End of week 1 for transfer 4. (I've been out six months now?!?!?)

So, about Mattawa. Reynaldo didn't come to church this week, and we don't really understand why. We had 3 lessons with him this past week, and they were all really good. He's already got a testimony of the Gospel, and he wants to get baptized. He still has to get divorced to someone in Mexico, but he says he's already got that underway. We've got an appointment with him today, and will have to see what's up. One of our investigators, Crispin, and his family, didn't go to church because they slept in. And then decided to rearrange the house that day. We had to tell them, that we couldn't keep coming over if they didn't repent, or show that they were changing or doing anything. We're going to have to see how seriously they take us. They really like having us over, so we're not sure what they'll do. Gricelda, our on-date for baptism, didn't come, and she wants to get baptized still, but we're not really sure how serious she is about it... We told her that she has to go to church and get married, and she said she wants to do that, but she didn't truly seem sure of herself. We may have to change her date from the 27 of April. Emelia is a lady we met earlier this week. We'd actually met her quite a while back, but we couldn't go in because she is a single mom. We believe her husband passed away recently, and she has a 16 year old girl, and a little girl about 5 or 6. She was really interested when we finally were able to teach her, and so were her kids. The 16 year old's boyfriend seemed to think the lesson and the prayer was a pain, but hopefully she will dump him soon, once she sees the light of the Gospel. :) Hm. Maybe I shouldn't put things like that in my letters now that I think about it...

In other news, I love wearing short sleeve shirts! I wore one for the first time thursday, and it's the best. So freeing. We also celebrated Easter here, and that was pretty fun. Our Bishop's son got baptized on Saturday, and we got to attend that, so that was pretty cool. Also, if any of you get the chance, watch the Bible Video, "He is Risen". One of the best videos the church has ever done in my opinion. Hope you all remember Christ in your lives during this season!

Con amor,
Elder Grant
