Last week we went to Reno. Reno was sweet. We went to the temple and did baptisms and I got my jeans at Banana for $35!!! They are great too. That made me happy. We also got our key fob programmed so that works now and then went to Scheels – the coolest place ever! They have everything! From frizbee golf stuff to skis to badmitten to every kind of shoe. Its like Dick’s on steroids. So sweet. We had a chill time.

Went to Fernley a whole bunch. We had some super good lessons, but getting people to come to Fallon is almost impossible, so we will be starting a Spanish-speaking group there in 3 weeks so that our 7-10 investigators there can go to church. We are teaching this new family in Fernley – Laura y Arturo. They are super cool. They live in a very very small trailer, but she keeps it super super clean and nice. I like them a lot and you can feel their spirit pretty well. I think they are going to keep the commitments we give them. A lot of potential with them. Then at the end of the lesson Laura told us that her parents and 7 sister and their families all live in Fernley too and probably would be interested in our message too! Crazy! That might end up being the beginnings of a branch by itself.

We also did some work with less active work members of the Church here in Fallon. We had a sweet Sacrament meeting on Sunday. It started out terrible. Nobody was there that told us they would come to church and nobody was getting up to bear their testimonies, but then one family we had worked with the day before showed up and then another! One part-less-active/part-non-member and the other entirely non-member. There was a pause for 30 more seconds and then somebody got up to bear his testimony and it wasn’t quiet after that at all. AND the testimonies were actually DECENT! Yeaaaaa!

The week before, I spoke in Spanish in sacrament meeting. I heard it was pretty good. I think it went pretty well. I did half of it just straight off my writing and half without any writing at all. It ended up being kind of fun.
