Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Hi! We have had a good week! I'm doing super good!

You guys take such good care of me! 

This week has been a good one! We had 4 investigators in church on Sunday! Which was super exciting!

Ramon, Anabel and Pamela. 
One of our favorite families! Ramon and Anabel have been investigating for years, and the only thing holding them back is a prior marriage in Mexico, but they're working on that. Pamela is their 8 year old daughter.  She's ready for baptism, but they are hoping to be baptized all together. We are praying that the issues will be taken care of quickly so they can get married and baptized soon. 

We have been teaching Yolanda for a while now, she has been to church like 6 weeks in a row, and she absolutely loves it! She has been fellowshiped by the ward and she loves the classes and she is ready to be baptized. We just have a few more things to teach her, and she should be ready to be baptized this month. We also have been teaching her daughter Alma, who is 18. She's super interested and has really loved what she has read in the Book of Mormon. She is doing an internship right now for the local hospital, so she hasn't been able to go to church, otherwise she would be preparing for baptism as well. 

We have found a lot of new people to teach this last week, which is awesome! We have also put a new focus on less active members, which is great for reactivation, but also helps us to find new people to teach! Because the people who have non-member friends are often less actives and recent converts! So we have been having a lot of success like that!

On Sunday night we had a Mission President's fireside, in San Diego which was a lot of fun! We got to sing a few songs and listen to the special musical numbers preformed by the missionaries. There is a lot of talent in our mission. Plus we got to hear from some recent converts and President and Sister Schmitt. The best part though was seeing all the Elders that I served with before. I saw Elder Carlson and Elder Browne (he sang). I also saw other elders from old Zones like Elder Stecklein and McChesney, who are both APs now, but I served with them in the Imperial Valley. Elder Stecklein was in my district and Elder McChesney was my ZL. plus others also. It was fun to see them! 

Have you heard anything new From Anna? She's so awesome! Her family is what I miss the most about Calexico By far!

Is there anything you guys need from me?

Love you!!!

Elder Hansen
