So this week has been like a roller coaster and we have had some ups and downs. There are some weeks that people will reject everything you say and try to do and this week was one of those weeks.
Tuesday we had a district meeting and then tracted for practically the rest of the day until the Preach my Gospel class that night. At the PMG class we watched a church movie and had pizza. Wednesday we tracted for most of the day, but at lunch time we stopped by Subway to get our free sub for the week and one of the workers there said she wanted us to meet with her and her kids. We are really hoping that goes through. Thursday we studied, planned, tracted , had lunch and then set a date with T********. This is absolutely her last chance. We have been teaching her for 6 months now and we will set an appointment and she keeps blowing us off. She blew us off 2 times last week. Then we taught A****** at the church. She is doing so good. She asked me to baptize her on April 14, but I told her she should have Brother C******* from the ward baptize her, so that is what’s going to happen. It’s really exciting. Friday we tried to help a older lady who was mowing her lawn with an old push lawn mower with no motor. She had a cane too, but she told us no and that we could not help her. We then asked a lady that was washing her car if we could help her and she told us no and told us that she already had a church and then turned her back to us. It was a rough day tracting. Saturday we went with Elder and Sister Smith to visit some of the less active members and share an Easter message, then we went to a members house that had just had surgery. Sunday was a good day. Sacrament meeting was really good, then we went to the E****** for Easter dinner. That was really fun. Then Monday we just deep cleaned our house and we are just going to rest up. Tomorrow I am going to Jasper, which is about 2 hours away for an exchange. It should be interesting.
We do somewhat have a new investigator. She is part member in the ward, so that should be good. Then we are still trying to get back in contact with J********. In all, it has been a pretty decent week.
Thanks for all you do..
Love, Elder Anderson

Well this week we have been trying to teach A***** family, but her step dad is pretty set of being a Baptist and thinks you saved by grace and not by works. We have helped him build a room in his attic, but I don't think he will be going anywhere in the church. A***** is doing great though, she went to the temple last week so that was way good.
