"So we have one new investigator. It is so hard to find people to teach, but we are having a lot of fun with it!"

"That's so cool Asa and Sam went to prom! (Asa is Cole's younger brother) I'm glad they went with Kara's (family friend) little sister and her friend that's so cool!!"

This is the only new pic sent this week.

"....And that's really cool that Jesse had her baby! There are going to be so many new babies to see when I get home!" Cole is really liking the word cool this week! :) 

So Elder Grace thought he had sent many new pictures, but all I received is what I have posted. I hope I will receive the rest next week!

Elder Grace's 1st time Baptizing!

Elder Grace has now had his very 1st baptism! His past companions or ward members have done the previous baptisms! How exciting for Elder Grace!!! This is his 4th baptism so far!

Elder Grace and a little boy ready for baptism.

Cole did not tell me this little boy's name so I will have to find out next week when I get a new email from Cole.

Some words from Elder Grace:
"It rained for 3 days straight last week it was so crazy!"

"I finally got a letter from Andrew!"

"That's crazy that Kimball got his mission call, so many people are going on missions that's crazy!"

So yes things are always so "crazy" to elder Grace! :)

"I cant believe Kaylee is already back from her mission! (Cole's cousin) that's crazy!"

Elder Grace is doing so well! He really likes his companion Elder Wunderli too! He also says that Elder Wunderli's dad is the president of Ogio and he sent Cole a new back pack, that's so cool!!!!

"Elder Wunderli and I get along great!"

"Frisbee golf was really fun last week, but it was hot and humid."

So I am so impressed with how good Cole is doing. I am so glad that he is surrounded by so many great people on his mission! I know he is making great relationships with companions and the people that he teaches and the people in his wards he gets to attend!

It is so nice to know the church is true and that there are so many great missionaries and ward mission leaders and great mission presidents and great ward members who all help in teaching the gospel!

Wow Elder Grace! :)

Look at this nice Ferrari Cole found! If you look really close you can see Cole's reflection on the back of the Ferrari.
Cole's dream car he has always been fascinated with Ferraris!

"I will stay in Edwardsville but my companion Elder Sutherland will be transferred to St. Louis on Wednesday."

"I have a baptism coming up this Saturday." (April 13, 2013)

Here is another view of this lovely car.

So today is another p day for Elder Grace he says that he will be playing Frisbee golf today. I hope it is a nice day!

So everything seems so "crazy" to Cole these days!!!! ha,ha,ha,....Here are some of his responses to some new news with his family:

"That's so crazy that Aunt Summer and Uncle Jared and family are moving to Michigan! I kinda figured they would have to move for Aunt Summers residency....but for 3 years, that's crazy!"

"Wow that's crazy that Uncle Brandon and Aunt Sophia are having another baby! It will be weird to come home to a new cousin!"
