Baptismal Invitation Accepted, Temple Date, Hopped up Easter Bunnies, and Zone Conference - 03-30-2015

Hey everyone! It's that time of the week again. Thanks for everyone and all you do. This week has been great! Probably one the of the better weeks of my mission because Elder Paul and I had a full schedule with many appointments that were with non members. Most of those appointments did fall through, but it is still was an improvement.

We started out the week on p-day playing soccer on the mall. It was a lot of fun, Elder Paul brought his GoPro so we got some cool footage of that. The National Mall is a really cool place to do that kind of stuff and I think that we are planning on doing something similar today.

Towards the beginning of the week we also were blessed to teach our investigator that we were able to pick up last week. We taught her the first lesson which is the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was a very spiritual lesson. At the end we gave her the baptismal invitation and she accepted. If everything goes according we will help prepare her and she will be baptized on April 26th.
We had a lesson with a resent convert and we talked all about the temple because she is going to the temple on Tuesday and she is very excited. She is the member that is going through some health problems. She has been battling cancer for quite some time now. I feel that going to the temple will help her immensely because the temple gives us power. She is going to the temple to receive her endowment and Elder Paul and I are able to go to support her this coming Tuesday.
The ward this week had an Easter party for the primary and the missionary's were there to help them out. I have never seen kids with so much energy, and that was before the sugar. After the sugar it was nightmare. They were bouncing off the walls like little Easter bunnies, it was pretty funny.

This week was also our zone conference were we learned all about how to use our iPads better and also how to use our key indicators which was really helpful. The conference was done really well and it was very beneficial for everyone there.
Something less important but pretty awesome, I bought a GoPro so I will be able to send footage of our p-day activities and videos of us biking around our area. I'm really excited about it. It should be great.
Some other updates I got my permanent crown on so I do not have to go back to the dentist until September for a check up that they want to do. The weather is heating up here, it reached 80 degrees this week. And also the transfer is half way over.

Thanks for the emails from everyone I really do enjoy reading them and hearing how everything is going. Tell next week this is Elder Johnson singing out.
