Transfer 14, Week 4, Lakes Zone, Desert Breeze Ward

Dear Family,
This week has been great!
The ward reported 90% Home Teaching in the last quarter, with our help :). So I told the bishop to give us a list of people that were not visited so we could hit 100%! Also Elder Holland is coming to our stake conference in a few weeks so the stake president asked all the missionaries to visit every member of the ward (starting with less active memebers) and invite them to come. So I made a flyer to pass out to everyone and invite them to Stake Conference! So we should hit closer to 100% home teaching in the ward this quarter! I spend a ton of time inputing all of the people on the ward list into my gps, but now we can have a digital list of people that we have not visited and sweet through them super quick! I'm excited! We are really trying to inspire the zone and motivate them to take this challenge seriously and make the effort to visit everybody!
 This week was pretty slow. We had leadership training this week from 9am to 4pm. It went pretty well and we learned a ton!
We found out this week that one of our investigators is living with his girlfriend and so we will need to teach him more and prepare him more for his baptisimal date of February 22nd. Its amazing to see the transformation in him so far! As of 2 weeks ago he had no belief in God, only in a higher power. But now he is praying and reading the Book of Mormon! So cool!
Sorry this is really short but we are running low on time!
I love you all!
Elder John
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feaast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow"- Ray L. Huntington
