 AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! They finally got a kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell Scott and Tracy I said congratulations!! That'S SO GOOD!!!!!!!! I'm so glad things finally worked out! Other home stuff sounds good too. Winter sounds pretty ok this year. 

Sorry I forgot to tell you this week is our temple day:/ oh well. 

Anyway, things are going really good right now. I'll tell you a bit about Ivan too. I first found him on the street when Elder Arrington was off talking to another person. I just went up to him as he was walking and said hi, talked about how I was a missionary and something about English class. The whole conversation was like 40 seconds, neither of us really remember what I said except for something about English class. After that I scheduled him to meet us at a park where I taught him the whole restoration cause I sat next to him and Elder Arrington and the member we brought were sitting too far away. It was one of the more awkward lessons I've had so far. All he did was just sit there and listen. He hardly talked and he wouldn't  really look at us. It was weird. We didn't meet with him for a while after that, just called and texted a bit about the Book of Mormon, which he seemed to like. Once Elder Arrington moved and Elder Van Orman came in, we were able to get him to English class and after we read the first chapter of the BoM with him to show him how it applies to him more, he really seemed to like it. He also saw Salad at eng. class too. Apparently they were classmates in primary school. Btw, Salad was pretty much a recent convert by then, just not quite baptized. So Salad fellowshipped him a bit and we were able to get to teach him some more and get him to church. His first time at church was Nephews baptism, so that was really cool that he got to see that. He also got to see Salads baptism too. He took getting baptized really seriously, so he wouldn't accept a date for a while, but he finally did decide to get baptized when we taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. He started out so shy, now he's progressively just gotten so golden! His baptismal interview is this week! also he's 15 and he got his parents permission so everything is good! He's getting baptized on 
his 16th birthday!
 Thing are going good up here, can't complain besides testing is going on right now, super mafaan to schedule students. Ugh. School is evil here, well, eviler. Other than that, things are going pretty good. Hopefully home stays good fer yallls too:) that's about it this week, the work is moving on and we're working hard.
