Family, All is well here in Newton, Kansas. Surprisingly we have had a nice little cold snap so it has been really cool and only getting up to like the 80s. So it has been really awesome. So much better when it is cool. Although that also means that suit jacket season for us starts soon with general conference coming up. Hope it stays cool during that. This past week has been pretty good. Up and down. Elder Haws messed up his neck so we had to go to the doctor and everything and he has been resting it for a couple days. So that took us out of commission for a day or two so we are starting to move into gear more the past couple days. Should be all good here in a few days. Week went good otherwise. I had my first baptismal interview on Friday and that went really well. The guy was baptized all good and everything so that was exciting for the sisters that taught him. Yesterday, Sunday, we had 2 of our former investigators come to church to our surprise. We were able to talk to them and see what got them to just get up and come to church and everything. They have had serious trials and everything the past month or so so they are looking for understanding and wanting to increase their faith by coming to church. Both expressed their desire to have us meet with them again and they have awesome fellowship. We were also able to give them both blessings at their request. They were really looking to learn more and they are showing it by their actions. So, I was really happy about that. We also got to go thru a lot of spanish and all that. I have noticed my spanish has been getting better. I gave the closing prayer in sacrament yesterday and the whole time I wanted to speak in spanish so I had to translate (in my head) all I wanted to say from spanish to english. I have noticed that I have been more comfortable in speaking and teaching in spanish then in english. Rather interesting. I think that is a good thing though. We are looking forward to this coming week to work hard. All is good otherwise. Thanks for all the love and support. Love Elder Roe
