Lots of teaching this week

Hello All,
So this week has been awesome. but I will tell you more about that throughout the week.
On Monday nothing really happened and we tried to go see some people so that was it.
On Tuesday we had a better day, we went to go see some former investigators named Bill and Mary, and I turns out that Bill had actually died. And that wasn't in the area book. So we set an appointment for a later time with Mary.
On Wednesday was exchanges and I went with Elder Cox again, and Pretty much all of our appointments fell through but we were able to get another investigator while tracting, his name is Manuel and he is about 16 and we did splits which is awesome. And on the other end, Elder McDonald got us another investigator with Elder McDaniel. Her name is Leslie, and we have been trying to teach her a lesson for like 2 weeks now and they were able to.
On Thursday we had our crazy day. We had the privilege of going to a service to the Homeless in Antioch and that was really cool. I got to work by passing out food to people who wanted it during breakfast and Lunch, and that service was really cool because not only was it 9 hrs. long. we got to help a ton of people who didn't have homes. The entire zone was there so there were a lot of missionaries at this service. I remember that one of the elders got interviewed by a news program of some kind and then that night we were pretty much packed. We had a lesson with the Crookstons and then a dinner, then a lesson with Tara(she has been thinking more about baptism), and then coordination with Brentwood 2nd ward.
On Friday we got do a ton of weekly planning, but we also had a great lesson with Trina, our investigator in Marsh Creek who has been really hard to get a hold of. And that was good so our lesson goal was really good.
On Saturday we had a lesson with Mary, but it turned out to be a talk with her sharing some stories of hers. She feels like God has done so much good to her where she is at that she wants to stay there so we may visit her every once in a while but she won't really be an investigator. She is really nice though. Super Christlike
On Sunday we had a cool day, after church we went to go see a less active named Katherine Grey and she wants to come to church again, she is old but she is well enough to come to church. Her daughter also wants to come again and she has a son named Julian that is 10 and not baptized yet. then we had another lesson with Tara and talked to her. She said that when her husband comes to a ward activity or to church then she will be baptized. So that is exciting. And then we had a lesson with somebody named Patrick and added him as an investigator.
So this week we taught a ton of lessons, had a huge service, and got 3 new investigators. So this week was super awesome.
