Dear Family and Friends

I am doing great. Last week was transfers and I am still in Kansas City with Elder Weatherford. We got lots of new Elders and Sisters, a total of 32 new missionaries. Elder Croft, in my district, left to finish training Elder Truck. Elder Truck was in the same District in the MTC.  Elder Weatherford is still waiting for the Visa to come. We are expecting a call this afternoon, to get an update. 
This Last week was weird.   We had lots of appointments dropped. We had lots of members drop food off at our place instead of feeding us.  It has been hot in the mid afternoons. 

David is doing awesome. On Monday he had a change of heart.  He was reading from the Book of Mormon and began to understand it and want to finish it and not put it down. He also felt the spirit while reading it. He told us everything. He has stop smoking again and is doing it because he wants to not because "Elder Weatherford wants him to".  He wants to be baptized. He has a date for the 14th of next month. We have seen him every day so far since Monday. The other Elders in the ward have also seen him almost every day too. He now has a testimony of Joseph Smith, prophets and about the Book of Mormon.
Donzell is doing great we taught him about commandments this week.

Labrenda she has been too busy to meet with us this week. 

Dewey wants us to meet with him but calls before we go over to tell us he doesn't want to meet. We don't know if he wants to know more of what we have to share.

Saturday we help move the Hails Family. Bro Hails was our ward mission leader. They move to a house just 2 blocks outside our ward. It was sad to see them move.

We saw Sky and Baby Joseph this week. They are doing better. They are living with Overfelts. The Overfelts are teaching Sky all he needs to know to be a Father and to take care of a baby.  We also went to a Hospital to give William a blessing. He broke his back jumping out of a window. He is a less active member from a ward close by.
This week we have an all leaders conference that we get to attend.
I am doing great here. We have been trying to stay busy seeing investigators, less actives, and trying to find more people to teach. I am grateful to be out here serving a mission. I am having a blast. I miss all of you and hope you are doing great.
