2 weeks to go in the mission/lots of investigators!

I would love to recieve that book [Home with Honor]. Im just finishing up the Doctrine and Covenants right now, then I have to read the Pearl. My favorite books that I've read in the mission are the Book of Mormon and Jesus the Christ. Ive learned to like reading, it always starts my day nicely.

As for the baptisms, I do not think we will have another baptism in the next 2 weeks.  We have a lot of investigators but the deal is they all have complicated situations like a lot of them need to get divorces and re married so they can get baptized, then we have this kid named Franco that really wants to get baptized but his parents wont let him till he turns 18 in october.  So I'll miss that one and pretty much all the other baptisms we have set up, but I've tried in my mission to leave my areas better than I found them and here I believe I've done that so I feel pretty good about how I'm leaving Claypole. Also yesterday we got a new bishop, which always helps the work because new bishops always want to help  missionary work, and to make it better hes only 24 years old and an former missionary... which is even better. He is very animated  in helping us so we are excited for how the near future is going to be.

As for our numbers, they are all growing which is great.  We had a great week.  I did exchanges with the zone leaders and learned a lot from Elder Lucas from Paraguay.

Im very excited to see you all and you're all still in my prayers. Ill try to take lots of pics in the next 2 weeks so we can have some good ones to look at when i get back.... any pic requests?

I love you all sooooo much

Hi there!
I also love reading but I've never heard about that book of Mormon.
I'm also in Buenos Aires apartments and although I'm on holidays, I go every Sunday to church.
