A Calmer Week

This week was quite a bit calmer, not as many things were going on. But it was still a super good week. A couple really cool things happened. First of all, our investigator Tabby just told us that she has read enough of the Book of Mormon to know that it is true and that she is ready to get baptized whenever! Wahoo! We were really excited. We will set a date with her next time we go over and see her.
So I don't know if I told you but our mission has a goal to reach 300 baptisms before June 30th because that is when our mission president leaves. Well we just had a zone conference yesterday where we were told that we are reevaluating that goal and changing it to 235 baptisms. All the leaders in the mission got together and had a super spiritual impression and experience that we needed to change that goal. So if every companionship gets one baptism before June 30th we will reach that goal and be on track to have 600 baptisms for the year. I'm super pumped about it! Me and Hermana Garner have a goal to get 2 more baptisms before then, and hopefully three. So pray for us to be able to achieve that!
We had an activity with our Spanish ward this week that was super fun. I love the Hispanic culture, they are sooo nice and they know how to have fun. We just played a simple game called "Tengo un Amigo" and they loved it!! It's the game where you say, "I have a friend that is wearing a blue shirt." And then everyone wearing a blue shirt has to get up and switch seats. We could have played it for hours and they still would have loved it, it was awesome.
Nick got the priesthood this week! And he had his interview to go to the temple so that he can go with the ward next week! He's pretty excited about it.

We have an investigator named Giovani that we have been working with for a super long time. We really need him to come to church so that he can continue progressing. Will you pray for him? Thank you!
I don't have any more time, but I love you all and I am doing super good. Oh yeah, they are doing this really cool thing with the sister missionaries now. I  don't know that much about it, but they have called 'sister training leaders' who pretty much act as district leaders for the sisters. They are assigned to go on exchanges and just work with the sisters that they are over. Super cool. I think it will be really awesome. Ok, well I love you all and have a great week!
