We invited both of them to quit smoking, and they dropped it the next day

Elder Dunlap and I have been tearing it up here in Kearns. He has been in the spanish assignment his whole mission, so he is getting used to teaching english, and dealing with the problems that come in the english assignement. We have had lots of really great lessons with our investigators and the all seem to be getting ready for baptism really quick. Raymundo Jalapa will be having his baptism this saturday right after general conference. He will be such a strong convert. We have several others investigators that are working really hard for it. We picked up Sarah Schiermeyer, who has had a really tough past, but is getting married to a less-active member of the church. We invited both of them to quit smoking, and they dropped it the next day. They have been a little bit on edge during our visits since then, but they say it's been getting easier. He's working for the priesthood now, and then he will perform the baptism! It's exciting.
Both Elder Dunlap and I will be attending the sunday afternoon session of general conference this weekend. I'm always way excited for conference and to listen to the prophets message. It'll be my last one in the field. But, we can start working without our suit coats after its over!!! Freedom!!
love you all,
Elder Wright
