Another baptism ahead

Hey Everyone!

This is going to be a quite email as it is moves weeks, so technically P-day is wednesday, but I thought I could quickly email and let you all know how I am doing.

This week has been pretty good. We are beginning to see some progress with some of our investigators which is good. Chanai has a baptismal date for the 4th of May now. We are hoping that she will keep this one, as she is reading the scripture calendar that we gave her, and we don't see any immediate problems that would prevent her from doing so. We just have to make sure that she is getting baptised for her and not for her dad, which we will hopefully be able to determine this week.

We saw Christiana at the start of the week and she has actually started reading the Book of Mormon!!! This is like a big victory for me, even though she has only just started with 1 Nephi 1. we haven't been able to see her since though so I am not sure if she is still reading, and she wasn't at church yesterday. We will hopefully see her tomorrow though. Arthur is doing great though, he was at church yesterday which is good.

Our family from Equador dropped us this week sadly, but when one door closes another door opens as this week we found a nice family from Portugal, a mum and dad and two boys both over 8. When we found them they told us that, a few days before we knocked on their door they were just talking about bringing Jesus into their life. The mum Julianna and the boys, Gabriel and Rodrigo are all so excited and they are golden, and they would have come to church on sunday, but the dad doesn't seem too keen, and they didn't come because he didn't want to go. So that is a bit of a problem, but hopefully we will overcome that and be able to gain his trust and extend a date to them for the 18th of May.

Also, at church yesterday, the Woodley missionaries had two referrals for us that came to church. They are a mum and daughter from Poland who are in need of welfare, but they seem interested in the gospel as well, so we will be teaching them later this week. luckily we have a polish family in the ward that can help us with teaching as the mum's english isn't very good.

Well that is about it for this week I guess. Not much more to share.

So yeah, it is moves weeks. We will find out tomorrow if any of us are moving. If anything changes I will move but I hope not. I love Reading, it is an amazing ward and the work is going so well here! But we shall find out tomorrow. I will let you all know as soon as I can.

I hope you all have a good week.

I love you all!!!
Elder Mitchell
