It was kinda strange to teach the first lesson in English to be honest, but it was cool to experience a little bit of what the missionaries back home in the US do. We'll be seeing all of them hopefully this Tuesday along with our other investigators who couldn't make it last week and Elder and Sister Crane will be there so it will be good for them to talk them and discuss the Gospel and become friends. We had Zone Conference this week too, my last one, which was kind of bizarre. There will be zone training meetings but I guess there not really the same. Sometimes the mission has gone by pretty fast and at other times slower, but I'm sure that either way I'll be at the mission home having my final interview before I know it, which will also be unreal I'm sure. You're whole mission you never really anticipate that day coming, as though it does for other Elders and Sisters but you have a special assignment or something haha. You come into the mission office on you're first day here after leaving the mission home and see the pictures of everyone on the board and then you realize that every single person in the mission on that board will be gone before you are, except for those you came with, it's just been an interesting process to see the change happen and almost everyone I knew before is home now but have been replaced by everyone, but the transition has been over 2 years so it's all been step by step so not super alarming. I gotta run, thanks for all you're support and everything you do, have a great time in Lake Powell! I hope that you have a great week. I love you!
