 Letter from April 7, 2014
 Hey Mom,

Work is picking up and we are gathering a bigger teaching pool. We have been averaging about 18 lessons a week and we are totally blowing up in the area right now. My goal is to leave behind a lot of good things to work with before I leave because I have been here for almost 6 months and it's kind of a given that I will be getting transferred after this. So, before I leave, I want to leave behind a teaching pool so that my companion and whoever comes here will have a lot to work with. I don't want them to have to suffer and push to find people to teach like I did. 
Ezekial is progressing pretty slowly. It's been hard to get a sit-down appointment with him. In my opinion, you're either interested or you're not. Ughhhh.....after missing 4 appointments, not including [General] Conference... I've dropped investigators for less. This is an urgent gospel. My zl's think I should've dropped him a LONG time ago. I'M STILL TRYING TO FIND ONE LIKE YOU, MOM!! [Elder Sierra's mom was baptized 10 days after meeting the missionaries.]
I am happy to hear Benjamin is doing quite a lot and being proactive... I can't wait to see him perform when I get home. It'll be interesting; for once, I get to sit in the audience and just observe.  Love you!

Elder Sierra
