Nobody got baptized this week. :( Well for us at least. There were 5 baptisms that happened in the zone though!! So that was awesome. And Kennedy Ferguson is getting baptized this week at 1pm! :) She is pretty awesome. She has wanted to be baptized for a while now but her mom didn't feel like she was ready. But lately, she has asked her if she can be baptized. And she allowed her to!
But there will be more later. Next week.

We had zone training meeting this week which went really well. We had prayed beforehand that we would be able to to teach by the Spirit and I think that that definitely happened. A lot of people came up to us afterwards and said that it was good. We trained on finding, improving street contacting, and praying. Because we need to focus on those things as a zone. Especially the praying part. There is no way that we can do this work without Divine help. So I thought that it was cool how it worked out. 

We have been meeting with Lauren recently, and she is so legit. We have taught her a few times and she is really moving towards her baptismal date that she has agreed to, on the 22nd. She lives with her roommate, Allison. She is a primary teacher. And a very good friend to her. She told us though that she and Allison went to visit her old house where her dad had just recently died. She was pretty shaken up about that. I felt really prompted to offer a blessing of comfort. She accepted, and she said that that really helped. Thank you, Spirit! =D

We're also working with a 12 year old boy named Skyler Peterson. But he is definitely not the average 12 year old. He is SO SMART. and very mature. He also has cerebral palsy. But he is so happy and LOVES THE GOSPEL. He loves going to church, going to boy scouts, going to mutual, meeting all the people in church, everything. He's so legit. He is super excited to be baptized too. He's on date for the 22nd! :)

So yeah. A lot of good things are happening right now. And I love it. I want this to keep going forever! Never slow down. And neither should any of you out there!
I love you guys,
Elder Wilson
 A weird text that we got from our mission president. It definitely did not sound like him. 
He is usually really serious and formal. We still have no idea what he was trying to get at. haha.

The best looking Elders out there, hands down
