It has been a good week. We are working with our investigators still but they have been difficult to meet with due to sickness or just very busy.
Austin has been very sick this week and we were unable to go a meet with him and it kept him from church as well. We are still very hopeful that his situation will change but until then we will continue to visit and strengthen him. We are trying to see if we can get some of the members out there to try and befriend him and his grandparents.
Meeting with Shanin this week was not the type of lesson I would prefer it to be and she missed church this week as well. She's been very busy with school and she's about to start drivers ed so we probably won't be able to meet with her for a couple weeks.
We had some improvement with the Washington's. We had a feeling to stop by the hospital and see if she went back there, because it has been so difficult to get in touch with the family. We were right and it turns out that she went back and had just barely been released the previous day for the second time. Hopefully this will help us get back in that home.
Josh Johnson came to church yesterday and it was just great. The ward really reached out and he's really trying to be better. Very excited to see what happens with him in the future. His date is currently for April 28th because of work. He's a great guy and were also able to work with him this week and his member in-laws. They needed some bricks moved so we went and helped with that.
The best tender mercy to hear about came from my old comp Elder Stevens. He called us and told us that Leonard Banks had been baptized. I taught him pretty much the whole time I was in E.Cleveland. Just a really great thing to hear about.
Love you all.
