This week has been kinda slow, so I will just share some of the highlights.

On Tuesday we had a man call us and said that he had talked to the Sister missionaries at the Independence Visitor's Center and they had given him our phone number. He was interested in our family history resources and wanted to know how to access them. So we told him that we have a family history center at the church building. They went and had a very good time and were very impressed by the church. We set up a time to go see him on Wednesday. We got to know them and invited them to learn more about what we believe and the restored gospel, but they were not interested in learning more. 

We had lunch with this lady from our ward who is 91 and still teaches music at her home. I got to play on a 110+ year old piano and she had a darbuka and a set of bongos and she taught us how to play the Spanish guitar, so that was super cool.

One of the investigators Elder Peterson taught up in Atchison was getting baptized this week so we were able to see that. It was really cool. It is just a branch up there so their baptismal font is a portable one and is basically a waist high 5x5 pool.

Then of course conference happened and it was amazing. We just watched it at the church building, but because we have a deaf family in our ward it was all on the ASL channel - which was very different. I definitely learned a lot more about sign language than I thought I would from conference.

Anyway that was my week. Thank you all for your support. You guys are awesome - thank you!
