Shelby isn't on date. We had a good lesson with her and our ward mission leader and Relief Society President, but something is still keeping her from getting baptized, so we'll have to figure that out. Also, they sold their house so they could be moving anytime and she didn't make it to church again. That's kinda disappointing, but I still feel like she will join the church. Something interesting is a Baptist preacher is going to feed us dinner tomorrow and wants to have a "Bible study" with us. We had tracted into them and they wanted to talk with us. Hopefully, we can prevent it being a Bible bash. I'm hopeful that as we get closer to summer, things pick up for us. Right now it's still really icy and it just snowed last night. I'm excited for conference, it came way fast.
Something they do here, that I haven't seen anywhere else is have a transfer site next to the dumpsters where people leave stuff that is still good for someone else to take. That way people don't have to dumpster dive. We've found some cool stuff like an Iron Man pull up bar and running shoes. We drive by on our way to our apartment.
Not much else happened this week except we had specialized training from President Dance, mostly about making baptismal services more meaningful. Thank you so much for your care and your prayers. I love you and hope you have another wonderful week.
