Something I have realized is you can't make people do things. You can only be an example and invite them to change. We're working on lifting the mission. we set a goal to baptize 5 this transfer. We have 4 more weeks to do it. We'd better get to it.

The weather is a consant Gloom. 40 and Rain. Imagine living in a place where everything is always wet. There are places with permanant puddles. Were just trying to find more people to baptize. President felt ispired the 2 weeks ago to come and tell us were working too much in our own area and neglecting the companionships in the zone. So were gonna start helping everyone else. We are having so much success in our ward this transfer, they brought in 2 new missionaries. So now we are a 4 pack and in the Apartment and in the Ward. Elder Kordiesmann and Elder Why. Why is from Australia and and Kordiesmann is from Utah. This is their 2nd and 4th month out. So they are very young. But willing to Learn how to baptize. Im steadily trying to figure out how to baptize 1000 people before I go home. Because that goal seems unreasonable Im determined to Find and Baptize 1000 people b4 I die. I would encourage you to set a goal of how many you plan to baptize this year. Will you pray and ask the Lord to bless you with someone who is ready to recieve the Gospel. Will you set a date so you can exersise your Faith in our Hevenly Father and draw down the powers of Heaven?

(This is delayed due to travels.) I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas call with Brandt. He sounds good and more mature spiritually. He's in Granite Falls. Except for the first few weeks, he has spent the entire mission in one stake. He said that they have more baptisms on the horizon (4). His companion is from Orem. They have a lot of dinner appointments. He works primarily with the ward and stake leadership to find investigators, and it is working well. The work is going so well that they are going to divide his area in half and make his house a four-pack. He lives in a town house.
