I hope everyone had a happy Easter. Ours was very nice here. We took a challenge from our zone leaders to not tract this week so that we could try some more creative and hopefully more effective finding methods. As a result we have done some 2-2-5ing (knocking doors directly around members, former investigators, etc.) and have tried to follow up with potential investigators that we have found. This has brought us some success. We are still working with some of the same people, though progress is slow. C. may or may not be moving soon and is continuing to try to kick her smoking habit. She has made so much progress. We had another exchange this week. Elder Bowler the district leader came into our area with me. We had a pretty good time. Elder Blalock and I each were sick at different times during the second half of the week which slowed us down a bit, but were able to do some things. We even had a surprise member-present lesson when a less-active man came over while we were teaching his neighbor on her porch. He gave some good input. It's funny because he and his family lived in Marble Cliff while I was there and moved here shortly before I was transferred. Easter was good. We had dinner with the Mizers and visited Sister G. in the retirement community. This morning we played baseball with our district, which was pretty fun. I'm almost out of time, but I hope you all have a good week!
