Covering a lot of area

Hello Family (de sang re o de espiritu),

This week was a pretty good week. We didn't teach as many lessons but we had a lot of investigators that came to church. We were also able to set two baptismal dates, now we have 4. The best part is we have at least one in every ward or branch that we cover. We are planning on having a baptismal service the last 3 weeks in March.

We have been visiting with Cornelio. His family(Cornelio, su esposa, y sus cuatro ninos(3 ninas (11 anos, 3 anos, 1 anos) y 1(4 anos) nino)) came to church this last week and despite the less then inspirational lesson in Sunday school, which was a training on family history work, none of which was understood by Cornelio and his wife, they really enjoyed going to church and are really progressing well. We set a baptismal date with Cornelio and hopefully his wife and 11 year old daughter will want to get baptized as well. This last week we really did a lot of Spanish work, which is awesome.

We had 3 investigators come to church in all of the units that we cover as well. Overall everything is going well. We are really trying our very best to keep up the good work. Despite some seemingly non productive days. We have really been blessed in many other ways. Yesterday we got to track a whole trailer park of about 40 trailers, and every opened door was a Hispanic family, so we got a lot of good potentials to visit on another occasion. Hopefully good things come from them.

I asked Elder Paxton how the rising gas prices are affecting their missionary work...

The way that the church controls the gas usage is they give us a limited number of miles that we can drive in the month. They pay for gas with a gas card that every car has, and we log our miles everyday. Sometimes we feel like the mileage puts a restriction on the work because we can't drive to all the places we would like, as often as we would like, but it is for a good cause.
It is time to go to Caldwell and play some real indoor soccer which should be fun. Thank you for all of the support and love that I receive!
