hello everyone,
     well another week has gone by here on my mission. today is tuesday the reason why i am sending a email today is cause it was MLK jr day yesturday and all of the libarys was closed. well it snowed last week and i mean it snowed so we got over 6 inches of snow in 2 days but now today it is melting cause it rained all night last night so we can see the green glass underneath the snow. so right now we dont have that much snow on the ground anymore. thats good that eric is liking his job that he has but he will get used to being on his feet cause thats what i did all the time when i was working at broulims i was on my feet all the time and all day long. well we are on trade offs right now i am down here in Grand Vally with Elder Meng and elder Kohler is up in Greenville with elder Robles. we went up to Greenville yesturday to hang out with them and played games cause it was are P-day we traded off last night and we are going to trade back wedensday at distrect meeting. thats cool that brenner, tyler and derek all stoped by and you guys all talked for 30 mins or so thats good that they stoped by. was you glad that they stoped by?
     we had a baptism over the weekend and it was Kimberly's baptism and she was way excited for her baptism. her friend form utah was here for the baptism as well and we asked him if he could bare his testimoney about the church and he also asked us if he could sing a song and we was like ya sure and so he did. and the baptism went really good. and get this we went to go and fell the font up with hot water and well their was not that much hot water so it was really cold and elder Kohler was the one that got to baptise her. she told us that she was not worryed about the cold water but then when she got into the water she was like "burrrr it is cold" and the grand rapids elders was their and they also had a baptism that day but later on that day. but their is some bad news tho now that she is baptized we have to hand her off to the grand rapids elders cause she lives in the grand rapids ward now cause thats why her parents live and she is living with them. one set of the grand rapids elders lives just down the street from where kimberly's parents lives. but this was funny when the grand rapids elders told us that they went and door knocked on the same street that she lives on kimberly's dad answered the door and said that they are baptised but this was 4 months ago to before we was meeting with her at mickyd's. so i thought that was funny when they told us that. and kimberly told them that if she had answered the door she would of told them that she didnt want to hear the message of what we had to tell her but a month later she came to church and now look at kimberly she is baptized a member of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. then on sunday she was comfirmed a member and her daughter came and her daughter is 16 years old. then later that night she called us and we was talking with her over the phone. while we was talking i asked her how her daughter like the church and kimberly said that she loved it some of the young women came up to her and talked to kimberly's daughter. Kimberly told us that and we was like cool and now she wants to learn more about the church but we wont be able to teach her cause they live out of are area o well  the grand rapids elders can teach her.
     well we had traning last thursday over in Lansing and their was 2 people from the MTC their and gave us good stuff to learn about. we left the Grand Rapids stake center at 7:30 in the morning and then we didnt get back tell 6:45 and then we had to hurry back to are apartment cause are dinner apointment was picking us up to take us out to dinner and then he was going to go with us to an apointment after that. so we didnt get home tell after 9 and we was tried but it was a good and learning day. well we found something out last week about George(one of are investigators) he has to get married i dont know if i told you that or not but now he knows why he has to get married in order to get baptised. so he told us that they are planning on getting married anyway but they are waiting on a few things to get here then they are going to get married then he will be able to get baptized. but other then that are week went good it was a good week. and this next week we have a few apointments distrect meeting here in Grand Rapids. then on Friday we will be getting a call ether from the Zone leaders or from the mission president about transfer. we are hoping from the Zone leaders saying that we are staying together. and if we do stay together most likey we will tell the end of his mission. so thats all for now hope to hear from everyone soon love ya.
elder Webster
