Being the forgetful person that i am, i neglected to mention that we had one more investigator. "Had" being applicable still because he is a MEMBER now. so sit down, and I will tell you the story of Ricky.
We met Ricky on the 4th, right before general conference. He told us his story (for the first of about 15 times), and it goes like this: He was not the best person in the world, and then he got into a motorcycle accident that left him in a coma for a while. He got out of it about 6 months ago, and ever since he has been unable to do anything that isn't Christian or worshiping God or stuff like that. Long story short, we got him to general conference, and set a baptismal date with him for the 13th. I will be honest, I doubted it would happen. Due to the accident, he was a bit... disabled from a mental standpoint. He probably has the mental capacity of a ten year old or thereabouts. 
This guy was definitely prepared. Over the course of the week, we would have times where he was not there for the appointment, because he liked to take walks. For example, Thursday we couldn't find him anywhere. We prayed, rode around for a bit, and finally decided to move on. About a mile down the road, who would be walking on the side in the middle of nowhere but Ricky. Apparently, he was taking a walk, and decided to come home then. Go fig. Anyway, the lessons were incredible! He simply accepted whatever we told him as doctrine, just like that! The only thing he needed more than one minute to accept was Joseph Smith, and that only took one night of thinking. He is amazing. I'm going to make another message with the rest of my week, because he deserves his own spot
