The week the age limit for Missions was lowered

Well, our recent e-mail from President Hall showed us some pretty cool statistics! Before general conference the average for missionary applications per week had been averaging 300 per week. There were 4,500 the first week after General Conference - WOW!

Palmdale is still great. I love this ward. The people are super nice and really helpful. It's easy to get members to come with us to lessons, and the youth are super awesome! A bunch of them want to go on missions in a year or two so they give us lots of referrals and come out with us to teach.

The work is good. This week's been kind of weird. We taught a lot of lessons, just not with the people we've been trying to focus on.

Our best investigator is Rosa, her daughter Katie and niece Olivia. Rosa was confirmed a member my first week here and Katie and Olivia are going to get baptized sometime in November. They are super awesome.

That's my week. Today, we will play basketball for a few hours, then Elder Reed and I are going to play tennis on the court in our apartment complex then play indoor soccer. Later we have a few appointments.

Have a good week everyone and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Elder Ellsworth
