Elliot's February 6 email and pictures

Here's the latest email from Elliot, with several new pictures after the jump.

It's been a sweet week. Everything just seems to be falling into place. We had 9 new investigators and set baptismal dates with 3 of them. Members have been introducing us to their friends, people are coming to church, and everything's just going really smooth.

My birthday was super fun! I woke up to all of my roommates singing happy birthday, didn't eat because it was fast Sunday, went to church, went to a baptismal service for a couple of guys that are in the Spanish Branch, visited with Jan and the Holdaways, ate dinner at Sister Brown's house (breakfast for dinner, aw yeah) and then taught Angel, one of our investigators who has a baptismal date, which was sweet. At night I celebrated with the roommates by eating brownies that Sarah sent me [Sarah Kron, one of our favorite blog followers!]. It was a very cool birthday. Today's Elder Karl's b-day and we kicked it off by going mtb riding at Stanley Draper again [a repeat of last week's p-day activity]. There were some sweet jumps and stuff. We got some good videos. I'm pretty sure just about everyone who went crashed at one point or another, but everyone's good. Elder Karl taco-ed his front wheel pretty good though. Next we're off to Bricktown to see the sights and stuff. It should be sweet!

Love ya!
