11/21/11- Letter to the World

Hello World!

It's been a fabulous week!

We got to teach Danial and Alexis!  He wants to be baptized!  We watched the Restoration and they fed us an amazing dinner and we talked about the Priesthood.

We walked a LOT this day!  For 5 hours!  We walked to the hospital to see a less active member there and then continued on.  We tracted some mansions (and I mean MANSIONS) for about three hours with no success and then walked home.  On the way home, we walked by a person riding a horse and I "open your mouthed" her.  O ya.  We got to go to the Stones (recent convert) for Taco Tuesday, and that was awesome!

District Meeting!  Elder Vellinga (who looks like Chazz for the record...he even said it was way weird when I showed him a pic of Chazz) is the new district leader and he's training a new elder from Alaska--Elder Cluff.  It was a wonderful District Meeting.  We taught Anton that night with some very boisterous members.  Anton said he wants to just go through all the lessons!  He's still willing!

We got to go to Luthercare (the nursing home we volunteer at).  It was ice cream day, so we took one of the women down and ate some with her.  The activities coordinator gave us free meal tickets to come on Thanksgiving!  So nice!  We'll come in the morning and visit with some of the women and then eat with them!  We got to teach the Bushda/Archer family.  They're doing well.

Walking all day again, but it was AWESOME!  We finally had some success while tracting!  We got a new investigator--Juanita.  She let us right in!  I'm so excited to teach her.  She GETS it.  We went to dinner with the Ward Mission Leader--I love their family to death!  Their daughter gave us two referrals!  Rock on!

This day was AWFUL until about 4pm when we met with someone we'd set an appt with the day before--Janell!  She is another new investigator!  She is SO wonderful!  She's half Native American.  We went to the Bushda/Archers and read the story of Ammon with them.  Sis Bushda likened the scriptures!  They finally clicked and she really got it!  It was great!

After a wonderful church service (two of our investigators came), we went to see Sis Bell, who's not been feeling well.  We dropped by Alexis' and talked about tithing.  Then we went to the Wong's.  Bro Wong agreed to the bishop's invite to officially take the lessons!  They fed us an AMAZING dinner and then we taught tithing.  The rest of the night was studies.

We went to York today for a turkey bowl.  We ended up playing at an AWESOME playground while the Elders all played football lol.  It was fun to watch for awhile, though.  I LOVE football!

Love you all!
