Hey everyone! Sorry I didn't send out an update last week,

Last Pday all of the missionaries going home in the next 6 months got
to go to Arlington as a group. It was really cool, we got to see
the changing of the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier and we
had a little devotional with the mission president. It was a really
nice experience.

A.- our recent convert is doing really well. We have been going through
the recent convert lessons with her and the visiting teachers. And this Sunday
she was called to be a relief society teacher. We are so excited for
My Birthday 

Celebrating mine and and Sister Bateman's Birthdays

L. is progressing really well right now, we found him tracting just a
few weeks ago, and it turns out his brother in law is an active member in
the branch. We have been teaching him the lessons with his brother in
law and he wants to come to church next week.

We got a referral and when we stopped by his house we found out that
he was looking for members from some other church we had never heard
of before. We tried to teach him but when he found out we were not
from his church he told us to never meet with him again and he went

We had the primary program and it was the first one our branch had
ever had. A.'s two boys were in it and it was really cute. The branch
is growing a lot and it has been fun to serve here.

Thanksgiving was great. We had a great lunch with a senior missionary
couple serving in Annapolis, and a dinner with some great families in
the ward!

Hey everyone!!

Hope everyone is having a good week.

This week was really fun for us! We found a lot of cool people and
some of them seem really interested. We found one guy while we were
tracting, and he told us to come back on Sunday night. When we came
back on Sunday, one of our members was there and we found out
that the new investigator was the brother in law of the member. We had
a really good lesson with them and the brother in law wants to keep
meeting with us. It was a great teaching experience.

A. is doing really well. She is loving church and is holding nightly
family prayer with her family, teaching her husband about the church,
and it is going awesome. She went with some ward members to the Navy
football game this last week and is having lots of fun.

We have been focusing on doing a lot of finding people, so we have been doing
a lot of contacting and we got some return appointments for
this week as well.

This week we also helped a less active family set up their Christmas tree!

Thanks for everything! Have a great week!!

Hey everyone!! I hope you all had a great Halloween! We had a pretty
good one here, and the two days after were the celebrations for the
Day of the Dead. A lot of people had their tables set up for Day of
the Dead and we got more bread people!

A. is doing really well, she loves church and the gospel. She just got
home teachers and they were able to go help giver her a blessing
after she hurt her back this week.

M. is progressing really well right now. She was never progressing much
before but we retaught her the restoration and she loved it. She has
been reading a lot of the Book of Mormon and really likes and
understands it. She came to church for the first time this last Sunday
and it went well, we hope she can come again soon.

We have been spending some time looking for new investigators. This
week we talked to a man in the parking lot and he was running really
late for work but pointed to his house and told us he really wanted us
to stop by because he used to meet with Mormons and wants to meet with
us. We met with him yesterday and he and his family were awesome and
we are going back later this week.

Today was our pday because we got to go to the temple! It was really
nice except for the hour drive!!

Thanks for Everything!
