It has been a good week this week. We've found some new people to teach this week, including a British lady, which was pretty neat. We've also been able to teach a lot of good leassons with members. The only teenage priest in our ward came out with us several times. He is a good kid. He's really cool and is a pretty good teacher. Elder Blalock has taught him some magic tricks in return for coming out with us. C. is getting SO close to baptism. She tore up her cigarettes and flushed them down the toilet while we were visiting her, but she couldn't keep herself from buying more. Not yet, anywyay. She only smokes a couple a day and is working down to zero. Please keep praying for her. We had an exchange with our district leader and his companion this week, so I got to work with Elder Bowler for a while. It's always interesting to see the different styles that missionaries have. Elder Blalock and I were able to finally get in contact with a part member family that the other elders were working with before we got here. We've tried to text, call, and visit them, but nothing has worked up until a few days ago, when they left us a voicemail saying they missed the missionaries and the church. We visited them, and they showed up on Sunday. It was pretty neat. Overall, things are going well in our area. I hope you all have a good week!
