Well it is snowing here as it says in my title but fun to have at the same time. But this week has been going awesome. well the new investigators that we are teaching are doing awesome. They dont have a date yet but our goal is to have a date by the end of this week. We also have two more investigators that want to be baptized and have permission from their parents to be baptized. So a huge miracle.one is 8 the other 11, and the last one 14. The 14 year olds name is Marlene and that is the referral investigator. She has been coming to church for about 2 weeks now. The other two are from a year convert and they are her younger sisters. We have been working hard and getting things ready for the week. We have a lot of work ahead of us to build the testimonies of these great people. We also have been working with Less actives who are slowly coming back. But we will get them back by the end. Love you all!--

So this week was a blast because of how many things have been moving. We had Alexs Baptism on Saturday of last week and it was such a blast. It was such a rewarding experience that it brings any missionary to tears, except me of course. haha.
But we have some new people to teach and a bunch of things happening with our already teaching people, like meeting with them. But we have not been able to get out this week due to that accursed sickness bug that's been going around. But still having a joyous time. The time is just always flying by. Well especially for Elder Clegg my dear comp of mine. He sadly is like shoot I go home in a month. Which is sad to me also. But that is why time is so precious. You just learn to keep on moving and getting things to work. We have been teaching for example the Bourne Family and they are so cool. They have a lot of growth and still growing and as the missionary that was apart of there conversion it brings great pride to know that all is going great and they are continuing in there journey in the gospel. I want everyone in the world both here in Ohio and back in Utah, Idaho, North Carolina, or where ever you are reading this to read the message of the Book of Mormon. It is a true Testimony that Jesus is the Christ. I know this and I know that you all can know this as well.

So I am not TRANSFERRED!!!!! I am so excited and it is going to be a great transfer. This area is a blast and I love every minute of it. This work is so great and the changes you see in people is so amazing and you grow to love God every minute of it. Just like this Saturday we have a baptism planned for the Bournes son Alex. It is such a great opportunity to teach this fine young man. He has a ton of Energy and is always ready to shoot nerf guns at you/we shoot him back. haha. But he is so great and so loving, if only everyone was to see the vision that God love you and he wants the very best for. That is why he sends trails and adversities. This gospel that has been restored to the fullest is meant for you and for me and for all to come closer to Christ. The only one that stops progression to come back with God is you and you alone. No ones actions can stop you from progressing. Love this gospel and I have so much more that I have planned to see and do. Continue strong don't let things be your barriers from true happiness. Funny how life does that to you happy one minute and still happy the next. Even in times of struggle. Continue on and Staying Strong
