As far as investigators, we've got one really really solid investigator. His name is Javier, and he's from Honduras. His son is actually a member, and so he'll come to church with him. He's basically a member already; just needs to hear all the lessons and accept a baptismal date. It's kinda funny- Javier looks like a Hispanic version of Brother Steadman. He works all week in New Jersey, so we can only meet with him on the weekends, but that's okay. We've been dropping a lot of people, so our area book right now is the smallest one I've ever seen. So, the name of the game right now is finding people to teach. It's great :)
So, another item of note is that Mother's Day is coming up soon, and that'll be a Skype day- my last in the mission! I'll talk to you more about coordinating the call when it gets closer, but I'm pretty excited.
I have to say thanks to Grandma and Grampa Hicken- they sent me a very generous sum of money for my birthday.
The largest stressor in my life at the moment is the fact that I can't go pick up a package that I know is waiting for me. It's just sitting on a shelf at the office. Our Zone Leaders dropped the ball as well, because they didn't bring any packages from the office to Zone Training Meeting. Oh well- I'll get it soon.
It's so crazy to me that Spencer's already going on dates and going to prom and all that. So weird!!! I'm old! Elder Pothier, my companion, graduated in 2015. I was on my mission when he was a Senior. How weird is that?! I hope Spencer has a great time, and you'll have to send me pictures!
Well, that's the update! Any questions?
