Apostacy-less Missionary Thursday

Last Wednesday for April Fools our whole district pulled a prank on Sister R., President R's wife. We each called in sick with different afflictions at different times and at the end of the last call to her we all shouted out "April Fools". It was fun and we hope she didn't take it too hard. She tried to prank us all back unsuccessfully. Friday was district meeting and President's interviews. Sister R. did not show up for that and we wonder why. After the interviews we all told each other what was said and tried to guess at what that meant for the future. It's possible that I may be staying here one more transfer. Elder B. or Elder K. might go zone leader and Elder P. will definitely be getting transferred from his zone leader area. We're all worried about this a bit too soon. There are still three more weeks left in this transfer.
This week we really tried to push the importance of coming to church and that there is a prophet on the earth today. We told all of our investigators that the prophet would be speaking in General Conference this weekend and tried to get them to come to it. On Saturday there were investigators there, but none of them were ours. Sunday we got four investigators to church for the first session and one for the second. This was impressive because most of them were investigators we just picked up. Well have to see where it goes with them, as well as with all our other investigators. Hopefully they will get baptized but only time will tell.
In General Conference there was a lot of good stuff said. I would have to say my favorite part was the talk where he couldn't text message his conference talk and that we can't Google search a testimony.
Monday and Tuesday we worked it up hard to make up for the lack of work done on conference weekend. Wer'e doing a super awesome job and we hope that doesn't change soon. This area hasn't had a baptism in 18 months and we intend to break that pattern.
Today is zone activity so we should have loads of fun with that.
That's about all that happened this week. Remember the gospel is always true no matter what and stay tuned for next weeks email, hopefully I will have something super exiting to report.
love Elder Fields.
