Dear Family,

Well this last week has been pretty good. We have been out working as much as we can and trying to find those who are being prepared. We also had interviews with Pres. Gustafson this last week. During the interviews the AP`s had a training which was great. Elder Poole and I applied the stuff that they taught us and one day half of the people we talked to actually stopped and listened to a gospel message. Some of the other missionaries in our zone had similar experiences. 

The Branch here is also trying to think of ways to help us find more investigators. We have a few great investigators we're still working with. One has a hard time understanding but he feels like this is something he should believe in. Another wants to be baptized but her parents are against it so she is just waiting until she moves out. Then we have a family that says they have changed so much since meeting the missionaries. They said that the missionaries always bring this wonderful feeling and that this is the best church but that they don`t want to change right now. Everyone seems to have something that is holding them back but we are going to keep working with them and do our best to help them. Heavenly Father knows their needs and he has provided a way for them. I hope that we can work with the Spirit to help them see the way. 

Well that was the sum up for last week. I`m still enjoying mission life and love serving the Lord. I love you all so much and am grateful for your prayers.

Love, Elder Joseph Gandy
