Dear Family,
So I guess everybody has heard about Jon coming to the Best in the WEST!!! Thats so cool! I hope I get to be companions with him!!! all of the LVW will be under water haha. well thats pretty cool! I got that news while I was sick on saturday when Elder Golden and Elder Lee were at dinner, we went on exchanges, and they were at the Mechams house so she got on facebook and found out that Jon was going to my mission!
Well since it was a short week not much has gone on since wednesday.  We were able to get a few new investigators... one of them is a part member family and the husband hasnt taken the lessons since he was 20 and they are in their 70s so he said he would try out the new way of the lessons so ya!
the bulmers, our investigators that are kinda close to baptism are out of town for 6 weeks so thats a bummer!!! but hopefully we will stay in this area and be able to baptize them!
well sunday rolls around finally! (saturday I was sick) so then we were able to teach Donna, one of our new investigators from last week... and then we went to dinner with the Edgels. Well After dinner we take Jayden Edgel out will us and we go over to some less active members n the ward and had a good spiritual experience with Finding Faith in Christ... usually we just watch it and talk about it a bit but this time we answered a lot of their questions and talked about it a lot so its pretty cool! After that we see a car on the side of the road and turns out that she is out of gas... so we push her a half mile down the road and when we finally get there she tells us to wait there... and she goes in and gets 20 dollar bills for each of us... after we refuse she says 'well i have to give you something' so we said here is what you can do for us... I pull out a copy of the Book of Mormon that I placed on the trunk of her cdar while we pushed it.. and she said she would read it! I like to think of it as ammon teaching king lamoni.... 'thus he was caught with guile'... haha so she kinda felt that she owed us one so I think she will read and give us a call!!
Well sorry its kinda been a boring week but things are going well in the Las Vegas West Mission!!!
Elder John
Keep the Faith!
