Toured a Battleship on 5/6/13 with mission president.

Hey ya'll, so we had a good week this week.  We are preparing Olegario for baptism.  We had a good lesson with him last night.  We went over the Law of Chastity and Word of Wisdom and thankfully his only problem was tea and he committed to stop.  I will definitely tell all-ya'll about the baptism next monday and how everything went.  And, I will be taking a picture with him.  Luke's voice seems to be getting lower.  I thought that was funny.  We have been working hard and this area is doing great.  We have a lot of investigators so I will only be able to talk about a few.  Calvin, he is a stubborn old man haha.  He will not pray and everytime we go over to his house, we ask him if he has been reading the Book of Mormon and everytime we get the same answer that he is too busy.  We are going to try to figure out some new ways to come across to him.  On thursday, we were out tracting for our Hour of Power.  And, a lady called us over and we started talking to her and shared a lesson about the How to Begin Teaching Bullet Points in preach my gospel.  (Kolton and Bailee if ya'll want to prepare for your mission start getting familiar with these bullet points and if you can memorize them they are used a lot)  And, she said that she needed to come to church so we gave them our church's address and she and her daughter showed up!  It was awesome.  Anyways, we also have been teaching a family named the Arredondos.  They committed to baptism on the 25th, but they didn't come to church, so it looks like they aren't getting baptized then.  They are just really flaky and don't really want to commit to anything because they don't like change.  They are a good family though.  One thing I have definitely noticed out here is families rarely exist.  It is extremely sad.  This world is getting worse and worse.  The only thing that will hold it together is families and people just don't realize that.  I love you and hope all is well.  Keep up the good work at home!
