Family and friends

I love you all so very much! It's been a great week, filled with a lot of miracles. It was great to teach so many lessons this week. They didn't all go through but most did. We taught Pam Sellner last Monday and she is so great. We talked about the Plan of Salvation and she really enjoyed it. We invited her to be baptized and she said she would be. She is so great. She owns a zoo and a dairy so she is amazingly busy. But we look forward to talking with her some more. 
On Monday night we taught the Cook family. Brother Cook was baptized pretty recently and we read a little from Alma. His wife isn't a member so we are looking forward to meeting with her. She just needs a push in the right direction. On Monday night we went and volunteered at the Methodist church here in town and helped at an event held every Sunday called Second Helpings. We dished up some food for everyone and it was great to see everyone happy and smiling and to knw that people are well taken care of in the Methodist faith. 
On Tuesday we were planning on seeing Jose and Jessica but they had to cancel because Jose was busy with the baby and Jessica was working down in Cedar Rapids. 
On Wednesday we taught Angel who is Lisa Sifrit's foster daughter. She accepted the invitation to be baptized but she legally can't be baptized until she is 18 and she just recently turned 17. So I won't be able to see her make that covenant. But hopefully some missionary down the road will be able to help her.
On Thursday we had our last District meeting as a district. So that was sad. But we did some exchanges with the Elders from Fayette. Elder MacDonald took Elder Bagshaw out to Independence and Elder Mortensen and I contacted some potential investigators in Manchester. 
On Friday we did some service for Brother Weber. Cutting down trees and chopping up the wood so that they can burn it. We got Jose out there and he was able to do some great work cutting. He cut wood every day for ten years back in Mexico so he knows what he is doing. 
Well that was pretty much our week! I've been learning so much about patience lately. Especially with myself and with investigators. I need to inquire the Lord and ask him what his timeline for all of the people we are teaching is. He is the only one that knows. I love you all so much! 
Big News! Elder MacDonald and I are staying together! 
Love Always,
Elder Wardle
