Pittsburgh Week 13

So as you already know, Elder Hurley and I are staying here in south side and we got a new addition to the group! His name is Elder Ryan Shipp from Salt Lake City! He's pretty awesome. He's been out just 4.5 months, and doesn't speak Spanish. We thought we would be getting a Spanish speaker here joining us, but I guess not. He's a really fantastic missionary, and he really knows how to work, which is a total relief. I was so happy that night when we went out to work together for the first time as a tripanionship and found that he was trained right, as a missionary. I think that together we'll be a great influence on the other companion. I'm happy to have him here in the companionship. 

We had a lot of great quality finding time in which we were able to teach a lot of lessons and find lots of people to get down as potential investigators or set up return appointments with them. Our investigator Baily was out of town this past weekend and so she wasn't able to attend church here so we have decided however that we are going to push back her baptismal date and reset her with one. She is progressing very nicely and she is still very excited about the gospel. We have yet to find new investigators that are really solid. We are currently in a finding stage right now. Nothing too exciting happened this week. The only big thing was the addition of Elder Shipp which is awesome. The work in South side is doing great and started to pick up.

Anyway I'll close for now, Thanks for all the love you send to me and the support! It is very much appreciated.
