Got the Package and Working with Michael and Joseph

   I was sick again this week, had a bacteria called Shigella. Was pretty nasty for about 4 days, but I'm doing alright now. Shigella is kind of like salmonella a little bit. Other than that it's been a nice week. 
   We had a zone conference this week on Thursday. We had a lot of training opportunities, and it was a really nice experience to became extra motivated to do the work and to work hard and to work effectively. It was also pretty nice to get to meet with some other missionaries throughout the mission. 
   There are a few investigators that we have been working on this week who are doing really well. One of them is a pair of brothers named Michael and Joseph. They are in their 20's and are working as electricians. They are doing really well, reading the Book of Mormon and everything. We have only met them for about a week but they are progressing fairly well. Another guy that we are working on is Simon. We have been teaching him for close to 2 months now, and he has been super close to baptism for like three weeks but out of nowhere he has just been super busy over the last few weeks. he has been so busy we haven't been able to teach him the last few commandments to prepare him for baptism and to have him interviewed. Me being sick hasn't helped either. He has been still coming to church though luckily. And he is still reading the book of Mormon. This week we made him schedule time to meet with us (he had to cancel a few appointments at work and stuff) and I really feel that this week he will finally be baptized. 
   Nothing too exciting this week. At least nothing that I remember. But aside from the sickness it has been a good week.
Love you guys, stay strong. 9 more months

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH for the package that you sent!! I love the instant gravy mix. I love the taco mix. I love the sloppy joe mix. I love the Alfredo mix. I love the chocolate. I love the mashed potatoes. I love the cheeses. I love the Beef Jerky. I love the Pringles. I love the crystal light. But you know what thing I loved the most... I loved the letters and the pictures of my family. Love you guys. Have a great week.

P.S. I showed the pictures that you sent to me to the other missionaries in my district, and when they saw the pictures of me they were sore amazed at how fat I once was. I believe that you will also be sore amazed at how different I look now. I guess that's my funny story for the week. My companion didn't even recognise me in the pictures that you sent me.
