Hey yall
This weed was a pretty good one. I would say that it wasnt near as good as last week, but it was still good. We are still teaching that investigator and she is still so ready. We also have gotten a few other investigators. Right now they arnt to serious, but they just want to know more, but its still great, and i am still super excited to teach them. This week we also had a activity at a members house, and it was a lot of fun. We had over 70 people there. Which is like double what normally is at church. so that was really good to see all those people. Then on Sunday we had the Primary program. Me and Elder Whitby had to be a part of it because there are not a lot of primary kids. It went pretty good. We all had a lot of fun with it, then the primary president fed us during 3rd hour of church so that was really good. But ya that was the main points of my week. So i love yall
love Elder Sorensen

So this week was a pretty good week. I don't know if yall remember me talking about That investigator that came to church last week, well we started teaching her on Tuesday, and the lesson went great. We actually taught a full lesson and it went great. That is not the best part though. We set a Baptism date for her and her 9 year old daughter. I am so Pumped. We have also been getting in to teach more since then, and we have 6 investigators. There is only two or 3 that are solid ones, but there are investigators none the less. On Saturday it was Transfer calls, and I found out that both me and Elder Whitby are Staying in Fort Scott for another transfer. So we will be companions in Fort Scott until December 3. I am actually excited for that because if I would have been transferred our I would have missed the investigators baptism. I am so excited. The thought I just want to leave yall with is that even though things are bad at times, and it seems like there is no good that will ever come out of it there is always light at the end of the tunnel. That is what Fort Scott has taught me. I honestly hated this area when I first got here, but now I am really starting to love the people, and it really helps that we are starting to have people to teach. I just want to say sorry for not really having spiritual thoughts. I always forget to share one, and I never think about it until its to late, and also I want to apologize for not sending letter back lately. I get them in the mail and think ok ill write them back later, then later comes and I totally space it. so Please forgive me, and I will work on it. I love yall have a great week

This past week was a crazy week. On Monday we were in Joplin playing basketball and we played some rugby it was so much fun, then we stayed over there because Elder Whitby had to be in Bentonville in the Morning. So we went on Exchanges and I Was in Joplin with Elder Burkhart. We mostly passed along thank you cards,  we tried by some referrals, but none of them were home. We ended staying the night over there again. On Wednesday we had district meeting, so we drove from Joplin to there, and had a really great meeting. Then we went on exchanges with the Parsons elders, and Elder Perron came up to Fort Scott with me. We visited all the people that we handed out book of Mormons to and we set up some return apointments. The cool part of that day is we gave a blessing to this non members son who just got diagnosed with autisum. it was such an amazing experience. Then We exchanged back on Thursday, and I was so exchasuted because I haddent slept very well all week and I took a 4 hour nap. Elder Whitby thought I died, but after I woke up we went to our potentials named Tina and Ernie. The took the lesson, and actually liked what they heard, and now we have another appointment with them on Thursday. That wasn't even the best part of my week. On Sunday a member brought a friend to church, and she said that she had all intentions of joining this church. She signed up on the dinner callander to feed us, and she is starting the lessons tomorrow so I am so pumped for that. I am so excited for this coming week. I Love you all

So i really had an amazing week. on monday we had an less active invite us to the Fort Scott Comunity Volley ball game. and we had no plans so we went and i caught a t shirt so thats exciting, but the best part was is that we talked to the lady next to us, and she was so interested. the bad news is she didnt live in fort scott, but we did give a referel to the area where she lived. Then we didnt have a whole lot going until conferance. I dont know about yall, but i loved conferance. it seriously was so amazing. i feel so silly for not paying more attention to it when i was younger. It was such an amazing experiance, because while i was listing i asked Elder Whitby a Question, and the very next speaker answered it in his talk. it was so amazing to have that happen. i invite all of you to re read over the talks and ask questions before you do. i know it will change your lives well thats all i have this week love you
Love Elder Sorensen
