Dear family and friends,How are things going!? It sounds like you all had such a great week! It feels like yesterday I was writing you. So not too much has happened since I last wrote you. Last week we were crazy busy the whole week! Missionary Leadership Council was good! We spent most of last week either on the road, in meetings, or planning. So it was very busy! Zone Training meeting went really well! We trained on a new method of role playing. Which is Explain, Practice, Evaluate, Re-Practice. The only thing that makes it different from the old role playing method is the evaluation. It is a lot more comfortable and easy. And you learn a lot from it. It almost makes role playing a council setting with your companion or district. So we think this will help the mission with teaching skills! It will be awesome to see all the missionaries progression. We had a two and a half hour meeting, which usually those drag on and on. But for everyone there they all said it went by fast, and they learned a lot! Which is awesome to hear! I finally have some good news! On Saturday we were able to set Johnathan (our nine year old part member investigator) on date for February 21st!! His grandparents in Florida were finally able to establish a set date they could be here for! So that is the goal at the time! Hopefully we don't need to push it back. But we know he will make it! We were informed a couple of days ago by the assistants that we will be giving the training in Zone Conference next week! So it will be back to planning a training this week. This time we have a harder subject we have to train on getting the investigator to teach 50% of the lesson. And we don't really know where to start wit that one! We're just going to have to count on the Lord to help us! Well I hope you all have a great week! I love you!
