Good evening! Sorry this letter is so late, but we had a full day. We went to D.C. This morning for our final preparation day of the transfer. We were able to see a few different places. We did a lot of walking around to all of the outside memorials. To be perfectly honest, once you have seen in one time then after that it gets pretty boring going again. But it was still fun. There were a lot of people. I hope that my next area isn't in the city because I do not like walking down the street with that many people. I like my little areas like Warrenton. We did a couple of service projects this week. One of them was to our family we are working with to get their 9 year old son baptized. We were able to talk to her for a while and figure out why things in our ward didn't work out for them and why they have their records in the Ashburn ward. We were able to connect pretty well since they attend their and also have family in the ward. We have their baptism set for this upcoming Saturday the 11th and we are really looking forward to that. We had a lesson with our newest investigator Sherri as well. We talked about the Gospel of Jesus Christ which consists of Faith, repentance, baptism, gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. She really liked it and we think that she will continue to progress. I am really grateful to the members that we have in is ward and he encouragement and the assistance that they offer to us. That Wednesday that we had a lesson scheduled we got a phone call from one of our ward missionaries who we had come with us to the last lesson and she asked if we would like her there this time as well. I was really grateful for her in her willingness and desire to help out. The reason last week that we had to switch our preparation day was because of a funeral. The funeral was for a 28 year old who died from cancer. We ended up staying at the church building for 5 hours helping. It was sad to see the family, but also reassuring to see others testimonies of the spirit world as well as the afterlife and that we can be sealed together forever. When we were right near the Washington monument we saw some Jehovah's witnesses with there little stand with information. I decided that I had never really learned what they believe so we went and talked with them for about 10 minutes. I learned what scriptures they refer to when the call God Jehovah, and a few other things. They gave me a little book about what the bible really teaches. I spent about 40 minutes looking over it and comparing beliefs as well as similarities. It's interesting to see what different religions believe. If nothing else I believe that we left a really good impression on them and had a good conversation. I wish I had more to write about, but it's difficult. I think with this week being transfers there will be much more to write about. Thanks for all you do! Love you!
