A Little Late this week....

Surprise!  It's your weekly email!
I know it's a little late, but it's got a great story attached.
We went to the temple today.  We're now allowed to attend the temple once a quarter, on our P-day, so long as a member drives us.  But because the temple is closed on Monday, we get to change our P-day.  So this week, it's Friday.  (This also means that we get P-day again on Monday!)
We've still been working on finding new investigators, and helping them get to baptism.  So it's been pretty busy.  We had a ton of lessons fall through last week.  No one was ever home. 
On Saturday, the area presidency came to speak to all three Houston Missions.  It was a lot of fun, and they gave great talks.  I know I learned a lot!  That evening, the branch was having a baptism for an 8 year old member, so we spent most of the afternoon trying to get an investigator there.  He's been kinda sick, so we managed to get him to the church for a blessing from the elders, and then he just kinda hung around until the baptism.  Two other wards had baptisms that same time, so he saw a few people get baptized. 
This week has been a little bit better than last week, we've found a new investigator, and we've found a few more lessons. 
We went on exchanges yesterday, I got to stay here and have Hna. Kennedy with me. 
The last two weeks haven't been too exciting, sorry.  We just keep looking for people to teach.  We've got a few people that we've taught one or two times, but we've been having problems getting in touch with them, especially since everyone is home for only two hours everyday, and they are all at home at the same time, but we never manage to find anyone.  It's kinda frustrating.  But I know that the Lord has people for us to teach, we just have to go out and find them.
Well, I think that's it for now!
Talk to you soon!
Love, Amber
