Missionary work is like a roller coaster. There are some really high "high"s and not very low "low"s when you look at the big picture of things; unlike a rollar coster missionary work is on a general upwards path. There are a couple of people in our ward that have are preparing themselves to be baptized. It was just a matter of time before these couple of people got baptized.
Here's a talk Joshua can read: "An Appeal to Prospective Elders" ~ Boyd K. Packer. I might have mentioned this before, but there is also a talk that Elder Scott gave that I'm going to send home towards the end of my mission that I want Joshua to watch and take with him on his mission (if he leaves before I get home) after you make a copy of it on my/any computer. My mission president said it's "really hard" to get a hold of (in other words, you won't be able to find one) but I requested a copy and so he's going to make a copy for everybody to have one.

Saturday it rained all the day long. It's the most I've been out in the rain for a while. This past week there also there was a tornado warning. I've had two of them since I've been here. The one last week shouldn't have even counted as one, but the first one I remember it being pretty windy.
