It's a boy... it's a girl... it's a... zebra..?

Transfers happened this week. Well actually they're happening tomorrow. And I'm staying in the area! Elder Iwertz is leaving. He's going over to Midvale, in one of my old areas. That should be good. (The one where all the delgado's, and kody, and aubrianna, and mikayla and everyone were baptized). I'll be getting Elder Durfee!! Do you remember him? He's the one who trained Elder Lamb, the one that my sister Sydnee taught. And he's super crazy so it should be fun and interesting! haha. Crazy in a good way. But he speaks spanish, so that's why it's called a zebra companionship. One english speaking zone leader and one spanish speaking one. I think so that we can go on exchanges with (and it be more effective) the elders in the area. but yeah things should pick up really quickly, I'm excited for it. So as far as the address goes, it will be the same!

We went to the temple this week! As a mission. We went to the jordan river temple. That was pretty awesome. The Spirit is so strong inside of the temple. Prayers get answered 100 times easier, and you can just sit there and ponder about things and get answers or learn things that way. I love it. The Gospel definitely is true! and so is this Church!

We found a new investigator this last week. On saturday night. His name is Jim. He is so awesome!!! His son who lives with him is a recent convert to the Church. He got baptized in February to the young single adult ward. And now he's being a missionary! He told us to visit with his dad. And so we did. he was really down in the pits, and feeling really depressed. We shared a few scriptures with him, and talked abuot the gospel with him for about an hour. At the end of it he was crying a little bit (he's a pretty rough looking 55 year old man, so it was cool to see that) and knew that this was the time for him to change his life. He accepted the invitation to be baptized on april 26th! That will be awesome. His son is a great support for him. We met with him yesterday, and he was totally 180 degrees different! He was happy, and really excited to read the Book of Mormon and just to soak everything in. I was sad that we could only stay an hour with him. 

Other than that, we gave a talk in sacrament meeting! That went really really well. I think a lot of things clicked with the ward so things should pick up there pretty soon. I'm excited! haha. I love this work and never want to stop doing it. I don't think I ever will, either. =)

Love you!
Elder Wilson
