Well, this week has been good and bad for us. 

First off, my companion got sick for 3 days and he wasn't able to leave the house. But since there are six of us in our house now, we were able to do splits every day and take turns staying home with him.  That way we were able to get out and visit our investigators. 

This week we have been blessed to be able to find a lot of new people to teach!!!  Finding people to accept the gospel is the best reward of being a missionary.   We were able to find and put baptism dates on six new people this week. And they all accepted the day, so I sure hope and pray they will follow through.

Yesterday we were at church and a young man showed up that has visited the church for awhile now.  He wanted to get baptised, but his mom and dad wouldn't let him. However, yesterday he told us his dad will let him, so we are excited to get to baptise him and am hoping it will all work out. 

The older people we have been teaching, the same guy with that bad drinking problem; his wife, yesterday when we went to their house, he was the only one there. You could see something was wrong and he told us that the lady he is living with was in the hospital because she almost couldn't breath anymore. But I called her last night and she is doing better and will maybe be released today. We are sure praying for all the people in our area this week.  

I know that through prayer and fasting Heavenly Father hears and helps us. I know through prayer we can talk to our Heavenly Father and he will help us with anything we need help with. 

I hope all you guys are doing well. Thanks for all the support. 

Gordon B Hinckley said, "Don't be gloomy.  Do not dwell on unkind things.  Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.  Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face.  Accentuate the positive.  Look a little deeper for the good.  Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart.  Love life.  

Talk to you guys later.

Much love, 
Elder Nickerson
