This week has been so fun!  I have been moved to a place called Baytown.  I am serving with Elder Davis and I love it here.  We started out the week a little rough because we don't have very many investigators.  We did a lot of tracting and searching for those who would be willing to listen to our message.  On Saturday night we were bound and determined to find 2 new people on Sunday to achieve one of our goals.  We decided we were going to fast the next day for it and we set apart 3-4 hours to go out and knock doors until we found those 2 new investigators.  The next day we went to church and afterwards headed out to find-em.  We went the whole 3-4 hours without finding anyone that would be willing to listen to our message right then.  We continued to have faith though as we went out later and tried some people that we had knocked into the past few days.  We were then able to teach a young man and will be going back to teach him again, so we got excited because we only had to get one more.  We went and tried a family that we had run into and likewise they let us in and we were able to teach them.  It was by our faith that we were able to find three new people to teach, the Lord truly blessed us and by so doing I have gained a stronger testimony in Fasting.  The Family's Parents names are Jose and Veronica.  Ya'll will probably be hearing more about them in later emails. 
  Elder Davis is an awesome missionary.  He is from Bountiful, Utah.  He has been out for 20 months so he will be returning home soon.  We work really well together and we work hard and have fun. 
  We also had an awesome experience with one of our investigators Sandra.  She is a really nice, older, black lady.  We talked about the Book of Mormon.  She had thoroughly read the introduction, the testimonies, and the first few chapters of 1 Nephi.  We talked to her about what she read and she was able to testify about the Book of Mormon and how she knows that it has to be true.  I will keep y'all updated on how everything is going with her. 
  I love y'all and hope y'all have a wonderful week!
Elder Willden
