Elder Siebers!

Our new companion is named Elder Siebers and he is amazing! He is 19,
went to BYU for a year before his mission, is from Michigan, and might
be one of the funniest people I know! He is so happy all the time and
it is just contagious to everyone. This past week has just been
constant laughter and constant awesomeness.

Well except for the fact that every single one of our appointments
canceled. Every single one of our solid investigators (except the
Chantaka family) that were progressing have gone totally missing in
action since last Tuesday. So that hasn't been the greatest way to
start off poor Elder Siebers' mission, but we are making the best of
it. That man has no fear when it comes to talking to strangers! Elder
Taunauta and I are very lucky to have him as our companion.

Ruben and Blanca got their marriage license today! They are scheduled
to get married and baptized this Saturday! Please pray for them
because everything in their lives has seemed to go wrong recently.

This past Saturday there was an activity where the young women were
selling tacos to raise money for girls camp, and they had a talent
show to go with it. The young men made a boy band called "Out of Sync"
and asked us to be their bodyguards as they came walking in. We got
some good laughs from that. I will try to send pictures next week.

I love you all! I can't believe that I'm almost at the 23 month mark!
What the what!? Thank you for all of your prayers!
