January 31, 2011 E-Mail

It's been a pretty good week. We have done a lot of tracting. It's been weird though, almost everyone has been really nice to us. People are usually always pretty nice, but there are always some rude people. But lately everyone has been very friendly. Having such a big area means we will be doing tons of tracting. Especially because that area hasn't been worked to good for the past 4 or so months. But good things are happening over there. We actually had 2 investigators come to the new ward yesterday. Yesterday was our first long church day. I think we were there from about 8:00 in the morning until 5:00 at night. We had a little lunch break in there but that was all. It was good, I should be very clean of my sins after taking the sacrament 3 times in one day!

There really is no new news. Megan got a calling yesterday and she is the new gospel principles teacher. I thought that was pretty cool. She will be an awesome teacher in there. We do currently have another investigator working to be baptized on February 19th. His name is Jorge. He is one of the people in that part member family. Everyone is moving to Idaho, but he is staying a little bit longer, so he will probably be baptized while he is here. The other two will get married and baptized in Idaho. Jorge is an awesome guy. We left him with a chapter to read in the Book of Mormon. Well he read the chapter, he also studied the topic in the gospel principles book, and he studied it in the bible. So he really is doing what he needs to in order to progress. His only problem is coffee. He has cut back tons and tons. But he hasn't quite quit yet. We are going to visit him on tuesday night so we will be talking a lot about the coffee. Mom, you asked if we ever cook for ourselves. Yeah we do. We don't have to very much though. Tony, the guy we live with usually cooks for Beth which is the older lady who we live with. She hardly ever gets out. I think since October she has only been out twice. She is on oxygen and in an electric wheel chair. So this bus thing has to come get her anytime she wants to leave. So it's usually only if she needs to go to the Doctor or something. But one of her Doctors usually comes to the house. So that's it for this week. Next week I'm not sure when or if you will get an e-mail. We are going to go the temple and I'm not really to sure if we can still e-mail or not. I guess you will find out. I'm so grateful to be part of this gospel and to be able to share it full time. I know that as we apply faith in our lives, anything is possible. Once we put all of our trust in the Lord, he will carry us along. I love you all! Have a good week!!!
