Glad to hear things went well for Kate and it looks like she has a really nice place!!! [referring to Kate finding an apartment in NY]
Also nice to hear about a talk from someone from the Ward that I actually know! The Hursts have always been a great example for me.
I had a pretty busy week too. We decided to try and complete the 'nomas de excelencia' of the misión [standards of excellence 'of the mission], which basically means we were running like crazy people all week trying to teach enough lessons and find enough new investigators. We managed to reach the goals in every category except lessons with a member, where we were two lessons short. This week we're going to get there, don't you worry!!!
