By small and simple things are great things brought to pass

This week has been pretty awesome! We got three new investigators this week, the most notable one so far is one of our investigator's fiance. She always avoided us when we were there until one day when we stopped by he wasn't there and when we started talking to her she decided to listen. We gave her a Book of Mormon and came back the next day to find out she had read 21 chapters (that's 20 more chapters than we told her to read, haha)!!! She says it all makes perfect sense to her and loves how the BoM answers all of her questions. She's on goal to be baptized may 16th if all goes well. Hopefully she'll help her fiance progress that much too.

One of the other new investigators is an older Catholic lady we found street contacting one day last week. We've also started going over to C's parents house to teach them and her younger brother. Her mom just wants to bash with us but her dad and brother seem a little more interested. We also went with C to the family history center yesterday and she's going to start trying to get her parents to come and start helping her out with it. Hopefully that will help get them hooked on the gospel! Family history work is so sweet. I got to get on and look up some cool stories about my ancestors while we were there too. 

That's all I can really think to tell y'all right now. I'm glad to hear about the great week y'all had too. I hope everything keeps going well. I've learned a lot recently that God doesn't settle for second best or just mediocre, so we shouldn't either. We need to keep on progressing every day and continue to work work work. So keep reading and praying and doing the simple things that will help you grow and learn. By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.
