Hey Everyone, sorry about the late start today, but another good week has come and gone! 

We had some incredible progress with our main investigators including X who came to church once more this Sunday! Hes really enjoying it. He loves the members here too and feels loved each Sunday.  The church of Jesus Christ is a very fitting place for him and is helping him acquire a more optimistic lifestyle. 

Also Y finaly read from the Book of Mormon this week. She tells us how she has realy desire to read from the Book of Mormon just that she is a very lazy reader (I can relate!). However this week she struggled to sleep as her 4 year old daughter kept her awake all night. At 2 am she had the impulse to read for the first time and felt that if she read she would be able to sleep. She did just that. One verse that we had left for her 10 year old daughter actually, Mosiah 2:41 and she fell right to sleep afterwards. She was decided to come to church this week for the first time as well, but another long and sleepless night kept her sleeping in. But her oldest daughter  came and genuinely enjoyed church. Y is starting to see some good changes in her kids who some have been coming to church and all have read from the Book of Mormon, and we just are going to keep helping her get there herself. 

Lastly, we had Mission Tour this week, Elder Aidukaitus (spelling) of the Seventy gave a great training on how we can work with the members more effectively. 

No letters or boxes were delivered; We have one final chance but I should be getting the box this Wednesday, its the mission Christmas conference. 

Well I hope you all have a great week!

Elder Siebers
