March 4th, 2015

So, this week was really good! We did a bunch of tracting and that's pretty much the only way we have to find new investigators here. It's been slow for he whole mission, but it's taking a turn for the better. Our zone is the best! It's full of hard working missionaries and we are all like best friends. We are in the Rochester west zone and Batavia found 26 new investigators last week! And we found a couple as well, so did Spencerport. Warsaw has some baptisms coming up... So the zone is doing great!

We met this Ukrainian guy this week that doesn't speak English, so we are going to go over to his house and give him a Ukrainian Book of Mormon and watch the restoration in Ukrainian with him. We will see how that goes. We got two pretty promising new investigators this week who are interested in the Book of Mormon. Apparently there is a guy in our apartments somewhere who wants a Book of Mormon and wants to join our religion, who talked to the Spencerport elders.  We just have to find him. The problem is that there is hundreds of people on our apartments.

We got to go to the Peter Whittmer farm to the chapel there for a special training for our zone. It will probably be the only time I get to go there. It is in Fayette and it is where the church started so it was pretty cool. We were there for six hours!

Another cool thing is we got to take the brand new mission van there so there was twelve of us missionaries in the party van going on a road trip    (I'll send ya pics) we did a. Inch of gardening for members and for the Catholic Church this week. The members till their garden by hand with pitchforks because it is better for the dirt so that was pretty tiring. Then we planted a bunch of plants and did mulch in all of the flowerbeds around the Catholic Church. A service sorority from the college was there helping us as well. I think it's the only good sorority in town. Ha-ha. And we took a less active member with us on teaching visits to our investigator bill and I think it really helped both of them. So hopefully both of them start coming to church. Anyways that's pretty much it.

Love ya!!

Ps. We found a full court with short hoops so we are playing dunk ball for p-day with Spencerport and the four Batavia elders. If it's not too hot!
