Sounds like you guys have been busy! We have too, which is a blessing.
So, it's amazing to be a missionary! We had a mission meeting this week with ALL the missionaries in our whole mission! It was to talk about the announcement, our mission goal of 100 baptisms in the month of December, and conversion as missionaries. It was a great motivator to me and a great call to repentance to be better for me. I know it had a profound effect on many missionaries just because of the Spirit I felt there. Man, how I loved the thoughts shared by our leaders. I especially loved the thoughts shared by Elder Washburn and Elder McKay. I am continually reminded every time I see them how very blessed I have been to be companions with not only some of the best missionaries I think there are, but some of the best people I've ever met. I feel undeserving of these blessings.

This week was a little crazy for me in Red Leaf, but we still saw miracles happen and we saw great results in our key indicators. We still have a ton of room for improvement though. I went on an exchange with Elder McElroy and Elder Wall in their areas, but it worked out well. I was out of the area two days plus most of the day on Tuesday, so I felt a little bit out of it, but Elder Diaz did a great job in helping the work progress with the help of Elder Belnap, and Elder Pickering. The exchanges were good.
Alene, Paul, and Shantele Lucero we taught a couple times this week and finally got a member to come with us. It was a very cool lesson, and Paul was itching for his mom to stop talking so he could start reading the Book of Mormon--pretty cool! I have felt much more responsibility the last few weeks, and I feel that I cannot let the Lord down. We couldn't find Cody this week and his phone is not working. Lakthong is a very humble Cambodian guy that I strongly feel will accept the gospel. He is just so humble and so willing to do what God wants. We are meeting with the Mussos tomorrow and we are meeting with the Martins sometime this week. Everyone is doing well. And there should be many more miracles to report next week. I love you guys. I love the gospel. How great is the calling to preach it to the world!
