 "Retain HIS Name"
        This week was a pretty good week!  To start it off after P-day we went to Texas Roadhouse with 2 other companionship's and someone ended up paying for it.  Our waitress came up and said today is your lucky day, someone paid for your meal!  And then on Thursday 2 of our investigators accepted the invitation for baptism and now are on date.  One of them is Angel we asked him to pray about a date our last time that we were over there.  And when we went back on Thursday he said he prayed and felt he was ready.  And we said we been praying to and we feel you can be ready by May 24th. Then he said I was actually thinking May 10th and we were totally fine with that!  It was a Miracle, we've been teaching him for 5 months.  Then Karen, we had a lesson with her on Thursday as well, and we invited her to be baptized and she accepted.  She is on date for May 31st.  There were so many miracles this week!

  I will keep an eye out for Elder Irvine when does he come out?  My comp. is spanish speaking so I'll probably see him.

Thank you for sending the watch.  When did you send it?  How is Chaylee settling in?  When does she start school?

I just finished Mosiah. We are doing the 80 day Book of Mormon Challenge Mosiah and Alma are my favorites well the end of Alma when all the wars are going on:)  Well I guess all of it is good it always has good stuff to say.

 So how was everyones week?  We are gonna be pretty busy this week getting ready for these baptisms!  I'm sure time is gonna fly this week.  But also the week before peoples baptisms are always rough!  They always go through struggles that week so we have to like babysit them.  But it's all good I know how that goes.  The month I had to wait to put my papers in was a rough month!

Well thanks for all you do!  And for all the love and support!

 Transfer Week!!!!
  Yeah I am due for a change!  But I'm staying in the same area with the same comp.  This will be the 4th transfer of everything the same,  haha kinda weird!!  This week was good!  We have 3 Investigators that I believe will get baptized this transfer if not then in the near future haha.  Karen Sheckard, Angel Hernandez, and Sister Greenland I can't remember her first name, haha, thats why we call eachother Brother and Sister though right?  I also found out this week that Chases Cousin has been in my district for the past 5 months.  But he is getting transferred this week.  Houston Potts is his name.
  I had a good Easter went to Church, had dinner with a family, And then had 3 lessons so it was a pretty good day!   Phh Chaylee always has to one up me huh?  Well when I get home we are putting a pig on the Rotisserie!  So there Chaylee haha.  We watched that #becauseofhim Video like 10 times this week with Investigators and members It was always so powerful.  It helped me and them understand that because of Him we can start over again and again and again so that was an awesome video.  I liked how the music that went with it wasn't  MOTAB so that everyone can relate to it. 
  How did Maddie know which Easter basket was hers?  Sounds like you guys had a fun Easter!  And sounds like the Easter egg hunt was a hit!  I was off soda for 2 weeks then a member pulled out some Mountain Dew and I had to take it haha.
  We also had interviews with the Mission Pres. This week that was good!  Those are always good times!  I wish we could email twice a week I always forget what happened through out the week haha!
 I didn't get the package yet but I'm sure it will come today.  And yes I got Jeds letter and I wrote him back today!  Where are letters from everyone else?  Yeah it seems like he is doing pretty good!  He says he pays for all his stuff now how does he do that.  And he's a teenage boy he's never gonna get girls off his mind ha.  Its what we do!
 Well thanks for your email and the package that is coming.  Love you all!
