Marshall McDonald and the new area!

Hey fam!

This week was good, but it was super busy. Now that we have the other area combined with our own we have a lot to do haha... a lot! But it's been good.  It keeps us busy all the time, and we really have to rely on the planning sessions, so if someone drops we know exactly what we want to accomplish.

The other missionaries have a few people who will be getting baptized, and we do as well, so on Saturday I went on exchanges with the district leader so he could do the baptismal interviews. He did 5 altogether, and we left at like 7:30am to get to the first one, so it was a super hectic day, but it was good! Mom & Natalie, thanks for the sheet music again! When I went on exchanges on Saturday the baptismal interviews, most of them, were done at chapels.  So while he was in the room with the person, I was on the piano with my boy Marshall :) (Marshall McDonald has amazing hymn arrangements!) It was therapeutic hahaha. But I was wondering, just like you sent me that sheet music, could you also send me the music for “Clair de Lune?" I have the first page memorized still but I'm just like, ahhh, I need to finish it hahaha. That would be the coolest thing ever. Love you!

The next day was Stake Conference, so no one got baptized, but this next Sunday they will. And one of them will have to be interviewed by the Mission President on Tuesday, so it should be good.  It is nice because this past week we've been able to meet a lot of cool people and have lessons with them from the other guys' area. There's a 17 year old girl who just got baptized recently and is almost done reading the D&C, which I was pretty impressed with. She was a referral from a member, who has also converted his friend, and now we're teaching someone else he knows, so we've gotten to work with him a lot.

Sorry there's not too much that happened this week.  I'm just trying to get to know all the different members and investigators in the other area, we spent most of the week there, trying to find balance with the two areas haha.  It will work out though. Thanks for the prayers and everything!

Love you all.  Talk to you soon.

We went to a buffet, a really classy one. I'm sending before and after pictures.  As you can see, when it started we were like yeah, let's do this!  And then after we were dead, but it was good though! Ahhh, they have this sort of sticky toffee pudding and they pour custard on it here.  It’s sick!
