This week has been great, but tiring, as usual. We didn't get baptisms or anything, but the other elders had a baptism. We were supposed to have the interview Friday night, but he didn't show up, and we couldn't get a hold of him. Saturday, his friend called the elders and asked, "Do you want to speak with him?" So clearly they did. We met them in the church, taught the last lesson, then immediately after, had the interview. About 2 hours after that, we had his baptism. :) It was a fun, long day. We ended up spending about 4 hours in the church for that, but it was worth it. :) 

Transfers were this weekend and nearly all of us stayed here.  We have four in this house. From what Sister Jeffers told me, was, as of last Friday, we were all staying here. But last minute, President transferred Elder Darrington up north.  I will receive my companion this Thursday, Elder Sanderson (from what I know).  It's going to be three straight transfers that I have trained. Maybe this time I will do it right.

Nothing really big happened this week other than on April 1st we had a zone meeting. Before it started we all decided at 12:00 we would stand up and walk outside, no matter what we were doing, and to not say anything. Well the zone leaders put on a show for us during the announcements like they were getting pretty mad at each other, they did a great job, but it was "April Fools." We caught it easy. Anyway, so at 12:00 exactly we were supposed to separate into groups to do these practices, or the role plays, right, and exactly at that time, we all stood up and walked outside. It was the funniest thing ever. I loved it. :)  ~ April Fools ~

After the Zone Meeting the two zone leaders came to our area and we did a division. Elder Madsen came in six weeks before I did and he is from Spanish Fork. He went to Dixie for some school before the mission. He is awesome. I got the privlige to be his companion for the division. He is an amazing missionary. 

We watched all sessions of conference except the last one because we had to be home before 10:00. I was having a hard time taking notes so I didn't get to choose a favorite but a lot of them talked about families. I wonder how many missionaries got "trunky" at this conference. :) 

Thanks for everything. Everything is great here. Love you all.
