Escanaba is great! We live with members Sister Schmidt and her husband is the branch president. It's just a small little branch and the church building is super small it's actually pretty dang cute. Haha. Sister Schmidt is way too nice and her and a member named Tommy Chicago are who make Escanaba the best area in the mission. Tommy was baptized about ten years ago and he has no teeth but he is the funniest guy i have ever met. He takes us out to lunch or dinner a lot and takes us out of town a lot for like district meetings and stuff. His family is Catholic and his niece got baptized last week and we went with him to Catholic mass and the infant baptism and it was so awkward being there. They didn't have the spirit there at all. The investigators here are awesome. We just got dropped the other day by someone but we've been working with a lady since i got here and her baptismal date is next week on August 1st. She is so ready and getting so excited for it. It's been so amazing watching her life just take a huge turn. She has been so happy lately and she's been coming to church including last week when Elder Hofmeister and i gave a talk. It was good because i talked about the Book Of Mormon because we had 6 investigators at church so i picked something that would be best for them. I never thought i could actually give a talk for 23 minutes haha. Well that's what's new in Escanaba Michigan. PEACE!!!
