Week 8 - Post Falls, Idaho
This week has been great! I feel like I'm adjusting a lot better and getting used to the schedule.  I have had so much fun with my companion and the two other missionaries we live with. 

The most exciting thing that happened this week is...one of our investigators is getting baptized!!! And it’s on March 29!!! First baptism on my birthday, I'm so excited!! His name is Levi and he's 14 years old.  He is the nicest boy ever!  He just moved here to live with his mom who is a member of the church and so he wanted to start meeting with the missionaries.  He has two older brothers who were baptized last year I think.  He said he wants his oldest brother to baptize him, so that will be really special for their family.  Their mom was so excited she started to cry. They are all awesome!
We went to this cute little old ladies apartment to meet her the other day, and on the way out we stopped and talked to another lady who was sitting on her porch alone.  When we told her we were missionaries, at first she acted like she didn't want to talk to us but we just kept talking to her. And then she talked our ears off!! We stood there for over an hour and she told us EVERYTHING about her and I don't think we got more than 20 words in in that whole hour and 1/2. But then at the end she told us that she was so impressed with us and our listening skills and that she wanted us to come back and learn more about our church.  And she said she wanted tell our bishop how impressed she was with his missionaries so that turned out really good.  We’re going back to meet with her on Wednesday. And she's a dog trainer!!!
Speaking of dogs, my love for dogs is slowly diminishing.  I'm not even kidding! Everyone has like 4 dogs here and I've hardly seen any cute ones! One family has a black lab puppy that I am in love with! He’s not as cute as Livee though. But there is one lady who has the most annoying dog I have ever met in my life.  Before I go in her house me and Sister Jeffery will literally pray that we can have patience with that dog.  It’s a tiny little thing and it is so needy! If we don't pet it 24/7 it will bark, growl, lick and scratch at us until we pet it! And then it makes it hard to concentrate on the lady we're supposed to be teaching because I just want to punch that dog! But she really loves him so much and she told us what a great friend he is to her, so then I feel bad for not liking it. I feel bad for this lady though.  Her name is Lilian and she has some health problems.  She is trying to stop smoking, which has been hard for her.  We visit her a lot and read scriptures with her that hopefully encourage her.
That’s all that really happened that's exciting this week! Sorry! I always feel bad when my letters are horrible, but I never have enough time to write everyone back.  I LOVE getting letters :)  I love and miss you guys!
